Not only timing chain guide parts cover the oil pump pickup, but looks like some oil sludge also? Was there any oil sludge in the oil pan,head or other parts of the engine?

I have to give you credit, not sure what your background is but that's one hell of a project. I have done many over the years but all American cars. Not sure I would dive into a project like this with a BMW. Other then the fact I don't have the garage to do this kind of thing anymore. lol

There was sludge in the oil pan, some in the head. I am leaning towards lack of oil changes and maintenance in general.

I'm a mechanical engineer, but I do this stuff as a hobby. Well it started as a hobby that escalated. Getting into something like this isn't as ad as it seems. I was a little overwhelmed at first, but I took it step by step and I label everything and all bolts get put into labelled zip lock bags. This makes things a lot easier during the assembly stage.

And here is a pic where I ended last night with the BMW



Hopefully I can get it fired up today.

Last night I was able to crank the engine over, everything seems good. I put some cheap oil in it along with a filter (just want to flush it out). Now when I tried to start the engine it wouldn't fire, no fuel at the pump. After cranking a few times I removed the high pressure line and there was no fuel.

So my theory: I did not replace the injectors on the new engine with the old ones. (are they coded to the ECU?). Tonight I will be replacing the injectors with the old ones. I am also getting a a scanner from a friend so that I can clear some of the faults.

That was my field at one time as well, I was a mechanical designer for 15 years then moved on into the IT world for 25 years. I have done many builds when it comes to muscle cars, never dove into this end of the pool. Good luck with the engine swap.

Thanks for the kind words.

Got the car fired up last night, still have a lot of things to figure out and finish but it was a relief to hear the engine run. It is not running like I would like it to, but injector index numbers are not input into the ecu, still no intake or cooling. Hopefully in the next few days I can wrap this up and get a buddy to stop by and figure out all the coding.
