Need A 5 Speed Tranny

I posted pics of my 5 speed tranny a while back and you guys id'd it as an 80-82 320i 5 speed.  The conversion was done before i bought the car.

 

The bearings in the one on my car are shot and getting worse every time we drive it.  The high speed whine and vibration used to only happen at 55 and above but now it's creeped down and happens at 40 to 45 mph.  I took it to my local shop and he confirmed that the bearings inside are shot.

 

So, I need another 5 speed tranny.  Besides taking a shot at one from a boneyard, who else has them for sale?  I did a search on www.car-parts.com and a local place has a bunch listed for $400 each but that seems kind of high for a boneyard tranny.  If anyone has one for sale, let me know.

 

Also, mine has the 4 bolt flange on the tranny and drive shaft, so do the 80-82 320i 5 speeds all have the 4 bolt flange and if not can it be easily swapped with the one from the current tranny?

 

The guibo is new, so besides getting new seals for the 'nused' tranny, what other parts should be replaced while swithing them out?

 

Thanks, never changed a tranny before and would like to try and get it right the first time.
