W123 manual transmission

Hi all

recently I put a four speed manual transmission from a 240 D into my 300D. I prefer the manual to the old automatic. I would like to find a 5 speed overdrive to fit my 1981 300D, can anyone help me? Thanks, den MAssachusetts

Wouldn't we all.

You'll either get lucky and stumble across one for cheap or pay out the @ss to buy one off ebay. One recently sold for $2200 in the USA and shipping an 80lb transmission a few thousand miles across the ocean isn't cheap either.
