    1968 only colors?

    Steve, My brother may remember the serial on this one. But it was a very early '68. As a Midwest car, St. Louis, college in mid-MO, the tin worms were feasting on it. By 1981, the rear shock towers and rocker panels were getting tack welded patches. The car was sold in the summer of 81 to a school teacher in Iowa, so I expect that the body had by 1990, returned to the earth. In 1979, we painted the car a caramel tan and we put cognac seats and panels in, leaving the lovely sisal carpeting as it wore like iron and added Coco mats. Short console and 8 track stereo, de rigor in the day.

    Torque Settings for Kugelfischer Pump

    Yes, I did get silly referring to and tagging Tomas de Torquemada, the Dominican Friar who became the first Grand Inquisitor in the Spanish Religious crackdown, nobody was expecting.....

    Torque Settings for Kugelfischer Pump

    The manuals and web pages I have found, describe the removal of the sprocket and the pump, but not putting the thing back where you found it nor the torque settings for the two bolts holding the K Fischer to the front plate. Even the list above does not appear to address these two bolts. I am surprised these were not listed in the table, unless there is some odd way of describing these that did not translate well.

    1968 only colors?

    Back in 1978, the 1968 2002 that I bought off of my brother (which was over painted in white) was originally Manilla with a chocolate brown interior, no headrests or holes for same. Sisal carpeting. Hydraulic clutch. My brother had gone through over a dozen '02's in the day. The '68 was the lightest and best handling of the bunch. Very toss-able as it was essentially a 1600 with a large motor. The chrome belt line had little black divots fore and aft.
  5. I am looking at the Torque Setting guide from the Articles. My confusion may simply be one of terminology. The pump is held by two bolts to the front engine cover. We are not finding these torque settings in this document or the K-Fischer Pump manual. Thanks!

    Behr Console Opportunity

    It's a tii, so I have the clock already.
  7. While it is months away from paint and reassembly, I have the Behr Console test fitted with the vents, knobs, buttons and my Japanese Blaupunkt Frankfurt assembled. While I have the Ashtray, I have to ask myself "Myself, is there a better use for the ashtray opening?" Any ideas? The radio has the Blaupunkt 6 prong accessory jack. It is also set up for 4 speaker stereo with a fader control. So, I am going to have a Bluetooth adaptor for phone and iPod use. I will be replacing the green plug with a dual USB port a la Kooglewerks consoles.

    Replacement Motor Stampings translator wanted

    Now a 1999 factory motor document which shows on page 10 that a M10 marked 23E was a 20B motor. Assume that the US suffix was a market designation. bmw_engine_identification.pdf

    Replacement Motor Stampings translator wanted

    A few more items: Cylinder Head casting - Feb. 1976, Block Part # from original 1974 Casing and X X signifying a rebuilt motor.
  10. Previously posted in the Turbo Zone in error. My '73 tii has a factory replacement block. I wonder what these marks reveal... The block was cast with the EB Foundry Mark. I suspect that 2 D 74 is 2 April 1974. Marking 1 is A 3 6. Marking 2 has the BMW logo and 23 E US. Further down the mounting is the stamp '5413'.

    Under dash speakers

    When I re-assemble the car after paint, I have a pair of the Kooglewerks speaker blisters. It replaces all of the under dash cardboard with hard plastic. Worth checking out. I will also have two parcel shelf speakers, all driven by a Japanese Blaupunkt Frankfurt that is set up for 4 speaker stereo.
