    radiator

    BMW radiator OEM & NLA message if interested
  2. On the way to the SoCal Vintage BMW Meet the new to me car was overheating when reaching highway speeds. The drive was a bit painful with multiple stops to let the car cool and took forever since i had to keep the car at about 80km/h. We didn't get to Santa Barbara until after 1am. Early morning and slow drive to Van Nuys followed. The plan for the show was to set up the tents, put the cars in place, and then find a suitable radiator. By the time we made it to Woodley Park, Ray from Elefant Supply already had the canopies set up. We did a little rearrangement, unloaded 3 tourings and had the FAQ booth functioning. Shirts, cars and tiny cars were on display, so it was time to find a radiator. Lucky for us Jack Fahuna had 3 at his shop, ProBimmer, about 5 minutes away. We were able to get the newly recored radiator, thermostat and a switch, just in case. After some socializing and looking at cars it was time to finally get the radiator in place. The best way to get this done quickly is to have Jan and Alex Echeverri standing by. Here are the photos of what happened between 1:00PM and 1:27PM Removing clamps and disconnecting the hoses: A well deserved drink Removing the old radiator Positioning the new radiator 4 bolts going in Connecting the hoses Termostat In Installing the sensor All done Running the engine to get the water flowing. Heater is on. Waiting for thermostat to open
  3. Getting excited for Brisbane! Derby's original wheels are redone in the PC paint color (Thank you Anders!) and with PC tires. Michelin XAS 165/13. Hubcaps will be mounted at Brisbane. Got the alignment done today and making Derby safe to drive the 100mile round trip to and from Brisbane. (And to those of you who saw the glossy paint on the radiator, I had them redo the paint, take it down to metal and paint it satin black, much better! Thank you to Patrick from Bill's shop who did such a beautiful job on it! ) Time to get both cars detailed now! Hope to see some of you there!
  4. Here are some pics of the the radiator install. I went with Griffin Scirocco style radiator. It is only about 13 or 14 inches wide but super thick. I also knew I wanted to keep the front core support, so I used some box tubing with a decent side wall thickness to rebuild the core support with a forward tilt. The electric fan is a pusher style Spal. Added some support tabs that the bottom radiator channel will sit on. I will add some small rubber bushings so the radiator is not riding metal to metal. The top section of the rad was supported with some brushed aluminum I had lying around. I used a wire wheel and then a flap wheel to give it a nice brushed aluminum look. Works great at locking the radiator in place. So, I knew that I was not going to be running drive-by-wire for the s54 and the typhoon ecu I ordered was set up for a throttle cable. I also knew I was not willing to pay $300 for a bell crank that is offered by some companies. So I made one out of an old BMW throttle body and bolted it in place of the throttle motor. Here is the throttle crank attached to the motor plate. You can see from the cut out that BMW throttle bodies supplied by Dellorto have coolant passages, which I very cool. Here it is attached to the engine. Admittedly, it was not my idea. Some e30 guys who swap in s50's use a similar setup.
  5. Radiator is mounted, all the trim holes and rust spots are finally taken care of. Now they just need to mount the front spoiler, and get the quad headlights mounted. Rear brace and battery holder is done as well. Still need to mount the fuel cell and delete the spare tire well so there is room for the exhaust. Unfortunately that wasn't included in the original bid. Also, still waiting on the rear subframe so I can install the rear coilovers. Shot of the front adjustable camber/castor. Here is a picture of my quad headlight setup. Pretty rare, should make the car nice an unique. and a reference of what they look like installed. Crossing my fingers for a big tax return. Mark, don't fail me now.

    Thermostat

    Looking for none operational thermostat for BMW 2002. Thanks
  7. Looking for a nice fan shroud for the radiator. Shipping to 30315. Thanks, Garrett
  8. I have two radiators one is from my 2002 the other and early e21. Basically they are cores, I know for sure the 02 one had a leak. $75 for the pair or $40 a piece. Shipping available
  9. As shown in decent condition, removed from running and driving late model Tii. Not tested but no leaks. Shipping and any PP fees extra, lower hose has been removed.
  10. I've dug around the forums, but couldn't find a definitive answer. What lower hose is compatible with the W+N high cooling radiator and A/C? I've read that W+N sells a 90 degree hose that works, but would part number 11531266452 work? Does anyone have some photos of this radiator installed with A/C? Thanks!
  11. This is where it wants to live on a 80’ish day. Too hot?
  12. Ok guys… A quick question from the “dumb blond” female on this board, who is new to all this. We have acquired a 1974 BMW 2002 automatic that is definitely a project car. The next thing on the repair list is the radiator, as overheating is a constant issue. I have research many forums, an expectedly, have learned of many opinions on what to do, or not to do, on the 2002 rads. Some say recore, same say use a 320i or A Honda Civic rad. Others suggest a totally new one that is 3 core, while others say that is old school thinking… You only need two. Also, strong opinions on all metal vs newer, and much less expensive, aluminum and plastic rads. While I certainly understand the difference in quality, how much would this effect an 02 that does not need performance upgrades? It will be used as a general use, everyday car. We have some mechanical ability, or am certain that we can do, or learn how, make minor alterations. With that in mind, and being budget conscious, how would you long time 2002 enthusiasts suggest as practical and economical rad fix? Also, would you replace the red fan as well, an if so, with which one? Any thoughts or input is greatly appreciated. I have read so much conflicting info, I am all confused as to how best proceed. Much thanks, Annie
  13. Hey all, When I first bought my tii, which I've named Opi ("old man/grandpa" in German), the PO said there was a slow coolant leak but he didn't know where. Fast forward to this morning, I was having more trouble than usual starting - it takes about 4 tries, i.e, letting it crank ~4-6 times, turning off, & repeat, but this time it took 5 - so I did what one member recommended and gave it just a little gas while cranking. It fired up after a couple cranks but I heard a loud-ish pop. I figured it was just extra gas igniting in the cylinder, but I'm just taking a wild guess. Thoughts? Fast forward even more, when I pulled into work, I popped the hood to take a look. It drove nicely on the way in - good power, responsive, steady idle - but I noticed a small puddle of what I'm fairly certain was coolant in a crevice on the engine block. (I didn't have a flashlight, so I could be imagining the greenish hue; note to self to add a flashlight to my trunk kit.) I recently topped of the coolant and may have overfilled it. Is what's in the picture the coolant drain, and if so, could it just be a leaking coolant plug/seal? What's got me worried is that my catch-can always has murky/milky fluid in it. I've read that it's usually one of two things: condensation, or coolant blow-by. I've also read that the combination of coolant loss & murky oil can mean a cracked head. Fingers crossed that I'm making more of this than I should be. Also, one more detail: I took Opi into a mechanic that I've got a long history with & trust who knows a lot about these cars, and he said it drove really well for it's age and nothing set off any alarms for him after a fairly hard drive. ~Andrew
  14. I'm using a scirocco style rad with my m20 swap and I'm wondering what other folks have used for hoses. Seems the scirocco outlets are approximately 1.25" while the E30 water pump outlet is around 1.5". I'm thinking about piecing together universal parts from Jegs involving a couple reducers, straight and angled connectors and some straight hose. I'm wondering if there's a more elegant option here. Thanks

