  1. Only 15 Canadian members?

    Hey, I'm just down the road in London... I'm pretty sure my company (in Dorchester) is working with you guys on some fuel system components for one of our projects. We had a decent order of some custom check valves and other fittings. Anyway, joined up to the club just now - I've been out for a few drives this spring.

    I don't think that it's the long-nose... I'm still learning, but from the drawings I've seen it looks like it's been swapped.
  3. History Help - 1968 1600-2

    Steve everyone, thanks for all of the info... Pretty neat to find all of this out. I couldn't find a serial stamped into the block, but i'll keep looking. I did manage to get a couple of photos of the casting numbers - is this block from '85, so a replacement? I've got some photos of the interior below, too.
  4. Exhaust installed

    Got the Ansa and Starla Note parts installed. Looks real nice and installed in a snap. Check it out:

    Certificate of title says 2006, but it doesn't go int much detail other than that... There's no date on the California reg record.

    Heard back from bmwgroup: "The Vin 1560035 belongs to a BMW 1600 US which was manufactured on September 06th, 1967 and delivered on September 14th, 1967 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Chamonix, paint code 085"

    The clutch is definitely hydraulic... Had to replace the slave last year when I started the project.

    Done and done - Once I have the reply I'll post it up Thanks! I have making them - Keeps me from rushing any work. I'll post up some pics of the manifold, but I suspect that this isn't the original engine - you never know. The seats aren't original, but I'll get some photos of the interior up, too Ah good, I was wondering if this is the original mill - I'll see if I can find a stamping and grab some pics. Thanks everyone! Great info. I'll get some more pics up tonight, some of the engine bay and the interior.
  9. I inherited what I though was a 2002 from my cousin, but upon cruising this site I've discovered that it might be a 1600-2. Someone posted up the following history from a vin registry: 1560035 1968 1967 1600-2 Saloon Manual running Atlantik Black for sale Sep '06 Roadfly Seller - Edward Kurek Buffalo NY ~Aug '67 This is indeed the car, VIN 1560035. Looked through my cousin's paperwork and he bought the car in Toronto from Edward. In Ontario it's registered as an "1968 BMW 02". Previously it came from Iowa where it was registered as a 1602... And before that it was from California. According to VIN look-ups, it seems that it's one of the first of a batch built in September 1967. If you can add anything to what this car is, history, anything at all, I'd appreciate it - I'm new to the community and have a lot to learn. One question I have is: Should it be badged as a 2002, or did someone add this along the way?

    Sorry to hear that... It's strange picking up someone else's project - I've got a lot to learn about 2002s I have a Sony version of a GoPro, and a total knock-off - Plus sometimes I bring out an SLR... I'm hoping to improve and capture some more mechanical stuff with the big camera. I've been wrenching on cars for years and I've tried a few creepers, but they never took... I always just end up worming my way around the floor. Good luck with your project.

    Thanks. Hey, yeah - seeing that footage after the fact makes me think I need to work a little safer. It does take a while to edit down the video, but I mostly do it while I'm just vegging out in front of the TV - the side effect of taping is that I don't rush the work, almost like, you'll do better work helping on a friend's car and cut corners on your own.
  12. 1968. Pulled out of a shed. WI.

    This is the car... Bill of sale when my cousin bought the car was from Edward - My cousin was also in Toronto. ... Looked at my reg and it's listed as an "02" for the model. The car looks like it was in Iowa before it came to Canada, where it was registered as a 1602.

    Last Monday we had a late spring ice storm - the up side is power went out at work so I got a few extra hours in the garage. I was able to open up my dif, add a seal and fill it up with fresh fluid... Made a new vid:
  14. Exhaust arrived!

    Exhaust arrived from Pelican Parts... Got the Ansa and Starla Note combo. New hangers and accessories, too. With some luck I'll have it installed and running this weekend.
  15. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Yeah, no worries - posted to help the community, just glad to help.
