    Hi! I have made a gearbox swap from Automatic to Getrag 265 CR
    Crossmember 23 71 1 175 731
    Rubber mount 23 71 1 175 732
    BUT. Problem with gearbox "bumping" into transmission- tunnel during acceleration.
    Wrong parts or do I have to prepare the tunnel by making it wider/higher? Best Regards/wolfram

    look at the fit and clearance at top
    if need be space down the bracket
    also is it the box or linkage?
    i have an adjustable linkage tower to push up to fit
    im sure you have the pad above to the tunnel hole

    Just received the KC mount as well...

    What a wonderfully streamlined product, if time equals money... I just paid myself handsomely.

    It’s built like a brick - fits perfect.

    I see the exhaust hangar is unattached, doe the CK muffler system not use this mount location? Only the manifolds, 2 at the rear can, and the exhaust tip one? I want this tranny support!

    i think this is just a pic for selling them - the linkage isn't hooked up on the tranny either.

    go ahead ... i think there is some fitting / engineering that took place on this ... and life is too short to worry about a few bucks. it works, its solid and its figured out.

    Funny thing is the rubber support that is engineered for CK support is Febi for another bmw.
    Cost is 1/10 the price

    Glad to hear, I thought I would have to shift gears by sticking my finger into the transmission tunnel hole...

    Thanx for tips.
    Feels a little heavy to go for a new set of parts after buying the above mentioned.
    It feels after all like a question of height. I'll have to find shorter rubberbushings, nicht wahr?

    Wolfram, do you only get the problem when you accelerate reasonably hard in first gear, a thump thump noise?

    Cheers. John

    It's shifter mount base rear support.
    Shifter mount base in 5-speed Getrag is shorter, than 4-speed Getrag and is mounted only on two bolts to the gearbox (vs four bolts in 4-speed Getrag) so it have additional ear mount on the back side, so was rigid when gears changing.
