Manaul Tranny Question

Are the 4 speed manual transmissions for a 79 240D and 81 300D the same? What about the shift rods and clutch?

The 300D did not come with a manual unless it's a gray market import.

As for the euro 300D and the manual 240D, the tranny and clutch are the same but the shift rods are shorter on the 300D.

Do you have access to a 1981 300D with a 4 speed?

For all practical purposes the two would be the same. Early shift arms are fitted with a splined shaft, and the rods are a little different than the later ones. (they can be "shortened or lengthened easy) The clutch & P/P are the same but the release bearings are different. The 300D tranny was the same as the ones used in the 240Ds.
