  1. So it can be installed backwards: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/76209-whats-wrong-w-this-picture-hood-tension-bar-issue/ Worth checking
  2. The arms look okay to my eyes there. In that pic the hood looks uneven in the two front three-bolt hinges - the pass side looks fully slotted back (down) but the drivers side looks more mid-slot. But it could just be the pic angle hurts telling. Was that the hood adjustment setting you had when the hood wouldn’t close straight? Those bolts are typically pretty symmetrically aligned left and right - if they’re not your hood will close crooked. FWIW - some folks do just run a removal prop-rod ( though mainly with glas/cf hoods...
  3. My post was how to pull the folding arms on the ends of the torsion bar off the fender tops. The earlier tip of loosening the three bolts slightly on each forward hinge and shifting the hood forward/back a bit should let the hood fully descend. But watch for having the hood forward enough to clear your kidney grill at full open - too far back and they’ll try to violate physics... I don’t know if it’s possible to have the bar installed and torsioned backwards. ?? Can you move the folding arms manually into the correct geometry for hood open- & folded-states?
  4. Yes, towards the back of the car on that slotted mount. If having them mismatched side-to-side helps with your hood alignment, then slide both back an equal amount... this slide rearward is best done near the finish of all other adjustments.
  5. The lower arm connects into a SLOTTED hole attachment on the fender top (behind the big nut). Moving it aftward in the slot raises the arm off the fender when the hood is closed... given your hood is aligned properly. When it’s rearward in the slot the arms won’t touch the fender when the hood is closed. Tom-too

  9. Ha! There are no numbers (ISBN, ASIN, or ESPN) on this book anywhere, Steve, I looked. The only number found inside is the BMW part no. 01 09 0 035 276. Adding that ASIN must’ve mangled the book title. It’s “The cult car” not “The Cult Car” - as clearly seen on the cover. I know I entered it right myself...
  10. BMW Profiles The BMW 02 Series The Cult Car Certainly no one would yet venture to call the models of the BMW 02 series vintage cars. It will not be disputed, however, that they have earned a distinction as "classics" in more recent automobile history. Even today, a BMW 1602, 2002 or 1502 can occasionally be spotted on the roads. These cars, the newest at least twenty years old, are sometimes still driven by their original owners, but the majority are carefully maintained by ardent fans of this unique series. Its models have gained cult status amongst enthusiasts, awakening emotions and memories, and symbolizing a very special attitude to cars. The BMW 328 or 507 may have imparted a sense of myth to the BMW brand, but these dream cars always remained within reach of only a few. BMW was able to gain more widespread popularity with the 02 Series, when the fascination of BMW became a tangible experience for many more drivers. At the time, the models of this series represented an entirely new departure in cars designed to integrate compact size, visual appeal and dynamism - attributes which have lost none of their relevance to cars built today. Each edition of BMW Profiles aims to give you, as an admirer of historical BMW vehicles, the opportunity to look more closely at the roles they have each played in their respective day and age. Editions of BMW Profiles appear at irregular intervals, each focusing on a specific topic relating to the history of the company and its products. A vivid portrayal of the BMW vehicles presented, in relation to their historical context, emerges through the reproduction of original documentation, such as drawings, photographs, press releases and reviews, advertisements, sales catalogues and posters. At that same time, it becomes clear how BMW has developed over the years into the brand personality that it is today. We hope you will find this edition informative, entertaining and exciting. BMW Mobile Tradition [1998] Published editions: Profiles 1: BMW motorcycles from Munich - 1923-1969 Profiles 2: BMW 501/502 - Aufbruch in Wirtschaftswunder (in German only) Profiles 3: The BMW 02 Series - The cult car Profiles 4: BMW motorcycles from Berlin - 1969-1997 Book Author BMW Mobile Tradition ISBN B000WM1PLE Number of Pages 139 Year of Publication 1998 Publisher BMW Mobile Tradition Category BMW 02 and NK General Knowledge

  12. Hi Steve. Cool new feature! I tried to add a book, but when it prompts me for category - the 3 categories at the top that you created are all greyed out... so I can’t put a new book in the 02 categories, only the ‘general’ ones... Tom

  14. Sorry, Steve - that's all I got. There's no separate dizzy listed for 49-state vs Cali. And nothing different to break out '75 or '76 from the above two I cited. It's not like my Boasch tech archive data hasn't had a few wrong or missing bits in it. Bosch shows it like ALL USA 02s - built 12/74 thru 6/76 (end of production) for either Auto or Manual were one of those two same dizzys. So I've no idea why your car runs an Auto-designated dizzy. But they might be close enough someone (incl. Franz at der factory) swapped it, or your tranny got swapped after the motor was built?? FWIW, the predecessor USA 2002s, mfg 72 up through 11/74 used the same 0 231 180 008 dizzy, regardless of gif they were Auto or Manuals. Tom-too
  15. y'all 'muricans realize this = 02er, right? Nothing new here, move on. lol I do like that answer though. Thx to Mr. Andreas, for ALL you folks do. And, oh yeah, Mr. Ray...
