    Unusual front signal light setup

    My car was manufactured in 1969 and registered as a 1970, it's 49 years old, I have had it for the last 5 years. Odds are the old bulge lights I had were replaced at some point. The light fixture in question is separate from the amber lens so could well have been hybridized sometime in the last half century. There were a lot of "modifications" prior to purchase.

  2. Thanks for the photos, it was much easier than I thought with the manual choke model.  In the end I just used the aerosol carb cleaners as the dips are very hard to find in none commercial quantities.

    Heater Hoses

    One additional comment: Because the heater core is higher than the engine, you may lose the "prime" on the system when you remove the connecting hoses and you might have problems getting the coolant to flow back up and through the heater core due to air-locking. I had this problem when I installed a new heater core. What I did was loosen the exiting hose's lower clamp on the driver's side at the back of the engine, and with the engine running, "bled" the heater core until I had a good volume of fluid coming through and then tightened up the clamp. You will need a catch pan and it would help to have someone else to start and shut the engine down during this process. I did it solo and it went OK but I lost a lot of fluid.

    Unusual front signal light setup

    Thanks Mike, that makes sense and to confirm, the stencil on it says BMW 68/69. I will be hanging on to it! Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Unusual front signal light setup

    The car has always been north of 48 in Canada. The light is probably a replacement and could have come from Texas though. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  7. I have a 1970 02 and replaced my North American front signals with euros and found this unusual (to me anyway) setup on the drivers side. The main bulb is a single filament and the small one I assume is for the driving lights. Completely different than the passenger side. Was this perhaps a replacement from a newer model?

    6 fuse box & gasket

    I used a piece of rubber from an old inner tube to cut my own replacement gasket. If you search "parts for sale" I have seen recent offers for the older 6 fuse panels for sale they will probably come with the gasket. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    BavAuto has Closed!

    That's too bad, I shopped a lot with them on line and they were great on the phone. Hope the employees are all able to move on without too much hardship. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Speedometer needle source?

    If you just need the speedo needle, I will pull one off my non-working silver dollar gauge for you. It is white, see photo. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Carbeurator Rebuild

    Yes I would appreciate seeing your photos. I have been searching for the "dip" products but they appear to be hard to source locally. Most are advising just to use the aerosol carb cleaners. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
