  1. Yesterday I picked up the engine, cylinder head, flywheel and some other engine parts from out local machinist. He pressure tested the cylinder head, resurfaced it together with the chain cover and gave it a clean.The engine got first measured up, which told us that one piston had worn down the cylinder over the first oversize.He bored the engine to the 2nd oversize after I found some new Mahle pistons, gave it a hone + new freeze plugs and wash. The engine didn't have to be resurfaced as it was still good. The flywheel also got ground down so we have a nice flat surface for the new clutch disc. I still need to get new bearings for the crankshaft and connecting rods before I can start putting it back together. I'll go with Kolbenschmidt bearings as I can't seem to find the Glyco's. For now I put some more oil on the freshly cleaned and machined surfaces so they won't rust.
  2. Ah, ok. I get it now, thanks for clearing that up!
  3. You could be right. I havent checked that one out yet! I'll have a look today Now that you say this, I remember him making a thread about these, but isn't he using a E12/E21 LSD diff? So these are the cv for the early 02s if I understand correctly?
  4. Hey guys, I'm selling a few spare parts here locally, when going through these parts I noticed a different type of cv joint than the ones on my 02. My car came with the regular flat ones, not these stepped cv joints. I got these from a family member and if I recall correctly he had a 1802? Could someone give me some info about when each joint was used?
  5. Got my pedal box back together, fun little project. After making sure I had all of the new bushes, bolts, and parts, I took it all home and got started with assembling. Still need to torque everything down and bolt the master cylinder against the box as I forgot to take those bolts with me. Close up of the pedal box

    Got my brakes back together! Very happy with the outcome
  7. Got my front calipers back together yesterday night. I first sandblasted the inside of the old pistons and spray painted them with heat resistant paint. Afterwards I let the paint cure in the oven. Same thing with the calipers halves since I clear coated these after the cad plating. New parts laid out, rebuild kit is from Walloth Nesch And back together! Very happy with the outcome, definitely a good choose to get these cad plated as well
  8. I'm pretty sure you can see/feel the sharp edge when they stamped/cut the plate. I would put that side against the B post. Again, probably won't matter. I do have a spare set of these plates/strickers but I'm from Belgium so probably not the cheapest way..
  9. Delivered the new pistons to my local machinist. He'll probably bore the engine this week as the already has a few others lines up to bore also. He also pressure tested the cylinder head told me the head is crack free! Finally some good news about the engine
  10. Mine are number 2, Looks like there isn't really a reference for which horn they used when/on what cars..
  11. Oh oke, I get it. Does you horns looks like.. uhm.. horns? Or are they also round a round shape. I'll try to make some pictures of them later today if I don't forget.
  12. Hmm, I don't seem to have those marked brackets. Are your horns also Bosch? Or Hella? Both my horns had 3 rectangular sheet metal plates (painted in black) bolted to them. I don't have a picture of them, they are currently sitting in primer awaiting to get painted with some black 2k epoxy

    Hahaha yeah now that you say, it kinda does look like hamberger wrapping Yes, super happy that I was able to score these!
  14. If I'm not mistaken the bolts that hold the caliper halves together are of the 'RIBE' type.

    Got the new pistons for my engine. The lower compression 2nd oversize pistons aren't available anymore from BMW/Mahle. I stubbled by coincidence on a still sealed set of Mahle pistons partno 0820402. By searching the number on google it confirmed these were the lower compression pistons + it crossed referenced with the BMW part no. The box also had a little paper inside with a number/code of who packaged the pistons
