I currently own a 1984 318i 5-speed, which i purchased from another owner. the original owner's son drove the car without any oil in it so the engine seized up. i purchased a new engine and am currently attempting to install it in place of the old.
i believe everything is connected as it should but there were a few parts missing off of the original so im not sure what exactly im going to need.
Does anyone know of any sites that provide detailed images of the engine and components. i know i need a few hoses, an air intake box, and a few other items. mostly any hoses and there connections along with the proper wiring diagram for the engine harness. (i think everythings connected but i could be wrong)
unfortunately i'm not too familiar with the part names so i cant be much of help when it comes to just listing the parts i need, but if i could get an image list or something along those lines to where i could compare and contrast my car with another it would make things a lot easier. i know im going to have to go to a junk yard to get what i need but not having a car to get around in makes finding junk yards and getting the right parts a lot harder.
this has been a semi nightmare and a dream come true. i love this car but its been so hard finding exactly what i need without knowing the part names and having no real mechanic to help. So if anyone has any information, or any miscellaneous details they wish to add, it would be appreciated
