Please reveal this dark secret to me. I have this tool, but I need the 36mm ring end. This one is 42mm. What model is it for? Thanks.

also, the OEM spade connectors are oriented at 90 degrees, while the replacement ones are straight back.

replacement socket with wiring was $3.50, OEM at max is $63 plus shipping.

anyone found a sutable replacement? many thx,

Less than half the price from BMW and he's an inmate here http://www.wirewerkes.com/WIRING_1970_AND_BEYOND_.html

Rights are nearly impossible to find as it is the one side that always falls off. A new one from BMW is $115.00.

I'm pretty sure side covers didn't show up until '72. So in your case you're not missing a right side, you have a spare left side.

interchangeability

Friends, I have an 81' R100 with a 99k+ miles on the OE Drum brake 37/11 final drive. It has alot of drive lash and the diff is shot. Will a 32/11 from a 74 R90/6 bolt on without drama?

let me know asap as it's on ebay and I don't want to lose it.

37/11? I thought that was specific to R80 STs and G/Ss. Both of these had 3 lug hubs. As far as I know the R100s had 4 lug hubs. Double check which you have and don't buy the other one.

my bad

I was mistaken, in low light, a german 2 looks like a 7, so...

I actually have a 32/11 and the housing is ribbed, not a smooth casting like I've seen.

I think the diffs might be OK what do you lot think?

They'll interchange. I might be interested in getting your old one from you - send me a PM if interested.

Mark, there were 37/11 twin shock final drives as well.
