    Ahhh, you're breaking my heart>

    MAN that looks sweet. When I first saw your red valve cover, I questioned how that would look, but it looks AWESOME in the car. Get some red plug wires to go with it. Some day I will be back in the fold.

    is that fully assembled -- cams?

    I keep hearing about "generous coating of assembly lube..." on most engine building TV shows..is it there in the cam journals and lobes?

    hook

    I removed mine years ago and forgot where I stuck it. I think the one in the pic is what my mechanic had, probably for another type of BMW engine. Good eye, I will ask him where he go it.

    i mean there is supposed to be lube..

    assembling it dry is a no no.. but oh well it was running today so any damage is already done..

    Maybe it is fine, but I would have expected to see some signs of lube on a new motor.....

    oh I see what pic you were referring to now

    Yes this shot was for the cameraman. A bimmer rag is doing a story on t eh rebuilt process and he wanted to show how little wear there was on the camshalfs. Yes they were completley convered in cam lube after the pic was taken. This German machanic (accent and all) has rebuilt over 13 S38s since 2001 and oldest one at at 100k on its clock. I trust him completely
