Has anyone used these Nord-Lock lock washers?

The youtube demo is pretty compelling. I asked for some samples, but thought there must be some engineering-types on our board who could help separate the snake-oil from useful hardware. Sure would make it easy to get rid of all the castellated and safety-wired nuts on the 2002.

they work great! especially on header bolts. Just make sure they are installed in pairs in the proper orientation. And make sure you use harder material that what you are bolting. for example, SS nord-lock for aluminum is okay but SS washers on hardened steel components will not work. I use the steel washers for everything. You can get them from www.mcmastercarr.com

Bosch uses these on the fasteners for their conveyor systems which typically have fastener loosening issues. They do work very well but as noted they must be harder than the material the fastener is made from. They are also not much thicker than the standard washer.

    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
