That's all I got for now. More details and probably a tech article to come later.

Looking forward to learning how you managed to remove the crimped-on bezel without damaging it or the case...

PS.   the mechanical 72-73 tii clocks--and the 1600 clocks that substituted for tachs--are usually pretty easily repaired.  The problem is usually the points that control the solenoid that winds the clock spring--they're burned and don't transmit current, same as a bad relay.

Removing the bezel isn't too difficult, but doing it cleanly is nearly impossible.  Luckily the 1974 shroud for the clock hides the imperfections. 

My last '02 was a '73 tii.  Back in about 2003 I wrote what I think was the first how-to on repairing the earlier clocks, and had it posted to my GeoCities site.  Its too bad the '74 clocks are not repairable.

Finally done with my Volvo clock conversion. Unnoticeable from the outside. The ground is a little different in the VDO clocks, so I had to solder a ground wire that I could attach to the case. Turned out great. I'll do a full write up in my blog in the coming weeks.

    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
