Fitting this alternator on my tii- m3 s14


Recommended Posts

I have this on hand and know for a fact that it is a good unit. The unit in my tii now is a solid mount with a poorly made solid mounted adusting arm and requires a spacer to fit as well. I have had some trouble with the alt bracket loosening and while I think I have it under control I'd just feel better about having a rubber mounted unit in there.

So my favorite option is to switch out the front cover with a stock tii unit cover-

yea or nay?

Barring that I'll make up a spacer and fit this one but I'm wondering if I need to switch out the pulley or not. It is larger than the belt but I see no reason that it would not work anyway.

What is that black thing hanging off the back by a wire in the 2nd pic? Radio suppression or something? Since my current setup has nothing like that I'm thinking (hopefully) that I can ditch it.

And in the 3rd pic what is supposed to attach here under the bolt with the #4 on the head?

Isn't that an internally regulated alternator? If so, you will have to bypass/remove your stock tii one. Have you examined both front covers to see if they are interchangable? I'd just put a spacer in there. Wonder if the front suspension spacer pipes would work if cut down?

    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
