I have come to share the knowledge!
I am new to these forums, but not to the Benz world in general. I have owned a few 300SD's in the past and driven them for short periods of time before removing the engine for other projects. I manufacture an adapter to bolt an OM617 diesel to a Toyota W series transmission and have installed them in a few Toyota trucks.
I just picked up a 98 W210, I may rock it for a bit as is if I can get the trans shifting properly, but eventually it is going to make way for an OM617 and manual transmission.
I will be sure to document the whole swap when the time comes, untill then I am here to ask and answer questions.
Here are a couple photos of my Toyota, Powered by Mercedes-Benz
