Hi guys,
Ive purchased the gkd kit for my m42 e30,i have most of my parts now but theres a couple of things im unsure of,
First of all i need to swap over my pulleys to the later m44 type,i have them but have noticed the m44 has one belt running everything including power steering pump,on m42 it has a seperate belt further forward which means when i put the m44 power steering pulley on my pump it wont be in line with the rest of the drive belt,so do i need to swap all the pump or use an offset puller like on the m50 engine.
Second, the m42 doesnt have a belt spring type tensioner,is this added or just manually tension it on the altenator adjustment.
Much appreciated any help.
