  1. Isn't 30 degrees of advance at the crank due to 15 degrees at the rotor? e21 rotors have a wider tip than the e2002 rotors and less resistance built into them. How do people go about blocking out centrifugal advance? I've seen one example where someone ran a screw down through the points plate, but I don't remember the details. Tom
  2. You need the proper cap and rotor for the 123. Searching the forum will bring up information about that. Using the wrong rotor can cause it to come loose and do damage. The clips that hold the cap on the 123 are malleable and easy to bend out of shape when pinching them back on. That will allow the cap to come loose and do damage.
  3. @ray_'s buddy's GT looks a little different. (photo stolen from this post) https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/201295-what-did-you-do-to-your-2002-today/?do=findComment&comment=1504266
  4. The connector must have failed on the double black wire, so someone grafted in a single yellow. I think one of those wires go to the tachometer and the other to the coil negative terminal.
  5. It looks like woven metal covering, as opposed to cloth. Could that be the EGR line that ran over to the exhaust manifold? I pulled that image from this thread. https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/254022-how-to-test-diverter-valve/?tab=comments#comment-1382654 Tom
  6. If there was a poll, I'd second Tom-too's vote to remove the cartoon badges from the corner of the avatars. Would it be hard to move them down underneath where it says Solex/Kugel/Turbo? Tom
  7. Hey, aren't the badges for Explorer and Contributor out of order? The others all progress in pairs. Newbie Earned before Sep 2021 Rookie Earned before Sep 2021 Apprentice Earned before Sep 2021 Explorer Earned before Sep 2021 Contributor Earned before Sep 2021 Enthusiast Earned before Sep 2021 Collaborator Earned before Sep 2021 Community Regular Earned before Sep 2021 Rising Star Earned before Sep 2021 Proficient Earned before Sep 2021 Experienced Earned before Sep 2021 Mentor Earned before Sep 2021 Veteran Earned before Sep 2021 Grand Master Earned before Sep 2021 Someone needs to fix this! This is a problem!! If there was a poll, I'd second Tom-too's vote to remove the cartoon badges from the corner of the avatars. Tom
  8. Such as, "the front suspension matches her shoes!" ? (slightly nervous about participating in this thread) Tom
  9. Once it is running, you can confirm the green light orientation using the BB on the flywheel and a timing light; knowing the BB is 25 degrees before top dead center. That process was discussed in this thread. Tom
  10. c.d. posted a shift linkage diagram that he marked up to show the bits that eventually wear out. I'm guessing your buzzing has to do with one/some of those. A little more pressure up on the foam disc against the tunnel might dampen vibration. Buzzing at the rubber knob itself seems unlikely. The "top hat" bushings are plastic and once they wear, there'll be metal to metal contact there. That could get noisy, as it gets sloppy. Tom
  11. There have been quite a few threads about oil intrusion in the 123. They now offer a replacement seal for the little o-ring on the shaft and also make a shaft that has a groove in it to help keep the oil down (similar to the Bosch shaft). You can either buy the parts and install them yourself, or send the distributor to them and pay a fee to have them installed. https://123ignitionusa.com/add-on-modified-shaft-for-bmw/ Tom
  12. "Forget the sound dampener and install a really loud stereO." Tom
  13. No. I don't think so. Have you tried asking @123Ignitionusa (last visited the site 14 months ago), or sending an email to the company? It is an interesting observation. Tom
  14. Which coil are you using, Larry? I think the 123 site recommends the 3 ohm Blue coil for our engines, but some people claim to use the Red coil (without an external resistor) without having any issues. I wonder if they've taken its temperature? Tom
  15. I cannot help with the photo, but maybe this diagram from RealOEM will provide some insight. 1502-2002tii 2002 Fuel tank/attaching parts Select another car > Fuel Supply > Fuel tank Sponsored links Sponsored links No. Description Supp. Qty From Up To Part Number Price Notes 03 Hose clamp B90 1 07129952590 ENDED 06 Filler cap ABSCHLIESSBAR 1 16111103603 $40.02 09 Filler cap 1 16111105835 $22.30 10 Flange 1 16111106093 $24.95 11 Gasket 1 16111106705 $4.26 12 Hose clamp 1 16111106095 ENDED 13 Sheet metal screw 4 16111111170 $0.33 ENDED 14 Filler pipe 1 16111105714 $83.94 15 Hose clamp B60 1 07129952560 ENDED Notes
