Good read for M57 and M67 owners

Recommended Posts

""The engine mount principle used on the M57 and M67 engines is basically the same as from the M51TÜ. The damping

charac teristics of the hydraulic mount are set softer or harder by means of a vacuum. In this way, the vibration transmitted from the engine to the body can be influenced specifically.""

Only looking at this today. Scratching the head.

Now I know.

Love that pdf. Downloaded.

Thanks for that.

Some great images.

Always wondered was the 4.0 v8 Diesel any good.

I know it was only LHD and e38 only.

Imagine one in an e39.

Iirc there is an e28 with a 740d lump :D

It's a pitty that this one is cut short and I never could find a full document.

Is there much more to that document clavurion?

I think your linky is wrong as it just sends me to a page referring to just engine mount control, I wish I had remembered where I got to that PDF document as iirc there was a few more to choose from.

If you check at the index of that document you see that there are several chapters missing. I must have found that same site about a year ago, plenty of other BMW training material. Can't remember the link because I downloaded them all to my hard drive as soon as I found it.

Whilst looking for vacuum specs for my M57 engine I came across this little PDF that has a few good bits of info including vacuum specs that show it should read about 0.8-0.9 bar of vacuum iirc.

Thanks for posting this - downloaded and printed!

Just had a quick look-see. Brilliant. Getting any decent info on the diesel is quite novel. Well done Burnzy.

Previously posted but not pinned, so good work Burnzy

 

Pity I don't understand most of it :)

If only someone could find the next part - I've tried several times, but no joy.
