1986-87 W201 190d 2.5 diesel

I drive a white 1986-87 W201 190d 2.5 diesel with an AMG body kit (strange huh?) that I bought 2 years ago. Black leather seats with a sunroof.

the only thing my car use to lack were an aircon unit and a little bit more power.

Recently I decided to replace the head gasket. Long story short - diesel pump got stuck at full throttle which in turn lead to valve bounce. The camshaft broke in 4 places and all 20 valves are bent. All 20 camfollowers are also gone.

I love this car and would really try to get it running again. New parts from Mercedes willl unfortunately cost me an arm and both legs!! I'm therefore looking for some one that is selling the complete head second hand.

Just to show the cost - new camshaft = R4000 excl !!
