Location: : Bozeman MT SOLD - PM me about any parts in the photo you're interested in. (Sorry the block and crankshaft just sold) I can send close-up photos if you want to see more detail. The Victor Reinz gasket is still new in package. I recall some of the parts are A/C specific and hard to find, but I couldn't find diagrams on RealOem to identify them. If you're in need them, you'll know better than I do. The 3 pistons are piano tops. Not sure of their condition, but they look good to my naked eye.
Hello guys, I have came across some different piano shape piston. Somewhere in back of my mind I think I have read some article where those type of different extruded pistons where explained, but I cant remember it now. So can someone please explain me the differences why there were two types of piano pistons, one where piano shape is not so intense?? My current one is the black one in the background paired with E12 head. Thanks in advance
An engine project including LH 2.2 Several years ago I came to this Bosch LH system used in old Volvos. I became curious, got one and checked it out in an 02 parts car. It ran immediately, but the idle was inacceptable and I didn‘t get this under control. My car was running fine with the KF, so the LH fell asleep again. But the KF is no good for short-distance driving. Too rich when cold, too much soot and too much fuel. Hard to trim to different camshafts, 4-throttles and such. So I took the engine out, removed the KF and started to install the LH2.2 system and some more. Cleaning the chain cover for the tensioner cap: There was a kind of groove inside, probably due to corrosion. I don‘t know. But it is the original part to this engine and it had to return to its place. Yes, I should buy a 4-jaw chuck. Lathers like Tom may dispraise me. Then there are these E21-series filter sockets. I don‘t know what this additional sprue in the centeris for, but I found a purpose for it. Lathing again: An oil temp sender. There are these senders instead of the pan plug, but I think this is not very exact. Wire ugly to run. Coming quite directly from the pump, this should give a true value here. Oil pan: Aluminum version from a 1600GT. I had it already being modified to fit the 02 subframe but I didn‘t know it doesn‘t fit the pickup. So I had to switch to the later E21 pickup: Fits good, but only without this tin can. No. I can't weld aluminum. Base finished: 1600 Block bored to 89,25mm, 2002 crank, tii pianos, -head and -dizzy and a 284° Schrick camshaft. I‘ve never heard much about this, but it was sleeping in the shelf for many years- so I put it in. It fits: So from here we go. Block with ignition, starter, alternator, water pump and base wiring. Open for intake ideas. Concerning the LH system I would need: electric injectors, a second water temp sender, a bypass for the idle air control, a different throttle linkage and some more smaller things. The injector port is taken from a 75-77 320i with K-jetronic, the water divider also. Divider maybe 318i what‘s more or less the same. I already wrote in a thread some time ago that I don‘t like this later 318i intake because of the difficulties about the battery and airbox. The bypass is branched off at the front of the throttle body. A short piece of water line from the hardware store, both ends tapped. I cut slots at the sides of one end and got a tapper this way. Flipped, lathed for a hose and inserted: On the lathe for cleaning the inside: With IAC and fuel pressure regulator: There‘s an additional manual idle valve parallel to the IAC. I didn‘t know if I would need it or not, but to have is better than to need. The pictures are taken on a kind of model engine where I‘ve prepared all items before installing them into the car. Pretty tight , hardly light: The lever linkage maybe the best there is but it is a lot of stuff. Let‘s go cable now. First checkout: Later I added a drag spring between the pedal lever and the soul to protect it from overload. Did you know that the inside of a cable sleeve is called ‚soul‘ in german? Nearly complete: Electrics: Harness with combi relais for injectors, oxygen sensor, pump, air mass meter and IAC. And there‘s a voltage limiter to avoid peaks getting into the ECU but it‘s useless. The limiting is too low and the ECU doesn‘t get a solid speed signal so I had to jump it. I‘ve been driving with the car but I‘m not satisfied with the idle. Maybe replacing the IAC will make it better- as far as the covid regulations don‘t restrict me from working on the car. So far til today
