  5. Hey all, You may have seen all the photos from my plead for help; Here. Major carb troubles. I am looking for a complete, or parted out carb. Upgrades are welcome. Grinding, mods, manifold manipulation are not things id like to do. A sweet and simple fix preferably original to the car. Take a look at my post in the hyperlink above and reply/shoot me a message! I am mechanically inclined but not a mechanic or a super know-how. in fact, I am a semi-broke college student who has figured out how to keep a car on the road since my first car which was a 1976 2002 over 15 years ago. Help is much appreciated! steep prices are not a viable option for this guy though. Take care, GH

  7. So I bought this new (old) 1972 Inka. (see other post) it came with the head not installed. I plan on resealing the timing covers, replacing the chipped timing chain guide, crank pulley seal, and installing the fresh head. After looking at the timing I became confused: When the #1 piston is at TDC, the timing ball is at the dead center of the starter hole. (is that the correct position?) I decided to check where the pulley marks where in relation to the pulley pointer (little needle thingy at 2 O'clock) and it turns out it has no pulley pointer! I looked underneath and the pulley pointer is on bottom! (5 O'clock position) I have never seen this! Has anybody else? Can I do the timing from this pointer? Is it still 25 degrees behind TDC? some advise/wisdom would be great! Flywheel Ball location at TDC: 5 O'clock pulley pointer: Where the pulley pointer usually is: TDC with the flat-top pistons:
  8. Thank you to everyone who replied to my previous posts in regards to my little situation. http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/161111-front-end-smashed-can-pinkey-be-saved/ http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/162054-in-search-of-a-roundie-pinkie-replacement-please-help/ (Esty, Mike, LimeySteve, Paul T, Danco, and special thanks to ConKitchen for the Photoshop "Death scene" he created, inspired by Esty. This site wouldn't be the same without you guys! (If I didn't mention your name I still love you) Okay down to business: Remember this ad?- http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/162464-72-inka/ I bought it! along with a boatload of parts and other goodies Now I know what your thinking: "he bought a car with rust?!?" It is virtually all cosmetic rust (except the rear shock towers, starting to go) It is a very original car and very honest. I have a body guy who is a close friend. He has restored many cars (Ferrari, VW bugs/Ghia's, 2002's, American muscle cars Etc.) he took a look at all of the pictures and told me it was very save-able. With the money I have left over I will work with him to fix the rust and repaint to the original Inka Orange. That being said I will be in need of rear shock tower replacements and possibly rear fender panels: whats a good source for them? Anyone here on the FAQ have any? THE SELLER: B-Doon was awesome to work with! he was very nice, took as many pictures as I asked him too, took videos of the doors shutting, helped get the car packed for transport, and overall was a good guy! Not to mention the huge amount of parts and documentation that came with the car! If your reading this Thanks Brian! Here are some pictures of the car: any comments/advice you have is always appreciated! Showing up at my house from AZ: Next to poor Pinkey: Trunk: Rear: Interior: Goodies:
  9. I bought my car in early 2004 with the intent of restoring it. Its *finally* time for my '72 to shine. I finally found a painter I trust for a reasonable price. Frankly, my motivation came because I'm sick of the monthly offers to buy my car off me because they think they can get it cheap. HA! It seems that whenever my husband drive my car he gets a thumbs up, I just get offers to buy it. Anyway, A couple of things I've been mulling over (and if this thread has been done to death please feel free to point me to older ones.) So the German part of me is saying the color (Polaris) is printed on a sticker under the hood, so it really needs to be that color to keep order in the world. The other side of me says, "hot damn!" that warm grey Nevada is beautiful. So, Any regrets on not keeping your original color? I'm thinking of just going for what I like and not looking back. What did you learn from your project? If you were to do things over anything you would have reconsidered or done differently? I went through and made a list last night of things that are too worn and need to be replaced and am getting an order together. I'm getting excited. I'll probably be pouring over project blogs for the rest of the day. Anyway I'm happy to be back here, looks like there have been tons of changes since i was last active (forever ago).
