engine bay wiring questions


Recommended Posts

I put in a different m10 in my 2002 and I am a little confused on where some of the wires go, It is only the alternator and starter wires I need help with. There are the two  red wires, the white with a brown stripe, and the I believe black with yellow. Most of the wires come from the same loop besides one of the red ones show going along the front of the engine compartment. Any help is appreciated, I can provide more information if I am being too vague.IMG_0983.JPGIMG_0985.JPGIMG_0986.JPG

The large red wire with the rubber boot goes to B+ on the alternator.  The other end of that goes to the positive battery terminal.  Not sure what other wiring you are referring to but there is a large soldered connection on the outside inner fender.  send more pics.  Also, what year car and what year engine are you installing?


good luck, hope this helps a little,

Forgot to say the year sorry, Its a 1975 2002 now with a bored e21 block and head with 318 fuel injection, a turbo, and megasquirt. Just getting the final buttoning up before I can try to get it started. Do both these wires go to the starter?



Heres the engine, mostly together but a few parts that still need to be installed

    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
