W111 Engine - Transmission Parts??

Greetings, I'm new to this forum but very active on "the samba" which is for old Volkswagens. Amongst my travels in Wichita, KS the other day I came across a guy who had some older mercedes parts and wondered if I could find out what they were and sell them for him.

From what I have researched so far I believe they are from a early 60s 220, 230, or 250 W111 series but don't know how to narrow it down any further than that. I posted the pics in an album which I will try to link to below. Any and all help narrowing down what they are from is greatly appreciated!

They look alot like mine and since they really didn't make that many parts back then I'd say they would probably work, I have a 1964 220S...

The transmissions are 4-speed (3 forward, 1 reverse) thats basically what they had then.

The valve cover on the heads have the vent in the same place as mine so I think thats right too.

Don't take my word on it, but most of the parts back then were interchangeable 1961-1965 on the 190(c, dc), 220(s, se), and some years of the other models (200, 230)

The solex carbs would put it right before mine, they switched to zenith in '63 or '64, so they are '61-'63ish

The only way you can really get it right is put "make sure the part matches your car before buying."
