  1. Hello guys, The May 1972 BMWCCA announced a new member "Myron Levy, 3016 Fallstaff Manor Ct., Baltimore, Md. is the lucky owner of a 1970 Turbo May 2002". http://db.nccbmwcca.org/1972/1972_0500_Tech.pdf So there was a turbo MAY in the US in 1970!!!Is this the first? Who knows Myron Levy (Baltimore area)? I'm looking for pictures of this exceptional car, especially from under the hood to see how things were mounted. I own half of a Turbo May kit and am looking desperatly for mounting details. Thanks, Michel - Belgium
  2. Hi everybody, The September '71 issue of BMWCCA http://db.nccbmwcca.org/1971/1971_0900.pdf mentions that Hoffman was going to import the MAY turbo kit in the US. Did he finally do this? Does someone have pictures, mounting instructions or articles of this kit? Is there any car with the kit in the US? Thanks, Michel - Belgium
  3. Hi guys, I'm installing E30 valve guides with dito stem seals (I was told they should last forver!). These valve guides are 50 mm instead of 52mm for the original ones. How much must this valve guide come out at the stem seal side (the new seals are smaller)? Was 15mm for the original ones, but I can't find this for the E30 type. Somebody done this before? Reference BMW 11 12 1 263 642 (TRW 81-1162) Thx, Michel - Belgium
  4. Hi Conkitchen, Interesting project! What brand of exhaust manifold and turbo are you using? How did you adapt the Kfisher to deliver more fuel as the pressure moves up? What boost are you running? Thanks, Michel - Belgium
  5. Hi Niclas, What is the effect of using a 304 cam on a turbo engine? Corky Bell states that "high-overlap cams create a huge amount of reversion", p163 "Maximum boost". The max Bhp of your engine come at 6000 revs which is relatively low speed, so the cam didn't shift the powerband to high revs such as with atmospheric engines. Do you have dyno's with the stock 264 cam? I would like to know what's the net impact of the cam in the 335 Bhp. Anyway, congrats with this hot project! Greetings, Michel - Belgium
  6. Hi Fasstfzr, Terrific project! What exhaust manifold are you using? And what exhaust? How did you come up with the ct26 idea? I'm thinking of putting this on the standard 40PDSI Solex carburettor, but donno what jetting to use!!?? Thanks, Michel - Belgium

  11. Hi there! I have to change my valve guides (worn) and valve seats (to hard ones). Now they come in standard size and in oversize. What do I have to order? Does the hole gets bigger when you punch out the valve guide or not? Same question for the valve seats? Can the valve guides be changed without heating the block? Thanks, Michel - Belgium
  12. Thanks John, Yes, I see the "3" on the edge of the chain sprocket flange, just next to the TDC notch mark! So it is a 300° BMW, whow! It is a bit odd to identify a cam with only one digit. I wonder why they didn't put the part # 11 31 0 631 009 on it as on the orange sticker on your picture. I understand you'd prefer to go with an E12 head and have the journals line bored rather than using the 121TI I've bougth with the cam. In that case I should use the tii "raised grand piano" pistons 9.5:1. I thought that the 121TI (with a smaller combusion chamber) could give more compression with tii "121" pistons giving 10:1. What did you do for your car and what is the result? Cheers, Michel
  13. Hi guys, I've just bought a 300° BMW Motorsport cam on E-bay. How can I be sure of this? On the cam I see: 5(raised) R118 0083.2 M(double M) 439 The first bearing is 45mm and the middle is 44mm. This cam fits in a 121TI head R12102500809 with the same size for the bearings. Is this a matched pair? What inlet valves should I put in this head : 44mm or 46mm? Do I have to change the valve seats for unleaded gas? Thanks, Michel - Belgium
  14. Hi everyone, On the scale I read 4cyl=8cyl x 2. So this is ok for the scale. But where do I connect the red and the black wires??? Thanks, Michel
  15. Hi guys, I can borrow an old Micronta 22-1641A (ex RADIO SHACK/TANDY) dwell angle/tach to adjust the dwell angle, but the manual is missing. There are three positions selectable : dwell / tach / points. Where do I connect the red and the black wire for the three cases? On the analog meter, there is an indication for 8 cyls and 6 cyls, but not for 4 cyls : which scale should I use?? Is it worth doing this procedure or is it OK to simply set the points at 0.4mm? Thanks, Michel
