Ok fellas,

I am doing this...gearbox is out! The FAQ's are memorized., http://www.bmw2002faq.com/content/view/23/32/. (Other than building the tool this kid is ready too roll)

My question is where to buy the gaskets, seals and bearings? The BMW shop? Aftermarket? Napa?

Also, is this the perfect opportunity too rebuild the shifter? Same deal...parts recommendations, bushings, pins, all the goods.

Actually...

if it's a 240 or 235, the bearings are all standard.

If it's a 245, then there's at least one specialist bearing.

And frankly, in the 2 that I've pulled, the ONLY thing that

dies are the countershaft bearings. Well, and the synchros.

Timken publishes a catalog for 1989 & older vehicles that lists all of the bearings and seals one may need for each component and the corresponding Timken part #. It's organized by car model and year; old Bimmers are covered. The catalog can be downloaded from the Timken website via search. One only needs to then go to an authorized Timken dealer and buy the seals, etc. at considerable savings. Napa and other auto stores may also be abe to source bearings and seals. However, their suppliers' products may be of uncertain quality and materials.
