Unknown Transmission bracket

Posted by Dave Cz on 2021/9/30 10:26:06
I’m attempting to reinstall my engine/transmission assembly back into the car (55 400) and I’ve been gathering up the parts removed some 7 years ago. Not everything was well documented. I successfully located the gear selector bracket that attaches to the transmission and the two associated ½ x 20 x ½ inch bolts. But in the bag with the two bolts was another mystery bracket shown below.
No part number markings but with mountings holes that appear to the match up with the gear selector bracket.
Question: Any one recognize this bracket and what is its function. The two mounting bolts are short, but I can barely mount the two brackets together onto the transmission. Is this correct?
Once again for any assistance.
