it does. the Blue manual shows to drill out a split pin, if a solid pin it will punch out, but it is pressed in and needs a little angst with a mallet and punch. Do you need to need to replace or swap the gear? because from your previous post, the top sleeve over the advance plate does come out without removing the gear.

ok guys...i just got home from the office and took a pic...see the loose spring on one side and the round metal object on the left...the piece on the left appears to be on a spring that's bent and jam'd up...i don't know what it is or how it's supposed to look but from the looks of the spring, it appears that that solid pin on the left should be horizontal, with the end against the dizzy's inner housing instead of vertical

the roll pen looks solid to me...how to we remove the innards up top to get at the springs

Solid pin has been set and has like a solid rivit head. Need to drill it a little with a drill bit smaller than the pin, so you can expand the pin again when it is re-assembled. Expanding is done with a center punch in the drilled hold and a block on the opposite side to keep the pin from drifting out the other side.

You will need to drive the pin out with a drift punch that is about the size of the pin diameter to keep from expanding the pin head while trying to remove the pin. Might need a vise to hold the gear while the pin is driven. Avoid clamping the gear to the point of damaging it, but it is stout.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

esty - in that bmw manual page - look at the botom

photo of the exploded parts view - if you remove the felt

pad and pick out the tiny c ring - you then lift the entire

mechanical advance mech. out. The botom drive

gear stays put. All your trouble is with the top mechanical

advance mech. your picking out parts # 3, 4, 5,

If the dizzy drive gear is a roll pin vs a solid one, I've had good luck removing one by drilling, using a bit that's slightly larger than the roll pin's ID. What will happen--as you drill down into the pin, the bit will usually grab the pin and start it rotating, when that happens you can just pull it out.

Or you can simply get the right sized punch, support the gear and start whanging away. Once the pin has started out, it'll go the rest of the way much easier.

Esty,

What is the number on your distributor, if i have one (i have several laying around in good condition) and you want it, i'll send along for shipping $$ from 24210. not sure you can find the springs although a good rebuilder probably has them and that may be the way to go. just send it off to one of the rebuilders mentioned in several discussions and you'll get back a practically new unit and you still have option of buying a reconditioned unit (assuming you can find matching number dist.) yours looks like it may need more than just a bit of spray cleaner and compressed air.

Good luck

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
