Hi,

Someone care for some pics of my project from Sweden? :)

This is my project and I bought 3 years ago. It´s been repainted twice and the first time in the early eighties. Overall it´s in a good shape.

This is my plan:

Bilstein Sprint shocks

Jamex sportsprings, lowers about 2 inches.

Urethane bushings

My new engine of course! =)

E12 head with Schrick 304 degr camshaft

Oversized Tii pistons

Dual Weber 45

Step Headers and a 2,5" exhaust with one or two mufflers.

My goal is the make a daily driver in the summer with a strong engine and a thight chassi.

Beatiful car. In style it is very much what I'm targeting in my "Goodfellas Streetmachine"- project. Even the wheels are just what I'm dreaming about!

Welcome on board.

is the blue stuff clay? to check valve to piston clearance? how much clearance did you have?

Thanx for the nice feedback! :)

The rims called SMOOR Roadster and I bought them in Germany. 8*13 wheels with 195*45*13 tires. Looks kinda crazy. ;)

I haven´t enough clearance between valve and pistontop so i have to modify the pistontop. The blue thing is clay to check clearence.

The clutch release bearing you will need to use is on from a E21 323i to work with the 228mm flywheel. To me it looks like there is a part missing from the front case of the transmission you have, like someone has cut a piece out on the bottom of the bell housing.

Where in Sweden are you from? I have a good friend from Trollhättan that visits the US every year. I hope to go to Sweden next year during the summer time. Skål!

Thank you for that information! So bearing from 323 it is. Yes, that´s correct. The previous owner has cut a piece out, but I don´t know why! I don´t think it gonna effect the function though.

I´m from Stockholm. Sweden is nice during the summer, but this summer it has rained alot!

regards

    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
