  1. You and your nice ride are keeping sweet company with a red early/mid '50's Ford PU down the way.
  2. Cold start harness for a tii. My first attempt at fabricating a harness. Quite fun and educational. Seems to work well. Larry
  3. Photos below might be helpful: different lighting views of two-stage PPG automotive paint matched to BMW Inka code 022. Away now. When I return home in a few days I can send you the PPG codes from the original cans. Larry [email protected]
  4. Paul, I like yours much better. More like the original, and better fabrication. Mine was the first attempt. Will keep trying. Larry
  5. I have one I can send you. No guarantee it is perfect; however, I would have used it if I had not chickened out cutting through my $$$$ chromed bumper. Can you wait a week or two? Address? Larry
  6. Roman, You have an '02 with only one dangler? You sure it's an '02? Larry
  7. Healey, Thanks. My thoughts, too, all along. Yep, perhaps a shaft issue. What shaft component is not doing its job? Any ideas to prevent, repair, address this issue?
  8. Thanks, Buckeye. Must go check rotation...CW, I think. Thanks, Paul. I don't see leakage around the collar or any site associated with the housing or its new gasket. The oil appears to be coming from within the distributor body, out through one of the holes in the floor of the body (see 1st photo in the initial post above), accumulating, and then dripping from the angled lower outer edge of the body which points down to the exhaust downpipe. I did not notice any cracks or irregularities in the housing during the cleaning of the inside and outside of the housing and replacement of the housing gasket and washer-gasket. My gut is telling me to get a new distributor. Suggestions re: same? Photos: housing pre-cleaning Larry
  9. You're sharp! Good suggestion. Thanks. #1 (owned for 34 years) is long gone. #2 is a '74 tii parked beside #3. Should the tii dist work in #3 ('75 block / '83 head)?
  10. Paul, A new washer-gasket and a new housing gasket were installed at the same time as the O-ring attempts. Housing, its tunnels, and surfaces were cleaned and tidy-ed up before re-assembly. Think it's new distributor time? Larry
  11. Thanks, Tom. Good points. Will investigate same. Should have continued the previous thread. Thanks for the reminder. Larry
  12. '76, Yep, that one. Numerous posts state either get it to fit/stop leaking somehow or get a Bosch, a 123, etc. Larry
  13. First attempt. Learner set. Kinda crude. Yes, have to bend the tab so they lay smoothly against the VC. Will go on the black '02(ti). Second attempt. Next set will be more refined, narrower, shorter tab. Will go on the Inka tii.
  14. '75 block / '83 head I replaced the distributor shaft O-ring for the second time and it still leaks oil from the bottom of the body/casing. Oil drips onto the exhaust downpipe. I do not know the history of the distributor; however, I think it is an IE version. IE rep told me they do not have separate replacement O-rings for the distributor. I tried the standard fat wide O-ring for a Bosch. In no way would the distributor fit into the housing with that O-ring around its waist. So, I found a couple that seemed to fit snugly around the shaft and into the housing. Still leaks. Distributor works OK. Shaft is tight, no play, spins smoothly. Is there an O-ring somewhere inside the distributor? What am I missing? Time to get a 123? Larry
