I spoke to this person. Unfortunately, it is an M30B34. Still, it is a good
opportunity for the right person
Hey skk, I'm still learning. What is an M30b34 - is it that it doesn't have mechanical speedometer hardware? You're in Palo Alto, I work there (when there isn't Covid) Who do you recommend to work on E9s? How about body, rust and paint?

skk was referring to engine parts that the seller also has for sale. An M30b34 is a later, 3.4 liter version of the M30 that came in your E9 originally. Here's a good breakdown on the various M30 "flavors"...

Sorry, I mixed them up. My 71 2800cs has 9:1 compression I think. Still only 168hp - then again my 1.6 liter 72 fiat spider had 92 hp :)

M30B28V[edit]
The M30B28V version produces up to 125 kW (168 bhp) and 235 N⋅m (173 lb⋅ft),[3](p77) depending on the model year, carburettor and country. It has a compression ratio of 9.0:1 and initially used dual Zenith 35/40 INAT carburettors. The bore is 86 mm (3.39 in) and the stroke is 86 mm × 80 mm (3.39 in × 3.15 in).
This version has also been known as the M06 and M68, prior to BMW renaming it the M30B28V.
Applications:
  • 1968-1977 E3 2800 / 2.8L — 125 kW (168 bhp)[12][13]
  • 1968-1971 E9 2800 CS
  • 1971-1971 E3 Bavaria — United States only
  • 1974-1976 E12 528 — 121 kW (162 bhp), dual Zenith INAT carburettors[14](p89)[15][16]
  • 1976-1978 E12 528 — 125 kW (168 bhp), Solex 4A1 carburettor[17](p25)
  • 1977-1979 E23 728 — 125 kW (168 bhp), Solex 4A1 carburettor[18]

would require checking as to what it really is. don't assume that its a euro b34 because they say it is a true euro
