I believe it should turn freely. Something is not right.

I guess I got to do it again. Why did Benz make this so hard. When I did the rear main seal on my E430 I simply pushed the tc back in. Thanks for the guidance.

If it was easy, monkeys could do it.

Pulled the tranny again. By the time I stood it up it was turning by hand. The little atf in the reservoir could be seen moving when I spun the tc so I guess it self healed. Now to put it back together. But since Iíve been spending every spare minute on it for the last 3 months I think i should give the wife some attention too this weekend.

I actually cried when I went to install the kickdown cable. The seller of the used tranny simply cut the cable leaving the cap in place. When I removed the cap the black plastic connector fell into the tranny. The tranny was already up and bolted in along with most of the rear suspension. After watching a few YouTube videos on the 722.3 I decided to drop the valve body and conductor plate and there it was. Glad I didnít try to remove the tranny and roll it. Whether permitting she should be drivable this weekend. Keeping my fingers cross.

Big day today.
. Proper new plugs and she fires up right away. Next, wires.
Drove it about 500m from my parking spot to my house.
Today I did: steering rack boots, front brake pads, front steel braided brake hoses, left front strut, that was fun, lots of wire brushing.
The shifter cable is kinked at the guide tube. Research says new cable, but there has got to be a way to repair it. Any ideas?

Cheers,

This is the oil. I flushed the coolant system but there is still oil in it. The oil looks like olive oil. Guess head gasket?
