  • Having watched several of your videos I have to compliment you on your thoroughness. Most home mechanics would take lots of shortcuts that you don’t. I would have no problem buying a car from you. You use the right parts and know BMW’s and their idiosyncrasies.

  • Another greaaaaaat video! Many thanks for sharing Daparto (I didn't know it), I have found many special items I couldn't find here in Belgium (I mean on the websites where I usually order my parts). By the way, you're not German? Silly question maybe, but then why translating the web page into English? Cheers mate, I can't wait till the 'coooooming up' of the next episode.

  • Didn't it want to start immediately because the fuel lines were empty? Would switching the ignition a few times before firing the engine (to fill the fuel lines and build the pressure) help?

  • If there's anything to learn from this is that you should never buy a V12, there's NO room to do anything.

  • I know the "I can edit this out and make it seem like I know what I'm doing" is a joke, but the fact you show it anyway does three things: you can make a joke about the silliness of it and we all laugh about it, you show the good the bad and the ugly about these kinds of projects, and it shows that sometimes (or oftentimes) the simplest possible solution is the solution. Great video!

  • Great vid, I haven't started my e39 m5 for over a year now, any suggestions?, I was thinking of cranking the engine with the starter motor with the fuel pump fuse out or would using fogging oil be better? I stored em away with fresh oil and plugs back in december 2019, TIA

  • Be careful with that vacuum cleaner, air molecules zipping at high speed create a shitload of static electricity. Needless to say that a tank full of gasoline vapours with an opening pointed at your face, exploding due to an accidental discharge isn't ideal.

I would love to hear more about that! Keep it up, Peter from Hungary

As someone who has been in the motor trade for almost 20 years, hats off to you for your knowledge, attention to detail and caring attitude towards vehicle maintenance. You have just gained a new subscriber.

  • Using a vacuum to suck up gasoline is a really easy way to cause an explosion.

    • @M539 Restorations Oh dear god, this isn't even close to a truly scientific test. These two hill billies couldn't find their own ass with a mirror and a GPS. It just takes the correct fuel/air mixture and a spark and you'll be releasing a ridiculous amount of energy. By you showing this to amateur mechanics who don't know better, you might be responsible for someone's death.

    • @M539 Restorations No! Please don't let people think this is okay. A shop vacuum is an ignition source. Boaters know this as bilge fumes can explode when you use a vacuum to clean your boat.

  • The vacuum lines to the fule pressure regulators are connected in the wrong way. They need to be swapped, line from no.1 goes to no.2 and vice versa. Also, can you please elaborate on the spark plugs? The owner manual specifies Bosch F 8 LCR, the NGK ZR5F is the corresponding equivalent. You must be the only guy not using the NGK, and I can not see why.

    • @M539 Restorations Sorry, I missed the last two or three minutes. Glad you noticed it. Well, I have been in the forums for over 10 years, and I own my 750i just as long. This is the first time someone says the ZR5F are wrong. Never read about the ones you have shown in the video. Do you mean the E31 forum or the 7er-Forum?

      Oliver KossatzOliver Kossatz3 dagar sedan
