    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."


    $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.
