  1. This is for those of you that also love 2 wheels jewels. There is a small and beautiful museum of classic motorbikes in Spain called Museu Moto Bassella. It is located in the middle of nowhere just in a service area of a small road. You can hardly find it in a tourist guide. But believe me if I say it is one of the best museums I have ever visited. There is a 2002 machine in the museum, but as you can now expect it is not a BMW. In fact it is neither a car, it is a motorbike. It is a Derbi 2002. In the 70s our market had a powerful motorbike industry and brands like Bultaco, Montesa, Ossa and Derbi were worldwide known for their good off-road products. However those brands also offered road motorbikes, mainly for the very much protected Spanish market. In the 70s Derbi put in the market a two strokes/two cylinders (that could be the reason of its name: 2002) bike that was the top reference in our market. Today all those brands are part of the history but you can still enjoy a good view of them in this nice museum. I hope not to have disturbed you with this off topic that brings me back to the age when I was a teenager. Regards: Pepe de la Parte.

  2. I think there is nothing to worry about. Classic temp. gauges display actual temperature withing a range from cold (blue zone) to hot (red zone). Everything between blue and red (white) is ok. Many customers used to pay to much attention to the temperature indication and they used to complain about driving the car at high temperature. Car brands have solved this problem by two ways. First, modern cars govern the temp gauge trough the body controller and it does not display actual temperature of the engine. The gauge rises from blue zone to the middle displaying actual temperatures. Once in the middle of its stroke, it remains at that level no matter the actual temperature. If the engine temp rises to certain level, the the body controller moves the temp gauge to the red zone. Have you ever wondered why modern car gauges point to three no matter the external temperature? Second way they have solved the problem, the temp gauge has been deleted in many modern car. What a pitty. For the good or the bad, our 02s are not governed by chips. Regards from Spain, Pepe de la Parte.
  3. La verdad, era un destornillador viejo de mi padre al que le corté el mango para otros usos. Con lo que quedó hice la herramienta. Me alegra ver una respuesta en castellano. Gracias. Saludos: Pepe (España) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- To be honest, it was an old screwdriver of my father. I cut the handle for certain aplication. Then I took the handicaped screwdriver to make the KF tool. Good to see some words in my mother tongue. Thanks. Pepe, Spain.
  4. Two DIY tools for adjusting the KF. I hope it helps. Regards from Spain, Pepe.
  5. I fully agree with jimk. In a CD system dwell angle is not a parameter. For those of you that still keep points, condenser and coil in the original way, here you can find some tips about dwell angle: 1- Dwell angle is the angle during which the points are closed. It can be expressed in degrees or percentage. The dwell angle of a set of points that never close is 0 degrees or 0%. The dwell angle of a set of points that never open is 90 degrees or 100%. Values that are given in degrees can be converted in percentage just dividing by 0.9. Perhaps the values indicated by pilotnbr1 correspond to the same values but with different units (59-65 degrees --> 66-69 %). 2- A dwell multimeter is needed to set the dwell angle. Connect the negative wire of the dwell multimeter to ground and the positive wire to the wire that connects the coil with the points. If you cannot identify the wire that connects the coil with the points then choose one of the two wires of the coil. If the dwell multimeter display shows a dwell angle it means you have selected the right wire. If not, just connect the positive wire of the dwell multimeter to the other wire of the coil. 3- Dwell multimeter is a good invest and not necessarily expensive. Both analogic or digital dwell multimeters are ok to adjust the dwell angle however the accuracy of the digital one cannot compete with the taste of the analogic multimeter. The decision is up to you. 4- Check the dwell angle from time to time. If the value is out of the correct range, adjust it. That way you will prevent innecessary headaches. Regards from Spain, Pepe.
