List of manuals needed for rebuild/conversion
« on: 14 October 2018, 05:03 PM »
I am in the process of gathering the manuals I need to convert and rebuild my 450sel into a Diesel. Are there any I am missing from this list? I plan on tearing down the engine so all the information I need to rebuild and machine it would be needed. I would think it would be in the Technical data manual. Of course I'd add the epc to this list as well.

Service Manual Chassis and Body Series 116 V. I and II
Turbo Diesel 300SD (116.120) USA 1978 (removal procedures no specifications)
1968-1981 Mercedes Benz Diesel Injection Service Procedures Manual
1982 Mercedes-Benz Technical Data Passenger Cars Service Manual (included 116.120)
Mercedes Benz Service Manual Engine 617.95 Turbo Diesel (contains head specification etc)

There is a service manual for the OM617 turbo diesel engine, and it's quite thick (about as thick as W116 service manual volume 1). Also, the service manual for the 722.120 transmission would be helpful (I know at least ATSG makes one if Mercedes doesn't).

Yes! That is the one i am searching for. I had found it long time ago. Thank you for the reminder.
Looks like that transmission service manual will prove to be quite elusive, specifically the W4B-025 722.120 Trans. The rest are easier to find OEM manuals.
Update original post with the titles
