I am surprised that you can replace the cylinder head and you cannot see the starter.! Probably some one stole it while you weren't watching.!!!!!
If you step out of the driver side door (American version) We drive in the left side of the car (viewed from the rear), then walk to the nearest point of the hood and right inder the intake mannifold is that difficult to reach boy. Connect the two poles with an screwdriver (extending poles) and if you hear a motor running you are ok. Then connect the top connector to the small side connector to activate the bendix. Sometimes there is carbon built up in the inner plate and you do not get a good contact. If any problems, remove that baby and start checking it. I just rebuilt mine two months ago.
Good luck!

Engine would not start..

After putting a new cilinderhead in mine BMW 735i '88.
The car wouldn't start anymore.
Not even a sound from the starter engine.
Battery is fine and connections etc.

I want to check the cables (connectors) to the starter engine.
But, i can not find the starter engine with the wires to it.

Is there anyone who can tell me where this is exact located?
Maybe with a picture or drawing.

Thanks a lot!
