It looks like Dieselkraut already installed the transmission. I'd rather not backtrack and further postpone getting the new car, as my old 190D is no longer road legal thanks to salvage title BS interfering with registration renewal. I'll see how it handles as is, maybe I'll end up buying the diesel flywheel in a month or so.
I was reading that it's easier to stall the engine during takeoff with a lighter flywheel, so it wil be interesting adjusting to a taller 1st gear. For the sake of science, could you weigh the different flywheels?

Slap the gasser flywheel in there and quit worrying....you're not going to have any problems. This has been done over and over successfully.

Car has been running fine but doesn't sound the same as my old 190D. I hear an odd ticking/grinding sound at lower RPMs (gone in neutral), which I'm told is caused by the timing marks on the gas flywheel. Fuel economy isn't quite on par with the old car and having to shift into 5th at higher speeds seems like a definite factor, in addition to being inconvenient at times.

I have acquired the proper diesel flywheel, but might hold off installing it until I can find a 717.410 (hopefully someone wants to trade?)
