Well it takes a little time sometimes to get our thinking correct. You mention a "probable" problem with the pilot bearing and forget that the engine with the four speed already has a pilot bearing. If you use the other engine, the one with the autmatic, that is an 81 I believe and the 81 617 will present no problem. Only the 85 built 617's have a slight problem, easily resolved by putting the pilot in the freezer overnight and tapping it in. A "cursory" look at the Russian EPC shows the same driveline between the W123 sedans and wagons. http://mb.ilcats.ru/part/class/1/ccode/F/cat/68M/type/123/subtype/190/group/41 If you wish to look at all components on your cars, look and pick them from this page.
