i just bought a 5speed box and upon getting it home i have noticed that it has an output flange with three holes, whereas my old fourspeed had the 4 bolt output flange... is it possible to swap the one from my 4-speed into the 5-speed box so it mates with my drive shaft guibo??

any help would be great

Two options: Use a four-bolt flange from an '80 5spd, or use the front portion of the 320i driveshaft (3-bolt). The driveshaft has to be shortened anyway, so that's a popular way to go since the four-bolt flanges are not very easy to find.

... shaft. That's what I did in Sydney last year and it worked fine. Old E21 drive shafts are cheap and plentiful.

Just be doubly careful re shortening measurements.
