Need help I D my 5 speed

Recommended Posts

I recently aquired this tranny and would like to replace the seals but I could'nt figure it out what 5 speed I have. It has a # stamp on top of the bell housing next to starter bellow and the  number is 323741/6. I tried google if its a getrag 240 or ?? but no luck. The clutch slave is the same location where the 4 speed tranny (242) I have and the reverse light sensor location is in the back, bottom shift fork. Thanks in advance.

FYI the 5 speed close ratio boxes have three piece cases--the 90mm section (with the 5th gegar) interposed between the main case and the output end piece.  E21s with overdrive 5 speeds also have the three piece case from 80 and 81 and a two piece (main housing and end piece) case in 82 and 83.  This same case was used on the 84/85 E30 318i cars, but they don't have a takeoff for the mechanical speedometer.  

 

That's all I know... ;-)

The M10 uses the same transmission bolt pattern as the M30, S14, and S38.

 

Getrag 245
+E21 320i's from 1977-09/1982.
-most commonly supported.

Getrag 240

+E30 318 from 1984-1985

Getrag 265

-E30M3

-E28/E24 (not sure which individual models were excluded).

-larger and heavier, requires extensive trans-tunnel modification.

After a minute of searching, I found this helpful thread.

Since we're ID'ing transmissions I'd like to jump in. Here's one I just got my hands on. Is this the right one?

We inherited 2 transmissions both were supposed to be 5 speeds. The one in the pic shifts like a 5 speed, of course this is just sitting as pictured and shifting through the gears including reverse.
