Distrib. Housing Seal Let Me Clarify,


justinevert

Recommended Posts

Working on the distributor housing -backing plate.

There is a o ring that is front the bottom portion of the oil pressure sending unit on the head.

I just put the the seal (with a little oil around it, in the hole) with my pinkie finger and just cover it up with the backing plate and forget about it? Would it not blow out of it's position when oil is ciculates or does the pressure unit hold it in place?

Thanks, Once Again!!

The question is not that we broke a few rules or took certain liberties with our female guests.

We did ;)

no - not next

to the oil pressure switch,

but furthest away from the switch.

just that special sealing washer on the bolt,

torqued the same tightness as the others - NO sealent,

just dry or smear of motor oil on the threads

see the post a bunch of lines down where I posted a repair

manual diagram of the bolt location

Just did this myself, and it was my thread that the diagram was added to :)

The far outside bolt next to the oil pressure sender is the one that gets the special washer under the head of the bolt. No sealant or anything on that, but I used a thin smear of silicone on both sides of the gasket based on a couple different recommendations.

The one thing that bit me was the rear head bolt on the drivers side (the one next to the oil pressure sender). There is oil pressure running through this hole, so make sure your head bolt and washer are perfect - no scratches, ridges, etc. If everything is perfect then you should not leak there, but I also ended up smearing some silicone on that washer as extra insurance.

The drawing does not really clarify anything. The seal is separates from any bolting and is right in front of the oil pres. sensor. Does the sensor hold it in place when oil travels through its circut? There is a bolt to the left of the oil ring that I have been told is subjected to the oil presure but that is about it. I really don't want any leaks or failures.

    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
