It will bolt right in, the Tri Flange is larger as is the Flex Disk, it will have to be changed to the smaller one the W123, W126 Diesel uses.

There are a lot of threads on swapping in a 2:47.

The second Gen 126 86 - 91 rear sub frame and Diff mount was changed and won`t swap over.
Some models, also used a cast Aluminum trailing arm. that will not swap over to the W1123, and early W126.

The rear Trailing Arms from W114/115, W116, W123, W126 up to 85 are the same.
The steering knuckles from W116, W123, W126 are the same and swap model to model. the W126 will work all the way to 91. the second Gen 126 86 - 91 used the ABS and the Knuckles have the sensor. can be eliminated if used in a 123. not sure about the W114/115.

When I mentioned arrows in the Instrument cluster, it is the turn signal arrows.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
