There is pretty much nothing interchangeable on different model gearboxes.

any chance you know about the rear plate of the 717.422 and the 717.400.

the 717.422 doesn't have the port for the speedometer on the rear of the gearbox...

I'm putting one of these into my w123 sedan. Just wondering if it's just drill out the blank... or are the castings completely different and i'm out of luck...
