  1. Do you normally tap the pedal once before trying to start the car. This resets the choke so it should be in the closed position.
  2. I don't have an M20 head on hand to do a mockup, but I don't see any reason why a linkage system couldn't be created for that block/head using many of the same components. The M30 version uses a down rod (see pic) to connect to the bell crank on the side of the block. So it might just mean creating a cable system to perform that function on the M20.
  3. Belmetric has them in zinc plated steel: https://www.belmetric.com/jis-small-wrench-c-3_58_2280/nj8x11lylw-jis-nut-long-yellow-zinc-p-6288.html?zenid=vnett8tm3qso12vb55jdg8kk22 CIP1 has the brass version: https://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=C13-43-6051 For really tight spots where the long nuts won't fit, I cut some of the length off to make it work.
  4. And yet, as you mentioned, folks use standard 13mm nuts all the time. They must be very patient and persistent to get them on the lower studs with an open end wrench! We use brass nuts that are just 11mm to make the installation even easier. Here's a pic of our new M30 linkage using the 11mm nuts.
  5. The notable location for M8 bolts using 12mm heads is for the intake manifold. I believe BMW used that configuration of fastener on all early M10 intakes.
  6. Wow, our first volunteer in only minutes! Please drop by with your phone and expertise. We would love to have you there.
  7. Please join us on Wednesday June 16 from 7 to 9 PM for the first ever Tech Session of the 2002 Forever Chapter, Midwest Region! All BMW owners welcome!
  8. Those are still available new: https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-pin-33323628167
  9. I could use the carbs, manifolds, linkage and air box.
  10. Or, you can do what BMW did to gain extra clearance for side drafts and FI: use a brake booster with a smaller diameter. And, as luck would have it, we now have remanufactured ATE T51 brake boosters used on the 2002ti, tii and turbo! PM me for details.
  11. I've got the plate, gasket and bolts. Please PM for details
  12. The problem with most of the aftermarket linkage parts is that they are only parts of the whole equation and are not made specifically for the 2002. Ours are designed only for the 2002 and are complete from the accelerator pedal lever at the pedal box to the carbs' throttle shafts. Here are some pics of the version we use for DCOEs if you don't need the cold start mechanism. It more closely resembles the 2002ti geometry.
