1995 SL600, 1983 380SL, 1987 560SEL, 1974 Lotus Europa TwinCam Special
I've searched this site and a general google search for specs on what has to be done in the valve body for a first gear start. I have a 600SL that had the first gear start installed when I bought it. Didn't know it was there - assumed it normally started in first. I had a problem with the valve body ended up getting a replacement. Now it starts in 2nd. OK, no biggie. Now tranny blows up and I';m getting a rebuilt but I'd like to get the valve body changed to first gear start like before. I found a general description of the changes and details of moving spring from in front of to in back of something (I have the site printed out). This forum has posts that there needs to be a ball change as well. Anybody know exactly what that is?
