AlpinA 2oo2 LSD resto


Recommended Posts

I started this project months ago thinking I was going to need my diff all done for the Monterey event earlier this month.  When it became apparent back in June that there was no way my car was going to be ready I put the brakes on everything I was doing (by brakes I mean not stopping but just taking my time).  Sometime after AlpinA sold my car to Ricciardo Ricci, and then he turned the car from an endurance road car to a hillclimb specialist, he changed the diff to a 5.86 factory set-up.  5.86 gears are useless to me (and in addition both the ring and pinion were missing large chunks of metal out of a number of places on both). Thanks to KBM02 I secured a really nice 4.11 gear set and engaged Pete (Pete's Gear Shop, Hayward, CA) to do the re-build.  The diff has a AlpinA (factory) 75% LSD as well as an AlpinA 1-stage oil pump.  Pump is driven off the axle (V-belt is not installed at the moment).  There are two (2) twelve row oil coolers that are mounted to the rear axle to cool the diff.  There is also a pulley mounted on the front yoke that drives the alternator which is mounted in the trunk.  Will be posting more images and some before/after on my blog later this weekend for anyone interested.

    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
