W123 5 speed conversion kit (Dallas TX)
I was going to keep this and try to trade it for a 5 speed setup that will mate to an M110 engine, so that I could install in my 280CE but I just bought another project car and I would prefer to sell it and make space for the new car.
The 5 speed is from a 1983 Euro W123 Mercedes Benz 200 (2 liter carb)
The car has the M102 engine which was running until one of the fuel lines broke and caused a small engine fire.
Apart from the lights, bumpers and interior , the car is complete and all parts for the 5 speed are in place.
The car also has a full LPG conversion with a tank mounted in the trunk and switches inside the car to switch the car from running on petrol to LPG.
Unlike CNG, cars that run on LPG seem to be able to run quite well in dual fuel mode. With CNG, it appears that once a car is converted, it will need to run permanently on CNG in order to run right.
I would prefer to sell the car complete to a local member to save the hassle of parting it or shipping items but I am willing to work out a deal with any serious buyers.
From my understanding, this 5 speed will mate to the M102 4 cyl cars, M103 6 cyl cars and the following diesels:
The vin on the car is WDB123220100098378
You should be able to look on EPC and validate any part requirements with the vin number above.
No offense to anyone, but I prefer to deal one on one with serious buyers then responding to random questions in a thread so please contact me through PM or Email if you are seriously interested.
If you have a 5 speed for an M110 and want to do a trade, then I would love to hear from you.
