W123 axle ratios

Does anyone have a list of axle ratios broken down by year? I'm looking for another instrument cluster for my 84 300D and I want to make sure the speedo will be correct. I know the 85 is different but are all other turbos the same?

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/automatic transmissions)




Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

85 300D 360K
82 Datsun Kingcab Diesel 483k
