    1994 "First Gear Start" Valve Body upgrade for 500e's w intermediate plate, links, and hardware!

    I have for sale one freshly harvested 420E transmission valve body.

    They were pulled from 1994 model- VIN WDBEA34E5RC051966

    The ink stamped is clearly visible. This one the fluid was very fresh inside... could have easily
    been a recent rebuilt. Due to problems with later valve body confusion- I have also harvested the intermediate plate.
    This is NLA from Mercedes. On past threads, it was said, that as long last the intermediate plate matched the valve body- the combo
    would work in any years. Cannot verify obviously.

    They are dirt free and I will clean and fully drain them as much as possible before shipping.

    I make no warranty on them as working.
    The valve body come with a complete set of bolts for the valve body, intermediate plate and the transmission filter.

    These are the valve bodies that give the 500E a "first gear start."

    Prices:


    $400 OBO

    Shipping will be extra due to the size of the intermediate plate.

    The modification and installation process is well documented on this site. It's a great mod for hot-rodding the 500E.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    Does it really matter which intermediate plate is on the car when installing a FGS valve body?

    Got a few late ones forsale without the intermediate plate too...

    If you want to truely nail it perfectly, you upgrade all the parts and clean them. Removing all the plate muck and making sure the internal vb screens are clean.
