Something about lowering the water...

I was ready to pull the oil/water pump when I thought of this...



Then I could get to and see what I needed to.

Yep! *hitchs thumbs in overalls*

All done, assembled, torqued down and filled with Lucus oil treatment and oil.

I used many combinations of these to get that o-ring in.

I have oil pressure and no leaks noted to date, so it looks like it worked.

Slight hijack: (Sorry, Gwen)

I used white board to make these for my bags. Much easier to keep stuff in the bags when you're on the road:




Or go for broke and build your own custom cargo nets:

I may have very well messed up.


I suspect I have an oil pressure problem.

These are the symptoms:
1. If I accelerate quickly, the oil light comes on briefly, then goes out.
2. If it's one the sidestand at idle, the light comes on, but if I rev the engine, the light goes off.

These are very consistant.

What's worse is between the time the light goes off at idle and the time it comes back on, the valve clatter increases. As soon as I rev the engine and the light goes off, the vavle clatter stops.


Shit!

So, what the heck!
I'm in this deep ........ again.

And I know it's leaking and needs replacing AND I know I'll have better luck seating the o-ring.

Off goes the pump.








Here's the money shot!

Note the bowed o-ring.



After the oil pump was out of the way and I had the RIGHT BMW o-ring, it popped right in pretty as you please. .


While I was there I replaced the oil pressure plug.





Do you know that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when you strip the threads on an engine block?

Well, when that crush washer 'crushed' it felt just like that. *shiver*

My son Space Cowboy helped me.







It looks like the next little project is the rear main seal











A little while later, while putting it back together...




A big wet kiss on the lips to the first person to post what's wrong with this pic?







Back to the garage...*stomps back outside grumbling to self*

The wires go behind the pump.

I scored this new toy this week for $125 on CL. (Retail $375)

That can't right whatever it is.
