  1. Would love to go for a ride together with other 02s. After this weekend my car will be hibernating till spring.
  2. The car in st catharines had an foreign license plat on the front (I think it was from France) but the rear plate was from Ontario. Always hope to meet more people with a 02.
  3. Welcome to the 02 club. Where you riding in St. catharines about 2 weeks ago? .
  4. Last Thursday i saw a champagne colour 02 driving on Ontario street in St Catharines. Like to meet the owner to chat about our cars. I live just outside St Catharines.
  5. I recently bought a brand new weber 34 ICH from Redline (kit K909) It comes with vacuum hose to connect with ignition (hose is about 1 ft to short). 3/8 gas line ( solex has 1/4 inch) Fuel pump is also 1/4inch I went for the weber because my solex was just worn out and the weber should be an easy replacement. The original air-filter housing didn't fit over the weber, had to remove the rubber and make the opening a little bigger. Then i noticed that my air-filter housing was sitting to high and was touching my hood. (the Weber is 1inch higher). I connected the wire from the cut-off solenoid to 12V feeding wire that runs to the brake light switch. I modified the air-filter housing and gain about 3/4 inch. enough to close my hood. The engine starts really good and runs idle beautiful but when i drive it is holding back. I noticed that it runs much better when i pull out my choke. I think the main jet is to small. So what is sold as an easy replacement kit for the BMW 02 Solex is not easy at all! Anyone has experience with the right jets for this carb? In the documentation provided with the Weber it says that the max fuel pressure is 3.5PSI In the BMW specs i says that the mechanical pump gives 4.27PSI at 4000rpm.
  6. I got it working. After replacing the relay i still had a problem with my left signal lights. The control light on the dash was blinking but not my blinkers outside. I took the handle apart and cleaned the contacts with steel whole.
  7. I just got mine rebuild 2 weeks ago by Trust Transmission in Kitchener. The owner John did a great job and i got it back within a week. http://www.trusttransmission.ca/ It looks like new and it shifts like new.
  8. I did the upgrade in the winter. now that i start driving again i noticed its blinks on the dashboard when i turn my signal lights on but the doesn't blink outside, If I move the signal switch halve way it seems to work. hazard lights work fine.
  9. I will pass. Dropped of my transmission to get it rebuild.
  10. It is hard to tell from a picture but it looks like there is a crack in the transmission. I want to buy the engine and transmission but the transmission is what i really need. if there are no cracks in the transmission i will drive down and make the deal.
