RE: Can you put a 300D 5-speed in a 77 240D
Hey, Mercmad, thanks for the info. You're the first to reply to this and I've posted several times...
Anyway, ny 240d is a manual (I don't like autos), so I think everything is pretty much in place to make the swap. I figured that I would need to replace the transmission, of course, but also the front part of the drive shaft, since that is probably different because I think the 5 speed tranny is probably a few inches longer than the 4-speed.
So it all just bolts together...
I'll let you know how it goes!
I'm gonna go up to a junkyard in Sun Valley (CA) to see if I can find a pretty good used one, but that'll be after I finish converting the thing to run on veggie oil this weekend...
