As a mechanic BMW stands for "Bring My Wallet" :lol:
Agricultural is a term I like to use to explain such principles of design and operation,glad it stirred some memories cjj .
And what BMW puts the filter in the sump ? Yet to strike that model yet... just as well by the sound of it.
And I was told HD stands for "Hundred Dollars" thats a lie,$1000's more like it !

Much polishing later,and now using it for daily transport to work it's just hooking me into it even more.

BMW K series, the "Flying Brick" models. Mine, the K75 is a 3 cylinder inline with the cylinders lying horizontally. Here's a picture of the bottom of the engine with the cover off and the REQUIRED filter wrench. There's just no way to get 'em off without the wrench...
