BMW MAN­UAL SWAP

Classics Monthly - - Service Bay -

Q:

I have a 1984 528i with a dy­ing au­to­matic gear­box, it’s sec­ond re­build and ‘flar­ing’ in the gears. I’m fed up with it now and was to con­vert to man­ual - I’ve found a later E34 535i box, will that do the job?

A:

Yes. You need an E28 525i/528i fly­wheel and clutch, a Ge­trag 260 gear­box (M30), a prop and a pedal box. Use the later post 1986 pedal box be­cause it uses the £25 clutch master cylin­der and not the £200 one! A bit of light wiring, re­move the old cooler pipework, job done.
