Kugelfischer Injector Pump Testing?


Recommended Posts

I just bought and picked a 72 tii, finally! A po had removed the entire injection system. Needless to say I want to put it back on. The guy I bought the car from said he though it was ok, but its was removed when he bought the car. Yesterday by chance I was able to talk with the mechanic that did the work. He said the reason it was removed was the car was running rich and they believed the injector pump was bad. So it was cheaper to put a downdraft Weber than a new pump.

So my question is this, prior to me installing everything is there a means to bench test the pump and injectors? BTW I am in New England.

Bosch Germany is his largest

single customer

turn around is 4 days

cost for pump and injectors is

about $600. this is a gaurenteed

no brainer to eliminate the fuel

injection as a problem.

good luck

as I stated down a few threads below this - tii injection pump subject.

best to back track all the nut

twisting-hacks 'diagnosis' and

start from the beginning.

ASSUME nothing is really wrong with the

car - it just needs 'CORRECT' service settings.


any cam shaft lobes worn off ?

cam shaft timing?

injection pump timing?

valve clearance?

condition and time of ignition system?

condition of the fuel supply up to the injection pump - pressure reading?

pump control linkage and warm-up regulator function?

injector nozzles?

the Kugelfischer injection pump is the LAST place

and least troublesome part of the motor to blame for poor running

it's all the stuff connected, adjusted(not) around it

Thanks Darien .. as the injector pump (and the entire system) is not currently installed its hard to test how it works and the systems around it. I wanted to make sure it was okay prior spending the time re-installing everything only to find out it needs rebuilt. My feeling its that its was removed for a reason...

I talked with Hans at H&R and he's going to bench test it for me. Seems easiest and cheapest way to go.

    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
