Uhhh, we just matched up these parts to an 86 - 88 driveshaft (thanks Frank
J. Bauer), and the ears on the center section are VERY different.  I will
know about the round part of the center section and bearing fitment
(diameter) tomorrow.  Not to question Igor, 'cause he's usually dead nuts
on, but I'm thinking the above center section fits an 89-90 (91 and V8?) Q
driveshaft, not an 86 - 88.  However, we will go to MB and try and match up
the 86 - 88 center support, and failing that, if the center support is the
correct diameter (looks like it), I'm pretty sure the 'ears' off the old
center support can be welded to the above part #'s.

I'll keep the list posted.
