  9. Very cool. Turbo M10 motors always make me smile. I've always been curious about building a low boost m10 turbo. I look forward to your long-term thoughts down the road!
  10. brrrrrrrRrRrrRRRRrrRRrrrrrRRRrrrrrrKK? Umm, I got nothing for this. Even if there's more 'heat', a water cooled engine carries this away. It won't make the pistons grow, or the cylinders shrink. Go drive it hard. Good luck! t
  11. WTB 318i Intake for EFI Conversion

    $100 shipped will pm pics tomorrow
  12. Which head gasket set?

    ...but this is not something you need to pull the head for, if the rest of the gasket is working ok. You can pull the upper cam sprocket cover, lift the edge of the head gasket, get sealant under it, push it back down, and seal above it. That almost always does it. If it's really bad, I've even cut the thing- it's tough, so you have to mean it. Often, it'll really be leaking at the valve cover, as Andrew says- you can have the cam sprocket cover recut- measure carefully- or just use rtv. Oil- resistant rtv. Permatex Ultra Black, for me. This area isn't under any pressure, so all you need to do is get it clean, sealed well, and tightened evenly. It'll leak like a sumpitch if you tighten the six bolts to the head before the 2 to the lower cover, And it'll leak worse if you do it the other way! heh t
  13. Battery being drained

    Do I? Or, did I? I don't any more. They were coming in through a little rust hole beside the gas tank. Good eye spotting that trap. If you look closely, you can see that I added cardboard sides to it. I had three misses / snapped trap, no victim. Added those sides and got eight in a row / no misses. [ better mousetrap ] Mice sometimes chew wires, which can also lead to a battery drain.
  14. Battery being drained

    Next question, do you have mice in your car? Not trying to be rude but it looks like a loaded mouse trap In there... Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    The trunk lights are repurposed license plate lights. The switch was not a BMW part. ( : but it is now : )
  16. Seatbelt Help--Aftermarket/BMW/Harness

    Yes, I am still around. PM me if you want to discuss seat belts options. I always advise fellows to purchase new seat belts from BMW if they can afford it; blunttech will give you best prices, tell him Rabbi referred you. BMW belts are sometimes not available separately from BMW Classic for both sites so you might get two passenger sides or two driver sides. My belts are very good (of course!), as good as BMW belts because I use the highest quality German/USA aftermarket parts available.They will work either side. I believe my prices are reasonable, but not cheap either, about the half of BMW prices. I can't make them less expensive without compromising quality, and I am not a volume manufacturer, nor a buy-low-sell-high ebay vendor. happy sleeping

    '76mintgrun'02 is that a trunk light? Is that a factory option or something aftermarket? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  19. Harry Bonkosky Karma Bomb!!

    We are now officially at TRIPLE our original goal! (Admittedly I donated the last $14 myself but I was getting nuts (more than usual!) just sitting there watching it be so close but not there...
  20. Are any of these boosters still available?
  21. 2002tii brake booster with master cylinder

    Curious if the booster is still for sale?
  22. Factory (Blue Book) Repair manual 2002

    PM not sent!! PM message body on your account isn't available. Please PM me.
  23. Small BBs and small cylinder piece

    A new carb would be the recipe. Get a Spanish Weber from a reputable vendor that will set it up for your car. It's good money for a good start. 😃
  24. Doesn't Harvey have 110 Low Lead?
  25. WTB Pre-76 2002

    Another interested buyer in the Bay Area here. I am very familiar with E30 through F10 platforms (8-10 cars in the last few years) but new to E10. Not concerned about it being a small to mid-size project (mechanical, even body work) but have a budget (probably up to 20-25k) for a nicer option. I strongly prefer pre-74 cars and really like Polaris color, ideally on the west coast, but open to other locations
  26. You should not be running those Schroth belts without the anti-submarine piece. I had these very belts in my track car. Be sure to reinforce the floor area if you do mount this piece, the thin sheet metal of the floor isn’t enough to hold the belt in a crash.
