    that's how i know they don't have any right now. Don checked for one for my euro b34 he is building. they should have some more in a month or so (i believe). i checked some other places - ecs tuning has a reasonable price ... you just don't know if they really have any or when they will get them. other people may have them, but they charge a whole lot more for them.

    exactly why i was recommending to talk to Don ... Scott could hopefully buy a refurbed head from Don - then you know you would be buying a good piece of kit.

    I could supply a cyl head. Could do either used with a pressure test or complete with valve job. Are you running carbs (mech fuel pump) or injection (electric fuel pump)? It is best to use a post 1981 casting but those are tough to find with mech fuel pump fitting. I also have a spanish cast updated head available.

    You can email me at 324tdi@gmail.com, please be patient for reply as I am not online all the time.

    If your current head is pre 1981 casting I would not advise welding it unless you have to keep the car completely original.

    Thanks

    Thanks all. Don is taking care of me. I think I am set now on the cylinder head. I love this group.

    If not, I have spare good heads from either 3.0CS I parted out and a 635csi.

    For the archives- a known good, refurbished and guaranteed POST 1982 head is valued fairly at 750.00 to the group.
    That's valve job, surfacing, valve seals, pressure testing, guides.
    Ready to go.

    Scott- you really need to talk to Steve Hose about a cam.
    Quickly!

    I wouldn't port - port matching only.

    VAC Motorsports in Philly shows a Schrick 282/282 cam which appears to be in stock. I know the description doesn't exactly match Steve's invoice, but they show two 284 degree cams for fuel injected cars, and this cam for a car with carbs.

    the difference in the cam has to do with the lobe for the mechanical fuel pump. if you have a head that doesn't have the hole ... then you have no need for that cam because you are already using an electric pump

    Remember-early cams are forked for distributor and later are motronic with pin.

    W&N has a shipping special today. Code bmw2017
    You want a Schrick cam for your car.
    Your head will be done next week.
    Sadly I can't find a fuel pump for you. I may have thrown them away
