By the way-What I am really looking for is part of gearbox for 260D (W138)
The gearbox is not holding on a rubbers on a part under the clutch but behind a gearbox on a special holder -connected to frame.I'm attaching a picture.
If anybody has pictures,please send me or share it here.Also I am looking for this part for sale.Thanks Tom

Welcome, and I think that you are the first member with a 260D.  It is going to be tough to find a part since there were so few of your model manufactured, only 1,753.  I think that the model 230 (W143) from 1937 through 1940 shared the same ZF transmission; but I do not know if the mounting is the same.  Hope that makes the search a little easier.

I'm surprised to see that rear bracket for a mount. It looks like it is all one piece with the rear cover. The 230 ZF transmission does not have this. I'm rebuilding one of these right now and a have a few others and none have this. Perhaps it was necessary to have different mounting for the Diesel because of weight or more vibration.

I assume that you have evidence that your car actually was built this way. Sometimes the drawings are incorrect or apply to a different version earlier or later.

I do have a copy of the W138 parts book edition A from Jan 1937 and could make you a copy.
