1974 280 flywheel automatic trans problem
I have a 1974 280 with a M110 engine and automatic trans.(93,000 miles and I paid $100 for the car and it ran good for a year)
The starter will not engage as the teeth are chewed on the flywheel.
None of the parts dealers in my area have a replacement in there parts cataloges.(there is no Mercedes dealers with in 100 miles)
I may be forced to try junkyards.
(1) Will any "automatic transmission" flywheels from a M110 engine work, 1973 to 1986
(2) If i turned the flywheel 180 degrees on the crank what would happen would it damage something.
(3) Anyone know the part number. All i can see through the front port of the bell housing is the number "110 02" (I don't want pull the trans till i have a replacement as it takes up garage space that i need to fix my free 1988 ford ranger)
Many of the parts places don't even understand that there is a flywheel on Mercedes with automatic transmissions and try to sell me a flex plate.
(4) Is this a unobtainium part. I have look all over the internet for one. but without the part number have not found one.
Have found a number of people that claim there is no flywheel on automatic transmission M100 engines!!!!!!,
