Good day. Is there a member that can assist me with info regarding spare parts to overhaul a 4 speed manual gearbox for my Mercedes Benz 1959 190B. I am not very technically minded but would like to have the gearbox redone and a reverse light switch replaced. Any pointers as to a good mechanic for these cars in particular would also be a huge advantage.

Might be worth Googling The SL shop. Although specialising in SL's, they are extremely knowledgeable of old Mercs in general and they may be able to recommend someone.

My more recent (1991) auto box was overhauled successfully by Manual transmission repairs | Mackie Automatic & Manual Transmissions. They are in Glasgow but the box was shipped to and from them from Portsmouth for a reasonable price.

They appear to do auto/manual/industrial and other transmissions so it may be worth talking to them.

Good hunting.

Have a look at German ebay, usually have gear boxes for sale.
What oil is in the gearbox?, it should be ATF, NOT gear oil, it will almost impossible to change gear when cold.
