190 transmission question

I just found a guy locally that has some 190's laying around, doesn't know anything about them. So I go take a look.

2 of them have manual transmissions, just what I am looking for. I run the VIN's via russian site. One is a standard 190d with om601 engine and 5 spd transmission. The other one is a M102 engine with 5spd. The question is...

Which one do I want for my '87 300d? I want to do a 5spd swap. The 190d has 200k on it and the other 100k. I forgot to look at the rear end ratio's while I was there.

I need to have an idea what tools to take to pull the transmission, shifter stuff, pedal ass'y, drive shaft. Do you think I can do it myself? I have put a transmmison in a f150 by myself but I was much younger.

190d is 717.410
190e is 717.411

Gear Ratio
717.404----------------4.08, 2.52, 1.77, 1.26, 1.00, R4.16, D3.07
717.410----------------4.23, 2.36, 1.49, 1.00, 0.84(0.81), R4.63, D3.42(3.23) (3.91>11/85)
717.411----------------3.91, 2.32, 1.42, 1.00, 0.78

I know very little about gear ratio's.

Any help would be great
08 R320 CDI current

95 E420
87 300D Turbo 5spd
90 300TE
83 300SD
85 300TD
92 400E
85 190D
