I picked up a C43 with a bad transmission. Instead of wasting money rebuilding the Auto I decided to convert it to Standard. What I have found out is the M112 V6 has the same bellhousing pattern as the M113. So I should be able to use a 6-Speed trans from the SLK320 or Chrylser Crossfire. I will just have to research about the flywheel and clutch. Finding the pedals was no problem from Germany, I was able to order 2 sets from a friend so I can convert my C230 later. Has there been any other work done on this before?

There has been an extensive discussion about this option on the Other Forum. Seems there will be big problems. I also see electronic ones with impossible dialogue between the ECU and the box.

I know the ASR and the speedo will be a challenge. Could you pass me the link to that forum? Thanks

You could try contacting LantanaTX on crossfire forums. He has a v8 crossfire, and has some knowledge of the ECU issues you may face.
