I didn't ask about the transmission but I was thinking about it Do you know the name of the 5 speed manual transmission that was used with the OM602 Sprinter?


No i do not, but suffice to say that the size of it forced substantial body lift to make it fit on both the ones i have seen.

RE: 711.117 transmission

Gotcha, you first comment made me realize this wasn't a good idea but I still asked for the name because I was curious to see the kind of overdrive it has. In this era having the right keyword is sometimes all one needs to get a successful search.

RE: 711.117 transmission

So I decided to go ahead with this project and I found a few 711.113 online. Likely these are all sold by members of this community

My original plan was to buy the transmission and have it rebuilt in Montreal by someone I know and trust. The risk with this approach is that we may struggle to find all the parts for the rebuilt. One of the transmissions I found is sold by Vadim -- thanks for the tip Andrew -- and he is actually rebuilding it. Buying this transmission would simplify my life... Now the tricky part is that I don't know him at all, I don't even know of him. Risky to buy a transmission from someone you don't know and who is 5000 km away! So I thought I would ask for feedback here -- I understand it is tricky to ask this but I've been honest with him and explained that I wanted to know more and he understands. Any feedback appreciated.

Thanks

I know him personally. Many G wagen adventures together. Super honest and knows his transmissions. It's good that you found him.

Re: 711.117 transmission

Thanks for responding. This is in line with all the feedback I've gotten so far and everything I read on the clubgwagen forum.
