W111 Fintail interchanges?

Hello MB'ers-

I've recently pruchased a very drivable '61 220sb sedan, w/ 2.2 gas engine. Nice shape for it's age & milage. The only problem, other than marginal brakes I'm currently overhauling, is a loud howling from the manual trany in reverse only. I don't know my way abound a MB manual, does anybody have an idea what this is? I assume some kind of bearing/bushing. My manual hasn't arrived yet.

Does anyone know of a source for interchanges for this model MB? I.E., What year's ,if any, could disc brakes be swapped out of, etc. My local pick & pull has a few early to mid 70's mercedes that are fairly complete.

Thanx much for any & all help/reply's.

The reverse sound may not be abnormal. The 4-speed manual trannies of that era do make a whining noise in reverse - that increases the faster you go.

Search first, ask second!
