FYI 5 speed conversion info.

Perhaps this is already known?    I am doing a 5speed conversion for a friend and was having issues finding a 3 bolt flange for the driveshaft. I was surprised to find out that my go to driveshaft shop here in  Colorado (Bill's Englewood Driveshaft) now carries the correct flange for this job. No more chasing e21 parts.  Just an FYI.

Did they find an alternative or are they manufacturing?

That's that old joint that you gotta drive up an alley to get to.  He did my first driveshaft 10 years ago.  I think he can do u-joint too for BMWs.

I have a getrag 240 rather than the more commonly used 245. Anyone know offhand if they both use the same flange?

Mine took the common 6 hole Guibo so must be the same

So is Bill's Englewood Driveshaft selling the flange or willing to share their source, or do you have to get your driveshaft shortened by them to get a flange?
