Need Help!! Will a 93 w124 3.2 trans work in a 93 w124 2.8

Hi hows it going, I have a 93 300E 2.8 that has trans. issues, reverse is going out. I have been looking for a trans and noticed that there are alot more 3.2 trans out there than 2.8.
I was looking for 300E 2.8 transmissions, Will a (c280) trans bolt in? Will a (300E 3.2) trans bolt in? How about a ( 300E 2.6), will that work?

Please, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Well, it seems as though your reverse clutches are worn out probably caused by the reverse piston seals failing. It is a fairly easy repair if you are gifted at all in that respect. If not I'd recommend rebuilding entirely instead of replacing, but then again if you have an affordable way to do so. As far as a reliable interchange, a good junk yard should be able to give you a part number of a good one. The number is always located on driver's side about the trans pan gasket area, it will begin with 722.5.... I'd offer more help, but you're a world away, good luck

Well we answer questions best on what we have learned we can do. What you are asking is quite experimental. Now I would say that anyone of them would bolt in front and rear. Would the electronics hook up and work out. That is what you would have to find out. I am sure they would work, but that doesn't mean that it would be satisfactory.

I would imagine that a 2.8 and 3.2 would have the same transmission, the blocks have got to be the same, it wouldn't make much sense for MB to make a whole different trans for a slightly lower displacement version of the same motor.
