Looks like I need a timing cover ?

1973 base m10 engine. Is there a part no for the upper and lower?

And can anyone point me in the right direction. Roger Tii does not have them and eBay there is none .. Thanks des 9b11cba68f44fed72290b8b6deb0ac23.jpg

Front timing cover, upper and lower.

The picture you post is a lower tii cover.

Don't pay new prices- those things tend to survive when the cars die.

Post your location in the WTB section- I'm sure someone within 100 miles has one you can pay $50 or less for.

 

Dunno where this "base" word originated- there are M10's, there are tii M10's, there are M10B20's, there are M10B18's, there are M12's, there are S14's...

Is there a possibility that the tii is different then the base or it doesn't make a difference? a7e3667b8d321e9b96ccd8c17f4fe61b.jpg this is the one I have been offered ?

Will it work. The no# are all off ? Thanks dez.

the posts are right. base model now seems to

describe carburetor cars. the cover you are

showing is for a 1973-1974 tii motor. the 1972

cover has the alternator bracket cast into it.

also as stated above these parts out last the body

by 50years or more. if you are unable to find a

reasonably priced cover contact me. i have multiples

lying around the shop.

Thanks Stone!! I may need one.

The question is ...? Why would the analysis "my mechanic"state that I needed a new one ? After a steam clean to locate a oil leak .... This was the determination.

I smell a second opinion.

They can get cracked or suffer damage, during previous removal, etc. It's rare…but it happens. Also - they often need to be machined, when the block is decked (resurfaced) to eliminate potential leaks, during an engine rebuild. 

 

If your car is not a tii, I (and many others) can easily get an affordable one, sent your way. If it's a tii (fuel injected) car, you will end up paying more - as they are less common, and unique to tii cars.

Thanks for the input . An oil leak is the diagnosis. I was not under the car this time.

That said . Timing covers leak oil...... Probably do the gaskets as well . Again thanks dez

Hi if you have one I would love to know the $. And perhaps we can get that rolling. Picture would be great. If you have the top as well? That would be cool

Bleah.  so it's a RealOEM/BMW thing?

 

It's a dumb word that doesn't add anything to the description other than words.

It also obscures the fact that most US 2002's had 'options' added by Hoffman.

 

Just like any good businessspeak, I guess- useless AND obfuscatory...

On further examination this afternoon I came to the conclusion that the timing chain must've been bouncing up against the case ultimately creating a corrosion crack hole . Ultimately an oil leak ,chances are, I might have to do the tension rail ,the guide-rail, the piston spring ,camgear and crank gear !does anybody else know what else I could possibly look or have fun with while I'm in there? Dez

Or is this all necessary?

You should post a larger picture, or two.  Both sides of the cover.  Seems unlikely that it would be damaged, unless someone dropped it off a roof.

 

Oopps more posts noticed.  Never mind.
