    M30B35 Knock?

    Will look into this, been kept busy at work so haven’t had a chance to investigate further.
  2. Think I have some, where in Akl are ya?

    M30B35 Knock?

    1. Will do my best to check crank float with everything assembled, clutch in/out while someone measures vibration damper clearance the best way? Reading forums are leading me to believe its potentially the clutch fork, may need to check what TO bearing I've got installed. 2. Need to warm car up without the trans on to verify - which is easier than pulling whole engine to check the thrust bearing at least, which was my initial worrying thought. 3. Confirm TO bearing height, I have a spare E21 323 bearing for my M20 fly onto M52 conversion somewhere I'll compare with, otherwise will need to figure out how to space out everything out further 😣

    M30B35 Knock?

    s14 flywheel, m20 clutch, g240 tranny Was suggested it could be vibration damper - I did use the same part on both engines.

    M30B35 Knock?

    Posted this on the BM Facebook page but looking for good advice too... m30b35 - second engine now. (Took last out for exact same reason) - have a rebuilt m30 spare now *sigh runs perfect cold, ones warmed up a tick/knock appears. At crank speed. Can’t identify the source despite checking over and again up on the hoist? Sounds like the lower front cover area though! Now, finger pressure on clutch pedal, noise goes away progressively til clutch pedals in 10mm or so. Bare in mind same issue with last engine. clutch noise traveling through crank? clutch pushing crank forward enough for expanded x (unknown part) to miss whatever’s touching? 8F4ED9B1-48C2-4088-99C3-C435D037EFC4.MOV
  6. Hey team, on the hunt for a manual M20 g240 driveshaft (320i, maybe 323i) Possibly a 4cyl g240 since I could have it cut down but would need to be justifiably cheaper as a result! pm or drop a reply and I’ll check back regularly cheers Lucan

    Andrews M325i

    Yessss! Nice Andrew. How’re you liking the wheel? Considering upholstering mine too
  8. Yea can measure mine up this weekend to check? Pm length maybe? if it’s longer cutting down is cheaper too!
  9. Drove past you on the way up from the park down the road today as you were loading up? didn’t realize you were a member!
  10. After a 320i manual conversion g240 variant or...just the driveshaft last resort will be lengthening my g260 shaft but have been quoted something silly so would rather not
  11. Had this el-cheapo Brace turn up ~9 weeks after ordering on eBay today too, appears to fit too!
  12. I used a similar expanding foam product to fix my ACS front lip on the E36 after I drove over it. Worked a treat! Put 90% of the front end back together over the weekend, replaced smashed/cracked fog lights in the process. New 635i radiator for the E30 arrived today! Fitted and warmed up the engine before finding various leaks from sensors etc...worst being from the thermostat housing so rad will have to come back out again to get the housing off and resealed
  13. Looking for some advice, going to build my own exhaust to keep funds open for other repairs/upgrades on the E30. Dont want an obnoxiously loud setup and have the following available to use: 3.2 E36 M3 Muffler E36 328i complete exhaust from headers to muffler (probably won’t need) Will buy piping/bends as required. Idea at present: as the M3 muffler has dual inlet 2.25” pipes I’m leaning towards 2 y sections, 1 after the headers and 1 pre-muffler. With 2.5” center section to keep it simple and reduce weight. I don’t see any real benefit to a dual exhaust? Yea?
  14. New redline oil, paint and installed the LSD in the E30 yesterday Finished tidying up cluster today
