  1. lets get this party started.... I know Markmac has his awesome site..but its offsite... .lets do this onsite.. and I feel the history of the 02 in Motorsports is often overlooked.. so lets add to this thread over and over.....waddyasay?
  2. Why does it seem so many FAQ'ers out there are so opposed to driving their 02's in wet or stormy weather?
  3. It was hot and slick before the Corvette oiled the track, then all manner of crazy broke out. Good hard racing with the Mid-Bore Production group:
  4. 2017 Rolex Video is Posted

    I raced 4 of my cars at the 2017 Rolex Reunion in Monterey. The 315 ran in Group 2A, the CSL in Group 4A, my Chevron B16 (with an M10) in Group 7A, and my NK 1800Ti in Group 3B. All 4 ran well, with only a minor diff issue in the CSL. Hope you enjoy, and leave me a 'Like' or a comment. Here's the link:
  5. Grice and I figured out how to remove the steering lock and still have a fully functioning ignition. Here is how, Start by drilling out the roll pin underneath the ignition. You will know when you break through when the ignition tumbler moves. The ignition tumbler should pull out now. Now rotate and remove the piece behind it Use a punch to remove the plate on the right side, catch the spring slider assembly and pull out the locking pin. This is what the locking pin looks like, throw it out. Lube and reassemble with a new roll pin.

  7. We raced Luigi and his English cousin Dorothy the B16 Chevron at the Weathertech International at Road America last July. You may remember that Dorothy is part German in that she has a Lester Owen M10 powering her. Mixed results on the weekend. Luigi had an issue in practice, and Dorothy nearly had a run in with some wild Texans in their GT 40's. Leave a comment or a 'like,' and thanks for watching!
  8. 1800 @ Monterey

    We raced the mighty 1800 in Group 3B on Sunday at the Rolex Reunion. I started 40th and managed to pass some cars and finish 31st. I'll be posting the video in a few days. Here's just a teaser shot that Terry took on the grid:
  9. I´m looking for the BMW 2002 fia homologation papers, from 1968 to 1973, does anyone knows where I can find them? I searched the forums but most of these requests were made about 8 years ago. Thanks, Phil
  10. Photos of the latest race car build just-before it loaded onto the transporter. (Many thanks to Mike for coming down to shoot these fine photos; a portfolio of his fine work can be found at http://www.mikevillavisuals.com ). A day after the car reached its destination, it was decked-out in a Warsteiner tribute livery). Perhaps in 2017 I'll get back to that coast and race with and against it. -KB
  11. After a long, long, long (long, long) really long time, the alpina car finally has paint on him. Couldn't do the black, just too hard to do on a race car that has a body largely made up of fiberglass panels (and true it probably still would have been better than it was back in 1975). White was the first paint and the way Quester drove it in '74 (and 99% of everything i have photographically is the white color). They had a little fixing to do and then the stripes (+ trunk, engine bay and interior), then its coming back home to me where I will do a good bit of assembly (although with fresh paint and cold weather, probably going to let it sit a bit and cure out before i do much), camera phone pic is all I have for now, better ones to come.
  12. Few years ago, I had the stupid idea to buy a new rev counter with some new features like tell tale, shift light etc. Now, lying around since 3 years or so, I started now to modify the instrument cluster to another classic look. A bit of challenge to change the place of the speedometer, but at the end of the day, I like it. W.
  13. nostalgia

    Polaroid shot I took on the return from the 1971 TransAm at Le Circuit Mt-Tremblant. Only one I took , I was there for the PonyCar.
  14. I raced my 1965 BMW 1800 Ti at the Charity Challenge and had a great race long battle with Marc Hugo in his 356 Porsche. Lots of action in this one. Here's the link: Marc had a camera on me as well. Here's the link: Enjoy, and thanks for watching!Don't forget to 'Like,' leave a comment, or maybe subscribe?
  15. do any vintage racing sanctioning groups permit '02s with dry-sump lubrication? mac.
  16. I have never attended this event but hope to this year. Anyone else planning on going or racing their '02? Is there an opportunity for a "meet and greet" in the parking lot? If I can only make one day, which day would be better? Please advise and thanks in advance.

  19. Howdy Fellow FAQ junkies, it's been a while. The title pretty much sums it up, I'm going to drive my only car, my '75, from Oakland to LA to learn a little about racing at Willow Springs with the Alfaholics of AROSC. I know it's a dumb idea, especially considering how much I have to do to button up the car for track duty on the 12th and 13th of Nov. I still have to secure the battery properly, Find a way to make my fan shroud work with my new I.E. rad, Figure out why said rad is cooling worse than my old garbage rad... Rebuild the clutch MC so it stops leaking and I'll be legal, Siphon and replace steering box oil, Flush and bleed brakes, Make a crappy catch can for the rad and the crankcase, Adjust valves, Adjust rear brakes, finish ordering parts for all that + spares, and get stuff organized so I can film this Roadkill-type adventure. This is my list of shit to have on hand for if... (knock on wood) -Oil, enough for a change+filter, Brake fluid, Diff oil -Coolant and like 10 gallons of distilled water -Permatex Ultra Black, Blue Locktite, Gasket Material, Bleeder line, Zipties, Duct tape, Safety Wire -Water Pump, 71 Themostat, Coolant hoses and clamps -Brake pads -Fuel pump (see question below), fuel line, fuel filter -Extra ignition module, rotor, cap, plugs -Guibo, rocker hardware, feeler gauges, valve cover gaskets -Ramps, jack, jackstands, buckets, pans, funnels, timing light, torque wrench, dremel, grinder, hand tools, BFH, Paint filters, Fix-a-flat, Road flares, Anti-Zombie weapons, Tent, Cooler, Tarp, Sleeping Bag, Fuel and coolant for me -Maybe: Alternator, Coil, I.E. Blue Brake Pads? Hmmmmmm. So I'm all ears if you have something to say about all of that. Here's my only two real questions at the moment: Q1: Part number/maker of this fuel pump? I've been meaning to ask for a while. I dug through the internet for a long time, but got annoyed. Logo is "PN" with wings and a chevron/ shield. I've seen it once before but I can't remember whose car it was on. Looks like a long rod? Even if you just knew the manufacturer, that would be helpful at this point, I at least want a rebuild kit to pack. Q2: This has been asked in a thread many years ago, but never followed up on with a part number(s). What is the part number for the grommet under #10? It probably needs to get replaced when I rebuild the thing. Is it the same grommet attached to #14 in this picture? It kinda looks like it, and I need them too. I don't think it (they?) are #34314450055 shown in the brake master cylinder expanded view, that diagram doesn't even look like mine. Please don't be passive aggressive and post a link that I overlooked. It's just going to break when the site gets updated and the next guy won't be able to see it. If I missed something, my bad! I'll post the answer on this thread too then. In other news, I finally decided between building an M20 or a boosted M10...more to come..........
  20. http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-bmw-2002-12/ I want it. 268 hp for a 304 seems highly optimistic thou.
  21. I just posted the video from the CRC run at Portland International Raceway. Lots of 02 action. Here's the link. Don't forget to help out by 'Liking' or subscribing. Thanks for watching!

  25. Hello FAQers, I'm using a fuel cell in my car and plan on using an aftermarket fuel level sender in it. i just want to know which ohm range i would need for the cluster to read the correct level in the tank. Or at least where to look for that information. I don't know if different years on the 2002 had different fuel level sending units??? I have a silver dollar cluster as well as a later one from a '73 so if i could get info on both that would be great if there's any difference. Any help would be much appreciated. -Andrew
