5 speed manual for 123 300d/300td

-- This post is an APRIL FOOLS DAY JOKE! (a cruel one, I know...) --

Hi, I came upon a few euro spec parts recently, and one of the items was a 5 speed manual transmission for the OM617, pulled from a euro spec 300D with something like 140k on it.

The tranny is in good shape, and includes the whole shebang, pedals, shifter, clutch mechanisms, bellhousing and all. I don't see why it wouldn't bolt right onto an existing 617.

450$, as is, plus shipping.

Peace,
Sam

...timing is everything. I just paid $1500 for an entire car just to get the 5-speed from it.

Jeeze.

LOL, sorry guys...

I left a few choice ones in the forums, see if you can find them all.

Of course, this was the cruelest of them all... Playing on people's emotions like that..

peace,
sam
