300E Steering Gearbox Replacement..Help!

Ok, I am helping a friend of mine with his 300E. We found out the PS pump is not the culprit, but instead a leaky steering box. We have a rebuilt unit, but we need to install it.

From my understanding, three bolts hold the unit onto the chassis. I also know I need a puller to remove the pitman arm. I have the Haynes manual for the W123, and it seems pretty straightforward on the W123, but does anyone have ideas on anything I need to know W124 specific?

He didn't pay a lot for the car, and we'd like to keep the repair bills to a minimum, and utilize our own labor if possible. However we don't qant to F**k up the system more than it is. Any ideas?
