  1. That is a really tight bend punched in there. At first I thought it was a sleeve pressed in.
  2. Rick, Hope the attached picture is helpful. John
  3. I have never been more grateful to another human being than the day my Army buddy agreed to take ownership of my 1972 TR-6 so I could purchase a used 1972 2002tii 2761282. His Motor Sergeant had promised that he would perform all maintenance on the Triumph (no small feat for that car) since he was embarrassed to have his Lieutenant driving around in a Fiat 850 sedan. It was a good transaction for us both. The Triumph proved to be a chick magnet for him, and the BMW took me places I would have never seen.
  4. If you download your file to your computer or laptop or tablet, and open it with the "real" free Adobe Reader app, the legend is in the Adobe bookmarks / contents window panel. Your (original BMW) wiring diagram file opens that way on my android tablet, and should work for you too. John
  5. Paul's picture is beautiful, and much nicer than my picture of my bracket, which had been weld-repaired at some point in its life. When I was wrestling with a rebuilt starter, I was having fitup problems and traced my bracket. A scan of that tracing is attached. I am also attaching a couple other pictures that I had scrounged from here on FAQ at that time.
  6. As SpaghetTii points out, there are two different brackets for supporting the cantilevered end of the starter. The 2002 and 2002A use Part #24 (12 41 1 257 807) to support the starter end off the block. The 2002tii uses Part #4 (12 41 1 254 942) which also stabilizes the tii throttle body from moving around too much. See the parts catalog page from 2002tii.org below. Thanks to Randy Anderson to pointing out the difference to me at the Vintage 2014, and saving me throttle body problems down the road. As noted, there is apparently a substitute bracket for 2002 and 2002A that is available. For a tii, you’d probably need a good used (or repaired) one.
  7. Congratulations on your fuel pump upgrade, Andy74tii! I'd been working a schedule similar to yours, and also completed replacement with the E24/E24 pump this week. It is quiet and nice, and the engine seems happy. I'll post some information here in a different thread. Following your advice, I kept the original wiring harness and just added a pigtail. I appreciate everyone's discussion of screens and filters - it was a big help. I elected to depend on the in-tank screen and the canister filter by the radiator for now. For what it's worth, when I look into the intake nozzle of the E24/E28 Bosch 0580-464-048 pump, there seems to be a built-in pump-protection screen already in the line, similar to the removable screen in the original pump. Picture is attached. Thanks again for everyone's advice.
  8. I'm in the middle of the same fuel pump replacement that Andy describes. (I had convinced myself that I couldn't start until my QuickJacks arrived.) I'm using the E24/E28 pump 16141179232, Bosch 0580-464-048 shown in Keith Kreeger's exceptional article, and my pump/canister assembly looks like Andy's above. I plan on replacing the original pump wiring harness back to its connection point in the trunk by the tank, making it easier to include an inertia switch in the wiring to turn off fuel supply in case of accident. The original pump and harness will be archived for the next owner. Thank you for the discussion about screens and filters!
  9. Off topic, but that is also a beautiful R75/6! Original spoke wheels, Krauser cases, 6-gallon tank and Euro bars. Also looks like an R90S front fender and 1976 turn signals. Thanks for preserving that history, too! Mine is 4946226. Congratulations on your tii!
  10. Walloth & Nesch has always been good for me, discounts and all. You have to figure the shipping costs to see if they are the right option, but they've always been responsive.
  11. You are very welcome. As I noted in the post, I got a lot of tips from others on the forum who had addressed the matter before me. I work by trial-and-error, but mostly error.
  12. Jason, thanks for your interest in Norway Camping in Chamonix 2761282! Camping in the 2002 was great. I’ve always been amazed at the cargo capacity of these little cars. With the roof rack, we had more than enough room for two weeks’ camping gear, spare food and several Jerry cans of extra gasoline (and paper maps). Two guys camping for two weeks, or four guys skiing in the Alps for a week – never a problem. Please no comments about hygiene. My friend took himself, his wife, two in-laws and a two-year-old to Italy for a week in their 2002. We just had different space expectations. The other notes on the forum about sleeping in the back seat kind of scare me. In my experience, both front seats sleep fine, but I wouldn’t want to try the back. In this picture, all the flaps were open for unpacking and normal evening fluid checks (which is not to say this car never stranded me). As I recall, this was our first night in-country and we were washing off a long road trip. I was 24 years old and more interested in how the car handled and how to hook up as many driving lights as the Europeans than I was in the different kinds of door mirrors. So I don’t really know the answer to your mirror question. Looking at the other pictures in the Registry, they look trapezoidal to me, but I am still no mirror guru. We stopped to see my camping buddy’s relatives in Norway, and he did not want to shame the American side of the family. So he brought a couple of changes of “normal” street attire. I asked him to hang them behind my seat for better visibility. It was strawberry season in Norway, and every few miles there was a farmer's kid with a roadside stand peddling paper cones of the berries. The stems tossed from our vent windows stained the Chamonix to a pink shade from the doors to the back of the car for much of the trip. Great memories and great friendships. We still get together every few years. John
  13. Summer 1973 camping in Norway. (The natives could spot Americans by the way they dressed.) 1972 2002tii 2761282, whose story is in the Registry. Last seen February 1976 at Platte Avenue Datsun in Colorado Springs. Miss her often.
  14. +3 9th grade Latin. That was a long weekend.
  15. I also spoke with Brian about two years ago when I was installing my square taillight LED arrays, and he was very helpful. He is running a small specialty business, and even then was very sensitive to the costs of the materials he uses. Count 'em, there are a boatload of LEDs in the square taillight arrays. I asked why the backup lights are still bulbs, and he explained that with a lot more LEDs, the costs for a set could be prohibitive for many owners. I'd guess that the current world situation isn't making the trade in LEDs any simpler. In any case, their LED arrays are a huge visibility and safety improvement for our cars, and you don't have to worry whether your reflectors are shiny enough.
