Happy Friday! We hope you enjoyed a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends, food and good cheer! We are so thankful for our customers! It’s been another busy week, we wish we could blog everything that we do, unfortunately there just isn’t enough time!
Here’s a look at a 1986 BMW 325es that has been in the shop this week for a timing belt, water pump, oil seals and gaskets. It also got new fuel hoses and engine mounts. We refreshed the cooling system, and put proper BMW coolant in it. This is basically what any older BMW 3-series needs if it has not recently had it. If you notice, most everything we’re replacing is made of rubber, which has a 5-7 year lifespan in most cases.
A look at some of the tools and parts for the job:
And now for a long-awaited update on the 1986 BMW 325 swap project! Finally!
It’s time to put the radiator in:
One high performance fan coming right up!
Measuring for perfect placement on the radiator:
Marking where to drill the holes to attach the fan to the radiator:
A portion of the frame had to be removed to allow for clearance of the fan. Self-etching primer was applied to prevent rust where the metal was cut.
Radiator and fan are installed! Lookin’ good!
