Anybody have a spare dipstick tube mount lying around?


Recommended Posts

I'm after the one that doesn't include the mount for the air pump like what's pictured, but instead just the small square piece that the tube mounts into. I suppose I could just cut the piece off the one I have and machine the edge, but I'd hate to ruin an original part I might need someday. 

 

At any rate, if you have the small square mount that I'm after and are willing to part with it, please let me know. Thanks.

FWIW: I made one once with a sheet metal plate and a steel tube and just welded it together. Now I suppose one could also just use a threaded brass pipe fitting and fasten it with RTV and a securing nut to a covering plate.

I would just chop the smog pump  bracket off. Not many people still running a smog pump.

The chances of your using the smog pump again are slim to none..not even California requires one for 1975 and older cars.  Anyway--from experience--if you examine that bracket closely you'll probably see that one or both of the pump mounting holes are all worn due to the rubber mounts failing--and your not noticing 'em. 

 

That's what happened to my '69; I removed the air pump around 1972 because it made the engine stall when cold.  Then I got tired of that bracket in my way when I changed oil filters, so I got out my trusty hacksaw and sawed it off.  A bit of filing on the cut edge, and presto--a Euro dipstick holder.

Make sure you cut off the holder and not the dipstick 😉...

I know some dipsticks (certainly not 02 owners!) but have never cut one off, either human or steel...

Funny part is, I have literally taken apart my project storage area, gone through every box of spares (even the ones for cars other than 2002’s) and I can’t find my f’ing dipstick anywhere…

 

Go figure.

    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
