I like koni's, but I am dutch. I use 02 koni's on my early nk. If you need a source to buy new, let me know.

Hey Bill - Long time no news  Is the TISA finished?

Not much progress through the summer because Terry was so busy with race support activities.  Those are done, so he's hoping to have more time for the TiSA.  Just about everything is ready to go back on the car except for the front bucket seats and a suitable radiator.

Bryan Purves in England (making the seats) is confident of getting the correct red vinyl next month from a supplier in Germany.  The seat frames are said to be all ready, and he has the black vinyl.  He's promised me extra material to do the rest of the interior so it will all match.

Some suspension parts are in photo attached.

Still looking for a decent, period correct radiator.  If anyone out there has a lead, please let me know, even if it's one that needs to be re-cored.

Thanks.  Bill

Is the TISA radiator different than the 2000 radiator?  I happen to have two of them (2000)...condition is currently unknown, but I can have them pressure-tested I think.

According to the PDF parts catalogs I have, the radiator is shared among all NK models, including TISA.

The part number is 17 11 1 103 732

 

I have two of these and am willing to part with one if both are useable (testing needed on both, I can take them somewhere for that), feel free to send me a PM if interested.  Would be glad to help get a TISA back on the road! 😃

I would love to hear folks' thoughts on the differences between these two radiators...I see both styles in online photos of NKs.

 

Left is from my 09/66 2000 which came to me with a 1.8 (118 head) and the Right one is from my 11/67 2000 which came with a '75 2002 engine (e12 head).  Neither are assumed to be original...the left seems to be dated 11/84 (which aligns with when that car was brought to the US, if that helps).

Right it’s an nk radiator. Left looks like an 02! 

 

Ah thanks!  I figured there was a simple explanation!

@mojojoy, will check with Terry.  Should know by early next week. 

Also waiting to hear his thoughts on Duggi's offerings.

Thanks.  Bill

No rush from my end, they're not going anywhere and aren't on the "open market" 😃

One more item--Bryan, the seat maker, has told me that he must buy a large volume of the red/maroon vinyl, so anyone interested in getting some for projects should send him an email with your request.  Bryan@bryanpurves.co.uk.

You can tell him you heard about it here.

During my visit to BMW Classic in September I herd directly from the head of BMW Classic that the Oxblood material is available and to contact BMW Classic directly to inquire. He showed me a set of TiSA seats recently recovered for a customer restoration project.
