w115 4 speed in a w111

i have a 64 220b with a 4 on the column. it got some pretty worrysome vibrations when the rpms get higher than maybe 4500 rpm or so,maybe 65 mph. no tach. the second gear syncros seem to be getting a bit cranky too. i am over the column shift st this point and found a four speed out of a w115 car i'm picking up(hopefully). any body done this or can think of the major issues involved?

Is your intent to swap transmissions, using your original car?

You unlucky bastard, If I was in the country I could have sold you a floor shifting 4 speed that came out of aW111. I believe I have 2 left.

Anyways, just check to make sure the hydraulic setup is the same along with the bell crank housing bolt pattern (which should be no problem). Other than that should be a breeze.
