Does anybody know where I could find a trans for my 540? Pretty sure my shift linkage gave out, all I can find is posts from years ago. Any help appreciated

RealOEM, grab the part numbers you want. Google, ebay, salvage yards online. I'm sure you can find one.

Or perhaps a trans shop could get just the broke internals that you need

I understand that. Will the tranny from the e39 match up to your drive shaft?

From what I've found they use the same trans. If it doesn't bolt up I'll take what ever I need from the 39
