      I tried to embed the video but it doesn't work, such disappoint. Anyway....

      Now we wait on the interior, I'm at a full stop for now :-(

        Nice work, beautiful car. What is the trick to cycling the ABS pump?

              Engine seems a little clackity, doesn't it? Lifters not filling with oil? Maybe it's just the video.

              Also, no burnout video? I am disappoint.

                The engine ran for 5-7 seconds prior to the filming of the video... the engine is new, the lifters are all new, it will take time with the engine at speed to bleed them of air. Its not going to happen in 45 seconds.

                Can't drive the car, don't have any seats, and the rear needs to be aligned first as well.

                    How to Purge Your ABS

                    Comment


                      Vincenze beat me to it, it is really straight forward enough. Basic tools and supplies.

                      Tonight I got the cooling system fully filled and bled. I forgot what a PITA M42's can be to bleed, repeatedly burping over and over while I do a dance with the temperature gauge. Eventually she submitted, the heater started working and the temp needle stands straight up.

                      While I was bleeding the cooling system the lifters took care of themselves and the engine is much much quieter now.

                      Motronic seems to have found a happy steady idle at ~850rpm or so, and man does it rapp out quick and smooth with the lightened M20 flywheel.

                      More sauce: (I'm pretty sure the forum embed tags are broken)

                        That's awesome, I can only imagine how it'd be to drive.

                        Pro MLG tip I've found for bleeding them is to pre-fill the heater matrix if possible, and also massage the heater hoses while it's running to get everything cycling nicely. I still don't like doing it though.

                            The shine of BMW lettering on the valve cover is sick. The revs go so quickly into the power band. Sounds like a dream.

                              Your boi Jord opened business back up without getting you your seats- hopefully that means your stuff will be done soon! The build looks great, as always.

                                Just as a FYI if you have the car that long, the long unavailable LHS door mouldings are confirmed as being back in production and will be available in May.
