    Default Parts list for Intake manifold gasket change for M60

    Now that it is cold I need to get this done. I have been told that while I am in there I should do the PVC plate and Throttle body gasket. I see several members are familar with the job so if someone could give me a parts list it would make my life easier.

    I'll be using the directions on E38.org. Is that the best write up on the job?

    the 4 intake port gaskets, tb gasket, pcv plate/cyclonic valve and it's gasket, may as well get a set of plugs as you are almost down to them (bkr6ek/2288 ngk, f7ldcr/fr7ldc+(they changed the #)/7402 bosch super) the water pump is a little easyer while the intake is off, you can do the o-rings on the back of the tubes, and the 4 knock sensors are only possible with the intake off, they will probably have cracks in them but that doesn't mean they are bad, it's a crap shoot when one will die and then you need to pull the intake, they are testable but you need a graphing meter, and a hammer, i've noticed new ones are more sensitive

    That is a very informative post. great job. Makes me almost want to spring for a 540 just so I can work on it.

    BTW, whats involved on replacing the M50 knock sensors. I think it involves removing the oil pan.
    Thanks,

    no need to even think of the oil pan, if god is smiling you may stand a chance of doing them without pulling the intake, i just pull the intake as it's faster, 2 sensors with a 13mm on each and about a 4" pigtail plug

    This was my parts list, I meant to post it. I recommend autohausaz.com as they carry non-oem versions of the gaskets that are 1/3 the price.

    13541747475 - ASC only O ring
    11617501562 - PCV plate
    11611437694 - cap
    11611747085 - cap
    11611729727 - front manifold gasket
    11611729728 - rear manifold gasket
    11151736140 - O ring
    11611433328 x 4 - cylindar head gaskets
    11611736648 x 10 - bushings

    Also plan on picking up some hex bolts to replace the crummy torx ones that you will be stripping. This is from memory but I believe I used:

    12 6mmx25mm hex
    3 6mm x 20mm hex

    I also bought the O-rings for the coolant pipes and the valley pan but did not end up getting that far. If you want them you can have them cheap from me.

    While I did this I also replaced the galley cover, as they tend to leak too. It's all apart, and you are right in there looking at it.

    I also replaced the heater hoses and fuel lines at the same time, but you could do that on a different weekend !

    Winfred is spot on in terms of the water pipes and o-rings. I replaced that aluminium breather pipe that runs to the PCV plate as well. It was cheap and I figured what the heck.

    If you do the water pump, might as well throw new belts on too since they are coming off and they are easy to replace.

    It's a slippery slope on this one.

    Finally, while all this was apart, I noticed the two short power steering hoses under the brake booster were leaking, so, out those came. That, by far, was one of the hardest jobs I have done to date on the M60. A real PIA !!

    Thanks guys. This helps a lot. The valve cover gaskets have been replaced with the plugs so I am not touching them. My father is bought the car from me and I told him I will do it as a favor for him. If it was mine I'd probably do more but he is just thrilled this work is on me. I may look into the knock sensors if they do not cost too much. Anyone have cost info/supplier and how hard they are to do when in there?

    So far I have paid for and installed a new radiator and transmission filter/fluid change. Next week it looks like it may be getting the thrust arms with 750 bushings I bought. Once I am finished it should be good for a while for him.

    While I had the intake manifold off, I noticed my injectors were really crusty, so I sent them off to be refurbed and recalibrated.
    Don't forget to change all the rubber; one littel hose that connects fromteh PCV plate to the fuel pressure regulator, and another one that runs from under the throttle body. That one was so brittle it shattered.
