Anyone have a good used 1 734 655.9 AFM?

Looking for a good working AFM for my '95 318is. It was the last year they came with an AFM ("Barn door") before switching to the hot wire MAF in '96. This one has 278k miles and has gotten really erratic. Stranded the daughter last night on the way home from work. Runs fine one minute and then won't idle. Rap the AFM and it'll work for a while before doing it again.

I'm considering opening it up and seeing if it's trash on the rheostat that's moving about. I've already cleaned all the connections at the harness plug.

DF, thanks, but we ordered a rebuilt one today. The old one showed no change in resistance across the range of motion of the 'barn door', which, incidentally, was dragging and hanging up about 2/3 of the way through the range.

ok.....have not had a chance to stop out to the farm to check yet. have been down for the count lately regarding wheels. my benz needs an alternator (nobody stocks one...go figure) and i have the verts tabled for the winter.

the sedan is, well,...a ticket waiting to happen without any exhaust so i am sunk there, too.

in the meantime house projects haven't stopped. bathroom is fully gutted and insulation board being put in place. fresh greenboard (now purple) will be going up next week and the old floor will be removed.

everything is a mess from the old lath & plaster dust...but, it is coming along. i am super happy to have a great neighbor who is able to assist greatly and do things i am not that adept at doing.
