    Sadly the past weekend I had to remove the engine from the E23 735i as it was smoking badly.

    As you may know, I did the "top overhaul" a couple of months ago and I thought that would solve everything. But no... plugs were black and sooty and car wont idle. Upon removing the intake manifold, found engine oil was literally "flowing" inside it... so off came the engine... time for new piston rings...

    Here are some pictures from last weekend :

    Giving it some cleaning before removing and dismantling everything :
