Slogging away!

Picked up a BW dual pump setup from a forum member.
Quite fiddly to install. You have to rotate the second pump fuel level sensor while the pump is installed otherwise it does not fit quite right. Good write up here



Fuel tank in with straps powder coated. Looked like, well, almost 20 years of road exposure. Tough to get all the hoses & vents installed and clamped properly. Also added new filler hose & clamps.



New bearings & bushings getting installed. I found that an old wheel bearing is perfect for pushing the bearing in that last quarter inch or so.





Amazing what some sand blasting and powder coat does to old parts. Here is the hand brake cable guides



Next up: installing rear sub frame & suspension.

Love it when the UPS truck brings boxes from Bimmerworld. Picked these up on sale last week.



And inside was this


Containing a pair of these



Epic sport cams. They should match up well with the superscript headers & M50 manifold. Just need injectors & a tune. Yippee!

This is turning into a pretty epic rebuild, I hope I get to see this thing back together in person someday!

Really hoping to be done by M Day at Griots. If I recall, that is usually in Sept. I'll be there -- if done! Do you attend? You're local I believe.