  10. Looking for a clean, low rust, and dent free roundie nose clip replacement for my 73. I'm in Seattle and would prefer something from the PNW or West Coast to cut down on shipping costs. Thanks, James
  11. I just recently brought home my newest project, an early '72 tii in atlantic blue with blue or black interior, and a 'slick roof,' albeit very rusty. It seems to have lived in the SF Bay Area its whole life, and must have been garaged for most of the time. It is a very low rust car. There's one hole smaller than a dime at the passenger footwell where the exhaust pipe runs down from the motor. There's rust in the outer skin of the fenders, rear door bottom corners, and on the rear of the side sills. The nose is original with no snorkel. The motor is in pieces with a cracked E12 head with an '86 date stamp, and a cracked original block. There's an ANSA exhaust, and I have a short block coming in soon from another member here that will give me a great start to build up. The kugelfischer, and all intake/injection pieces came with the car, and I have access to a complete head from a 1600 (118 I think?) if that will work. The dash was replaced with a one piece at some point, but it is VIN 2760048

TL/DR:The Good:-Weber 38/38-Getrag 245 5-speed-custom-ground 292 cam-surfaced and smoothed 121 head-Pertronix ignition-new valve springs, rockers, and upper gaskets-E21 Radiator-HR Sport Springs-Bilstein HDs-ST front and rear sway bars-Brand new Toyo T1Rs on all four corners-fully custom interior-E21 Recaros-Esty carpet-RAAM Audio Sound deadening-Reliable daily driverThe Bad:-Needs new piston rings soon-Could use a new thermostat (included)-Paint is fine, but not great-Slight bubbling on passenger door (three ½" spots)-Interior could use finishing (trim tweaking + finishing of center console)Price is $10,950 - no trades please!And for those of you with too much time on your hands, here's the full story:I bought from its second owner and used it as my daily driver for the past two years. It's not a particularly pretty or original car, but I've put a lot of love, time, and mostly money into it making it reliable and fun.Most of the work has been done by Ken Blasko of BMW Vintage Racing in Long Beach. He's a small shop who races 2002s and he does fantastic work.Since I got it, I put in all new suspension with Bilstein HDs and HR Sport springs, new front brakes (stock) and revamped the rears. The engine has been rebuilt from the top up with a surfaced and smoothed 121 head, new Weber 38/38, custom 292 cam, Pertronix electronic ignition, new valve springs and rockers, and new gaskets. All of that work has been done by Ken.In October we put it on the dyno and it put down 109 HP and 120 lbs/ft torque to the wheels, which puts it at tii levels. The previous owner did a pretty great job at hacking it and ugly-fying it, which I haven't done much to address. It was originally Sahara Tan, but the original owner had it painted Agave Green, and then the last owner put the current Chamonix White coat over it. It's a decent 10-foot job with ok shine, but it definitely isn't show car pretty.As far as I can tell, there isn't much rust. The spare wheel well was starting to rust through a bit, so I sanded down everything and coated it in Por15. There's slight bubbling on the passenger door sill as well, but that's all I've found.The previous owner redid the interior with E21 Recaros in grey tweed and black vinyl. I think it actually looks pretty cool, but it isn't original. The carpet was pretty grungy, so I tore it out and stripped the interior down to the metal. There was a small portion of floorboard rust in the driver's footwell which I had cut out and repaired by a shop. I sanded down a few small surface rust areas and then coated the entire interior with Por15 before installing all new sound deadening from RAAMaudio and a carpet from Esty. It's all wired up for sound, and I have the pieces for the center console, but I haven't gotten around to having a front panel made yet.The previous owner installed an E21 radiator and an E21 5-speed manual (I believe it's a 245), which I improved by adding a shift assembly out of a Z3 - that work was done by Coast Motor Werks in Irvine. Now for the bad (every vintage car has some bad, right?)