Default Oil filter housing gasket question

Okay. So I'm in the middle of replacing all my belt tensioners, along with p/s reservoir all lines, and the ofhg.

I know the two bolts on top of the p/s pump need to be removed to be able to get the oil filter housing off the block. First question. Are these the only 2 bolts holding the p/s pump on? Will I need to remove the pulley on the pump to access them?

And... Does anyone have the torque specs on the 6 oil filter housing bolts. (I'm buying new bolts that have crush washers) I assume start in the middle and working my way out would be the correct order?

Does anyone also have the torque specs for the 2 p/s pump bolts that I will need to remove.


Happy motoring

Power steering pump has 3 bolts. 2 up top on the oil filter housing and one below on the oil pan. I don't remember the torque specs off the top of my head but from the size of bolt I'd guess 18ft-lbs. I'll check my Bentley tonight of no one else beats me to it. You do not need new bolts for any of it.

I see that BavAuto has OFHG made from Dupont Viton. I've only seen it at BavAuto. Anyone use one of them? It's more $$$ but still under $20.

Thank you for the reply.


I did also notice this mystery connector under the pcv valve.

Anyone have any idea what it is? Aux power connector or something?

Nope. No check engine light. And it won't reach anything. I noticed it when I did my pcv valve.

I have no idea what it's for.

I did some investigating.

Found a cut off pigtail from a crank sensor or cam sensor. It was zip tied to the block with some other wires. So I pulled them off the clip that secured it. (Now I need to replace that clip that was holding the wires in place

There was a changeover in crank sensors at some point. One had two pigtails on it and one only had one. I can't remember the difference right now.

You might have had one style of crank sensor and the other style one was put in. There's an adapter harness that BMW sells to covert over the early cars, I think.

Search around using that as a starting point, you should be able to find out something.

For the crank sensor wiring, here's the Service Bulletin. explains what they do/did.

And a link to a thread about the whole engine wiring harness. Got me thru my engine swap.
