RE: Manual Transmission information
As far as I have seen, yes.

Good luck finding either one though. All the ones in the USA came attached to gray market cars.

The iron body models shift much better and are more durable than the Getrag units.

I'm trying to lose some weight. But I'll take anything right now to replace the dead automatic.

Is there any difference in driveshaft length for the different manuals? Or is a 5-speed a direct replacement for a 4-speed?

RE: Manual Transmission information
The 4-speeds should all share the same driveline length. The 5-speeds are about 6" longer than the 4-speed and I don't know if the iron/alum 5's are the same length.

RE: Manual Transmission information
I have an iron "flat-back" 5-speed from a W115.
(also a "flat-back" iron 4-speed from a G-wagen and an automatic from '85 300TD)

Ratios of the 5-speed iron transmission are (hand turned and counted so not that accurate)

5th - 0.87
4th - 1.0
3rd - 1.43
2nd - 2.33
1st - 4.0
Rev - 3.6

it measures about 22.25" from parting face with engine to parting face of 3-bolt flange.

That's about 4.25" longer than a "flat-back" iron 4-speed and about 3/4" shorter than the late 123 automatic.

Good to know - I have the w115 iron 5-speed but haven't installed it yet.

What do you mean by durability - input bearing or something else?
I hear the getrags are susceptible to input bearing failure due to the split race design. But I know several guys in the G-wagen community who have replaced that bearing with a better designed one and seem to be getting some long life out of their getrags.

RE: Manual Transmission information
Does anyone know for sure if the 123 5-speed Getrag shares the same input bearing with split race that the one in the G-wagen used? I have a 123 5-speed in my G and am trying to find out if I should replace that bearing with a custom one without the split race when I swap in a turbo engine. I'd rather get things all lined up before I start pulling engines.

RE: Manual Transmission information
I've seen a local 1987 190D 2.5TD with a 5 speed. Was that a swap or a euro model, I talked to the guy he didn't seem to mechanicly inclined. There was also a mysterious getrag 5 speed I see around for sale thats out of the 2.5D model.

Any info on these as possible transmissions?

It was a swap. The nonturbo 2.5 came with a manual so all the parts are directly bolt-in, it would look stock.

The Getrag with the left side starter will only fit OM60x engines and mid-80s+ g@ssers.

RE: Manual Transmission information
The other day I pulled a 5-spd out of a 86 190E 2.3 16 valve with 153,000K

as per post #12 it has a 1:1 5th gear. this would be a close ratio trans. does anyone know what the ratios for each gear are?

HMM, I had some pictures, don`t know what happened to them.

the transmission is a 717.404, if I read it right

Great, thank you Lance for the info.

I`ve been following the 617 franken-5 speed by Dropnosky thread. If this works out for him, there might just be a project to do for me.

I have the 4-spd in the 85 300D with the 2:88 Diff.
First is a little high taking off on a steep hill, most other driving, no problem. great on the highway.

looking at the chart in Post# 1, looks like I have code "B". It`s out of a 82 240D. 3.91-2.32.1.42-1.00 R 3.78

This might just give me the gearing in between I need. 3rd too high and 2nd too low. give me something in between if I read things right.

Hey Tad, that seems like a better question for P3 or clubG. I would assume it's the same but I haven't been around the Getrag boxes so I wouldn't know.

This is the 5 spd that is 1:1 in 5th. no overdrive.

RE: Manual Transmission information
With OM60X manual transmissions

1984+ Transmissions
Work only with single mass flywheels due to 'long input shaft' requires spacer and cap depending on model it seems that some models only have the spacer and some models have a cap. Maybe a getrag specific thing.

1989+ Transmissions
Work only with dual mass flywheels due to 'short input shaft' and the pilot bearing being located in the flywheel itself rather than behind inside the crankshaft and not requiring spacer and cap.

RE: Manual Transmission information
The 220D FW is basically the same as the 240D FW, maybe a bit lighter. So yes, it should work but you'll lose some off the line torque.

The FW needs to be match balanced to your auto flywheel in any case.

Find a 60x engine to use it with, or do as Dropnosky did in this thread.

we are all looking for the elusive 5 spd for the 123 Big Grin, or trying to convert one.

RE: Manual Transmission information
From club124 about 717.411 Transmissions (early 190E 2.3),

After you've located your flywheel and have that nice chunk of metal in your hands, it's time to find your transmission! If you have a single mass flywheel, consider yourself lucky. You have a large variety of transmissions to choose from from a regular 4 speed w/ a 5th gear overdrive to a full on dogleg getrag from a 190E Cosworth. You can even use a getrag out of an early BMW E30 M3 (Getrag 265) The amazing part of between the W201, W124 and 300SL, is that they all use the same bellhousing! I've temporarily chosen a 4 speed w/ a 5th gear overdrive as a test bed transmission for my coupe. It's the 717.411 transmission found in most early W201s and a lot of W124 diesels in Europe. This particular transmission is known (proven by the Finnish!!!) to be able to withstand around 400hp at the crank. I have a stock engine, so I have no problem. If you need help trying to figure out which transmission you've just bought, take a look at the picture to the right and find the numbers 717.411. Those numbers are the transmission's serial - helps with identifying gear ratios. These numbers can be found on the passenger side of the transmission (driver's side for UK cars).

At what RPM? 6500rpm is much less stress than making 400hp at 3000rpm with a VGT turbo.

Doesn't really matter (within reasonable RPMs say 7-8k max) since HP is just a calculated number and torque is what breaks trannies. If your making HP at higher RPMs, that's essentially less torque, than the same HP at a lower RPM.

