Custom-built kit for the W460 G-Wagon with OM617 Turbo-Diesel. This kit is also available for the W123 chassis with OM617 engine, but will be 10-12 weeks in production instead of 6-8 weeks.
If you have a different chassis or engine, we may be able to provide a kit for your vehicle--please contact us.
This kit includes a used BMW ZF-6 used 6-Speed Manual Transmission, flywheel, clutch, adapter plate, transmission bolts, and gear shifter assembly. See the video below for an outline of everything included.
You may need to modify your existing front driveshaft for this transmission to fit. It is advised to find or have made a 220mm closed length prop shaft if you do not have one already. Models which have the short prop shaft (drive shaft) as standard are the 280GE with automatic transmissions.
In order for this kit to mate to your engine, you will need to have the OM617 version with the starter mounted on the exhaust manifold side of the engine.
This is a great candidate to convert your automatic to a manual, or convert your 4-speed to a 6-speed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are selling the transmission and parts associated with the swap. We are not offering free technical advice on how to perform this swap for your vehicle--you will need a qualified mechanic with the knowledge needed to swap this into your vehicle. We can perform this swap at our shop in Merlin, Oregon.
Please note there is a handling time of 6-8 weeks for this item.
