  1. I refreshed my tii race engine. After putting in back in the car it was hard to start. It would fire. Then run rough for a second. Then go to a very high idle speed. After checking and thinking it seemed like a big vacuum leak. So I pulled off the intake manifold. I found two gaskets on two of four intake ports. Therefore no tight seal at the other two. Put it back together and now it runs right. I hate to admit a dumb mistake. But maybe it will remind someone else to be more careful than I was.
  2. I know there’s lots to like in CA. But NJ isn’t just refineries and highways https://www.nj.com/entertainment/2020/02/the-50-best-reasons-to-live-in-nj.html
  3. Thanks for all the comments. Many would say, stay out of CA altogether. But it can't be worse than NJ! I live now in a very nice area of NJ. But if I go less than 3 miles away I will see all the drugs and crime you can imagine. My kids lived in Venice until recently. Highly desirable area, right? Multi-million dollar houses every where you look. But streets full of homeless. So where do you go that everything is perfect? We have visited Tehachapi, spoken to people who know it well, and have done lots of research. We are looking in the very nice areas. As for the weather, we are used to hot in the summer and cold in the winter, plus plenty of rain and cloudy dreary days. Hope to meet some old BMW lovers when we arrive!
  4. After 60 years in NJ I will be following a lot of parts I have sold and moving to CA later this year bringing my 2002s and E30 m3 of course my wife and I have chosen Tehachapi to be close enough to family in LA and strategically located between Willow Springs and Buttonwillow race tracks anyone here in Tehachapi or know much about it? Paul
  5. You have gone this far. Removing the head will take less than an hour. So why not? Seems like it would be silly at this point not to also replace piston rings, main bearings, rod bearings, and all seals and gaskets.
  6. Jan 18, LA. Anyone here own these? Photos by my stepson.
  7. Interesting theory on preserving the block for future overbores. I can see the point. But on the other hand by the time this block needs another rebuild we will all be dead and it will probably be illegal to even own an internal combustion engine. Anyway that is what I told Vince over a beer on Saturday. I am the guy who Vince Generously but erroneously called the “guru” who is helping with this project I am no guru but I have been racing and rebuilding these engines for 30 years Lots of mistakes were made and I am still learning from the advice here Paul
  8. you can see in the photo the block on the left has the main bearing caps. I'd need to go look to be 100% sure, but I am 99.9% sure they are present on all. There's no reason I would discard them, and I would have put them back in place for safekeeping after I removed the crankshaft.
  9. UPDATE and Price reduction I am losing some of my storage space at end of December. I'd rather sell this stuff cheaply than find somewhere else to store it, or send it to the scrap yard. I will sell separate packages, again for pickup only. Photo 1 - suspension, driveshafts, subframes, differentials, etc: $300 for all Photo 2 - engine blocks: $50 each, $200 for all 5 photo 3 - flywheels and pressure plates - $200 for all photo 4 - starters and alternators - $200 for all $600 for EVERYTHING
  10. Large collection of big and heavy parts. Everything in the photos. Engine blocks, suspension, driveshafts, starters, alternators, differentials, flywheels, pressure plates, etc. Pick up in Garwood NJ. I am losing some of my storage space at end of December.

  11. Be very careful about rounding off the internal hex on the screws, aka the Allen head. Clean them out first and make sure you have a good tight fit with the wrench or key fully seated. Otherwise you will be trying to turn them with vice grips or cutting the heads off.
  12. Nice group of cars and people! an even dozen 2002’s round taillights, square taillights, carbs, tii’s, an S14, and a 6 cylinder. Plus a targa.
