'72 shifter linkage

My linkage doesn't match the diagram shown in the linkage rebuild FAQ. My transmission was replaced two years ago (by the previous owner). I think the previous owner used a shifter that came with the new transmission.

The 10 inch horizontal selector rod goes into the transmission/selector rod joint directly. There's no offset--it doesn't come in from the side. The "Gear Selector Rod Joint" (part #16 on the 2002 FAQ diagram) is totally different to accomodate this different selector rod.

Does anyone know which year 2002 (I assume it's not a 1972) this different setup comes from? That joint is worn and I need to rebuild it.

Thanks,

Peter

consider an upgrade to the newer apre's 73 or tailor your rebuild to the earlier style you have. Some say the earlier bushings wear faster-not sure on that one.

Thanks. It sounds like it's the original 1972 linkage. Does anyone have the part numbers for the cylindrical joint between the transmission and the selector rod? I'd like to replace all of the hardware in that joint.

Also, what's the best reference for part numbers? I'd like to buy either a printed version or a computerized version.

Thanks again,

Peter

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
