That´s the nicest job of all! Inserted the shiftig arm with new support brackets and did some small installations like mounting the starter.....!

There is one problem. I´ve been testing the universal joint on the transmission. There is very low space between the universal joint (Hardy?!) an the srews arround :nah
Maybe it is the wrong universal joint?!?

I see 2 things.
1. That hardydisc is a Meyle product. I will never ever use a Meyle product again. It is a inferior brand, and their rubber products are not that durable. I would order one at BMW. Little mounts on the shiftplate are mounted correct, as far as I can see. That disc looks a bit big indeed.
2. The bolts used on the vibration damper, are the new? Or rezinced? I used ones that are re zincplated, but they came off. So I ordered new ones at BMW. They have to be 10.9, not 8.8. Just make sure to have the 10.9 ones and use sufficient locktite.

By the way, don't you have powersteering?? I see that the pully is not on there, that is why I am asking.
It's the man next door!

I got the same from WN and first found the next drive... had to take it all apart again and it rubbed the shifter rod, it has been leaking oil ever since, even after repkacing the seal grrrrr. Thanks Meyle and Walloth.

I forgot to check my additional air slide valve. So i dissambled it again. It was very dirty inside. So i cleaned and oiled it. After i built it together i did a test with boiling water. It didn´t move any millimeter! :protest

I can´t get a new one so i am now searching a secondhand one! :nah :wtf

wire goes on spade connector with red circle (marked D+), spade connector with green circle is for the capacitor (marked +), very nice work

see my left alternator/generator/dynamo:
