M117 - M119 engine parts.

OK, to avoid a long and boring tale of woe. In short I have a pair of fully rebuilt heads, new timing chain, tensioners etc etc. The exhaust valves were £300:00 on their own! I daren't total the full parts cost. [:0] Basically the full top end new for an M117 engine that was in my W126 500 SEL. I can't use them on that as it turns out (after spending a forunte on bit!) that the block is scrap as it's split! [:(]

I now have the opportunity to buy a W140 500 with (I presume) an M119 engine that needs some serious work following a collapsed tensioner.

A simple question really, will the parts I have for the 117 fit the 119?

If the answer is no then I shall have to continue my long and as yet fruitless search for a decent replacement W126 SEL, or an engine block I don't need a mortgage to buy!

These Mercs really can be a trial sometimes [:I]

OK, pretty much what I had figured, but it's good to know for sure. Thanks for the info.
