CR Transmission swap

I have started on the restoration of my '75 2002, European version, 4 speed.

I live in El Salvador, so other Euro BMW have found their way here.

On Monday I am going to visit the 'only' BMW recycler in town.

Supposedly, he has a 5 speed, dogleg, but as everything else here, very 'iffy'.

What should I be looking for? Also differential-wise, it would be nice to find a locking unit. Again, which unit?

Thank you.

Regards, Alberto

3.45 is a nice match for the CR. Thats what I have in my M2 4k at 80mph and it loves it there

look for a RED steering gear box

"........" limited slip rear diff - both wheels

rotate same direction

" ......" larger gas tank - it will stick up a little

higher inside the trunk - floor boards will not be even
