W201 Manual Transmission HELP!

I recently bought a 717.411 transmission on ebay to put into my W124, and just took delivery this week. Now that it's the weekend, I took a closer look at it. I decided to drain the oil from it to see how much crap would be on the magnetic plug, etc. One problem: I took the plug out and could feel things rattling around inside the transmission. It felt like a round clip and maybe some sort of half-moon-shaped shim. My question is, where can I find a good resource on taking this transmission apart. Also, if the transmission is in need of new internals, where can I find some? Are the internals from a Getrag 260 out of a BMW interchangable?
