e12 m30 vacuum

hey guys,

been a troll on the site for a while but finally made an account, short introduction of myself, ive worked at 3 BMW dealers as a technician, am a BMW level 3 tech and ASE certified. by no means will i tell you im the end all be all of automotive knowledge but id like to think i am sometimes lol.

this post is about an e12 not an e28 but since no e12 section exists i figured id make due here, sorry lol. to make a long story short i work at a european indy in michigan and we have a 4/76 e12 530i that the PO did an engine swap on and died (literally) before getting it running, so its a CF under the hood as im sure you can imagine, and im mostly wondering if anyone has either a vacuum diagram thats accurate or could just simply take some pictures under the hood so i can kind of get a baseline of what im supposed to be looking at. my experience lies almost entirely of e36 and up so the m20s and m30s arrent really my forte.

any questions just let me know, if need be i can post pictures of it.

thanks for any feedback

john

Why don't you see if you can look up the application on RealOEM.com It has alot of assembly diamgrams, albeit it exploded versions, but you may find what you want there.

tried that already, doesnt have the complete diagram shown, the edges are cut off and you cant see half of it

edit, also tried firstfives.org, the vacuum diagram shown is for a california car and this one doesnt have all the necessary parts for that diagram, either that or the dead guy took them off and didnt tell anyone where he put them