...The biggest current need is a new set of piston rings. The exhaust will blow smoke out if you decelerate on throttle at 4000+ RPM. After having the engine gone through by Ken and having the entire top end rebuilt, we've narrowed the problem down to the piston rings. Ken has assured me that it's not something to worry about, but it should be addressed sometime in the future.The next thing I would address is the thermostat. Under most conditions, the engine runs along just fine, but after flogging it up and down a canyon or stop and go traffic on an 85º+ day, the car gets a bit warmer than I'd like. I haven't been able to get the engine temperature into the red, but it gets pretty hot under those circumstances. I've had the radiator leak and pressure tested, and measured engine bay temps with an IR thermometer and narrowed the problem down to the thermostat. I purchased one that I intended to put in, but haven't gotten around to it (it'll be included with the car).Other than that, the previous owner saw fit to outfit the car with a few... questionable styling decisions (misfitting spoiler, blacked-out grills, American flag sticker on the back), but nothing too crazy.Tires are all brand new Toyo T1Rs (less than 500 miles on them) and fluids have always been changed at the appropriate times. I've taken it to San Francisco and back, driven it through LA traffic, and used it as my daily driver for the past two years. It's never let me down, and always been a blast.This was supposed to be my "forever car". The one I enjoy for years and then give to my kids, but as is usually the case, circumstances change. I recently got a new job, with a 40-mile roundtrip commute on the 5 in rush hour. Living in an apartment with no garage, and not having any time to drive or work on it, I think it's best to pass it on to the next owner. It's not a car that's made to sit, and I'm hoping the next owner will do it justice.The car is located in Old Town Anaheim, but I can also drive it the office in Lake Forest on weekdays if you'd like to meet there.Feel free to text or email with any questions.

  13. RARE '72 2002Tii Fuel Injected Roundie Numbers matching. Complete car, needs a little TLC. Was running well when disassembled for complete paint and stored in container until a few years ago. Completely stripped of paint so you can see the bare bones and past old body work; see it all. Chrome, glass, factory sunroof, and other bits and pieces in the car. Current blue Texas title in hand branded "RECONDITIONED" back in 1990. Bring a trailer or I can ship anywhere in the world if you pay shipping company.
  14. I am looking for a project car to convert into a turbo, possibly track car. I have all the parts from an old project I had to pass on, but with more time on my hands now I would like to give it a shot. I am looking for a car with solid bones and hopefully a running motor. Don't care about the interior, but would like to find one with minimal rust. I only want to spend a few grand on the car. This may be difficult, but have the time to wait for the right one. oh and its got to be a manual of course!
  15. Hi all, After biding my time for many months, I've found another 2002 that has piqued my interest. I may go see the car in person and would like to be armed with some expert opinions. It's a 1972 tii engine (rebuilt in 1988) transplanted into a 1974 body: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Other-2002tii-/321908909647?forcerrptr=true&hash=item4af344264f:g:dlkAAOSwo0JWNl8o&item=321908909647 The heater seems like a fair amount of effort, but doable for a newbie - and until I get to it, I can just bundle up! I'm concerned about the stalling "when warming" - bad seals? fuel line problems? Any other general thoughts about the car? It would be my first 2002. edit: added "engine" in between "1972 tii" and "(rebuilt..."
