I would like to have a remanufactured transmission installed on my 88 300E. The transmission is out of warranty, so I would like to know if any competent mechanic can install it b/c I heard that if the tranny is not properly installed or adjusted, it could burn quickly. Is this true.

The 2 options I have are:

1. Go to a mechanic who deals with both american and foreign cars. I've seen a number of MB and Porches parked in front of his shop, however, I don't know exactly what they were there for but, he does seem to know quite a bit about the 300E.

2. Take the car to a transmission shop. Heard this guy is good with foreign cars (from a mechanic who's shop uses him).

Which one should I choose and about how much should I expect to pay for the labor - also planning to change 2 U joints and a flex disk (I provide the parts).

Also, a mechanic/transmission shop recommendation (apart from the dealer), who is good and reasonable in the Westchester County, NY area would be appreciated.

Thank you

You can learn alot just by visiting and talking to the people who own and/or operate the shop. I would make my decision on this data. I think the R&R for the trans is about 7-8 hours.
