    From which model did this valve body come from? Is it FGS?

    It’s from a 400E/E420 for the US (and Japan?) market, they came with FGS valve bodies due to highway gearing. It will make your E500E start in first instead of second gear.

    If you search for ”FGS” and ”valve body” here on the boards you’ll find loads of info.

    The question on which year it came from is correct.

    The 91-early 93' had an extra accumulator. The later didn't. The early style will pnp with the later, but not the other way around.
    It would help the sale if you know the VIN of the car and/or the tranmission full serial number.

    This came from 1994 e420. I will see what I can do to get VIN, etc. plus I will let it go for $350 as I have no use for it.

    This "late" VB should be plug+play on 1993-up E500E with transmission 722.370.

    For 1992's with the early 722.365 tranny, the VB should have the late intermediate plate installed as well. Still not sure what happens when a late VB is installed in an early transmission...
