  1. Pulley timing marks

    The holes are most likely for balancing. Mine only has 2 holes in it.
  2. Pulley timing marks

    Perfect, thanks! The big problem with the factory pulley pointer is the distance from the pulley, parallax is an issue. If you move, what it references moves as well.
  3. 3d Printing interior/exterior bits?

    I think the sides are the same for all of them, but I'm sure someone can confirm that.
  4. 3d Printing interior/exterior bits?

    I could definitely use a new console face. I removed my Behr A/C plus the old face is busted up badly.
  5. Aluminum Flywheel, need opinions please

    I bought one of these: http://racehead.com.au/products-page/engine-components/bmw-light-weight-performance-flywheel-m10/ But my engine is still at the machine shop, so I can't give a review yet. It looked pretty in the box though.
  6. I have an ebay Honda aluminum radiator/fan combo. With the fan fitted, I can just squeeze it in past the water pump pulley.
  7. How well did the Evaporust work? What did you do to seal up the bare block to hold it in? How much did you use?
  8. I'll second that. I just dropped my block and head off at the machine shop, there is a ton of good information and tips in this thread that will help me get it back together. I've built motors before, but never an M10. Thanks!
  9. Do you have any pics of the bracket/pointer you have? My aftermarket flywheel doesn't have a timing mark and the stock pulley pointer is grossly inaccurate.
  10. 2.5 degrees seems like a lot. How much do you think was removed from the head?
  11. AFR: Pictures of Bung Placement Please

    What header is that? Did you get it with the bung installed or add it yourself later?
  12. Those are great looking wheels. I wonder how much camber is needed and how much fender flaring. My 15x7 BBS RS with the correct offset barely fit.
  13. 123 Ignition distributor..... WOW

    Unless you're comparing numbers from the same dyno, it's a crap shoot. Even the same dyno type at different places can read differently. Plus he's at a higher altitude with a correction applied. You really can't compare.
  14. 123 Ignition distributor..... WOW

    Since you have access to a dyno, did you do any runs comparing different cam degree adjustments?
  15. The diverter valve is to return fuel to the tank when the engine is shut off. It's supposed to solve the hot-start issues some people have.
