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,

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.

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.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

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

    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
