Hey guys, I'm about to buy a 190e (thursday).

Picking it up for $650 it has 405,000kms (that's 243,000 miles aprox)

looking at it for parts. It's a 1985 190e 2.3L light blue exterior with blue leather.

the best part is it's manual.



I'm looking at most likely parting it out, but I might fix it up. Not sure yet

Anyways my question for you guys is if I buy a late model 1990- 1993 190e 2.3L or 2.6L can I swap the manual tranny into it. As you guys know there are a ton of Automatic 190e's out there.

Any one know how much it costs to rebuild these transmissions?

Cheers
and many thanks in Advance.

First, there is "bolt hole" compatibility with all M102/M103/M104 engine and transmission pieces. Meaning, you can take a trans from a W124 300E twincam six and attach it to a 1983 M102 engine in a W201.

To really make it work, you'll need the flywheel and torque convertor to match the motor and all the varioius bits. You'll also need the proper length driveshaft depending on the combination.

As for the cost of rebuilding a 722.4xx automatic transmission, prices will vary on the degree of rebuild, but expect that a rebuild with all the new steel, gaskets, seals, torque convertor, modulator and other bits to run roughly around $1K, parts and labor.
