Re: '88 635CSi Clutch engagement

Thanks, that helps, I'm going to replace all the pedal bushings on both the M635 and the e28 M5. Separately, that 635 I was interested in is from a friend, so I'm going to help him pull the tranny, and swap that fork lever pivot pin. We may separately bleed out the master. I'll try to report back w...

Re: '88 635CSi Clutch engagement

Maybe the clutch just need to be bleed ? There always seems to be some one posting about problems when bleeding. I recently installed new clutch, slave , mater etc. I bleed the system a few times and it it seemed fine. I drove for a while and wasn't real happy with the pedal feel. One more long blee...

Very nice car, They wheels are interesting. I like them. They don't look like e39 wheels to me. Any chance of a pic of the stampings under the cap.

Re: M90 questions

Good questions here. As far as I know the valves are ok with unleaded. I've never seen anything posted that says otherwise. ive seen a few people who have rebuilt M90s and there was no mention of special valves. LPI? Propane?? No idea on that I used the same torque number etc when I did my m90 head....

Re: Quick Question: Are power sport and power comfort seat hinges the same?

What part number are you using. I have taken apart sport and comfort seat hinges and I don't remember them being the same at all. Since the sport seat seat base is built into the the seat/hinge I'd be surprised if they were the same. But I've been wrong more than a few times on here and publicly hum...

Hey looking good there Bobbo. Good idea powdercoating the air filter box, I tried to repaint mine and its already starting to crumble a bit. What are the black circular items there? I dont recognize them. Its all looking very sharp.

Re: So I'm doing well needed brakes on the cabrio...

Wow Bobbo, that must have been quite a bang when the rotor let go. I've actually had a few nasty stuck on rotors recently as well. Doing my brakes on my Toyota Tundra they were stuck on good. One of them I used a 12 lb sledge to bash it off. The brakes, wheels etc look really good.

Re: Series 1 central vs left side exhaust exit

Its not real obvious but these exhaust tips point to the left by quite a bit. My 79 Euro has this and I just installed the same exhaust in my NA 530i https://bringatrailer.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Screen-Shot-2016-04-07-at-10.06.05-AM.png?resize=620%2C434 https://bringatrailer.com/wp-content/u...

Yes I guess you're right about the spline Bert. Still the clutch plate would have to match the pressure plate and flywheel. Sounds like a headache to me

I notice you are after the bitch clip 25111221849. I think that clip is only used on the 260/5 not the /6. You should check to se exactly what you've got and need.

Re: Series 1 central vs left side exhaust exit

I thought all Euro series one 635s and 633s got the left of center exhaust. With the pipes actually pointing to left.

Just as a curious note, Pod, how many e24s do you have and which ones? I'd be interested to see pics. Maybe a different post? Sorry to infringe on this post :oops:

Re: Getrag 250 vs 265

You definitely need the two sensor holes for your car. If it came out of an e28 it should have them. There were three transmissions in e28s, it would be good to familiarize your self with the details. Mye28 is down right now but they have a good write up on the different transmissions etc. You shoul...

I think your best bet would be to clean the underside off of all that oily mess then take a look and see if you can see where its coming from. Also what are you having to top up? Trans or engine, Or even power steering? I've had steering fluid running back making a mess further back than youd think....

Re: Top Loader gearbox into 1980 M90 635 - any experience?

Top loader?? You mean a Ford toploader? I guess anything is possible but it would be the spline count and size that would be the problem.
