It’s far too nice to part out. I would like to have a project like this but I’m on the wrong side of the pond.
Sorry to go off thread, but if Jim sees this, why did you say this? “If you repair the transmission it will happen again in another 46K miles.“
Does that mean that the new replacement output shaft is still of poor quality?
I assumed that if/when mine goes I would replace the shaft and clutch (with the modified disc) and everything would be fine from then on. Why aren’t the replacement shafts made from better material as BMW must be aware of the failed ones.
If the answer is something to do with being ‘off centre’ then I will be truly stumped as I couldn’t follow that discussion years ago and it boiled my brain!