Which is precisely my point. Making 400hp at 3000rpm puts far more torque through the transmission than revving the engine to take advantage of the horsepower formula's RPM bias.

So, back to the question, 400hp at what RPM? Are we talking a VGT turbo / supercharged torque monster or too-big turbo RPM queen? I've seen many of both from the Finns.

Well getrag trans are taking dyno's like this and they are rated for 400hp...

RE: Manual Transmission information
All that I'm trying to say is this:

The Getrag and 717.411 are just as strong (yet to be proven, but I'm 99% sure I have one, having a shifter sent from Germany >.<) as each-other when it comes to manual transmissions, what transmissions have I seen used bolted up to a 606 smoke-blower is the Getrag. via -Dieselboost- videos. Unknown whats in the red car.

Thats only 295lb/ft. That dyno shows 337hp because its revved to 6000rpm. I make nearly that much torque at 2000rpm with only 145hp, while at 2000rpm that engine is producing less torque than a non-turbo OM617.

Thats what I'm trying to convey. Transmissions are rated by the manufacturer in torque, not horsepower, thats because torque is a measure of actual effort while horsepower is simply a calculated figure. Thats why the same transmission might easily handle 400hp from one engine but shatter from the torque of a different engine that makes only 200hp.

353hp 314tq

I can't find any higher, but I know they exist. ( I searched for an hour )

My knowledge about the get-rag tells me that 'Racing' (eg. 190rev's foremost authority in W201 Cosworths, builds turbo engines that are 500hp+ in sweden) that the get-rag can sustain about 400tq's (over 450hp) without modification. Anything more requires squirters and different fluid. Cosworth engines are not short on torque as you can see. Although probably comes in a bit later then a full-fledged VNT/VGT these transmissions have to be able to take some kind of abuse. Hell you guys bang on those 240D transmission what that are rated at 120ftlb?

RE: Manual Transmission information
Its seems when it comes to Manual Transmissions Mercedes doesn't release any kind of rating only on the auto-tragic's.

To my knowledge 717.411 (190E 2.3L), 717.410 (190D 2.2 and 2.5), and the dogleg are all assembled by get-rag. Rumor has it that the 717.430 (190E 2.6/300E 3.0) can sustain around 600tq's and seeing how Stylte Racing (M103 and M104 turbo) abuses this shit out of there's I tend to believe it.

RE: Manual Transmission information
I went to the wrecking yard today and found a W126 280SEL, Manual trans. I grabbed the pedals, the trans may be shot. The flex disc gave out and broke the rear of the case. I did not get the number off of the trans, dumb on my part, but I will go back and see what the number is. The trans had an iron body, I did not get the year either.

The vehicle had manual windows, leather seats, manual climate controls, no instruments...I am wondering if it is a Euro car. Hell I was so excited to find the pedals I didn't even check the bumpers. Boy did I blow it.Blush

RE: Manual Transmission information
I’ve found a sort of rusty, nothing special 78 euro 280SE (w116) with a manual 4sp trans for sale. It would be debatable to keep it stock or use it as transmission donor car to do an auto/manual swap. I currently have a 78 euro 280CE (w123) with an auto that I’d like to swap the trans for a manual.

Does anyone know if w116 parts interchange with w123 parts such as the clutch pedal assembly, and shift linkage? I’ve heard and seen that w116 and w123 share a lot of similar part but didn’t know if a trans swap was possible. My plan was to resell the 280SE after putting the 280CE auto into it so it is still a runner.

Thanks

The biggest problem is going to be making a custom drive shaft and the bell housings may be different!

RE: Manual Transmission information
The weak point on the 190 5-speeds with 717.411 and 717.412 seems to be 4th gear, or 3rd/4th synchro. I have now been through 3 different boxes looking for one in decent condition, and all have exhibited failure or damage at that location.

Its not so much that the gear itself is weak, but the synchro mechanism/shifting is weak. I think this has to do with the once removed downshift from 5th to 4th through complex linkages primarily. On two of the boxes, the synchro clutch had failed, and on all three, there is excessive wear on the synchro over all the other gear synchros, which are simpler connections overall.

Careful on the downshift from 5th to 4th!

RE: Manual Transmission information
I've just stumbled upon this 'ere thread (as we say in dorset) and am wondering what flywheel I need, single or dual to bolt my 190 2.3-16 getrag to my 606? How should I determine if my gearbox is a short or long shaft model?

I wonder if a 201 2.3-16 flywheel will fit the 606?

I can find out from the UK contingent and report back...

RE: Manual Transmission information
Hi HughF...

You'll need an OM.601 Single-Mass flywheel according to the Finns ive been talking to...

Dont use dual-mass, its not suitable for lots of torque and wont fit your trans!
--Worth checking your trans has the Long shaft, but it should do, the Getrag I think only ever has single-mass....

But, Reading above suggests the 717.430/717.433 is more robust than the 2.3 getrag non overdrive trans.

RE: Manual Transmission information
Gentlemen.

Just joined your forum and this is my first post.

The project is to install a 606-962 into a 1981 R107SL.

First problem/question is. I have a 717-412 5 speed O/D box, long input shaft, solid flywheel.

Will this box take the torque of a 606 turbo in standard output form?

Thanks. Smile

RE: Manual Transmission information
it will take about 400tq's give or take before it explodes, could be modified with transmission fluid sprayers & a syncromesh fluid to take a bit more.
