    Sweeet baby Jesus...
  2. BmW Race Head Porting

    Second vid at 1:04- what are the dark spots in the intake and exhaust ports... Cant tell if they were threaded or water jackets...
  3. Between caring for my 17m.o. and feeling like I'm on my deathbed (sinus infections/flu/broncitus) this is all I've managed to scan. It's a BMW journal reprint. Doesn't have much to do with '02s, but still neat anyway. BMW journal reprint.pdf
  4. My Dad and I used to “edit” the car in their ads in the Roundel. We’d add different paint schemes, wheels, flares, etc. good times...
  5. Alpina Deko kit brochure: I think I’m gonna order a hill climb Cam, and a few sets of pistons... some Alpina seats and wheels, and maybe some bilstein struts/shocks as well. Prices look pretty reasonable. 😄
  6. My Dad and a Buddy of his were interested in buying the business at some point in the 80’s. I remember Dad commenting that they didn’t because the books didn’t seem to jive. It would have been neat growing up around a business like that I think (if it was viable).
  7. My Dad was a BMW tech for years. He had also been accused of being a pack-rat... no complaints here. This isnt everything I found in the box with the workshop manuals, but it’s a few of the more interesting pieces in my mind. ill post more later after I have a chance to go through it all.
  8. Holley Carb - will it work?

    I’ve just recently got the SD240 in my ‘55 IH 3/4t running with GM TBI. I’m in middle of tuning it now. While that’s true tuning isn’t for everyone. Let’s not forget that the ECM can adapt to the tune of about 10% in either direction. I’m not saying that I want to be “the guy”, but with datalogging by the end user a fella could crank out some basic chips. As long as everyone isn’t out to tune to “the ragged edge” I would think it shouldn’t be too labor intensive. For the ones that do want every last hp they can get the hardware/software to tune a 7747 ECM for about $200. Just my 2c.
  9. Holley Carb - will it work?

    GM TBI can be made to work on any gasoline burning air pump your heart desires. I just put it on my 55 IH straight 6. Just gotta adjust to parameters to fit your pumps characteristics.
  10. Exhaust upgrade!!

    Ouch!
  11. Need help to ID this side draft

    “For when I get bored”... good lord man! What do you get bored with that this is “just for funsies”?
