  1. What's new in this club
  2. Lively winter months. We have ice on 4” of snow. No need to fret, warm garage, cocktails, and tunes. Went thru Abandoned process, got title, got budget, Rock and Roll.
  3. Hi, Car fired up tonight. Got a electric fuel pump, tapped the carb a few times, Thumbed key and it started. Ran it a minute shut down. Checked everything, fired it back up and ran it for a warm up cycle. Ran good, surprisingly, idled but carb was slobbering. Problems i found were: Gap on points closed up, Missing its Ign. voltage step-up feed/wire, Fouled plugs, Missing plug wires, Missing its cyclone valve? Engine ran well, settled into a blubbering idle. Warmed up, ran cool, water choke worked, 13.5V at the battery. Shut down, did compression test. Cyl 1234 155, 148, 155, 158 psi. That will motivate you.
  4. Psst are silly questions ok? My turn signal stalk seems to be on the right side of the steering wheel??? Is that original stock position? Can it be moved to the left (normal side) of the steering wheel?
  5. Hi M2M3, was underneath the car Sunday. No other surprises found. The rear subframe mounting areas are solid, light surface rust but nothing major and no repairs needed. I havent pulled the back seat yet and checked the tops, is that a concern?
  6. Have you pulled rear seat to check subframe bolt area? Have you got it in the air yet to really check everything yet? "In field under cover" usually means moisture trapped under car and lots of rust out of sight. Curious to see how your car faired!
  7. Pedal box area is hammerred. maybe one or two other small holes. Rusting upper fender front. Over all very solid Southern car.
  8. good find! how is the rust situation underneath?
  9. Newbie in the woods. Found a Roundie in a field under a ratty cover Screaming Save Me!! Hey to the 804.
  10. hmmm...verona/zinno............if not me,then...grice?
  11. Someone in a Verona square tail drove right past my house as I was working out front and didn't stop or acknowledge. They are OFF the list 😂
  12. I spotted a squarelight Fjord 2002 with driving lights about 1 week ago. It was heading NB on the GW Parkway. I waved from my 69, but no response.
  13. You need to add your signature details - or maybe not😉
  14. Crap - can't make it work! https://gph.is/2cgp28K
  15. I got a bunch of thumbs up today also. None from any of the many bmw's I passed. Other brands and folks on lawns accounted for the signs.
  16. Each time my wife and I take our '72 out for a fun country drive we will find folks who have an '02 story or flash their headlight - like the in the '70's - and give a thumbs up. Today it we earned 5 such recognition's. 2 from BMW 2 wheelers and 3 from current BMW's driven by younger brand lovers. We decided we would keep track of them. It is great to see the roundies are recognized by a broad group.
  17. all parts gone, including a bunch of extra stuff. nothing ended up in the trash thankfully...and my shop refrigerator has been restocked with IPA....
  18. I have a buddy up there that can pick it all up whenever suits you. PM incoming. Thanks!
  19. taking the "shut in" time to clean out the parts storage. getting rid of the stuff in the below pics. FREE! that catch is...it must be picked up from my place in Alexandria, VA by Sunday 12APRIL. PICKED UP. NO shipping. NO holding past that date. anything not taken away by Sunday is going in the trash bin. take a part, take it all....just take it! FREE!! (but if you leave some good IPA i will not complain.....;-))
  20. Orange squaretail with koogle trunk lip spoiler in a driveway near alexandria ave. car look very nice from the street. this belong to anyone here? i have lived in this neighborhood for 20 years and have never seen this car before...
  21. My name is Jeff Gomon. I am Three things, a 2002 owner, South Central Region VP/National Board Member and lastly, in need of your help. Terry Sayther has approached the Board and requested the formation of a stand alone non-geographical BMW CCA 2002 chapter. This chapter would allow for greater communication of 2002 owners and groups everywhere. To get things started signatures from 250 members are needed for the chapter petition. We are over 1/2 way there and need your help. Further, once the chapter has its charter, we will hold elections for a Board and Area "Governors" in all regions. Follow the link below for more info and sign the petition. Below is Terry's message. Thank you!! ------------------------------------------------------------- "We're working our way toward the 250 signatures we need to form a 2002 Chapter of the BMW CCA, and we are over half way there! But…that was the easy half. We need more that a hundred additional CCA Member signatures to meet the requirement. SO---I'd like all of you to think of additional ways we might get more people to sign up, rejoin the club so that you can sign up, give membership gifts so that your friends can sign up, and spread the word! Go to https://2002sforever.net/sign-the-petition/ and sign up now! We are under-represented on the west coast---somebody get those guys motivated, please If you've been procrastinating---stop that! Sign up today. Do it! Many thanks for those of you out there who have been spreading the word and encouraging friends. We appreciate your efforts! Happy Holidays---Terry Terry Sayther Vintage Bimmers terndeb@saytherauto.com Terry Sayther Automotive 512-442-1361
  22. Thanks for the great description and info, Jim! Congrats on the new E30 as well! I'm still gonna try to find someone to look over my shoulder as I do it. If I could convince you, Grice, Marshall, or all of you to stop by we could have a great little get together. Maybe I could entice people with the world's best crabcakes and some good beers? ?
  23. You should be able to do this very easily yourself. Just put the engine at TDC for cylinder # 1 and remove the old distributor (keeping track of where the rotor pointed to the # 1 cylinder plug wire). Insert the 123 dizzy lining up the rotor so that it points in the general position of the old one, then connect the new electrical wires. With the ignition on, rotate the dizzy housing so the green LED inside the body of the dizzy just illuminates (keeping in mind the position of the # 1 cylinder). That should allow the engine to fire the first time. My 123 is USB and not Bluetooth - but bet the way you upload the advance and vacuum curves is similar. You should start by searching for the Bosch dizzy curves here on the FAQ - believe they have been posted before - OR someone may have provided their 123 settings (degrees and RPM). Jim
  24. Would anyone local be willing to help me install a 123 Bluetooth distributor and new coil? I can't seem to find my old shop manual and would really like someone more competent than myself to guide me through this. My 1600-2 needs a few more miles on it before winter and its blocking my M5 from moving, so I'm kinda in a jam here. Of course, I will provide a great meal and booze.
