  • E34

    YEA Jason!

    I'm relieved to have been right about this, and having pushed you hard to revisit, and pull off the gearbox and inspect the flywheel/swap it out. It was so much more likely the flywheel than a bent crank given that you didn't spin a bearing to cause hammering on the crank.

    My how that sounds familiar, I'm sitting on an E34 waiting to get that transplant too, with a six speed and 3.91. Have all the parts lined up, just need to assemble the engine from bits in the garage, and install it after making a fresh harness.

    I think it will be an M5/540 killer with lighter steering and handling than the M5, and more character than the 540.... Even torque will be remarkably similar.

        • What happened Jason? All these threads of people painstakingly building their engines and then having to take them out again a couple months later is scaring the crap out of me.

              Dont worry, this was self induced....... the motor ran perfectly when pulled.

              No, not an s65. It will be a v8, but still in the selection process.

              cheers, jason

                                I will report final scale numbers when done. the dual 3" exhaust is SUPER heavy. blah.

                                Patience. I am too busy to even take a minute to snap a few. besides, it has 6 months of dust and grime all over it.

                                Decided to rework all of the gauges, add a heater, rework all the power distribution, ect. A few more wires, coat headers, driveshaft and the final touches..... i actually see light at the end of this VERY long tunnel. Patience, little grasshopper.
