heart broken she finally ran and then... someone help!


Recommended Posts

ok after1 month of solid tinkering 1 month of putting it off in anger and then 5 mins searching the internet the problem with my car not getting fuel to the plugs was solved and also the timing was off 180 degrees so the car ran beautifully for 20 mins in the garage so as we decided to go take it for a spin to get a pack of smokes and a celebration 12 pack my dad wants to get the timing just right he rotates the dizzy not even 10 degrees and the car shuts off we pop the cap off and see whats going on check the wires to the coil and distrib all that jazz and then the coil starts gushing out red oil so after that freaky experience we get the coil from the 6 series and put it in the 02 wire everything back the way it was and then the distributor points wires start melting we tried each wire to see the culprit couldn't get it right then finaly we seem to figure it out the dizzy gets a jam in it took it apart an end connector from a wire fell off and into the housing we got it out took the distributor apart and cleaned all the points and put it back together now the key wont engage the starter it just clicks. the clicking is coming from what looks like a relay box behind the distributor on the firewall we disconnect it and then no more clicking but still no crank

if anyone can read this with out punctuation and answer ANY of the problems at least i can solve one 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
