Do a search here. I put most of one in my car and it solved the 2-3 and 3-4 flare. Other bits are supposed to soften the 1-2.

Is there a kit to make it start in 1st every time? I would do that one after I go my car to shift on it's own.

to be really sure about what tranny you have...

read the numbers off the side of the tranny case/housing... usually stamped just above the pan. My 1980 300D os pm tje right [passenger] side and looks like this:
123270320 722 118 0 209816

My interpretation is that this is a 722.118 tranny and the S/N is 0209816

Steven, I never installed the parts designed to soften the 1-2 shift since I can do that with vacuum if the other shifts are OK. The rest of the parts are used to determine the level of firmness you want, ie; three different springs for the 3-4 shift. I put in all max firmness and it worked well.

thank you, because i very much would like to firm up all of the shifts, mine are so soft that it flares and then pretty much skips a gear if i'm light footed on the shift, if i'm hard on the accelorator then it'll hit each gear

left over 3-4 spring

If anyone has a 3-4 spring for firming the shift leftover, I'll gladly buy it. My 3-4 slips out if I try to accelarate uphill.
