Guibo Flogged Getrag 245 [SOLD]


Recommended Posts

Price: $250
Location: Kingston, Wa.


Description:

I have [had] a 245 five speed that came from an '83 320i. [it has been sold]

Unfortunately, the guibo gave up and the bolts beat the shit out of the selector rod.

Apparently the selector rod is NLA.

It also did some damage to the rear housing as can be seen in the photos.

I pulled this from the wrecking yard and so know nothing about how it shifted prior to being parked.

If you have a parts tranny, or need one, this might be the deal for you.

I spent a LOT of time cleaning it....

Asking $250.  Not wanting to ship it.  PayPal accepted, but cash is preferred.

You should see if these guys are actually selling this:

 

http://parts.bmwnorthwest.com/p/BMW__320i/Selector-shaft/43697459/23311209475.html

 

Then you can bring the tranny to the NAPA machine shop in Bremerton and have them fix the crack.

 

Then you can sell it for $1200 instead of $250

 

Maybe?

As of yesterday, "NLA" is what my prospective buyer told me.

 

While your math might make sense, I am not up for the footwork.

 

Does your car already have a five speed, Ryan?

 

We could be putting it in your trunk in a matter of minutes!

 

You're buddies with that shop, take them this project.

 

I admire your ambition.

Show me how it's done : )

It's already cleeeeean.

 

Project for sale. 

Step Right Up!!

Not the same rod, this one is the external one.

If a buyer goes for this, I have a 245 Getrag I'm parting out (and it has a good selector rod). -KB

I'm the one who told Tom that the selector rod was NLA.  I based that on the fact that realoem showed it as "ended".  I guess I should have dug a little deeper as it appears that the online BMW parts dealers (GETBMWparts.com is the one I use) do show it available.  So between kbmb02 and the dealer it looks like you could gather everything needed to make this usable.  I would be curious to see if the dealer actually had this available.  I recently got very excited when I saw a rare NK part number show up with a price only to get the dreaded email a couple of days later saying "sorry, no longer available".

 

Regarding Chris's comment, if the part number ending in 475 isn't the same damaged part that Tom shows in the first image then I'm stumped as to where to locate the selector rod on realoem.  Wouldn't be the first time i was confused using realoem though.

 

Last, is the going rate for these really $1200?

Just for grins, I just sent them an email inquiry about the availability of part number 23311209475.

There is another selector shaft further down on the list, which says NLA.

This one says it is used through 9/82.

The tranny I have came off of an 83 model year car, but production may have happened in 82 (must have?).

As I understand it they switched to a shorter unit sometime in 83, so my guess is all 245 shafts are the same.

Chris's comment confuses me... but it does not take much to do that.

Tom
