1963 230SL Manual Transmission Support Plate/ Piece
« on: July 09, 2024, 17:37:28 »
I'm looking for a manual transmission support plate/ piece specific to a 1963 230SL.

This plate seems to have changed from a longer design in 1963 to a shorter design in 1964 with fewer bolt holes. (Pictures attached)

I need the longer design from 1963.

Any leads greatly appreciated!!

I recently used Sun Valley Mercedes Transmissions in Pacoima, Ca (818)782-2300, to rebuild the  original automatic transmission on my '71 280SL.
They are renowned MB transmission specialists for their expertise. I would try them for the part.
I live in Palm Springs and am a business owner in the hospitality business with LVRBO properties in both Palm Springs and Manhattan Beach.
