  2. The crank pulley will have a series of indented stapings for TDC, and at least 2 others. I think I remember seeing these as German abbreviations. Once you find them highlight them with white paint to see them in your timing light. This is a 2 person job, one on the light and one turning the distributor housing to get it lined up properly. Also need to have the car idling at about 2,000 rpm. The Haynes manual has a good step by step process laid out for you. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  3. The green fasteners should twist in but if they are tight, try a little sandpaper rolled in a tube to enlarge just enough to trust them I. For punching through vinyl I used a fine exacto knife made a small cross. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  4. So from the heater box side to the right side panel including the bent tab that attaches to the left hand side, the length is 13.25"? And the depth, from the midpoint of the curve, varies from 3" on the right hand side to 2.25" on the left? Thanks, Guy Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

  6. Can someone measure the dimensions of the rectangular panel behind the glove box. I need the length from heater to the right side piece (ignore the mounting tabs), and the depth from the firewall to the glove box. Thanks, Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  7. Wow! That is a beautiful job, especially under the hood. I would like to see what you did to the interior too. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

  10. Did it just stop working or is this a new car for you? The heater box has contacts for the 3 speed fan connection inside the box. You are saying you bypassed these by energizing the fan with a direct 12 volt source through the engine bay? I would pull the heater box and (yeah I know it's a p.i.t.a) and bench test the 3 speed fan connections. If the fan is dead, it has to be replaced/repaired anyway and this is a good opportunity to flush and test the heater core at the same time. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  11. Yup you want it stiff and use lots of lube! Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  12. That sounds like a sticky accelerator linkage. Solved mine by lubricating the pedal linkage and making sure the return spring was installed properly. Try lubing everything from the pedal to the throttle control on your fuel injection body. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  13. How much does it increase? If idle is normally 800 rpm, how much does it increase and for how long? Does it race when you shift gears? If you tap the pedal does it fall back to 800 rpm? If so I am thinking it may be a sticky accelerator linkage. I had this problem with an early 320i. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  14. If not the belt, other suspects are the alternator and water-pump. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
  15. Mike, once the pushrod is sorted out, won't the new pump require priming to get it to lift fuel from the tank? Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
