245/265/260


This is a Getrag 245 above...

265
245/265/260 from the 323i


BMW 2002 tii  245/10   Close Ratio 5 Speed Transmission


NOTE: in the diagram above is the 3rd section of the close ratio 5 speed, as you can see the reverse switch on this transmission is located in the rear of the transmission compared to the 245 where the reverse switch is located on the top side of the transmission case. Compare in the pictures below.





Getrag products a 240 transmission that transmission features a 2 piece case. The 245 is preferred because it has steel shift forks which are stronger than the 240's aluminum shift forks. The 240 is also shorter and lighter than the 245. There are 3 seals that leak, input, output, and shifter. You do not need to open up the transmission. They can be replaced from outside.

Some approx. measurements I took today:

G245 G260 G265
Length 52-53cm 53-54cm 55-56cm
Length w/ Shifter 86cm 80cm 78-79cm
Bell Housing length 16.5cm 18.2 16.7cm
Front to Shifter 64cm 70cm 69cm
Driveshaft Length 155cm ??? 152cm 

Five Speed Transmissions


The 235/5 gearbox was the factory optional close ratio five speed gearbox for the 2002. These units are fairly rare. A guess is that there were perhaps 2000-3000 of these units produced. This transmission was an option even on the 2002 Turbo. If you have one, or know where one is, consider yourself lucky! If you have one, and it needs rebuilding, prepare to spend some money and encounter lots of frustration! This gearbox is used primarily for track type events and for people searching for the best performance and overall gear selection. It is well suited to cars with heavily modified motors which have a narrow powerband. Most street applications are more suited to the five speed overdrive gearbox. Some parts can be found for the 235/5, but most of the rebuild items that still exist have to come directly from Germany. Unfortunately, a large amount of core parts for these gearboxes are NLA. If you are in need of major parts for this transmission, you may be out of luck. These transmissions are 3.0625 (3 and 1/16) inches longer than the 4-speed, and need the associated hardware adjusted accordingly. The clutch slave cylinder is mounted in the same manner as a standard 2002 four speed.

There are several easy ways to identify a transmission as a close ratio five speed. First, the front housing is identical to a 2002 four speed. There is an added cast aluminum section sandwiched between the front housing, and the rear cover. On the top of the transmission located on this additional sandwiched housing, there will be some numbers stamped. The first is a serial number, ending with a /5 (to designate five gears). There will also be a 235 or 238 number stamped on the cast sandwiched housing nearby. This gearbox also uses the racing style shift pattern, with first gear to the left and down, under reverse. The Dog leg layout gearboxes are desirable on performance automobiles because in road racing more frequent shifting occurs from second to third than from first to second gear.

Apparently, there were additional gearsets available from the factory (or Getrag) for racing applications. These are extremely rare (even more so than a regular 235/5 box). Nevertheless, they represent some interesting gearing possibilities for a 2002. The race version uses dog type synchros, much like the racing Hewland gearboxes. With this setup, you just bang it into gear and go. They're not very forgiving, though. The ratios for all three gearsets are listed below.
 
Getrag 235/5, optional close-ratio 5-speed for the 2002:

street version:     rally version:         race version:
1st: 3.368              2.71                   2.30
2nd: 2.16               1.84                   1.56
3rd: 1.58               1.38                   1.28
4th: 1.24               1.13                   1.09
5th: 1.00               1.00                   1.00

The street version is the one that is (relatively speaking) commonly available. Another thing to note, in perhaps a bit of irony, is that the 235/5 has not proven itself to be a very strong transmission. Broken gear teeth are not all that uncommon on 235/5 units that have led a hard life. The typcial mode of failure is a synchro will fail (usually as a result of over-exhuberant speed-shifting during a competition event), and parts and pieces of the synchros go through the gear mesh, taking out gear teeth in the process (this happened on the 235/5 transmission I have). Bearings (esp. layshaft) can fail as well.

