Mein Auto: BMW 740i Build Date 10/97
Timing Guides DIY M62 Pre Vanos

OK- So over the winter did a number of repairs & modifications on my 1998 740i with a build date of 10/97.. Its been a blast & she is running smooth at 179,000 miles... This place has been a major source of my ability to do so much!!!

My next major job is to tackle the timing guides and inspect and replace anything needed along the way. I'm flexible on when to start & because this is not my primary transport the start & finish time is not a problem. Would like to build my knowledge on procedure, parts plus special tools.

What I'm looking for is three things:
1. An easy to follow DIY on the Steps needed for the pre-vanos M62 + parts
2. A supplier of the special tools for rent or sale.
3. A Technical Adviser - Could be local (Indianapolis, IN area) or with Skype not so local.

Thanks

Thanks for the suggestion... I'd been there and saw the detailed write up with pics done by HighLine740iL ... Since that was done on a Vanos engine wasn't sure what steps could be dropped on my '98...
