    Yes it is , somewhere there is my post about that belt when it snapped I would think in around 250 pounds it can be done nicely but there need to be some time as we'll. and believe or not , I done the exhaust and was going back to the garage to start prepare car for timing belt change when it happened just bad luck. Same like with previous hobby . Started to hang-gliding and on second training day - ankle sprain so badly that I was not able to walk for 4 almost weeks

    Timing belt just snapped

    I would think the belt snapped and that's why rocker broke . the belt was on this car just for too long time, and I think it is my fault. I knew about this belt , but I did one more run just to worm up the engine and make sure that exhaust works like should because of repair. then I wanted to put it into garage and change belt maybe on next day... but belt had different plan than me ...

    Today I did work a bit on it and I took that belt off, and now we can see nasty picture Still want to repair it or maybe just whole engine ? I was not able to disconect mainfold, some nasty rust on the nuts , i will go bit lower for only 4 bigger bolts later on. just bit afraid to open the engine / don't want to know how it looks/

    Frank's e38 in Transporter

    I am 100% sure it was 750i with manual , if you get the transporter DVD , you can get to the special features like their comments and there Jason S. Is telling a lot about this car and that he alway dream about this car before .

    Instrument Cluster Test procedure

    fuel gauge works all the time , tachometer sometimes work ok , sometimes not at all. I tried to check the trouble codes but this is not working too , When I start the car, I can see " dip beam" on the screen and millage . Illumination works fine. and temp gauge I think is not showing anything as well , I didn't check the speedo yet /the car was 7 years SORN/ but I will test it on Sunday

    Instrument Cluster Test procedure

    what if that is not working for me ? all the instrument cluster sometimes does not work at all. is that might be only capacitors ?
