Idler and tensioner pulleys for the M42 came today. WOW, yay for the USPS! Ordered on Tuesday, got all the way across the country (well, nearly) in two days. I'll put them on Saturday, because tomorrow is another E24 633CSi day all day long.

Things gettin' serious on the 633 today. The cold start valve was DOA and the only way to get at it to take it off was to take off the manifold. :-( While that was off we boxed up the injectors and sent them to WitchHunter for cleaning and flow balancing. Doing cleanup now on the block and manifold. More pictures later.

Heh, I got some sideways action today while it was sleeting. My wide, summer uhps definitely helped.

Just stay away from curbs! Big open parking lots without stop curbs or light foundations are the best

I'm a big fan of keeping stock colours.

I don't think the German flag thing is a good idea. If you want a German flag on it, stickers are the way to go.
