I don't know what is causing this surging.


Recommended Posts

My car is a 1967 2000c with a 2002tiim engine as my car did not have an engine when I bought it.  After correcting my reversing of the supply and return lines the engine was running great. I suspected a leaky head gasket, as my engine sat for 10 year empty and after getting it running and very little mileage the oil looked funky and the antifreeze looked cloudy so I replaced it. The pistons and head looked decent so I cleaned things up and put it back together with the new gasket.  Now I am getting this consistent surging and cannot fiqure it out.  I did have an odd thing when I reassembled and set crank to TDC I noticed  that my KF was unexplicably not at tdc and I know it was before I stated?  So I readjusted the belt to align it as well.  Prior to the head gasket the engine was running great so I am perplexed why the KF was out of sink. I removed the valve cover again and verified the head was correctly set to TDC and verified #1 cylinder valves were open.  I also installed a proper backflow on my vacum line.  I tried reversing the backflow and no change.  It is currently allowing flow/vacum into the intake.  Any help would be appriciated. 

Thanks.

Both valves should be closed and on the back side of the cam lobe. If the valves were open on #1 then the engine was at TDC on #4.

I said #1 was open but I meant closed on the flat side of the cam lob.  The timming chain gear can only be installed one way due to a prong on the gear and a hole on the cam.

It is leaking at the injectors.  I have tried tighting but I cannot get them to seal.  I installed new copper washers but they don't seam to be sealing.  I found the leak with carb cleaner so I am not sure what to do next.

How long have the injectors been sitting?  If they had old fuel/water, then the base of the injector may be corroded inside.  After removing the injector from the engine, you can carefully take the upper part out of the base.  Examine the parts and soak/use an ultrasonic cleaner.

So, as I read it, you've removed the manifolds and cylinder head and then reassembled everything. How did you reassemble the the linkage between the KF pump and the throttle body?? Its quite possible that something's shifted with all that disturbance and new gaskets etc... have you re-set the linkage as described in the Blue Book?

 

In my experience, the timing of the KF pump doesnt make a huge difference to mid range ,  i don't think that's your issue.

    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
