Engine Sound Troubleshooting

My 1989 325i engine makes a pulsating rubbing/grinding sound that is very subtle. It's so soft that it can only be heard while idling and cannot be heard from outside of the car over the other...

By the way, I see that the Bentley manual says rear camber is not usually adjustable. It's because they said "usually" that I ask if this is ever possible.

E30 325i oil leak

"Change the head gasket just to be safe". I wish that was something I could just swap out to eliminate an oil leak. I have a whole bunch of respect for BMW geniuses that help us out. Thanks guys.

Five years newer. It didn't seem like the craziest of ideas to me. And I could see something like an alternator being universal. But, that's what I wanted to know, thanks man.
