    Me too, I chuckled to myself yesterday as i put away crumbling arm rest pieces that i replaced. I think i have kept every piece removed from my car. Thats why i have 2 alternators that Markos can choose from

    very nice inovermyhead. there's that different washer bottle. you might want to order the 2 drain hoses on either side of the heater intake. i know you can get them from Carl Nelson (bimmerdoc) and i think W+N has them as well.

    Have you got a photo of the drain hoses Scott, not sure where they go. Also when we installed the engine we also did a heater delete ie blanked off the outlet at the back of the engine, its hot enough in Sydney not to need a heater especially with that great big lump up front!!

    Cheers. John

    They attach to the 2 short tubes jutting out into the engine compartment on the firewall on either side of the heater fan cover. They keep fumes from getting into the cabin.

    Beautiful Tom! Can you say which intake manifold and throttle linkages are on your motor? Also, the water pump setup.

    Thanks Markos! I don't know the name of the manifolds but they're the typical three individual manifolds of two ports each. I port matched them to the size of the larger M30-B35 intakes. Stevehose has a great single piece intake - its very nice. I love his Weber set up despite going a few different directions with mine. That said, I owe him many thanks for answering a multitude of Weber and 123 Distributor related questions!

    The throttle linkages I purchased from Pierce Manifolds in Gilroy, CA - US Weber Dealer. I realize now that I included the wrong photo above since it features my old flimsy linkage set up. My new set up is such an improvement - no flex at all. I'll post a couple other photos of the new set up following.

    As for the water pump, I did not cut and weld as many do, I trimmed a little bit off the pump and a little bit off the edge of the carb base and it all fits snugly.

    Next on the list is the 123 Ignition distributor install...
