  1. Newbie, fancying a V12

    Hi My wife and I have retired, and we recently bought a house in Spain. So now is the time to indulge in a V12. My options .... a 6.0 Jaguar XJ12/Daimler Double Six (made during the Ford period), or a 1990's Mercedes CL (some people say they are ugly, but I like them). Then I remembered the...

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi All, Hoping someone can help me out here. Currently working on a V12 which has been off the road for a few years. Started the car up after a change of new fuel pumps and it turned over and ran ok. It had been started a few times before but was not running on both banks. Following the new...
  5. V12 HT leads

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I'm trying to sort out any causes for slight misfire on my '91 850, so thought I'd try new set HT leads. I've already replaced distributor caps and rotors and plugs. Also have cleaned up DK motors. There's a choice of aftermarket sets at around £100 or an extra-expensive set from BMW at over...
  6. 1992 E31 850 - V12 replacement

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi Guys, This is going to more of an info and project feed. Now we finally have the engine out, I can say more.

  7. Throttle problems V12

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Just developed problem with my '91 850 which makes it just about un-driveable.

  8. E31 850, V12 Spark Plugs??

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I'm trying to find a definitive answer to what the correct spark plugs are for the m70 V12. As I understand it, the original Bosch F8LCR plugs are discontinued or at least very hard to get hold of. I have personally tried some Super 4's which did not work and I understand that you need a plug...

    BMW Engine Conversions
    I have a 1996 318i with the 1.9L and automatic transmission. I also happen to have a complete drivetrain from a 1989 750iL. The idea is to swap the M70 v12 into the e36.
