  1. I didn't find it. Jack did. In a "pole barn" in a far northwestern suburb of Chicago. It had been neglected, but was complete. Then Jack decided to relocate to another state. That's when I bought it. In the dead of winter, after a blizzard that a left 16" of fresh snow on the ground, I dug it out of the snow bank behind his house just before he made the move and straight into storage it went. Months later when the snow was gone and the temperature was above fifty degrees, ,,,,,,,,low and behold, the documents in the drivers seat pocket revealed that I had just secured Bobby Rahal's 1972 Inka/black 2002Tii. .............slowly, very slowly it's being reassembled. Mac.
  2. I don't think this is Tii money for a really nice roundie Tii. I think you'll have to multiply by a factor of 1.5 to enter Tii territory. Mac.
  3. Darn nice looking'02. Just sold for $30K. Buyer stole it. Mac.
  4. NM/NA. might be worth it. PPI called for. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/bmw/2002/2349093.html Mac.
  5. Two shops "right around the corner" from you. Ken Blasco and Jack Fahuna. (use the SEARCH feature.) Merry Christmas. Mac.
  6. Now all ya have to do is hope your cylinder bores aren't so far gone/used that you can still use original, standard bore pistons. Good Luck. Mac.
  7. are you insinuating Fahuna's shop doesn't know what they are doing? He's been around M10 engines for decades. He DOES NOT SUFFER FOOLS well. Mac.
  8. #halboyles & #Inkatouring.........Nice to see other 'CCA "seniors" are still around besides myself and Mike Self. Mac. 'cca 1xxx
  9. MAHLE says: Both sets are Second oversize, BMW M10, 2.0 Ltr., 1975-'77, 320i/520i & USA 320. 082-09-02 has a C/R of 8.1:1. designed for 320 1975-77 ROW and '76-79 USA. 082-10-02 has a C/R of 9.3:1 designed for 320i/520i ROW 1975-1977. Mac.
  10. What are the part numbers on the boxes? That would help. Mac.
  11. Search for rust evaluation, take/post important pics, correct/honest description, location, asking price, list in Classified ad section "cars for sale". DONE. Mac.
  12. I wonder if the seller knows about all this info on the FAQ. Mac.
  13. Interesting,...... The Chicago 02 Group just had a Tour and Demonstration(Friday) of Machine Shop services by MILO of Foreign Car Repair in Palatine, IL. He does a lot of work for The Werk Shop. He demonstrated freshly cut valve seats. Mac.
  14. MAHLE tells me: ORIGINALLY(back in the day) they made third oversize @89.97mm. Later on, for one reason or another, They changed third oversize to 90.015mm. They never made a fourth oversize. That's their story and they are stickin' to it. Mac. PS. You are correct re: 10:1, E12 pistons. MAHLE never made 'em.
  15. Second oversize, MAHLE, 9.5:1 c/r, for BMW E12 head. (some folks refer to them as "grand piano" stye.) Mac.
