Question center bearing

i had a 1.8 in my e30 now i have a 2.5 from a 90. I bought a center bearing for the 90. the holes are not wide enough accross to mount correctly. the driveshaft is from a 88 325is. i was told when i bought it that the center bearings were the same. i cant use the 1.8 one since it is shot.I dont want to buy one from a 318i since it may be too small.

ideas?

You should be able to return it if it is not right

The centre bearing design changed at some point in the e30 lifecycle - I think around 87 or 88. There's a late style and early style one with different mounting points. Sounds like you have the late style and that you need the early style.

Changed in 9/87. (Manufacture date)

You're only talking $60ish bucks in the aftermarket.

Try www.altrom.com anything from there can be picked up at UAP or shipped direct. ( A little cheaper through UAP in my area )

Hope this helps,

Rick
