Clutch fitting

I had a clutch and flywheel lying in the garage of which I didn’t know anything. So I decided to Google the numbers and see if I could fit them to the engine.

What do I have:

  • BMW E34 520i (m50) single-mass flywheel
  • Sachs pressure plate, type M228, suitable for ZF SRE
  • Sachs clutch plate, 228TD, 23×29-10N

It fits all pretty good and as far as I could see, the flywheel does not hit anything.

Then I wanted to know if the E28 524td propshaft and silent block bolts up with the ZF gearbox without modifications:

Works great!
