'88 750il ... one bank won't run (archive)

I have an 88 750IL that has been in the shop for the past 3 months. The car will starts and runs fine from cold... but after running for a while the left bank begins to run very rich. The mechanic has given up. He has replaced the oxygen sensors. Then he replaced other parts in the car with parts from a 750 that runs fine (including the engine control units). Still the left bank of the engine runs rich (seeming not to run at all). He synchonized the throttles also (evidently doing this on a 750 is a unique process).

So after 3 months in the shop, I have the car back with no clue how to get it fixed.
