  1. ouch https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F274092314960 ”used to be taiga” ? Price seems a little optimistic
  2. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F274092314960 not mine.. probably not exactly what you’re looking for!
  3. Oops I missed this batch - Pat please let us all know when the order window opens up again!
  4. answering my own question and might help others: this is for the F-series Frankfurt models, produced around 1974 the right hand DIN 6 pin connection is for the Traffic Broadcast Decoder (obsolete) connection AKA "Verkehrsrundfunkdecoder" or VRF
  5. the ca. 1972 Frankfurt has 2 DIN connections, a 7 pin on left and 6 pin on right. I know the 7 pin is for input like the Becker outboard cassette deck I have. What is the 6 pin on the right for? is is also an input, just a different connector? or something else like an output? I haven't been able to find info on this config, despite "google" help. In particular, looking to install an amplifier and wondering if this 6 pin DIN can serve that purpose or if I'm stuck connecting amp through powered speaker leads.
  6. I ran around Berkeley and Palo Alto in the 90s so just didn’t cross paths... The brotherhood of the “square 8” ... (that isn’t square ha ha) trivia: also find these on Shelby Mustangs
  7. And the Lucas LR/FT 8 on roundie bumper mounted. were on the car when I bought decades ago, always thought I’d replace with round but never got to it and now I sorta like the unusualness and oh-so-period look.
  8. +1 on CTEK, using now for years with great results; prior bargain no-name tenders - no so much.
  9. FWIW back in 1990 I worked with Dave Cruse at Engine Specialties in Oakland (alas, long gone...) to rebuild/refresh '72 tii engine, for a nice 'street' set up. I didn't really know much at the time but he was a big M10 engine rebuilder and did a lot of SCCA race engines both tii an non. At the time he specified (and we did) this: - 9.5:1 compression - 39mm exh valves - 275 cam regrind - stage I port/polish - KF rebuild/recalibration by Wes Ingraham (back when he was first adding KF to Spica expertise...) - (stock tii intake and exhaust) I don't have any dyno or A/F data before or after, but it's been a great runner ever since then ....about 64k miles later going strong. Any drivability issues I've had since along the way have been vacuum leak and ignition related...
  10. this is too much fun, but: easy button? https://bimmerclearance.myshopify.com/products/sun-visor-set-reproduction-51161825793-51161825792
  11. as have many others, for the record installed this pump BMW 16141179232 last year and has run flawlessly - and quietly (not that anything was wrong with the old (original!) pump, just seemed like a good preventive measure) +1 on recommendations to check the actual fuel pressure reaching the KF pump inlet to confirm supply is reaching, easiest place is to insert pressure gage as T off the line to the cold start injector should have pressure as soon as ignition turned to on and pump activates this is the pressure level that is regulated by the orifice/valve at the KF outlet as a closed loop back to the tank, most of the fuel flow volume returns to the tank rather than going out through the injectors
  12. Jeez, a year’s worth of engine bay grime is all it takes to dull the shine a little. (Fit from IE is good, although I did have to call for one was missing, sent out no issues) Now I wouldn’t do the blue hoses... that’s where I draw the line
  13. For many years I used an oil temp gauge built into drain plug (used to be the standard thing, available from Korman and others); occasionally the wire would pop off lug on sender but otherwise worked fine. But ultimately the gauge/plug developed cracks in the brass and started to leak - it was an integrated unit. I'm going to experiment with making my own by tapping a regular plug and installing a gauge with NPT thread. Haven't gotten around to it yet but have the parts. Probably would be smarter to weld a bung into pan itself, a bit higher degree of difficulty.
  14. Add me too, running count is getting up there!
