I made a bracket for the lpg injectors.








And this is what the finalized engine compartment looks like with everything in it's place and connected.




So I was well on my way finalizing this project. Unfortunately I was uncapable to get the rear wheels moving. The automatic gearbox just wouldn't play along.
Now the reason I went with the automatic was because it's readily available at reasonable costs, and it seemed like the perfect thing to do to this car. HOWEVER, the challenges of getting it to work are well above my expertise (my surname isn't Buchka) and also above my patience. I've checked all my connections several times over, but it appears I miss some input signal(s). I probably could bring it to some specialist but that would cost more than going manual..... so guess what I did?




Yes, that's an e39 M5 unit. I got it for a very good price. Basically if's you're going manual on an m60/62 car you want a 6-speed. The 5-speed is really not worth the effort.

So, stick it is!

Progress. First testfit of the gear box.




Shortened an old shift linkage I still had hidden somewhere. And I ordered new bushing etc.






Made some schaffolding, which doubles as a skid plate.








Made for the I don't know how many'd time a gear box support. I made it super strong so it also creates some additional rigidity to the frame rails. In theory.








Scored a good used flywheel and clutch set of an e39 M5. I reset the clutch.






Ordered a clutch line from a motorcycle shop. I will use it with a 940 master.




Painted the gear box since it was medium blasted anyway. Normally I'm not too partial to painting these things but who cares.




And then it was finally time to install everything "for good".






Now I'm waiting for the prop shaft to arrive and then I can go forward again.

How do you plan on mounting the back of the extension arm?

A rubber bushing in a bracket. As it happens I'm going to make it today. Especially for you I will make a small update about it

Honored. Although I have this bad habit of selling finished project cars so if it ever has to go I'll drop you a line.

So last Saturday I was looking for a decent solution. Then I noticed this exhaust hanger I still had of the X5 exhaust.




Fits perfect.




Mechanism fitted. Used aluminium angle to fit the hanger. Looks dodgy, feels solid. Shifter now complete and it shifts great.




The 940 master connected.




Because I used to mess around with old bmw's in the past (well, still got one) I had this e21 3-series reservoir still laying around. Fits perfect in a Volvo bmc but it's all Ate so not really surprising.

Actually it was sh!te and I wasn't thinking but cutting corners instead. So I made a new bracket with a single bolt attachment to the tunnel. Welded a nut on the inside.






I got the prop shaft back from the balancer because it needed to be lengthened. Installed it and the exhaust too. It looks a bit ridiculous now because it was made to fit just around the 5hp30. I may fix it in the future but it's basically a chimney so it's function over form to me right now.
