  1. Pulley timing marks

    @John76 Those holes are only for balancing the pulley. On later model cars and some with fuel injection crankshaft pulley has only one (TDC) notch. That notch aligned to the pointer can be used for installing ignition distributor. For other adjustments should use marking on flywheel. You can look this up on page 69, item #10 if you have access to Haynes manual.
  2. Pulley timing marks

    You did not mention if cylinder head has already mounted to block or not. If not, then it is very easy to find out what is going on as shown in pictures by John 76 Otherwise I will trust the marking of inner pulley groove marking just because of this document compared to your picture.
  3. Did you buy the discs separately? Can you share part number and where you purchased discs (covers)
  4. Wheel Fitment Question

    Alternate paint choice if you quest for originality https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1RUCY_enUS743US743&q=wurth+german+wheel+restoration+kit&oq=wurth+sliver+paint+for+rims&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.0i71k1l4.0.0.0.9798.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0....0...1..64.psy-ab..0.0.0....0.neMXO-hbBb0
  5. Spark Plug Wires Clips/Holders

    05 Clamp 116106430191 $2.48 http://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-1602-2002-tii-clamp-for-ignition-wire/ https://www.amazon.com/Spark-Plug-Ignition-Separators-Holders/dp/B006GX08CU
  6. windshield

    I used L=3575mm for windshield and rear window. Just wanted to be safe. No return, etc. are you replacing rubber as well? If so, I removed old locking strip then used sharp razor blade and cut through the rubber where locking strip sits.
  7. Alternate alternator choice

    IMO there is no better alternator than OEM. I rebuilt mine with new bearings and slip ring and I know will last me. You hear people have gone with what so called re-man which lasted a year or two. That's just my 2 cents.
  8. I don't know how necessary they are (caps). Now, on little closed foam ones (yellow color in the picture) Service Book instruction is to soak them in engine oil before installation.
  9. okay, more specific per BMW lingo: Tie Rod - Center 32219057204 It looks to me like protective cap for tie rod-center foam https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-bmw-parts/tie-rod-center/32219057204/
  10. Intake manifold block-off plate

    we can fix that with less than $10 http://www.ebay.com/itm/1pcs-S-22mm-x-1-5-Metric-Taper-Tap-M22x1-5-mm-superior-quality-M22-Fine-tooth-/292005683850?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 and will need 13/16" drill bit
  11. Intake manifold block-off plate

    Third, fourth, etc. option: #14 _ Gasket ring _ 07119963355 _ A22X27-AL #15 _ Screw plug _ 07119919252 _ M22X1,5 _ think is NLA but, https://www.belmetric.com/22mm-metric-drain-plugs-c-11_90_986/
  12. Keep fuel filter close to fire wall. Less heat. Another option would be to buy this one. Reasonably priced and reputable seller.
  13. Key to new version of mechanical pump is to ask for long neck version. VW guys probably wouldn't know it. So, return the fuel pump and call Blunt tech (Steve) and he will get squared away.
