  1. This made my day. What a gorgeous track. With a lot of lurking trees. Thanks for sharing. This is the best. Scott
  2. If you are on FB, you should join the RGB group (Rivertown Gearbusters). Then you'll be in on when we do events and drives, etc. I'm sure I'll meet you at some point - looking forward to it. Scott
  3. I saw it on the Facebook. It's a neat car for sure. You gotta get it going and get it to Vintage next year! Scott PS I'm up in Cincy so I know Jake and Ben, etc. Have known them for years.
  4. Oh you know our friend Ben down in Kentucky, I suppose! Scott
  5. Here are the two articles I have, just to share them with the other tii owners. The "Jim's" article referenced above, and a more thorough article which goes through adjusting the valves, ignition system, syncing the pump and throttle body, etc. It does not cover adjusting the AFR via gauges or anything like that. When I was in college, about 5 miles from campus there was a Sunoco station that had racing gas - I think it was 105 octane. The tii LOVED that gas. It was amazing. At least we have 93 around here. Not too bad. Scott Fuel Air Ratio Adj tii.pdf TechBMWProceduretiiFI.pdf
  6. Some of my experience in no particular order: If you want to keep your distributor the way it is, and just have it rebuilt, Advanced Distributors can do it. I did this a couple of years ago, and I believe it helped the car. I was only a few hundred bucks. I actually sent them a used distributor from a friend, so I didn't have to take my car off the road to get it done. http://advanceddistributors.com/wordpress1/ I also replaced all the springs in the linkage, and got the plastic cap Einspritzer references. And I bought the three linkage pieces, measured them, and installed them. Just going for a solid baseline. One thing I have not done (mostly because my car runs fine) is sync'ed the pump to the throttle. I recently had an exhaust bung put in my tii's downpipe, so I can tune it (or at least see what it is doing currently). That will be a project for next summer. I do have an old Roundel article where they talk about tuning a tii's AFR without the data from an AFR gauge. I'll be curious to see what Einspritzer says about that. It makes a lot of sense to me to get the linkage and the ignition straightened out before attempting AFR things. Big picture, I view it as eliminating variables. There are many to begin with, but once the linkage is solid, and the ignition and timing are correct, then you can move to the actual KFish part. Just keep on eliminating variables. I notice my tii runs a little different in summer and winter - I theorize it is the blend of the fuel, or the ambient temps, or a combination of both? I don't know that for sure, of course. I have not heard about that gauge of wire issue in regards to the fuel pump. Totally makes sense. Very interesting. I did have an idle hunt that cropped up - I was able to adjust the screw inside the tuna can a tiny bit to eliminate it. I made it a little richer and that cured it. Really want that AFR gauge... Scott
  7. I hate myself for liking this so much... Scott
  8. Yeah looks great. Nice color combo - very classy. Scott
  9. Good luck! I think I'll try to watch the auction wrap up, if I have time. Scott
  10. People lose their minds over that color. Overall, I guess I could have seen that car going for a bit more and I wouldn't have been surprised. Sure looked nice to me - kind of my sweet spot - nice, but not "afraid to drive it" nice. I might have preferred the Wheeler Dealers one for the same price. Really I just want my tii back... Scott
  11. $36k. The dude that said he was for sure buying it bailed at $33k. No idea what that means. I'm just the messenger. Scott
  12. Hey I'm interested in this little devil. I'll send you a PM. Scott
  13. Stages - that is correct. This time around, we really did everything except the nose and a few other tiny things. So the nose will not be as big of a project, we don't think. All in all, I'm sure it will be pretty big. Not sure when I'll do the nose - might be a little ways down the road. We'll see. Scott
  14. Later in the month. BTW, we're not messing with the nose. We're thinking of it as the next phase. It needs more work than the seams filled, let's put it that way. That project would entail replacing those two "dog bones" on either side (behind the front fenders), and working on the nose itself - pretty sure it took a bit of a hit on the driver's side at some point, so there needs to be a little work done on it from that perspective. Plus it's a little rusty here and there. I'm just chunking through it as I can, vs. doing it all in one shot. Scott
  15. Sorry my car caused you distress. What about sale caused your angst?

      Angst?  Distress?  I said I believed you. 


      That's a cool car - hope someone bought it that will get it on the road again and enjoy it.

      Or did you mean when we digressed into talking about the cowl notches?  That didn't really have to do with anything we thought was right or wrong - Steve likes to try to figure out a lot of details on these cars, and so that topic came up naturally when looking at the pics.  Again, I hope to see that car at some 02 event down the road.
