Actually I was waiting for friend of mine last evening , had nothing to do for 2 hours so I grabbed intake and started playing with it.
I was missing injector insulators , they came in couple days ago. Green low impedance injectors were installed . I have to make 4 fuel rail mounts, old ones had to be removed. So slowly going forward. Looks like Cable throttle system will be the easiest way to go.

Couple weeks ago placed an order for lower and 25% stiffer front suspension springs . It will take couple more to have them made.

Today finally BMW drive shaft yoke was dropped off I will have it all done next week . Had to spin 3 inserts to adapt smaller bolt to larger holes.

I've always liked the stacked injection systems. And to be completely honest with you I am very jealous of this project.

You will dyno tune it right? My M119 already has megasquirt but I havent dyno tuned it, it is completely stock besides the ignition system, I'm very interested to see the gains from the ITBs

Why is that little orange car always staring at those throttle bodies. What does that grin on its face mean? Keep an eye on that one, I don't trust it.

Front spring installation is officially done. Fenders will require to get little notches for the rubber . I will let them saddle in then radiator and all the engine accessories need to be install . Then I'll begin on the wide body. Tires are sticking out about 2 inches which gives me almost perfect guide lines for a fenders.

On Saturday I took care of the problematic timing issues with m119 engines . Replace timing chain guides . It went so smooth that I started test fitting throttle bodys and power steering pump  photo IMG_20170304_135926_zpsk8scc5k2.jpg Those are the issues that those engine have New cam cover were installed for better looks and power steering mount clearance .

Engine needs to be lower about an 1 inch . Throttle bodys almost touch the hood and drive shaft needs that extra one to clear the tunnel.

I made a quick cut and flared the lip on the fenders for tire clearance.  photo IMG_20170304_162244_zpscsfnugwy.jpg

Just found this thread, love it. I'm working on a m119 powered w111 220b. Just to let you know, the r129 and w124 m119 have a front sump two peice pan that is almost the identical shape as the original front sump m117 two peice that was in w108 cars. Also, was the Volvo flywheel the correct centerbore and bolt pattern?

Volvo used 60-2 , that is on a flywheel . This wheel came from megasquirt suppler. wheel pattern is 36-1 I just cut out the inside to make it fit on to the stock m117 engine crack pulley .

I meant the bolt pattern to attach the flywheel to the crank. I know the m119 pattern, 40mm radius with one on 38mm, 55mm Centerbore. What was the Volvo?

I have some updates. Let's consider that drive train is all bolted on together . When I put the tranny in gear and turn the crank pulley with long bar wheels are turning , whats even better in the correct direction . Drive shaft is connected and all bolted on . Had an issue with center bearing not aligning up with rubber damper on bmw drive shaft set up . After remaking engine mount got it perfectly straight. While trying to achieve that engine had to be move much closer towards driver side. Very soft factory engine mounts were replaced with double polyurethane set up . Practically was a bolt on application .

 photo KIMG0155_zpskhld2rzu.jpg  photo KIMG0157_zpscu9zmntv.jpg

New heavier engine mounts. Pure steel .

 photo KIMG0153_zps3z150ftl.jpg  photo KIMG0154_zpsmcaeavat.jpg

And the beauty sitting on the blocks . Tomorrow I will be finishing tranny cross member .

I want to be able to move the pig on its own power before flighing out to Europe on 19th this month

Gas tank was removed yesterday . Monday Acme radiators is picking it up for acid bath . It's not horrible but defiantly not usable in current condition .

Trans cross member is compete and installed .

Played today with clutch connection a little . I will needed to have made a custom flex line between master and line on the tranny

Today I got clutch line made up, installed and tested . Officially we got a working clutch , it is very foot friendly. Feels just like my stock s60r clutch. I think I have little to much free play at master push rod . Will get that adjusted later . Now working on fuel pumps , 93 500sel set up will need one bracket to be modified . Looks very simple . Fuel lines to rail will need to be made , This should be done by the end of the week . pics tomorrow
