Spark plug wire retainer bracket on valve cover needed

Hello- Looking to purchase a clip/bracket that retains wires on the valve cover on early 70s 2002.  If you have one of these for sale, let me know. It is small enough you  can drop in a regular envelope and put in mail. Any help is much appreciated.

... The correct one thought is a closed loop...

The details of the original loops may have varied somewhat over the years, e.g., due to different suppliers, but the original clips on my ‘76 are typical, and represent Dan’s point.


Below, my ‘76 in August 1983, July 2018, and today (final two close-up shots).

 

Regards,

 

Steve

I believe these open-end clips were used in various other locations, e.g., the wire for the cold-start mechanism on tii’s. This runs along the left (top) edge of the valve cover. The clips on my ‘73, below, were new, in 2014, from BMW, and, thus, might not match the originals.


The second/last photo is a factory photo of a 1971 tii, taken — we believe — at the time the tii was introduced in April 1971.

Yeah, I think what he has there is a clip that mounts on an upper intake manifold bolt and holds emission vacuum hoses on later '02s and 320s. I'd bet that the hole in it is 8mm instead of 6mm.

Steve, What did you use for the bundle wrap on the ign. wires?


Dan,

 

The blue wrap is the original conduit from my ‘76. On ‘75 and ‘76 cars, it matches the smaller blue conduit used to hold the wiring for the emissions controls. It cleaned up nicely and I re-used it. On earlier cars, it was generally black. The black stuff on my tii is the new stuff still sold by BMW — well, it used to come in two or three diameters, and now it only comes in one diameter.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve
