    Here's an option for the Spanish Weber, from Calgary.

    I could take the manifold and linkage, and you end up with $500cnd for two 45's Not bad.

    Hi Mr. mild seven this is a great build, I can't believe that someone in my backyard is doing something I have been wanting to do for over twenty years. I wish I would have found this build in the beginning and I would have loved to have offered to volunteer to help with your build if you were interested. I have been following so many builds
    on rev3 and stanceworks etc. I live in Pierrefonds, I would love to see your car one day and maybe I will pick-up an 02 of my own and work on it. It would have been a
    great experience to learn from your build. I hope you will update more on your build. Congrats.
    thanks! I hope to get out to Eurokracy with the '02.

    #EUROKRACYPREP


    2017 Work.

    This took place over the course of a few months, with the carburetor stuff happening in the last month to today.

    Cheapo.
    Instead of buying fender protectors, I made my own with an old quilt. I’ll have some leftover vinyl sewn (by my Nonina) in a few areas to make future messes easier to clean-up.


    KMph Speedometer
    Nothing fancy, just installed the KMph speedometer but while I was at it, I added some additional ground wires for good measure.



    Rocker Panel Trim

    I’ve always wanted to use plasti dip on something, and now I finally had a reason. The plan was to spray the rocker panel, I figured it would allow me to see what it looks like in a temporary but not too temporary fashion.

    I used the black plastidip on the rocker and then I installed the stainless rocker trim.



    Unfortunately, I wasn’t a big fan of the look (Kosta ate a gyro and agreed). It looks cleaner without the lower trim or maybe I was just used to looking at it without the trim. I decided I would re-plastidip the area, and plug the holes with some plastic plugs. I had to re-plastip because I originally masked off the area midway behind the lower trim... and I didn’t do a great job. yay.


    Oil change, check.

    Started her up just to make sure everything was functioning before pulling the distributor out. Would want to falsely accuse the new distributor.

    Valve Adjustment (aka Valve Job, aka VJ)
    I should have done this last year but I just didn’t think about it and then when I did, I would forget again. I was also very anxious to get it running. This time I had the valve cover off (for 123ignition install), so the time was now. #VJ


    123Ignition Tune (Blue Tooth) Distributor
    I made a little wire-harness because I thought the wires were going to be slightly short to the coil (I didn’t really check to be honest). I prefer the cleanliness and ability to quickly disconnect the wires easily over splicing connectors.







    I found TDC on cylinder 1, popped the dizzy in, according to the super thin instruction manual. Turned ignition on and connected with blue tooth from my phone. I programmed the advance specs for the 2002 TI from Haynes book. Reconnected spark plug wires. She fired right up and is already running smoother.

    |

    Using the advance timing light I discovered it was off by 3 degrees by setting it to 18 degrees at 1000RPM (in the 123Tune app), then finding out it was actually firing at 15 degrees @ 1000RPM.

    Excitement is building!!!


    Removed Italian mismatched Webers


    Now that I had confirmation the ignition was firing, I started the fun job of unbolting the Italian DCOEs, the lower nuts which connect to the manifold studs are especially fun. Shorty combination wrenches would be very helpful.



    With the carbs out, I emptied the leftover fuel in to my lawnmower and it was time to swap out the venturis/jets.



    I popped them back in, the velocity stack on cylinder 3 just touched the brake booster so I will shave down the bottom side of it so it doesn’t scrape the booster when the motor rocks.



    They newness makes them look SLICK!

    Throttle Linkage

    I wasn’t happy with what I currently had, picky, picky... so I ordered a new throttle cable linkage from the UK. The new kit has 2 throttle cables, so I fabricated a bracket (out of a thick piece of aluminum) to support the 2 cables above the pedal lever.



    Popped on the brackets above the carbs, made the adjustments...etc

    IMG_6381.jpg

    Tuning.

    I was expecting to spark up the motor, fidget with the carb settings and drive off in to the sunset, but this fn’ car had different plans for me.

    I finally tried to start it 2 weeks ago. No dice. And fuel leaks out of the velocity stacks. I re adjusted the floats, fuel still leaks out.

    After messing around with the carburetors, I got it to start and idle horribly (still with fuel leak). I had to turn in the idle screw a fair amount (which opens butterflies). The idle is not stable, when I try to synchronize the carburetors, the engine speeds up, and is sucking way too much air for the low RPMs.


    I’ve been trying to pinpoint the issue, and have received (and continue to receive) a lot of advice from the folks on BMW2002Faq

    So far I’ve...
    - played with the timing.
    - changed the spark plugs and re-gapped them to .025.
    - tested spark on all 4 cylinders with timing light.
    - double checked spark plug wire order.
    - bought a vacuum gauge to test vacuum signal. The signal is super erratic at idle (which goes in to pressure), then stabilizes with revs.
    - re-checked/did the valve job, in case I messed up something, no issues there.
    - removed the carburetors to replace the intake manifold soft mounts in favour of some paper gaskets... no change was hoping this was a source of vacuum leak or something.
    - finally I put the unmatched Italian DCOEs back in. The motor idles nicely, but does not perform well


    I have emailed RedLine for some support because I don't understand why the new 45DCOEs behave like that.

    Popped on the IE Strut brace I purchased to see if it helps with the carbs



    I've been trying to get all this shit sorted out so I can attend Eurokracy. The 2002 hasn't been on a highway yet and has only 17kms since I finished the resto mod. I will make the final call in a couple of days... if I go solo or with the 2002.

    As a results of peer pressure, I entered the 2002 in the Eurokracy Show & Shine.


    I didn’t enter because I think my 2002 is an amazing car, I mean it’s nice but the cars who show up are much more built-up and crazy. Mine is simple, well done and understated, like my penis.

    I figured if they would consider the amount of effort I (and we) put in to every detail of the car, restoring it from B to Z, in addition to our lack of mechanical experience... maybe we’d have a chance at something, like a pity-prize.

    So I worked on the car Wednesday night to get the old carbs a little more dialed in, then took it out for its first spirited drive since the rebuild (and since the summer of 2014).


    You may remember, during the restore, I repaired and reset the broken odometer to 0 miles. Last year I drove the 02 only slightly over 10miles. This year I swapped the mph for a kmph, and reset this odometer to the 17km from last year. Both speedometers/odometers read 12% higher (because of my transmission and differential). So you have an idea of the mileage I’ve put on the car since rebuilding it.

    On Wednesday night, I tripled the total mileage and took the car up to 90kmph, but still no highway. Fear, I wanted to stay in areas where I can easily work on or get the car home if in trouble.

    Here’s a quick clip, I find that the exhaust note sounds better in the clip then reality.

    Doin’ Some Stuff on Thursday

    I installed some rear 3 point seatbelts using the unused/covered mounting point in the c-pillar. This was important because the plan was Kosta would be riding up front and Ernest in the back (more on this later) on the way up to Eurokracy. I still need a rear bench.



    I then tackled some other small things which needed work before going to a car show.

    - Lack of windshield wipers. I gave them a 2 coats of mat black and a coat of clear. Installed them.
    - Added a big blob of grease on the frame-rails, where water could accumulate and sit under the car.
    - Covered the pedal box opening under the car
    - Since I’m not putting the rocker panel trim on I ordered some plugs and painted them with the same plastidip.


    I took Friday afternoon off work to do some cleaning, detailing and #eurokracyprep.



    This was the first time I washed the 2002 since reassembling it (or even since October 2014). I used my recently purchased Chemical Guys’ Torq Foam Canon with their honeydew wash. Not sure if the stuff actually reduces swirl marks and everything (yet) but it’s pretty fun and cool to use.

    I washed it up in between rain showers.


    Ernest suddenly realized (via text message) that he had to work in the morning and wouldn’t be coming with us to the show. Classique Ernest, I wasn’t impressed.

    Before soccer...

    Kosta showed up to reattach the loose section of the driver door seal, he also did the interior detailing.

    I got to do the polish/sealant.

    After soccer and a couple of beers. I finished up the waxing, polished the BBS lips and the steering center.... I also did another quick pass on the dash. It was 2:45am, I was tired.
    The next morning, I put some tire shine on and headed out at 9:30am.

    Saturday

    I live in Dorval, Kosta lives in Blainville and Eurokracy was in Mirabel. Ernest ditched us and said he would meet us there.
    I took off on the 20 and then the 13, stopping at Ultramar on the 13 for some gas. When you’re doing 110km in this car it feels like you’re doing 140km. Everything was going smoooooooooth until I got back on the highway from the gas station. The accelerator pedal came off, I managed to avoid pulling over and just used the rod behind the pedal to drive to Kosta’s. The gas pedal snaps on to 2 knobs on the floor and the pedal snaps in to it, it popped off. I’ll work something out to solve this.

    ~35kms down with a bit of rain.

    Next stop eurokracy!

    We headed back to the highway for iCar, after another ~22kms we arrived at the eurokracy traffic jam.... waited an hour and 15 minutes to make it past the entrance and park in the show and shine section. The whole drive went smoother than I could have hoped.

    Kosta suggested I lock the doors before leaving the car to chat with old friends. I locked the driver door, trunk and then the key got stuck in the fn’ passenger door. Something which had never happened before. After 20 minutes of trying different things, the key had, had enough and snapped. Luckily Ernest who was probably not going to come to the show, went to a spare at my place and showed up... AND TOTALLY REDEEMED HIMSELF!

    Met some old friends and chatted with some good people. It’s a cool show, the setup and location and the crowd. The eurokracy boys do a great job and help “put Montreal on the map,” we’re fortunate to have such an event. I got some free merch for being invited to the show and shine which was pretty cool and unexpected.

    I had to take off at 3:15pm because of some family obligations (which I was late for, anyway).

    Losers can be Winners!

    I unfortunately couldn’t make it back for Sunday, where we apparently won “Best Euro,” which I assume is like a the best of the rest, like if you don’t win best of your category you have a chance going up against the other 2nd places. I still need to pick-up the trophy from Rick... and also pay him off for the award .

    Sidenote...

    I designed a little "plaque" (sticker) to commemorate the restoration of my BMW, 1976-2016.
    Still need to get the serial number plate because the decal I had printed to go over the vin plate came out too small. It will be riveted below the restoration plaque (in the 2 holes).

    thanks for readin'
    Anthony
