It is really hard to figure out what you are saying. Your language and typing is pretty elementary. But if you are saying what I think you are saying, I would say junk the whole bunch.

Ok, I will try this again.

I have in my possession a manual steering gearbox specific to the w123 Mercedes. It has a part number of 1234610601.

This is a rare and almost unheard of item. I would like to know if there is a rebuild kit for it that includes seals, bushings, bearings, etc.

Well that is written well enough. There are a few people that really want the manual steering gear. The last guy I was reading about really thought that eliminating the PS gear would do great things for his 300D mileage. I think he was kidding himself, but what the heck, it might help a little. I imagine if there is a rebuild kit for it, the dealer could get one.

Looking on the Russian EPC (EverythingBenz - Mercedes-Benz Forum and Web Search Using Google) it doesn't look too involved.

The link is here =>

http://mb.ilcats.ru/part/class/1/ccode/1/cat/222/type/123/subtype/120/group/46/subgr//vers//imgno/3

Unfortunately the figure numbers don't match the part numbers listed on this page so don't use them. I'd either get in touch with the site sponsors or the dealer to see if you can get the bits you need.

I've checked Febi and Meyle and both don't have these bits for sale anymore - I thought I saw a reseal kit made by one of these box shifters before but it was a while back.

Dude! You found some! How?

I hope that you're destroying them so that the world has one less of these stinkers.

Lol. You gotta go to bum f#$% Egypt. I am stationed here with army. I had a guy from base go out and get them for me. If you are a world traveler the junkyard is near the north opening of the Suez canal. Plane ticket would be expensive but going to an Egyptian junkyard, priceless.

Lol, I saved the Egyptian population from having to use the parts! Some might call me a martyr for taking 4. I will take the burden but don't look up to me, for I am just a man.:-)
