  1. used fuel tank filler pipe $38 shipped retails for $77, see 2nd picture
  2. Hi all, I have been doing some reading on the fuel system and I am still a little confused on the "best" configuration for the fuel delivery and fuel return. Since we can modify 2002s much more with products and emissions equipment now no longer required, I wanted to figure out what is a cleaner/ simpler setup... Current configuration: -74 2002 -M10 -32/36 Manual choke carb -stock fuel configuration WITH return line (photo attached of setup) -no smog equipment (all removed) -daily driver Questions: - can I plug the return line? - if yes, what are the benefits? what would be a drawback? - what does the small hose that leads back to the base of the carb do? Vacuum? - should I add in a fuel check valve? If yes, benefits/drawbacks? - anything else to consider changing?
  3. My 02 fuel level sender is dead, and im in real trouble finding a new one (at least at a reasonable price...) they are NLA everywhere... (tried bavauto, pelican parts, etc...) I´m wondering if its a good idea to install an aftermarket solution like this ive found on amazon... any thoughts?? Thank you!
  4. Anyone able to describe (or draw on my photo) of where the fuel line comes from? I got a 76', it was all apart and I am just trying to put it all back together. I can't seem to find where it comes from the fuel tank. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Just as an FYI - Study on effectiveness of ethanol additives and ability to control water (by brand). Spoiler alert: only 2 of 8 brands tested were effective. https://cropwatch.unl.edu/documents/Ethanol and Water Contamination 09052014.pdf
  6. Hey Guys, I've got a carb situation on my hands that is the, "I am lucky stuff didn't burst into flames" severity. I need some help as carbs is something I've very little experience with aside from small adjustments/tuning. My problems consist of: completely missing my secondary throttle rod. open butterfly poor engagement and slipping inside choke / throttle / butterfly and most importantly; 4. gas leakage from throttle body, lower throttle rod assembly throttle valve stud, and idle air valve (I THINK!). I would greatly appreciate suggested plans of action / possible parts availability / links to similar threads. I'd be stoked if ya'll had a few old donor bits lying around or possibly best / straight-forward replacements. I don't want to do any grinding or mods on the intake manifold and I'd love to stick with the original 32/32 carb (whether it be replaced entirely or rebuilt). its unfortunate I am missing parts putting me past a simple rebuild kit... but I don't even know if it will be worth the rebuild as I've never done it before and I've heard of to many horror stories of rebuilding and failing 4-5 times in a row. I know the whole thing is is super grimy. A clean up is fully intended. Let me know your thoughts! I would even appreciate a text or call if you've got the time. Located in Portland, Oregon.

  8. Looking to buy an early (short) fuel sending unit. Based on my research the early ones are approx. 7 7/8" and the late style ones are 8 7/8" in length. The switch occurred somewhere in mid 1973 I believe. 1974 and on for sure. I have attached a picture of my current (broken) unit for reference. Thanks!
  9. Anyone have a spare in-tank fuel filter they want to sell? Found one online for $18 which seemed steep.
  10. I'm nearly finished with my sidedraft install but I'm confused about the fuel lines. I've been following the installation article and it looks like the fuel line from the firewall goes to the fuel pump, then fuel pump to filter to carb with "Tee fitting." My question is what do I do with the other hose that comes from under the battery area (seen in the upper right of the 1st pic below)? It was connected on the left of the small valve shown in the 2nd pic below.
  11. Did a quick search and did not find anything (no dead kittens, I hope) My old weber 32/36 had a shut off solenoid built into it, that shut off the fuel when the car was turned off. The now installed 40DFAS does not, and I suspect that the ambient fuel pressure when the car is turned off is pushing fuel through the carb, puddling fuel in the intake manifold. If the car only sits for a few minutes, it fires right up, after being driven, but any longer and I usually end up hold the accelerator pedal to the floor to start it. And I have see the puddles down in the intake manifold. So,, What recommendations does anyone have on a fuel shut off valve. Likely installed between the fuel pump (stock, mechanical one, Pierburg) and the carb ? I might see if I can retro fit the 32/36 solenoid onto the 40 DFAS but if not, will go for a shut off valve.
  12. I am installing a Carter 504 electric fuel pump in my 02- not because I think it is a great idea, but I was laboring under the misconception that it would make my life easier when working on my dual sidedraft setup. I had been using Cannon manifolds, which positioned the front carb such that I had to remove the fuel pump whenever I wanted to remove the top cover of the carb (e.g., when checking float height). I decided to nuke the Cannon manifolds, primarily because they are designed in a way that prevents syncing the front to rear carbs. The rear manifold is canted up (I would guess to help it clear the brake booster) such that it is impossible to link the front and rear carbs. I tried to modify the linkage to make this work, but could not. Anyone with dual sidedrafts know how important it is to balance the carbs. IE came out with a single piece manifold and I bought one and am installing it. Now that I have installed the manifold (see pic), I find that there seems to be plenty of clearance to remove the top of the carb. Anyway, I am committed to install the electric pump. Here is my question. The docs that come with the pump say "DO NOT INSTALL IN THE TRUNK." Yet, in searching on the list, I see that many people have installed pumps in their trunks. I understand that the concern is that if there is a problem with the pump, a hose or there is car crash, etc. that would be bad thing. I am wondering if any of you or anyone you know has ever experience a problem because of a fuel pump installed in the trunk. Here
  13. Does anyone know what kind of carb is hiding behind the ribbed jelly donut intake/fitler-holder thingamabobber in this pic? I'm fairly new to '02's, but haven't seen anything that looks like this in my experience or via internet searches. Big thanks!
  14. So I built up this unit for myself. It will live where the mechanical fuel pump used to live. It should be adjustable between 2 and 6 psi. Testing to follow shortly, but thats what I designed to and I dont know antly setup running outside that range. Unless I see some major interest, it may just be a one time thing. All parts machined, any production units will be anodized. Obviously the more interest the lower the price. Price largely driven by machining costs. If I get 20 people interested look for pricing around 150 each not including gauge. That youll have to get yourself. Any takers? Questions welcome. Edit: Inlet nipple will be brass not aluminum as seen in the photos. Fuel exits through the top banjo bolt. Pressure is adjusted with the M5 set screw seen in the front of the unit.

