Lets play a game, guess what these parts are I found on the drain plug on my 1998 748.

Its 14 roller bearings. I believe from the transmission. I'll be splitting the cases this weekend.

Yer tis:

Fits on the crank behind the flywheel/starter clutch... think these are off a 600SS, which has two - yours should only have the one?





Can't think of anything else in the engine with a similar thin roller bearing - the cambelt driveshaft ones are a lot thicker.

Its not the one behind the flywheel, I checked that one already. The only other thing I can think of is the bearing on the layshaft with the gears.

Chrome flakes from rockers (and also aluminum) are non-magnetic so they don’t attach themselves to the magnet on the drain plug. They get caught on the filter screen.
Ah... did not think of that. Thanks for the heads up sir!

The galley plugs are alloy on the early ones, steel on the 2000> ones
