Looking For 1969 280s Transmission!

Hello fellow merc enthusiasts!
My 69 280s is in need of a new tranny. Been looking around but having trouble finding any.
Seeing if anyone on here could point me in the right direction.
Cheers in advance!

if it's an automatic, the 280S, the unit from later M130 carb engines should work, but only if you change over the drive shaft nose to match. The torque converter will have to follow the transmission. I think you will find that the driven plate is the same, but be prepared to swap that too.

Be careful with this kind of swap and don't loose / damage pieces you remove until you are satisfied with the result.
