1983 mercedes benz 300d 5 speed 5 cylinder

i have recently purchased a 1983 123 series 300d with 5 cylinder n 5 speed gear . when the car is in speed between 30-50kms there is some noise passing on from the gearbox to the body. is it because of the mounting rubber or due to clutch wear out.

pls advs

Cheers Pradeep

Clutch plate can be checked using a feeler gauge and sticking it between the clutch cylinder and transmission. If the gauge goes in all the way, the clutch plate is OK.

Five-speeds transmissions need maintenance, so start by changing the transmission oil. Then check the driveline for rubbers (flex discs or rubber bushings) that have become hard or torn.

Is the gearbox noisy in all the gears?
