Auto Trans for w115, got one?

Hi, i have a 1968 220 that wouldn't go into drive. I pulled the pan off the the trans and found the snap ring in pieces and don't know what is involved in fixing this.
Does anyone have a donor car or transmission for sale in the Melbourne Australia area?

Am I right to think that a swap over of the whole trans is easier that trying to rebuild the one I have?

The transmission overhaul instructions are in the CD for the W111 cars. If the snap ring is in pieces, it will probably be a major overhaul. Check The International M-100 Group to see if anyone in your area has a replacement. They are W109 guys with the smarts to either help you get another one or help overhaul yours.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
