Ditto. My set-up sounds identical to pappentl--right down to the ever so slight kink on the reservoir line. FWIW if you go this route, I believe that the later style engines have a clamp/harness for the coolant hose that runs under the manifold. (I think this harness attaches to the intake manifold ...

M30B35 swap: clutch line bracket?

I'm finishing up a M30B35 swap into a '79 528i---for which I hope to provide a detailed write-up soon---and I'm trying to close out a few lingering items. The one that has me most flummoxed right now is the bracket that's on the clutch line midway between the clutch master cylinder and the clutch sl...

This was exactly the tip that I needed! That resource has pretty clear instructions (and pictures) to describe the orientation of the washers.

Thank you.

Radius arm washers

I have a general question about the washers that are used with the radius arms on the front axle. I recently took my radius arms off to change out the subframe bushings, and I was kind of careless about paying attention to the set-up of the washers that both surround the subframe bushing as well as ...

Lovely. Got the thing with ~3 ft of extensions and 2 u-joints, just like you guys said. Thanks for sharing this approach.

I'm very grateful for this conversation, as I am just about to pull the 4-speed transmission on my '79 528i and this prepped me for what I have in store. When I'm looking down at this particular bolt on my car, though, it really looks like it goes through the bell housing and through the starter mou...

Thanks guys. I swear I went into this with my eyes open--hard to find parts and electrical bugaboos and all. Just wanted to make sure that I wasn't overlooking something here.

Now I'm going to go double-check my bulbs...

Turn Signal Relay options

Just bought my first e12 (1979 528i) and I'm so grateful that this site exists. I think it's going to be invaluable when I get into the bigger work that my car needs, but for now I'm starting with the easy stuff. Namely, I've got a machine-gunning turn signal relay that I need to replace. I can't be...
