  1. Any information on faceplates? I bought a 71 frankfurt to match my 71 2002 and it came with two separate faceplates. One that is fully chrome, and another "pinstripe" faceplate that is supposedly very rare. I don't know anything about it.
  2. Hey Everyone, I have a set of rebuilt dual Solex C40 ADDHE carbs on a Warneford manifold. With the rebuilt set comes 4 parts carbs and all of the parts shown in the pictures. I got these for a really good deal from a fellow enthusiast, and was planning on putting them on my car, but think it's a little too much firepower for a stock M10. Instead, I am looking to trade everything here for a single dcoe setup with linkage, water bypass etc on a lynx manifold. I know this is a killer deal for someone, but I would rather pass on the savings I got on this setup than turn a profit on a fellow enthusiast. I'm sure someone out there is looking to switch from single to dual sidedrafts. There are some linkage parts in the box, although I am guessing some would still need to be bought. Please take this into account. Thanks, Chris
  3. For sale is a 1967 Blaupunkt Frankfurt that came with my car. It was never hooked up, so I would assume that it does not work. I was using it to fill the hole in my center console until I found the correct 1971 radio for my car. The condition is not perfect, but it presents very well and has decent patina representing its age. Again, this is not tested so I would assume it does not work, but would make a great restoration piece for an early BMW. Price is $200 plus shipping.
  4. How often do you go to the Seattle area? I live in Kirkland and work in Redmond.
  5. Hey all, I am looking for a spare early solex (36-40 pdsi) for my 1971 2002. I am hoping someone here has one that is in good usable shape that I can run while I rebuild the original. Please let me know. You can also email me at [email protected] Thanks, Chris
  6. Thanks Steve, I just moved so the car is getting shipped right now. I'll pull it out and report back on the number when the car arrives. Cheers, Chris
  7. I have one that I believe is from 1967 in my 1971. It looks like this although the face plate is a bit different and the outer knobs are chrome. Anybody have any info on it? I wish I had the original to my car but the previous owner removed it before I towed the car off his property. This one was given to me by a friend, although it doesn't work. Still looks good.
  8. Thank you for the info. I don't think my carb is warped or there is a hole in the lid. The throttle shaft is likely worn however as my car has over 100,000 miles on it. I haven't seen a rebuild kit with a new throttle shaft however, and I haven't seen any good factory original replacements online. Any suggestions? the symptoms of my car is that I cannot set the mixture accurately to get it to idle properly. After the car warms up, it runs and idles worse. It also stumbles when I get back on the throttle after coasting or cruising. I am guessing this is due to a clogged jet. Like I mentioned, I want to keep the car factory original so I will need a complete rebuild kit, or a carb that is in good working order while I work on mine.
  9. Hello All, I have the original Solex 40 PDSI carb on my 71 2002 (all original) and the carb is sputtering to the point where it definitely needs a rebuild (rough idle, stumble when rolling onto the pedal after coasting). I was wondering if there is anything I can do to the carb while I rebuild to give the car a little more oomph. I am well aware that I can achieve this with a weber setup, but the car is all original and I want to keep it that way. I have heard you can switch jets out on these solexes, although I feel like the main limitation of this carb is the lack of airflow due to the single barrel. Thanks in advance, Chris