More common 5 speeds:

The Getrag 245/4 overdrive five speed from the 1980-1982 320i is the most popular transmission used when installing a five speed into a 2002. The gear ratios are: 

Getrag 245/4, '80-'82 320i overdrive 5-speed
1st: 3.68
2nd: 2.00
3rd: 1.33
4th: 1.00
5th: 0.81

The overdrive 5th really helps on the highway. This transmission is 3.5625in longer than the 2002 4-speed. (note that it is longer than the CR 5-speed) The clutch slave cylinder is mounted "backwards", in the 320i style. With a 3.64:1 final drive, and 185/70-13 tires (a theoretical diameter of 23.2 inches) this combination will give 2560 rpm at 60 mph. A nice relaxed cruise speed. Even better, at 80 mph, the engine will be turning at only 3400 rpm. This transmission can be coupled with a 3.90:1 final drive, to mimic the '80-'83 320i's. Acceleration through the gears will be better, and the overdrive 5th brings the revs back down to sane levels on the highway. This setup will, of course, rev higher in any given gear than with the 3.64:1 final drive. Using a 3.90:1 final drive and 185/70-13 tires, 60 mph will theoretically give 2750 rpms in 5th, and 80 mph will give 3660 rpms

The Getrag 245/10 close ratio 5 speed can be found on some european 320's. Nowadays, this is usually the close ratio gearbox of choice for conversions

Getrag 245/10, close-ratio 5-speed found on some european 320's:
1st: 3.764
2nd: 2.325
3rd: 1.612
4th: 1.229
5th: 1.000

This is probably the better of the two close ratio transmissions to use, as it is of the newer, stronger 242/245 series design. It uses the stronger Borg-Warner style synchromesh. Plus, parts for this transmission will very likely be easier and cheaper to get in the future. The catch is finding one in the first place. This transmission is very much like the 245/4 OD trans, except that it is 3.125 inches longer than the 242 4-speed, not 3.5625in. 

Not listed here is the Getrag 240 overdrive 5 speed found on the '83 320i and '84-'85 318i, as it is almost identical, ratio-wise to the 245/4. It is also of a lighter, weaker design than the 245/4. It is therefore not a good choice when mated to a modified performance engine. Installing one in a 2002 is also slightly more of a challenge, due to it's extra width and lack of an available 4 bolt output flange. 

It is also noteworthy to point out that the newer E36 318is gearbox is not a close-ratio unit. The first 4 gears are shortened such that 5th can be made direct and push through a relatively high-geared final drive, simulating a wide ratio overdrive 5-speed pushing a regular final drive. This improves overall efficiency in 5th gear by reducing frictional and gearing losses.

Grill Restoration

As is typical i was surfing the pages of the fourms trying to gain a little insight on whatever lies ahead for the components i have yet to work on...there i found a member's ingenious idea of restoring the front grill...EXCELLENT idea!


30 years of bugs and road borne sandblasting has taken its toll on this bmw kidney grill.



As you can see from the photos above, when you drill the grill rivets out the dis-assembly is pretty straight forward, but it necessary to go slow. If the rivet starts to spin on you as you are drilling, it will melt through the plastic and you will have to find bigger diameter rivets that will ultimately show through.


He used a small piece of strategically placed wood and a secured body hammer to work the dents out


The use of steel wool or scotch pad to scuff the surface, then primer and paint the plastic parts.


Polish: with fine steel wool or scuff pad depending on the surface damage, then buffed with polishing compound on dremel or other wheel, then brasso to finish.




The Headlight Grill was scrubbed with a burgandy color Scotch-Brite scuff pad and scuffed all of the exposed areas, removing all the surface dirt and grime, taking all the factory shine off. Then, use some Dupli-Color CM-541 a grease and wax remover with a clean soft cloth. Removing any oils on the grill transfered from my hands.

Then apply some Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, this product promotes paint adhesion. Finally, applying three coats of Dupli-Color Black Arcrylic Enamel paint. This product produces rather than a shiny finish, when dry the result was perfect finish. It's difficult to see in the photograph but the improvement was amazing.

16" ESN Wheels



this is an example of a set of 16" ESN's on the bimmerfourms.com in silver...






they do fill the wheel wells...many believe these are the largest wheels the typical e21 can pull off cosmetically...not to mention the difficulty a 4 cyl. engine has with 17" wheels... these pictures help me "get it" i see the wheel wells here are full...i assume? rolled...hott wheels either way...

a well spent twenty dollars