  17. Price:: 100 Location: : Suburban Washington, D.C. I have a relatively unused e30 radiator for sale as seen in this photo. Less than 2K mi. since installed. Ready to go! Much more efficient than the stock 2002 radiator. Upgrade now before the hot weather strikes! Asking $100 + shipping. Thanks for playing! -Marc
  18. Has any ever tried tucking their radiator under the upper front valance to save cutting it? See my pics, is there any reason this wont work? I have essentially cut so that the radiator fits leaning forwards right up against the bonnet mounting supports. Probably gains about 2 inches in the middle area of the radiator. I would cut a hole in the top of the valance so I can fill the radiator. There are obvious downsides... 1) Removing the radiator once the engine is in.....? 2) Installing the M20 block with the valance still in place (much less space) Anything else I'm missing? The obvious upside is the valance stays which makes the whole install look nicer (or would do once cleaned up and painted)
  19. Just scored this on ebay.de - a lucky break - OVP, no less. $140 delivered to my door.
  20. Hi guys my older brother left me a unfinished beautiful BMW 2002. One of the final things to complete, is a radiator swap. I have a civic aluminum radiator I don't have any experience working on cars except handing my brothers tools. I have a sheet of aluminum I could weld on each side and bolt it to the body to make it fit, but I don't know how to weld. I've looked at this post http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/130722-aluminum-race-radiator-from-civic-in-2002-done/ still pretty confused on what to do. Where can I get these mounts or someone to weld for me? I would like to learn how to do it myself though.
  21. I used the Volvo 240 radiator in a track car a long while back and had really good results and no problems with it. I would like to do the same with a new build but don't remember several key points in the setup: What expansion tank and connections are used? What supports are used on the top and bottom especially for a car driven hard? What hoses are used for the top and bottom to a standard thermostat and divider? Pictures of your setup would be very useful. Thanks
  22. Relative NOOB with 2002's so forgive me, but I thought I'd post my day long adventure trying to install the excellent new Wallot & Nesch high capacity radiator in place of a 1997 BEHR 320i radiator with "crimped" lower hose. It turns out you need a 320i radiator with the lower radiator port facing passenger side (vs. normal rear exit on 2002 radiator) because it needs to clear the air conditioning compressor pulley. I got my 02 several months ago from a local CCA member after patiently waiting 5+ years for him to sell it. I noticed the lower radiator hose exited to the pass. side and was crimped nearly in half. I decided to replace it with the W&N radiator along with new HEPU water pump. Due to the 2002 lower radiator port exiting to rear, I had to drop the A/C compressor down as low as it would go and remove the A/C drive belt as the lower hose was still touching the pulley with new radiator installed. (not sure if any custom brackets will help with clearance) Not too concerned about lack of A/C living in SE Pennsylvania (and Vintage is in May vs. August) so I'll see how the comfort level is in one year. That's what the quarter lite windows are for..... Removed a "Worldpac" brand water pump which had been seeping at the mechanical seal intermittently. Not sure who installed that or what part of the world it came from. Had a slight bit of side play in the bearing shaft so glad I replaced it too. Looks like the IE aluminum radiator might have worked with the lower port pointing upwards but "out of stock". First pic is looking up from below at A/C pully brushing against lower radiator hose. 2nd is 320i Behr radiator with crimped lower hose. 3rd is final install shot.
  23. Hi Guys, I have been hearing a lot about the Evan waterless engine coolant. Has anyone used it their 2002? How were the results? I put in the BMW Blue coolant now and have external push fan on the radiator that's on a thermostat switch but, if the ambiant temp gets hotter then 85 degrees, the car will run warm. Not much over middle but, it does go over. Particularly when sitting at stop lights. I have a new head, water pump and radiator (along with the fans) in the car so, I'm not sure what else I can do from a mechanical point of view so, I thought I would look into the waterless coolant. As always, your thoughts are appreciated! Mike
  24. What is the optimum engine temp? infrared/led temp gauge to determine if the thermostat is working or not, but don't know operating temp. Sorry for being a dorkiss.
