Draining torque Conv. 380SL

Dexron-Mercon III is fine for the olded cars. It doesn't matter which way you turn the converter. MB has a tool that makes this proces easier. One day I'll get one. Be careful about refilling the trans. The full level mark is temp related. You should be at the full mark when the trans is at 80 C. I would put most of the fluid in and get it close but not completely full, drive it down the road a bit and then recheck the fluid level. The engine temp gage is not a good indication of trans temp.
