  1. Brasso.
  2. I bet they put the gear selector rod #6 on the wrong side.
  3. The bag is definitely the genuine article. The screwdriver is a reversible German. I think all this talk of green, red and grey is a load of modern Mumbo Jumbo. BMW accepted whatever met spec. That yellow one has been in that bag for at least 30 years that I can verify.
  4. I dont, but would like one. They are used by all the tyre fitting places round here. I do have a knock of copy of the AC Hydraulic DK20HLQ. http://www.ac-hydraulic.dk/en/products/hydraulic-jacks/ My one complaint is that, though it has a low entry, it very quickly become a high entry, so I always have to use it with a block to stop the arm contacting the sills first. I think that there are more practical and much cheaper low entry trolley jacks out there.
  5. From a May '73 tii The 17mm end if the larger spanner has a crank in it to fit the rear brake adjusters.
  6. Surely the latching mechanism is designed to over centre and lock open. I cant believe Germans designed any other way?
  7. 1987 03 21 Steve (Conserv) will be along to give us the real skinny. He loves block dates!
  8. I must admit that I wasnt prepared to pay more that 10p/12.5c for an o-ring, so I bought one of those generic o-ring kits for £2-3. It had a dozen or so o-rings of the correct size. That was two winter layups ago and no leaks yet.
  9. The coolant temperature sensor ( the one with the "L" connector) is only used by the cluster gauge and has nothing to do with the k-fish loom. The wire heads down underneath the manifold and joins the main loom between the k-fish pump and starter motor. Heres a k-fish wiring diagram I made up when I was sorting out my cold start problems. I also knocked up a new loom whilst I was at it.
  10. Thank you Steve, my pleasure! Green/White and Black/Green wires say reversing light.
  11. Havent the fogiest. Heres my Jaymic fitted 5sp complete with red bullet connectors, Guido bolts done right.
  12. Correct, you only get them in North America. OP, when was this car imported into Aus. The red connectors look like the work of Jaymic.
  13. They probably moved it over so you can see the tdc timing mark.
