    What driveshaft are you using? It doesn't look like the one they have pictured at all. The flex disc comes in a couple of different sizes. Wasn't your car originally a 318? Also, that's not a 24v adapter, it's a stock replacement flex disc (78mm) for the e36/e46 non-M cars.

            E36 has a different bolt pattern i would not be able to install it if it was the wrong part.

                This is point and case why you should run ZF320 instead of G260/240 IMHO.. Nothing but nightmares.. Nothing worse than constant drivetrain issues, more so when you don't have a lift. Although it seems like the E36 driveshaft is a nightmare to find also.. Pick your poison i guess

                    Id rather pay $200 for "a piece of plastic" that will work the first time and last forever then pay $100 for ones that have a higher chance of being garbage.

                      Many people have ran the 24v/G260 combo without issues. I chalk this up to operator error.

                        That would be great, I don't mind not having a lift the exhaust is currently off of the car so I can weld up the mufflers and then bolt it up. I would do it myself but I live in an apartment and my welder is just collecting dust in storage.

                          Exactly, almost everyone runs it without issue.. minus the super common noisy syncros

                            Well, heck, if it's already off, even easier!

                            Bring it by with some beer, and we'll get it sorted out..

                                I too am an S52/G260/S3.73 guy. A bullet proof way to know a drivetrain will work together is to source it all from the same car.

                                if you want a G260, snag that driveshaft with it (from that same car). Simple. No headaches as you know it'll work as it came from an origianl M20 car.
