Looks great HoSS, want to make me one too?  Did you buy that DIN shaft from SPHP in Italy? I'm finding it really hard to get an answer out of them about buying a shaft to make my adaptor between the MB auto and the Volvo TC

Cheers

Bump. Update? Summer's over here ;)  How's that spud shaft holding up? I'm concerned about the weld on the yoke. (been there, done that). had 1040 yokes & 4140 60mm thickwall machined tube replaced my propshaft on the 124 coupe. No breakies now.  centre uni uprated to spicer 1350. (can't fit anything bigger in the transmission tunnel). 

I'm sure you have it sorted, just keep an eye out for fatigue on the root of the weld on the 3 fingers. The 722.6 clutches should take most of the shock out anyway.

:D

I'm getting closer to getting this running with the electronic IP & ECU. Apparently its possible with a small mod to the ECU to emulate the key module. Then it should run standalone. Others have done it, i'm not the first.

I've also discovered that i can fit an oil pump & sump from a OM648 (W211) which has the low part at the rear and give me more clearance over the axle.

Any info on how you did the ECU mod, like a link! And have you upped the output of the engine? I'd like to drop an OM605/6 in my classic, and if I can get 200-250 bhp via an ECU it would possibly save some dosh!!
