Need Rebuilt 300GD Manual 4 speed Transmission

Hi,

Sadly the transmission (manual 4 speed) in our 1980 300GD died the other day. Horrible grinding sound in 1, 2, 3rd gears. No idea what happened. So now I'm searching for someone that can rebuild ours or find a good rebuilt trans. I would appreciate any leads on this. I live in North San Diego county.

Thank you for any input.

Bellamy

Have you also tried the club gwagen forums? Lots of good left coast 460 folks there and more than a few parts hoarders among them. That gearbox is very straightforward and should be able to be serviced by anyone who deals with foreign car crash boxes. I'll shake some trees and see if I can find someone recommended in your area.

I'd consider talking to Marc at Sun Valley Transmissions in Van Nuys, CA. Well north of you, but a well known MB transmission specialist who can repair your trans.

About to do a swap on my 84 240GD. With same 4-speed transmission as yours. Would sell it to you is you don't have any luck repairing yours.

I don't think Sun Valley works on manual trans when I last checked but
vadimivanovich (avatar) on clubgwagen.com does and he is very thorough.
