300d four speed conversion kit

I have a 1982 240d with a four speed and a blown engine. Car only had 97K and a ring scored the piston wall. I have parted most items out but everything is there to do a 300d four speed conversion. Intact in the car are the 4 speed transmission, complete driveshaft, shifter boot and linkage, flywheel, speedo cable, adapter plate on the back of the engine, clutch/brake pedal master cylinder and slave for the clutch. Get all of this and the rust free car body (out of Las vegas) for $200 and you pay shipping. I have not seen a 82 this rust free. see the picture attached. Car is located in Salt Lake City Utah.I will revome and ship to you for a total of $450. e mail me at paustenbaugh@comcast.net.

Flywheels

grimgaunt,

There is a distinct difference between a 240D flywheel and a 300D flywheel. I weighed them once and the difference is somewhere around 7-9 pounds difference. Also, on the older 300D engines there is a mark on the crank and if the flywheel that you use has a similar mark line them up for correct balance. New engines and flywheels don't have the marks , so they can be assembled any old way.

The older 300d flywheels will work if you can't find one of the rare 300D ones. 300d flywheels are far more common in the U.S.

When I assembled my first conversion and was a newbie, I accidentally used a 110 flywheel from the gas engine. Worked fine without any problems for over 18 months before I found out the difference. In fact, because it was lighter I probably accelerated better with the 110.

Be sure to get new bolts as they have to be torqued and then cranked around another 90 degrees for proper tightening. Old ones might very well break off under the strain.

Good luck, you'll certainly like the added control of a manual tranny.

Ben

true, but the older 115 flywheels are very close in weight to the 300D flywheels.
In either case, the difference does not seem (?) to be a detriment to either engine or tranny life due to balance.
Have you noticed otherwise ? curious

ps- in lots of flywheels the marks are missing as well !!!
