I believe it is a 1985 22R engine. I have a chance of picking up a free truck that needs an engine rebuild.

Anything especially difficult or easy? Anything I should know? Best place to get the parts?

There was actually a Toyota Truck that pulled about 150' before he blew engine, tranny and who knows what. He was pulled out the way with a golf cart!

Pretty straight forward engine to build. Use only OE timing components or you'll be back in it. Fel-Pro overhaul gasket set is reasonably priced if you don't want to spring for OE. Clevite / Top Line bearings will hold up also. My 022r

The 22R is a pretty stout motor and is the Japanese mini version of the "small block Chevy." A stock rebuild is pretty inexpensive and building horsepower beyond 140HP is very expensive. Small ports, small bore, & long stroke produce good torque at low revs. I've built several and found a great source for high quality parts and machining. He's a racer/machinist who specializes in the 22R. Email me if you want his contact info.

    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
