As was mentioned above, it ain't nothing but a 76/77 W200 non egr due to the 8,000# gvw the factory payload of a W200 is 2500lbs...

    Transmission Problems

    The trans fluid will heat up as the pump circulates the fluid wil the engine idles, trans fluid expands with heat, so at ambient temps a pint low is about right. I have had vehicles with TH400 transmissions for the last 40+ years. Once I thought I broke one, but it was the torque convertor...

    Clear Coat Over GCI 383 Green
