Distributor flange questions


Recommended Posts

Ok so I bought an 02 that was turbocharged or partially turbocharged. They had a oil line routing off the flange of the distributor to the turbo. Well I was looking online and see many different configurations for the flange. Some just have a bolt, some have a breather and some look like they may have an oil pressure sensor. What is the proper configuration? I've looked on RealOEM and the flange they have appears to have no hole to mount anything. Also when viewing multiple pictures online I cannot find any definitive answer. 


Will update photo with my mobile.

Is your plan to go back to the turbo or stick with the downdraft carb?


If staying with the carb then you just need to get an oil pressure sender and remove the bolt and reducing nipple from the port in the distributor housing. 


If you are refitting the turbo and it is not factory then consider drilling and tapping a new port on the oil filter housing or replacing with an S14 housing.

The original configuration is quite simple, as seen below.









Thanks Conserv and Toby and everyone else that contributed, I guess I was getting confused by seeing the other photos with the VDO sender unit. I could not make heads or tails of what actually belonged here. Couple this will some flanges I found with no hole whatsoever and I was very confused. 


So for history's sake and maybe to help other dolts like me here is what I need

Or  61311354274 for aftermarket at Autohausaz.com


A whopping    $1.97 for a Uro part

or $19.93 for BMW OE Part

BMW doesn't make the sender units, so the higher price from BMW simply reflects the "BMW" on the box vs VDO (the OEM manufacturer) or another maker.

    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
