  1. I'll add my personal experience. In 2009, from Mesa, I got a rebuilt tii fuel pump. I installed it ...... and it would not run. I un-installed it and returned it to Mesa. They hooked up their battery to it: it would not run. I got a refund. I then did the Keith Kreeger upgrade to a 5-series fuel pump and have been 100% happy I did. http://www.my2002tii.com/tii-fuel-pump_how-to.htm Cheers, Carl
  2. Great Job !!!! but, but, but ...... it's not original !! Part of the fun is fighting a new hose through that hole ...... and then dreading when you will have to do it again. Cheers, Carl
  3. Simply to be specific: Mesa Performance did not do an actual rebuild, they simply sold a rebuilt pump which they got from Fuel Injection Corp. But I cannot remember if you had to give them a rebuildable core. Cheers, Carl
  4. here's some reading on-topic ..... https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/168967-popping-exhaust/?tab=comments#comment-1054796 Cheers, Carl
  5. Wow, first time I've ever heard of points being a problem. Those easy fixes are the best fixes. As for "hunting" idle, my '74tii does that just because it can, perfectly normal for my car. I have tweaked the little screw inside the tuna can and it smooths out. 1,000 miles later, it goes uneven so I turn the little screw in the other direction and it smooths out. Every time I do a tune-up, the little screw needs an adjustment, maybe 1/8th turn is all it ever needs. But that is the only way to smooth the idle for my car. Cheers, Carl
  6. Yes, there is a washer on each side of the banjo bolt. I don't know if they are "crush" washers per se, but they are there. +1 Einspritz: copper washers will work fine. Cheers, Carl
  7. I'm thinking this one: https://www.europeancollectibles.com/vehicles/315/1973-bmw-2002-turbo "they" call it a '73, but it's a squaretail ..... Cheers, Carl
  8. +1 chargin. Mine was less than 3 weeks from Fairchild. Cheers, Carl
  9. hmmmm, I was thinking that that round building did not look exactly like Hotel Palisade ..... Cheers, Carl
  10. off-topic is the best !!!! and back on topic: if it ain't original, you're wasting your time ..... and rstclark would never lie !!!! Cheers, Carl
  11. rstclark wrote, "My first BMW was this same car A 1974 Tii " Same with me !! My first BMW was a 1974 Tii ...... and I'm still driving mine, it is likewise a forever car. And there's another 2002 original owner up yonder in your area: yeewiz on this forum. So just drive it, drive it, and drive it some more !! All the cosmetics will work themselves out. Cheers, Carl
  12. SO ...... BMW will be doing something like this for which lucky 2002 owner ??? https://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/a25471346/vw-beetle-factory-restoration Cheers, Carl p.s. I'm only at 255,000 or so .......
  13. Terveisiä !! here's a huge listing of ZDDP ppm's ...... sadly, Gulf Racing is not among those listed ....... http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?136304-What-oil-brands-offer-the-best-protection-***Good-read*** Cheers, Carl

  15. I unbolt the alternator from it's bracket and hang onto it. Then using a Big Crowbar I lever & shove the engine toward the passenger side. This opens up enough space for the alternator to drop down and out. Some reading on topic ...... Cheers, Carl
