  2. That sounds like a compression stroke. Are you sure all the spark plugs are tight? It really sounds like compression from the engine leaking.
  3. Bought a 76 2002 ,runs, good int, has rust

    Lets see some pictures. Anything can be fixed, just a question of time and money
  4. Yeah in theory the mounting bolts will still make contact with the engine bracket providing a ground path. However definitely worth putting back the grounding wire.
  5. No start-new build

    Try rotating the distributor a few degrees either way and see if you get closer to firing. Once it's fired you can set proper timing with a timing light
  6. Door Card Covers - Anyone Seen These Before?

    Doesn't seem like a good deal since you have to provide your own door card. Any upholstery shop could wrap a door card with a similar pattern for probably press money.
  7. No start-new build

    No spark is not a timing issue. If it was a timing issue you would have spark but the car wouldn't fire. Electrical issue. All grounds attached?
  8. I agree. Made a bigger difference than I expected changing from my kyb to Bilsteins
  9. Since I'm in Texas: Air Condition. Makes the car so much more enjoyable and usable year round.
  10. Question about front windshield glass

    Last time I checked my local depart could get me a green windshield for around $300
  11. Infamous blinker issue

    There is a special relay that makes the blinking motion. Time to replace that. There is an article in retrofitting a modern blinker relay in a 2002.
  12. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Jake what an amazing amount of work you are doing to stich those cars together. Takes real skill. ( But the lathe/ Mill in the background make me think this isn't a problem for you)
  13. Removing intake manifold m10 engine

    Zinz is right. We do need pictures of the leak to determine if its on the back of the motor from the distributor or on the side of the motor from the valve cover.
  14. Removing intake manifold m10 engine

    Here is the gasket and the special sealing washer you will need. https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/1976/bmw/2002/engine_electrical/distributor_housing_gasket.html Be damn careful not to overtighten the bolts when you reassemble. I striped one of the bolts and it cause me a leak there for years...
  15. Ignition Options - Rough Idle

    Find the ball bearing at 1400 rpms! Rev the motor to 1400 rpms and then use the timing light with 0 advance to find the ball bearing at 1400 rpms.
