Rode my motorcycle 10 hours and 630 miles to Michigan to help my friend diagnose an ‘83 BMW 533i he picked up last weekend.
Got there, pulled the fuel hose off the regulator, jumped the fuel pump to run, and got massive spitting of fuel out the side of the barb at a clogged filter. Replaced filter, she fired right up.
Took 20 minutes to get it running. Also replaced fan clutch and a few other odds and ends but it is roadworthy now. Pulls surprisingly hard for a 34 year old German sedan. And she’s a beaut.