  6. DIY: Tool set to adjust the intake throttle and the injection pump of the Tii and Turbo models. You need a couple of drill bits of 4 mm and 5 mm diameters, a screwdriver, a roll of electric tape and cold welding glue. - Tool to lock the throttle: Roll up a piece of electric tape around the sharped end of the 4 mm drill. Done. - Tool to lock the injection pump lever: Cut a piece of 35 mm of the 5 mm drill bit (cylindrical end). With the cold welding glue, paste the cylinder of 35 x 5 mm to the screwdriver in an angle of 90º. Done. Pepe de la Parte
  7. The LSD differential of the 2002 is a non preloaded type. That means it only has the LSD effect when is being driven. So the static test consisting in raising the rear axle and testing the diff by turning one wheel by hand will always tell you that is a non LSD type. The only way to check if the diff is a LSD type is by unbolting the back cover of the diff and having a look to the inside. The differential of the picture is a LSD type one. However, as far as I know, the 320i's differential is preloaded. No matter the % ratio of the diff, you should feel that you cannot turn by hand the wheels in oposite directions. Otherwise is an open differential. Regards from Spain, Pepe de la Parte.
  8. I installed a 79/88C thermocontact at the bottom of the rad and it works fine. It switches on when the water gauge is pointing to 2 and switches off when the gauge is pointing to 3. The fan only runs at low speeds. Regards from Spain, Pepe de la Parte
  9. You are still on time to bid. Turbo 4280001 is being sold in ebay.co.uk. Good luck if you bid for it. Regards from Spain: Pepe de la Parte. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-2002-TURBO-CHASSIS-NUMBER-ONE-/300550945694?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item45fa3b7b9e
  10. Plan on spending 30 to 35,000 euros for a good one, FOB Europe. For your reference, this is the market prices of the 02s in the German market extrated from Oldtimer Markt magazine. German market is considered a reference all around Europe. As you can imagine, Note 1 means top condition while Note 5 means a lot of hours working in your garage (in the best case...). The red arrow in an angle of 45 degrees means a moderate tendency to increase the prices. I confirm that, at least in the case of the Turbo, price in the market is aligned with this info. During the last edition of Techno Classica Essen (highly recomended http://www.siha.de/tce_uk.php) I saw how a Turbo that was sold in EUR 38,900 and yes, the car was almost at top condition. Regards from Spain, Pepe de la Parte. Sold in Essen (Germany) for EUR 38,900:
  11. Yes, I admit that Spain is very far away from your country. However, Internet allows me to share with you all some good news online. My car is in the front page of the most relevant classic car magazine in Spain: Motor Clásico. It happens once in life! In its edition of May, MC compares the 02 obruT and the M3 (e30). Well, no need to mention which one I would choose... Regards from Spain, Pepe de la Parte.
  12. DIY tools are fun and useful. Here is my contribution. Tool 1: A set of tools to adjust the intake throttle and the injection pump of the Tii and Turbo models. You need a couple of drill bits of 4 mm and 5 mm diameters, a screwdriver, a roll of electric tape and cold welding glue. - Tool to lock the throttle: Roll up a piece of electric tape around the sharped end of the 4 mm drill. Done. - Tool to lock the injection pump lever: Cut a piece of 35 mm of the 5 mm drill bit (cylindrical end). With the cold welding glue, paste the cylinder of 35 x 5 mm to the screwdriver in an angle of 90º. Done. Tool 2: A useful screwdriver modified to put the rear brake shoe springs in place. Only a screwdriver is neded. Heat the screwdriver and bend it in an angle of 30º as showed in the picture. File a notch as showed in the picture. Done. Pepe de la Parte
  13. Thanks for your help. Anyway I have sent a request to pertronix.com and they should confirm the correct one. A couple of questions regarding your Turbo. Mine has a red coil with a resistant wire (see pictures). Does your Turbo have the same configuration? Did you replace the coil when installing the Pertronix kit? Did you modify the resistant wire? By the way, it is funny to see that the coil of my Turbo was made in Spain. I do not know if it has ever been replaced (I have not replaced it and I am the first Spanish owner of my car), but I prefer to think that the world is plenty of 02s with Spanish coils. Regards from Spain, Pepe de la Parte
  14. I am considering upgrading the distributor of my Turbo with a Pertronix ignition but I do not know what the right kit for my car is. Distributor no. is 0231180014 and the points are the one you can see in the photo. I have searched in the forum and faq section but there is no any reference to 0231180014 distributor. Do you know which Pertronix # is ok for that distributor? Has anybody upgraded a Turbo with Pertronix? Is it worth the upgrade? Thanks, Pepe de la Parte.
