  1. Bump. Still looking for a driver side shallow grille. Will buy a pair if need be. Thanks!
  2. Steve, thanks for the info. You're a huge help as always. I must've switched the two in my head. I always thought the shallow grilles were for earlier cars. You learn something new every day! Anyways, correction to original post, I'm looking for a shallow grille. I'll edit the original ISO/WTB to reflect that. Thanks!
  3. Hello all, I recently purchased a 1973 driver-side grille for a 1973 BMW 2002tii. I should have checked to make sure I was ordering the right thing, but I ordered a deep grille when I needed a shallow grille. Live and learn, I suppose! Anyways, now I'm on the hunt for a shallow grille to match the passenger side. The other one is in near-perfect condition, so an NOS part or similar is preferred. Let me know what you have. She looks a little cross-eyed with the mismatched grilles! Thanks -Sam
  4. Hi all, I'm looking for a set of NOS or excellent used grille for a 1973 BMW 2002tii that we're repairing (with black slats). Ideally we just need the driver side grille, but if all I can get is a set that's fine too. Let me know what's available. Thanks!!
  5. Coils are spun all the way down and I still want it to be lower. What’s wrong with me?
  6. I love the 38/38. I have an otherwise stock 76 and I just installed my second 38/38. The first was a handmedown/loaner so I had to give it back eventually. The first carb definitely ran a little rich, but since it wasn’t mine I never fussed too much with jetting. The new one, which I tuned yesterday, has already made a massive improvement over both the 32/36 and the old 38/38. I would definitely recommend a wideband, it’ll make your life a lot easier. And while it may not be absolutely necessary to bore out your manifold... do it. I did it myself in about an hour (including removal and installing). Just use the gasket at a guide and mark it with a sharpie. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just the right size. In fact, a coworker mentioned that a slightly rougher wall may actually have some benefits. Alternatively, drop it off at a machine shop. It’s a very inexpensive modification to have done and once you get your 38/38 on and tuned you’ll never want to go back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I installed this highly sophisticated wideband setup and my buddy helped me tune it. Sits around 12.3 under load, so still some room for improvement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Redline / Worldpac sells kits jetted for the 2002. I actually don’t know what’s in there out of the box but I’ll try to find out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. After some frustration last night and some... creative problem solving (chopping the throttle shaft on a brand new Weber... ouch) my new 38DGAS is in! Car started right up no problem, fine tuning tomorrow as to not piss off the neighbors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Trying to find beauty in the process. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I used a little red loctite on the threads. I actually don’t know what that paint is called but it works similarly to loctite. I bent that tab up afterwards as well. It’ll go in tonight and I’ll tune it tomorrow. I’d love to get it all done tonight, but this car is rather loud and I don’t want to bother the neighbors tonight! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. I’m with you there on the paranoid thinking Tom, but the more I think about it the less I think it’ll be an issue long term. More than anything I just feel weird about chopping a brand new Weber, but that feels like the best (and easiest) bet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You and I had the exact same initial thought, but see my reply above to Simeon. Shockingly I don’t have enough clearance on the other side to do that without the throttle return spring bashing into the hose [emoji854] Also, there’s the issue that the threads don’t go all the way to the base so I’d have to stack washers.

  15. That’s what I thought at first, but clearance on the other end becomes an issue almost immediately... with the old carb there was enough room that the return would be just in front of the hose, if I add enough washers to clear the throttle shaft, i’m going to be up against the hose whenever i’m not on the throttle.
