Greetings from Pakistan


I have a 1980, 126, 300SD in excellent condition. I commute a 100 miles everyday and with current prices of diesel find it hard to afford. It has a 4 speed auto tranny and I think a 3.07 diff (It was converted to 300SD from 280 SEL by the previous owner).
Want advice, should I change the Differential to 2.47?
How do I know the specs of my current one? Are the specs written on the outer shell of the differential?

Any help would be appreciated.
