Fuel line and Weber 32/36 question(s)...


Recommended Posts

Well, after about three months of a gas-smell-free interior...it's rearing its ugly head again. About three days ago I began to notice the smell and each time I drive her, it gets worse (enough so that when I pulled it into the garage the entire garage smelled like gas). So, I'm now ready to pull the plug and complete the fuel system overhaul I've been putting off for the summer/fall.

I plan on using the POR fuel-tank repair product (as I'd already purchased this back when I was trying to diagnose the original problem), replace all the fuel lines and...that's about it. My question is...the clear and blue fuel/vapor lines that run through the interior...are these readily available and if so then where can I source them out? Do most BMW shops carry that kind of stuff...or is it more of a special order item? Finally, since the return line under the car is no longer used, can I opt to use this line and just bypass the interior all together?

Second issue, after hearing what great gas milage the Weber carb had (of which I wasn't seeing)...I decided to re-adjust the carb (the mechanic that installed the engine/carb said his 'guy' did a thorough tune-up prior to me receiving the car back). Anyway, lets just say that the carb was only tuned on one side...the other was WAY out of adjustment (no wonder my gas milage was total poop). Anyway, gas milage is much better (and so is performance/response) however there is a slight flat spot between 1300-1500 rpm. Does anyone know a remedy?

    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
