76' w115 300d needs new/rebuilt/used Automatic Transmission

I have a 76' 300d, w115 style. I thought its tranny flairs were because of cables that needed adjusted.... just found of today that second clutch in trans. is worn.... and I need another transmission.

Anyone know of anyone who can help me out, or have one laying around?
I cant spend a whole lot as the car is on the edge of being sold/parted due to pretty serious rust in the floors. Im debating if I should retire this beauty but its got a strong engine, straight body and nice interior.... too bad the transmission is falling short


Thanks everyone!
btw I live in Nashville, TN

A 1976 300D has a single rod to control the transmission, not a cable.

They fit, but you need one that is suitable for a 300D, so you need a 722.118 transmission. After 1980 these transmissions became vacuum-controlled, if you want one of those, you'll need a vacuum control valve and switchover valve too.
