Nice work there; is this console PN. A4606102631 being welded in?

If so, how did you determine the position?
Do you have a measurement and a reference line for finding the correct position for this console?

Thanks,

Re: w460 with wolf tranny om617a

Stick with the OM617A and go with DM pump, you'll be happy you did. Or if you have access to OM662 or OM605 thos are quite easy to install as well but do require manual pump conversions. Cheers! om662(a) already has the manual pump. together with some om602 parts from a G (check for ex-290GD engine...

Thanks, good info. Was 1984 the last year of the barn door set up?
I think so, as I got a 1984 280GE with a single swing out door.

Re: G pictures, post them here!

I know DPUK isn't very popular around here, but they made something nice for the inlet and the exhaust, although loud pipes are totally not of my liking.
