I'm having difficultly putting my e30 318is gearbox into an e30 316i car. The flange on the 318is gearbox is longer than the 316i. So, it won't fit on the 316i drive shaft.
I have tried to remove the flange from the 316i but I need an extremely thin walled socket. Even if I do remove it from the 316i gearbox I have an even harder job removing it from the 318is gearbox.
It's not looking good at the minute. I'm left with a couple of options..
1. Use a 316i gearbox on a 318is engine.
2. Replace the 316i drive shaft with a 318is drive shaft.
Help/Opinions/Advice is needed and much appreciated.
