Obviously, some electronics would simplify the installation. Rigging the pressure switch to the governor passage is a new trick each time.

I always hated that it took two relays to do this circuit. I haven't done one in years, but the concept is anything but new.

I have a 1987 E230 auto transmission which starts on the second gear. I happened to have a spare transmission taken off from a 1995 220E with 16valves. I would like to put this newer transmission onto my E230. Will there be any compatiblity problem? The 220E has electronic fuel injection and ignition. The E230 has CIS injection and a normal transistor ignition. I presume once the new transmission is intalled the car should than start off on first gear and move on up progressively.

Thank You this is a great forum to be in.

Yes, you can use the newer transmission regardless of fuel injection issues and yes, it will then start off in first gear if indeed the 1995 E220 did so.
