Is your car a Tii?

 

I have one of the OE BMW front harnesses for a ('74) Tii that I bought two years ago; I  have not used it as I want to add many circuits and decided to make my own full harness using the cloth original equipment tape; I bought all the connectors and wire along with the proper tools to do the job.

 

This was supposed to come with the alternator harness, but did not. I will make one for you so it will be as it should have been. It is basically the starter / headlights / engine compartment wiring. This one came wrapped in vinyl tape, not cloth.

 

PN: 61-11-1-356-875

Though you probably won't like the cost. Real OEM: $1076.00 / NLA; BMW List: $880.80 / NLA; My cost was  $660.00 or thereabouts. Pm me if you are interested.

 

Note too, that the "harness" is not just the front and rear; there are many small harnesses e.g. the heater fan, Tii fuel pump etc. that are in addition. Also there are different harnesses for early and late carbureted cars.

 

Alternatively, you might contact Double 02 salvage in Hayward CA, as I recall they may have  used harnesses, but those too will be 40 years old too.

No Mines a Ti I have a bunch of deletes as mine's a track /road car race alternator , no disi ignition etc I will probably end up wiring it like a Hot Rod but use the original switches.I have a roll of BMW cloth tape so will wrap it accordingly .But if a stock dash harness is out there I'll buy that for sure . I have twin headlights , fog lights & may delete the heater , we'll see.

 

Thanks for the info , much appreciated.

I haven't taken mine apart to get to those "small harnesses" yet in order to reproduce them, but they should be easy once you have them.

 

In all it seems like you need some "custom" work for your purposes.

 

My only suggestion is that sometimes it is best that you make sure that the wires are warm when you wrap them so you can bend / route them easily.

 

Let me know if you need any help.

 

Best.

Einspritz- what was your source for the proper plugs and connectors? Also, what did you do for wiring? 

 

I am seriously considering rewiring my 71 02 for everything I want/don't want.

 

Thanks
