As noted earlier, there is typically a tag to denote a LSD.
It says... "Achtung: Spezial-Ol Sperrdifferential"
Which basically means Attention: Special Oil limited slip differential

If the tag is not there, then the diff cover will need to be opened to look for the clutches.

BTW - If you get desperate in needing a LSD, those pics are from a 2nd Gen 2.47 from a 560SEL that I can let go at a not so cheap price. I am betting that you can transfer the guts into a 1st Gen 2.47 housing to make it work. PM me if interested.
