123 Transmission Faulters

Trusty '81 300D with strong maintenance history broke on my way home. I drove thru a green light, felt a bump almost like I ran over a speed bump (abt 10 mph)... and ta dah!! no more gears. I was on a slight grade so I gently let gravity pull me back to the light and I backed onto a side street.
Knowing very little, I checked upper engine compartment - and all looked great. I cut the engine - fired it back on... perfect. But shifting gears did nothing - - I tried them all. In fact, park may have worked...
Anyway, it's in the shop. The guy will check it in the am. He thought maybe flex disks (I think I have 2).
But the deal is: 0% responsiveness from the attempt to change gears - engine, etc. looks/sounds great.
Is there any way to narrow the damage or suggest appropriate questions back to the shop?
Thanks all.

I'm always sorry to hear about someone's MB "on the injured list".

I may be able to offer some assistance one way or another...The flex disk would probably make such a "thump" if it let go completely, but I would think that you would still feel/hear the tranny shifting gears when you move the lever. Hmm...I've never had that happen personally, so I can't offer any more than that...

However...If your transmission is broken and is going to be big $$$ to repair, I have a good tranny from a 78 300D for sale. I'm in Atlanta, GA...don't know if you're close to me or not, but it's really one of the last significant items left on this car I've been parting out, and I'd love to see it go to someone who needs it, and then I can have the chassis of the car towed away for good.

I hope your problems aren't that serious, but if you need it, let me know.

Mike
