Default 560SEL Trans & Diff

Ok so I have the opportunity to buy a real rough and incomplete 560SEL. But I'm still wondering if it's worth having all those bits to worry about. It's an Aussie built in 10/86 with a VIN of W1260392A267775. It has a 72232302806667 trans (part # 1262707601) and a diff with a tag that says "Achtung: Spezial Ol Sperrdifferential", which I assume is an LSD.

So firstly: What are the ratios of both the trans and final drive gears?

What's the torque capacity of both?

Were brake boosters and master cylinders all the same across the W126 range?

What's the large ECU below the windscreen?

More importantly, will this diff fit into a W116 if I change the backing plate, or is that not required?

A truly sad end to a once sensational car.... As I found it at the wreckers:

Mark, I am glad that you have a cover over the car. Interesting looking country side where you live. Do you in fact have any plans for the car ? I would have said no, but stranger things can happen. Regards Styria

If you look at my signature it's the third one down and the 'P' means parts, since there's a limit on signature length. I'll be using the seats, diff and brakes along with the valves. The rest is up for sale soon with an party interested in the short motor already

Anyone else experienced wheel bolt failure like the one on this car? If so I have a way to remove them without destroying the wheel...

As a W126 owner it upsets me to see a W126 looking like that!

Look at the wheels on the 560!