  16. My '73 tii retains its original seats -- I'm at least, thus far, convinced they are original. But, planning for the future, I also have two "spare" front seats for the '73. The two spare seats came from different sources, but they appear to be identical in all respects except for chrome recliners on one and black recliners on the other. I will swap out the chrome recliners on the one seat -- for black recliners -- so that the spares match each other and match the original seats in the '73. The point of this post, however, is that, as I disassembled the spare seats in order to commence their restoration, I noticed quite a few dates on the seats, a means of not only verifying their dates, but also the relationship of '02 seat style to manufacturing date. The spare right seat came out of a 1972 model year tii, VIN 2762204, which I parted out in 1974 -- no, wiseguys, I didn't wreck that one, I bought it wrecked. The seat was sitting in the basement from 1974 until a year ago. ("rechts Liegesitz" per the spring tag, or "right reclining seat.") The first four photos below show this spare right seat. The Colorado tii from which it came was manufactured July 10, 1972. Moreover, the inked date on a tag attached to its backrest springs is June 20, 1972 (20. 6. 72), another inked date on a tag affixed to its backrest horsehair pad is May 1972 (? MAI 1972), and yet another inked date on a tag attached to its seat cushion springs is June 30, 1972 (30. 6. 72). Given the relationship of these three dates to the car's manufacturing date -- relatively close to it and preceding it -- I have no doubt this seat was original to that 1972 tii I parted in 1974. Moreover, these three dates also evince chrome recliners being installed on a July 10, 1972 tii. The last two photos below show my spare left seat. I knew nothing of its history except that "it came out of a '73" per the seller, who had owned it for over fifteen years. But, sure enough, an inked date on a tag attached to its backrest springs is October 12, 1972 (12. 10. 72), verifying that it came out of a relatively early '73 model -- and eerily close to the October 19, 1972 manufacturing date of my '73 tii, VIN 2762757, the car for which it has now become a spare. Beware, who will believe 50 years from now that this spare seat was NOT original to VIN 2762757, but was randomly found 43 years after the car was manufactured? I don't know how consistently these inked dates were used over the full ten-year term of the '02, but I'm suspecting they were at least consistently used during this 1972 period, So please check your seats, backrests and seat cushions, and post your findings here. Regards, Steve
  17. Looking for a dipstick for a '71/ '72 2002 engine. Part # is 11431255646. Has to fit the guidetube that bolts onto the block. Has a smaller stopper than part 11431266740 or 11431258350 which are easily found. Appreciate any help. feel free to email [email protected] if you have one or know a good source.
  18. Year:: 1972 Make:: BMW Model:: 2002tii Price:: 8900.00 Location: : Vancouver, B.C. Not mine. No affiliation. This one is back for what must be at least it's 5th re-listing on eBay with the present seller. http://www.ebay.com/itm/161732960148?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT It's VIN 2761399, likely an April '72 car, originally (and still) Polaris with navy blue interior, and a sunroof. It's highly original in my estimation: no snorkle, no firewall notch, plastic intake runners, complete original interior. I mean this car is checking all the boxes! But, yes, there is a problem: major rust! And it's not new rust: it looks like it was previously covered up with gobs of bondo. Somewhere on the FAQ I noted the car's previous high bid -- $3,300 comes to mind but most of the auctions had such high minimums that they received no bids. So what is it worth? If stymee was only a bit further on his Verona tii, he could fix this one! But if you have to pay someone's hourly rate, this one will be a killer! Regards, Steve

  22. Hey guys, i am troubled and frustrated - I replaced my battery and voltage regulator (a nice Beru regulator and fitted autozone battery (Duralast?)) because initially it popped both my headlights and the same time whilst driving in the dark (fortunately my high-beams worked enough to get me home). i noticed my battery was puffy so that's when I replaced the reg. and bat. And headlights. This worked for 2 months and then my new battery literally exploded. Terrible egg smell, battery adic instantly corroded my battery tray and radiator. Once I got the battery out I gave my engine bay a baking soda scrub down and rinsed - fortunately autozone has excellent warranty coverage so I got a free battery and drove my car over to them to check the system- they said my 2 month old beru V-reg was dead and in the 1mi drive over to them it also killed the new battery the just gave me. So I replaced both again (oh yes, my headlights popped again...) anyways, all said and done, they have me the green light and said all systems were working properly and no over charge was occurring. I drove it for 3 days and low and behold my battery broke AGAIN. So so now I need help. Wtf is going on? I had my alternator rebuilt 3 years ago and it has never given me this trouble... and you'd think the v-reg would be doing its job but instead it just breaks. (Also, the atlatik automatic sunroof 73 as seen in pics is for sale. $3500 BaT -after rebuilding calipers and replacing master break cylinder I haven't bled the brakes... and some dummy pushed my break peddle and sucked a bunch of air in the lines. More pics if re-quested)
