I suggest calling a rebuilder. Someone familiar with these boxes would be preferable. I went through problems with my diesel Ram. There the main difference between 1/2, 3/4 & 1 ton trucks is the gear ratio. They all bolt up. RedheadSteering may be Ram specific but is helpful & knowledgable. Start there unless you find something MBZ specific. You can't keep cranking on the over center nut and expect the box to work.

Or try these people. They have a good rep on another car (type) site.
85SD 240K & stopped counting. 84SD 180,000. Thinking of painting both.
