    Replacing fuel injectors 518i

    I concur with Duncan. Look for something else Paul, think back and try to remember what you disturbed when you started working on the car. Otherwise the problem sounds like timing or similar.

    OMG i fixed the air blower not worked ever

    I just oiled the end bearings of the motor. It is possible to lubricate the bearings utilizing a long thin screwdriver or knitting needle by dipping into the oil and dripping it on to the shaft.

    My boat was crushed on its trailer by a massive cabin cruiser on the trailer next to it. Never was the same after even after extensive repairs.

    Ivor I PMed you

    I needed these because I overhauled my fuse box. I cleaned the fuseholders, replaced any fuses with malformed or distorted end caps and cleaned the rest. To finish I looped silicon O rings around the fuseholders to improve contact pressure. This was all to ensure no resistance in the fuse/ fuseholder circuitry thereby eradicating one of the causes of overheating and fire.

    E28 body panels - boot lid with spoiler

    I have had this item stored for a while but I now need more room and since mine is in excellent condition as well - it's time for someone else to benefit. Very rare in this condition.

    Gunson Brake Bleeding topic

    The OEM pipes which purport to be "preformed " are really nothing like the shape they should be anyway Paul, if it is safe and it works don't worry about it! Kind regards, Ivor

  13. Hello once again John, I'm afraid that I've lost the name & address of the co that supply "proper" ceramic fuses for e28s.

    E28 replacement fuse board

    Does anyone have any knowlege of this pre-paid for development by a company called holygraillabs.com? It looks like a really good idea but the developers' origins and lines of communication seem to be obscured. There's a lot about them on Mye28 but apart from that zilch except the domain name is registered in Iceland.

    E28 clutch master cylinder.

    Still wanted for my e28, 21521156002 .
  20. I might just do that Mick. If you remember I had a few spare doors one of which donated a rubber boot, awkward job to do but very satisfying and pleasing. Kind regards, Ivor
  21. I didn't know you were in partnership with Ivo Mick. Congratulations it will be great to have a fellow Forum member in such a position of influence. Kind regards,

    518i Fuel pump stopped buzzing engine not starting.

    Have you taken out the fuses , cleaned them and the fuseboard fuse connectors, fuse no 1 appears to be the feed.
  23. Hi Mick, I received a pair last week, the quality is excellent. Something we are getting used to from Ivo. Kind regards, Ivor

    518i Fuel pump stopped buzzing engine not starting.

    Paul, That is something I was going to suggest earlier. Make sure that you observe polarity to the pump ( Body earth or negative ( - ) will be brown, the positive ( + ) should be green with violet stripe. That is directly the opposite of your previous theory. All browns are negative (chassis). Kind regards, Ivor
