tii Injection Piping maintenance


kremington

Recommended Posts

I decided to replace the venerable, yet rather amber, injection piping on my '74 tii. I just purchased a new complete set and I'm interested in knowing if anybody has some tips for keeping it nice and white - preferred cleaners, treatments, do's/dont's, etc.. Thank you!

The fuel and whats in the fuel will turn it the "amber" color, so as previously mentioned nothing you can do. The good news is that it will take many years most likely (depending on how much you drive it) to start to discolor it......

Just wanted to mention that the new sets- unless they have been changed- need a little 'love' to fit up right. The biggest problem that I had was interference with the bell crank and mid throttle. Its actually dangerous as it would have worn a hole in the injection pipe if gone unnoticed. I used a zip tie to hold the line in place for quite a while and was able to then take it off. Use the clamps that hold them together and make sure they do not touch anything.

Hello!

Yes forget about it...they change color fairly quick, I put fresh ones on

3 months ago, and they are "PATINA"ing...nicely I may add...

Also as noted, installation is tricky in that they foul linkage etc.

I did not use heat gun to adjust shapes as you will see the new

lines are not close to the original factory installed lines.

A bit of preloading of the lines before tightening down on the

nut can help with moving the lines out of danger and yes I also

used zip-ties prudently to help move away the lines from danger.

Previous links have pointed out the zip ties can be removed after

a period of time as the heat from the motor with the zip ties neatly

"heat sets" the shape of the fresh lines.

Personally, I have not yet cut my ties as I can't even see it.

Cheers

    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
