Starter Wiring


Recommended Posts

got my new starter in, but now im having trouble getting it wired. the problem is that no matter how i wire it, it either doesnt turn at all, or starts turning when my key hits the accessory setting, and the only way to get it to stop turning is to turn it back off, which kills the engine.

i have two cables: one comes from the dash, and splits into the manifold and the carb

and one leads into the larger loom and then the positive terminal of the battery (this is NOT the main power cable, which comes directly from the positive terminal and connects to a post on the starter with a nut)

Never mind, Im an idiot!


Turns out my auto lever wasnt pushed allllllll the way forward, and thats why it wasnt spinning the starter. turns out the wire that connects to the carb and manifold doesnt even go to the sstarter (which should have been obvious, since it goes to accessory)

    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
