  4. Thank you all for your advice. It has been very helpful. I especially appreciate the comments/advice by Preyupy. To answer a couple of the questions raised, my car is a 1967 BMW 1600 vintage race car. The engine has a 30/1000 overbore bringing the capacity to 1602. The last Reinz gasket I installed lasted about 4 averaging 5 vintage racing events a year.
  5. Anyone have any advice as to the best head gasket for a race engine with 12:1 compression ratio? Need to replace mine, which was a Reinz gasket. Thanks.
  6. Good one Steve! As it turned out, I only thought my 1968 parts car had the earlier cv/ujoint setup. When I checked again I noticed that someone had converted it to CV joints at both ends at some point so I simply took those apart serviced them and installed them on the race car. The boot on the original let go during qualifying dropping oil on the track so it wasn't appreciated by my fellow racers and that ended my race weekend so getting 150K out of these will outlast me and the car.
  7. Many thanks for your responses 2002FAQ members. I have decided to convert to CV joints from a later model.
  8. I have a 1967 BMW 1600 vintage race car and noticed a pool of oil under the left rear axle today. When I investigated I found that the CV joint boot had split and what appears to by heavy gear oil was leaking from it. CV joints are used on the outer end of the the axle only and the boot is transparent so you can see the oil inside. Later 2002 models had both inner and outer CV joints and from what I can gather, they were lubricated with CV joint grease. Can anyone on this forum explain to me what I am dealing with here? In the workshop manual for the car it refers to draining off the oil in the CV joint when removing the boot, but there is no mention of what that oil is or how it is lubricated by the oil. When I search for a replacement online, all the suppliers show a black rubber boot with a package of grease for this car, but clearly, there is no black grease in the CV joints on this car. I should mention that I have a 1968 parts car and it also appears to have oil in the CV joint boot.
  9. I am in need of a rebuild kit for a dual brake master cylinder for my 1968 BMW 1602. I've checked local suppliers, Ebay, and online BMW parts suppliers including Ireland, and can't find one. I would purchase a new MC but I have discovered that this one is quite rare as it mounts directly to the pedal box and the mounting bracket is on an angle (as in figure 9.9 on page 129 of Haynes Manual) rather than horizontal. I haven't been able to locate a new or rebuilt one. The bore is .812" (20.64mm). If anyone knows of a source I would greatly appreciate being informed. Alternatively, if anyone knows of a comparable part, that would be valuable information for me. Thank you.

  11. This topic may have been addressed before on this forum, but I can't find it. I have a 1967 BMW 1600 track car with a stock braking system including a single master cylinder. For better and safer braking, I want to convert to a dual master cylinder system. If anyone can provide me with the process, including parts description and advise of any pitfalls, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.
  12. Shouldn't be a problem as far as the roll bar is concerned; however, a local guy has indicated that he wants it so if you are coming to get it, send me an email first as it may be gone.
  13. I have a custom made 4 point roll bar that I removed from my 1600 race car when I installed a full cage. The main hoop rises above the driver's seat only and there is one forward (removable) and one rear brace. There is also a camcorder bracket to attach to the forward brace. I was going to cut it up but thought that someone on this forum might be able to use it. Should be OK for a track car. It will bolt into any 2002 or 1600. It is available free to anyone who wants to come and pick it up. It is located near the US/Canadian border in White Rock, B.C. I could email a photo if necessary.
