View Full Version : Does anyone use......

....the E56 tranny? My engine came with it and I am having mounting issues. It came stripped of the mounting brackets so I ordered new ones. The ST202 3SGE (which was available with the E56) and the ST204 5SFE share the same bracket so I should be good.

My problem is that when I place the bracket against the rear of the tranny I can only get one bolt in. Nothing else lines up. In fact, all of the bolt holes in the rear of the tranny are staggered. I don't know what to do?

Any ideas? I need to talk to someone that has experience with this tranny in a T chassis.

You should try to use the brackets from the car and fit them to the trans, not vice versa if you can help it.

Don't you think it'll be a bit hard to fit ST162 brackets to a transmission that was in a superstrut 6th Gen? Considering that the E56 never saw a 4th Gen........I shouldn't expect my brackets to work on it. I'll try, but I'm 99% that it won't work.