  15. Quick question about the Weber 32/36 fuel inlet (or inlets). Looking at the attached photo I found on Google, you'll notice one of the fuel inlets is plugged. My car doesn't have this plug - it's just open to the atmosphere. Would this negatively affect the performance of the carb, or should I leave it as is?
  16. Looking to source (new or used) a replacement fuel level sensor for my 1970 02. I guess they changed in '72 to taller units? Regardless, I've come up empty looking for NOS or new options for my defunct sensor. Any leads would be appreciated. Failing that, where can I get some of that ultra-fine wire they use inside?

Hey guys, This has never happened before in the 9 years ive had the 2002.... i filled up the tank and now every time i stop the car there is a huge puddle of gas under the front end coming out of the tube in the pictures. I drove the car 20 miles to see if it would use and dump more fuel and stop leaking and it didnt. i traced the tube all the way back and if i followed it correctly it is attached to the top of the gas tank. So it seems to be some sort of tank overflow tube???? But this has never happened!!! Thanks so much guys for taking the time to help me!!!

  20. I have a 1973 2002 that has been sitting for about a year an a half because I've been recovering from a back injury. The last time I drove the car, I went to get some gas on my home, and when I went to turn the car back on it was completely dead. After some guys helped my push start it, I drove it home and parked. Fast forward to this afternoon, I removed the air filter on the carb to be able to inspect my starter and being new and naive to working on cars, I stupidly pushed on the choke plates on the carburetor (closing them, they had been about half way open before that). After reconnecting the wire that had come loose from my starter I went to start the car and I can't get it to start. I had some help while trying to start it, I would pour a very small amount of gas into the carb while my wife tried starting the car. The car will turn over and start up but die immediately. I feel like it might have been my "adjustment" on the carburetor that is causing the issue, that or a faulty fuel pump. I have questions, do you all (without a doubt more knowledgeable about cars than me) think it is the fact that I pushed on the choke plates, closing them. Or could it be the mechanical fuel pump, which has always seemed a bit weak (I've had the car for 11 years). OR... am I just way off in your estimation, what else could it be? Thanks for any knowledge you may be able to impart. Cheers!
  21. Hey guys. In the process of replacing the mesh on the fuel filter located at the bottom of the fuel sender. I got the old fabric out of the ring and have some brass mesh (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005H2VCGC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc) I thought I'd solder in. Problem is, they won't solder together. I have a Weller 240w soldering gun and I tried using flux too with no luck. I guess I have to pick up welding? lol Please give some suggestions/ideas. Thanks.
  22. I got a Filter King fuel pressure regulator and filter and was trying to find the best spot in the engine bay to mount it. This was really the only spot that it fit, but I wasn't sure if it was okay to mount it here: Please let me know if this is a bad spot for any reason. I also have new fuel line I will run to the carbs. Thanks again, couldn't work on this car w/o you guys.
  23. I know this has never been talked about before.... in the history of time, so I thought I'd talk about it. Kugelfischer pump O-rings are up to $7/ea from anyone online. Sorry, that's just wrong. I'm not going to pay that so my question is, first, were the original o-rings round or were they square-rings? The "Genuine" o-rings you buy now are round, so if they are truly genuine and original then I guess that's the answer, but when you take them out of the top suction holes they're square. I know they take the shape of the area they're in but since they also make square-rings I thought I'd ask if anyone knew. Second, does anyone actually have the specs for the suction o-rings? ID, OD, cross section. https://www.marcorubber.com/o-ring-size-chart-index.htm
  24. I have some N.O.S. genuine fuel filter PN 13 32 0 680 150 still in original bag, used in the NK 1800Ti, TiSA, 2000TI, but looks very good in any BMW 2002 or 2002ti (only mechanical fuel pump) This filter is washable, for a lifetime use, made in Germany. I added some pics installed in my 2002ti, I made a bracket very simple. $99.99 shipped to the US Continental International buyers https://www.ebay.com/itm/292291335358
  25. Is 5/16" fuel line close enough to the original 8mm fuel lines in a base model 2002? Technically 5/16" is 7.9375mm, damn close but not dead nuts. Anyone done this, results? Thanks!
