Default Re: DIY: Vanos hub + bolts

Hi guys,
Did the vanos overhaul last week (seals, disc, cam bolts, solenoid pack).
Passed the test after doing the work and have done about 100 miles since.
Thought I'd re do vanos test and it failed. Then I did it again and it passed ...

Here are the images :

1) failed



2) passed



Any ideas?? (Oil temp was fine to run the test. )

Like it says, if it fails more than 50% of the time, there is a problem. You need to run int more than twice for a statistically significant result. If there's a problem, it's likely a damaged seal.

As I read in your previous post, you are using an aftermarket bridge tool. This could be the reason for your timing problems. You should have used the original BMW bridge tool.

From Beisan: "Warning: Use only Genuine BMW alignment bridge. All available aftermarket bridges are not precise and will cause wrong timing and possibly bent valves."

That is correct. If you used an aftermarket bridge it will be wrong every time
