  1. Congratulations! You've come to the right place. There are a few of us here in Columbus, Ohio
  2. Reference is to valve guide and valve stem seal. this is good one to read
  3. @Hans I think sealed bearing is not correct for this application regardless if that sealed bearing has equivalent to BMW part number. Here is example: cylinder head stud bolts for exhaust manifold. same part number 07119908317. type part number and you get proper one, which is and another site recommendation is this one and guess what, there is good chance that won't have enough threads to fasten nut. Ask me how do I know this... @jimk Because original ones were not sealed ones and replacements are not sealed (last time checked) either if genuine BMW parts ordered. See example of stud bolts above. and amount of grease is per shop manual service book
  4. My original bearings had C3 making beside bearing number. I opted to go with Koyo, but made sure Koyo bearing comes with expansion suffix of C3 My original bearing were not sealed type and these are not either. Should not use sealed bearing, because one should add 35 grams of bearing grease to spacer tube. Have you seen this article written by me a few years ago.
  5. Is either valve cover installed backward or valve put on backward. Is worth taking the cover off first if you can remove 2 screws while valve body attached to 2 hose.
  6. Steve, you hit the nail on the head. 2362326 - was manufactured in December 1974 BTW, install that fuel filter before fuel pump. Fuel filter on top of alternator not so good.
  7. If the car truly 1975 and presumably it is because of EGR shown then here is your diagram. As others said, not enough information such as timing, ignition coil, distributor, etc.
  8. You can trust bearings made in USA, EU and JAPAN of good quality. When you cross reference a bearing model number maybe a bit different among manufactures, but dimensionally will be the same. Other important factor that should pay close attention is bearing expansion suffix. Internal clearance being C3 means that the bearing has room for expansion if needed between the races of the bearing, whilst holding the outer ring and moving the inner ring in a radial movement you will detect a little amount of play between the two rings. All standard clearance bearings have this movement, it may only be a small amount of movement but is controlled by international standards. C3 means the bearing has more clearance than standard.
  9. Had a pm from him on October 26 saying he has what I was looking for. I thought was scam due to 2 factors; 1). he just joined the forum (0 post), 2). Already had topic marked as "sold"
  10. 1). use adjustable ones. see description. 2). use side cutters or NAPA sell crimping pliers for ~ $20. 3). black or gray RTV by Permatex https://www.belmetric.com/universal-time-pirate-clamps-c-15_842/cvtimepirateset-p-4322.html
  11. Assembled in reverse direction. Fasten two halves first, rotate shaft a few times to ensure there is no binding and then tighten the nut on the pulley.
  12. Conflicting data per Slavs post on another topic. Just saying.
  13. Excellent job!. Could you us where did you boards and batting material.
