280C Vacuum Check Valve
Hello all. Just figured I would post the following info on finding a brake booster vacuum check valve for a 280C. The dealer here wanted $74 because I had to buy all the hose with it and would not sell it separately. So, after some searching, I found one that works from www.bavauto.com. Including shipping, it cost me almost $20, but at least it's the same size as the one I am replacing and it's a lot better than the dealer price.
I typed in for a 1973 BMW 2002 and it gave me the part # 34 33 1 151 532
I've enclosed a pic of the old one vs. the new one, sorry if it's a bit blurry.
