rear main seal housing 1990 525i

Hi, I'm replacing the main rear seal on my 1990 525i. My problem is that the housing doesn't match up to what's out there. Does anyone know what this is off of? Any enlightenment is appreciated.

a 90 525i could be either M20 or M50 motor, which ever you have, you probably have the part from the other
