IE Getrag 245 gasket kit question

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to purchase this gasket set from IE to reseal a Getrag 245. Can someone tell me where the large O-Ring goes thats included in this kit.  For the record, I had only planned to do the input & output seals and the shift shaft seal but I'm curious about the large O-ring.  THX.

I think the large O-ring is actually for the 242 4 speed, as are the case gaskets since the 245's used special sealant from the factory instead of gaskets.

 

You can get all the shaft seals from your local auto parts store if you look up the sizes on realoem.com.

That's what I was thinking regarding the O-Ring but since it's shown on both the the 242 and the 245 I wasn't sure. THX.

    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
