installing OM606 300TD engine , what type 6 speed gearbox ? and what type of mechanical pump? 1985 300 gwagon 460
Hi - enquiring on the following - am carrying out a conversation
1- putting OM 606 engine 300 TD (out of w210 1998 E300) into 1985 LWB 300d 460g wagon - Advise on the sump ?
2 - What the best 6 speed gear box for this conversion to go with the engine ?
3 - what the best mechanical pump to use and where can you get it altered?
Look on my posts
Sump can be used from om606. People say not but i used mine like that for a while with no issues. Just bore a hole for the rev counter pick up if needed
People say the sump can hit axle but mine did not. jack axles up each side to check for clearance. If not g wagon om603 sump needed and dont forget to change dipstick and also oil pick up pipe for the same items
I would stick with the 5 speed box if yours is five speed and will fit . 6 speed boxes are slightly lower geared and not as strong as a 5 speed getrag box. I have a cdi 6 speed box if you need one thats good. Prop mods and crossmember mods needed but if you can weld and measure well its not rocket science its just time
Do it electronic pump or if you have the money use dieselmekan as he does the best pumps
The pump will be about 1000 gbp with no exchange pump. He make the best pumps out there and they are perfectly calibrated with alda for turbo use
I have one here brand new but fitted to an om606 that was going in a project but i have gone with a big v8
Any more questions just ask away and im sure many will chirp in
