1990 735I Timing

Greetings...I just pulled the head of my 1990 735I....burnt valve.

Now, I'm having new valves seated....but, when I stick it back together....how the heck to I get the timing right? I've done head work on old GM motors....BMW is new to me. Where are the timing marks? Any advice or anyone have any pics?


PM me or post in the forum.

Thanks much!

Best bet is to pick up a bentley so that you have pictures of how to line it up and which marks to use.
