I have the same tranny that I pulled from a W123 body 300D. It was obviously converted to run the manual trans from the older W115 body. I am looking to do the same to my 82 TDT but would like to know where the trans came from so that I can have the correct bearing/plate etc.
I have done a few things like that myself from time to time and if you can get freindly with a spare parts guy at a main dealer near you,(someone who has been there a while) they can look up the parts list for the conversion.Daimler benz used to have some good lists with every single part on them to do conversions like that.
I know that Daimler Chrysler is slack when it comes to this because you only have to look at the crap graphics on the new spares soft ware,but you never know,an Old hand can be very useful if you ask.
