Lightbulb Parts manuals/300E 5speed rebuild....

Hey folks, thanks for the advice thus far.......Next question; were does one find real paper manuals for the 86 300E Engine and 5 speed tranny? CD's don't do much for me and they are hard to read at night before bed time! Do they still have the old style available? Also, how difficult is attempting the 5-speed rebuild for an advanced sorta guy like myself, anyone done it? Any advice and or tips would be great! Thanks again.......PS Might be a good time for the clutch/throwout etc., but it only has 112K....

MOST dealers don't attempt manual trans overhauls(we do)! On the newer generation MB transmissions there are tapered bearings that require precise set-up instead of ball bearings. Several special tools required! Cost of repair is higher than REBUILT exchange in a lot of cases
And of course less than 0.5% of MB's came with manual transmissions.
