Machine shops can resurface a flywheel for ~$70.
Sway is like a race horse; if you push it sometimes, it's ok, but if you are hard on it all the time, then it's going to break its ankle and then you will have to shoot it.

Dual mass isn't machinable. And those who do, have to disassemble it.

So things Are mostly together. I have a few questions and hope someone here can help while I go off and google.

First, What is the part number for this? It's a vacuum line and this bit is a 90 degree elbow right in front of that heater core solenoid thingy.


Otherwise, I've come to a complete stop on wiring. I have the wiring harness somewhere but I don't think the regular auto to manual wiring will work for me. I no longer have the blue DME for the automatic so there's just this one connector dangling. My master cylinder does not have a plug in it. Instead, I seem to have two switches. One on top and one on the bottom. What? Why? What do I do?

Ok so I think I figured out the wiring. The switch that gets hit on the end of the clutch stroke is the one that goes to the cruise control. So I don't think I need to do anything. The top switch (no connectors on the master itself) goes to the ECU.

The brown wire on the switch (brown purple IIRC) goes to a grounding block taped up under the steering column. The power (Purple yellow) I just spliced in with the same colored wire that feeds the brake light switch.

The DME box has two connectors that come from the cabin. One blue one for the automatic trans ECU and a black one that goes to the DME. BMW is nice enough to make that connector come apart and really easy for you to just pull pins (I found this out too late though). So I found the missing pin in the auto connector and put in the pin that I pulled from the donor manual body harness.

I'm so totally not sure if I need to do anything with that one auto connector. I hope this will at least get the car running so I can scan codes. The only problem is that the battery is locked in the trunk of the 1/4 cut in my back yard. Anyone know if there's an emergency trunk release?

I got into the trunk through the tail light and pulled the release cord. w00t.

The car started! Runs great! I just lost the radiator drain plug and pelican swears the gas pedal lever is NLA.

Home stretch!
