Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Just thought I'd point that out. And, the seal he is looking for for the classic 900 between the coupling and the transmission doesn't look like that at all. FRAK has a picture of the correct linkage (but he's not looking for that large bellows - that is at the firewall). JAWDERNA's link get you to the right diagram, but it doesn't show the little bellows (which I can see on my EPC). John_gonzo has the right part number (confirmed by my EPC), and yes it is NLA.

Have you replaced the seal in the transmission (part no. 87 30 764)? That seal helps a lot. It will leak badly if a previous seal replacement has damaged the nylon ring/bushing behind it (part no. 87 11 608)- as I did once. That part too is NLA and I got a used one from CMyles to replace mine.

The bellows you seek would be highly desirable. Even with the two items mentioned above intact, it still drips a little/ Alas, I have searched for it for several years (even used) to no avail, and have only seen it once in pictures on a website. LANDJET has the right idea: find something close and modify it - I haven't found any good substitute yet (but I haven't made it my mission in life to find one yet, so nothing to offer there).

Let us know if you find a good substitute!
