    Quick Questions

    When purchasing a timing chain with master link is does that come with the link and cir-clips to connect the chain? It might seem like a weird question but I can't actually find pictures or confirm if all is included without needing a special tool to press the chain etc.

    Quick Questions

    Looking to finish off my engine bay restoration but I'm stumped as to which radiator to buy. Attached is my current one inside my M528i E28 I think one of those switches is a temp switch for the aircon radiator fan...I'm not sure about the other one...what replacement radiator will accomodate these sensors? also do all radiators just have the expansion tank nipple you have to screw in yourself? TIA
  3. That the outfit on Hands Rd? Cheers, I'll give him a visit. It's nice that he has some e21s, he'll appreciate the love I have for my E28
  4. My 84' E28 needs a rust repair done on the engine support, about where the steering box/subframe/ all sort of suspension and steering components join up. When they failed my WOF they basically said I'd need someone that cares about my car enough to fix it correctly due to the fact everything has to be precise. All the steering component etc surround the area. My question is, does anyone know a crowd that would take this on? and has some good skills and attitude to do the job right? I feel it's not big enough to take to a classic restoration outfit but I don't want any old panel shop to botch my car either. TIA.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Na, she did after my engine swap a couple of years ago. Until a few WOFs in. They discovered a bit of rust. We are only on one income after my son was born so $0 to throw at my pride and joy right now

    Had her first wash in a year or two. Covered and garaged once again

    E28 M535i

    I like!
  8. I swapped the sensor positions and also tried turning the engine over with the plugs both ways around.
  9. yep, factory setup. out of a 635i I believe. Swapped them with no luck. I'm only getting one correct resistance from point 1 to 2 of a single sensor, 1060ish ohms. Every other point on both sensors fail to read anything. The other points are suppose to shoot up to 100 000+ right?
  10. anyone out there have one or two of these lying around? I believe it's what is stopping my E28 from starting since one doesnt pass the resistence test. I'm moving house in a week so it's rather bad timing. Anyone got some working ones? dont care if they are bad condition, I'm buying new ones anyway, I just need to be able to drive it to my new place. TIA

    e24 rough idle / Alternator / water pump

    It would cause excess load on the engine and a buggered bearing would also cause a whirring noise. Would it cause it to stall? it shouldn't. But you've established the alternator needs repairing or replacement, so fix that and go from there I say.

    850I V12

    I bet the price halved when it left the factory floor with that paint job

    pldubs - e28 525e

    I'm sure people would love to spend 3k on a stock standard 525e with springs that will give it a pink sticker. try selling it for a grand with stock suspension and sell the wheels separately.
