Thanks for the offer, thats actually a really decent price. I kinda live close to a junkyard and there are a plethera of w124s. As for the gearing, I read some earlier post, thats where I got the gear ratios up above, you say the 300D has a 2.65 in it? Should I edit my post above or did the 300D come with a couple of different ratios? Also I wonder how much that 2.65 would bog the motor down to much and not be in its decent rev range, its a kinda a short track but that 3.07 is still going to be revving high and run out of gear. I am trying to get the car to stay around 4-5k instead of 6k.I believe that (memory issues) 260E is 3.27, 300D is 2.65, and 300E is 3.07
I have one for sale, EDIT: 2.87 ratio from a W124 diesel (its not from the parts car in my signature). I purchased it a few years ago for my 87 300E but the project went in another direction (got a 5 spd. instead). It’s been sitting in the shop taking up space ever since. It has an ABS sensor (not for ASR). $125 delivered to your door in the 48USA, Paypal or postal money order. Size, flanges, pinion yoke, and mounting are exactly the same as a 3.07 unit in an 88 300E. Let me know if interested.
