Help with 123 Bluetooth dizzy install

Would anyone local be willing to help me install a 123 Bluetooth distributor and new coil?  I can't seem to find my old shop manual and would really like someone more competent than myself to guide me through this.  My 1600-2 needs a few more miles on it before winter and its blocking my M5 from moving, so I'm kinda in a jam here.  Of course, I will provide a great meal and booze.

You should be able to do this very easily yourself.  Just put the engine at TDC for cylinder # 1 and remove the old distributor (keeping track of where the rotor pointed to the # 1 cylinder plug wire).    Insert the 123 dizzy lining up the rotor so that it points in the general position of the old one, then connect the new electrical wires.  With the ignition on, rotate the dizzy housing so the green LED inside the body of the dizzy just illuminates (keeping in mind the position of the # 1 cylinder).  That should allow the engine to fire the first time.

 

My 123 is USB and not Bluetooth - but bet the way you upload the advance and vacuum curves is similar.  You should start by searching for the Bosch dizzy curves here on the FAQ - believe they have been posted before - OR someone may have provided their 123 settings (degrees and RPM).

Thanks for the great description and info, Jim! Congrats on the new E30 as well!  I'm still gonna try to find someone to look over my shoulder as I do it.  If I could convince you, Grice, Marshall, or all of you to stop by we could have a great little get together.  Maybe I could entice people with the world's best crabcakes and some good beers?  ?
