Regarding your friend with a Schnitzer engine. Does he have a Schnitzer engine or a BMW M12/7 head / slide throttle? I remember seeing some one post up somethng on this site years ago (I want to say from S. America somewhere) that had aquired a BMW M12/7 head, cam tray, cams, slide throttle, trumpets (same guy maybe)??? Either way I would be happy to email you, that being said Schnitzer BMW engine parts are impossible to find and M12/7 parts are "nearly" impossible to find sorry to say. All are exhorbitantly expensive, used and crazy expensive new if your lucky enough to stumble on to them. A few years ago a fair number of the M12 parts were still available, albeit crazy expensive. I purchased two sets of slide throttle return springs for my Schnitzer slide throttle (about $175 4-5 years ago). The list price for the magnesium cased M12 (tii type) Bosch (kugelfischer) injection pump was over $15,000.

no doubt about that. Never ceases to amaze me where this stuff ends up. Hard to tell from the pics, but the head looks pretty good, doesn't appear to have been cut too many times. The cam carrier, hard to say. The slide throttle - very interesting. Looks like someone cannibalized an old Schrick slide throttle and adapted a manifold to it to work with the Schnitzer intake port. I will email you off line.
