1985 300D Rebuilt Engine Source?
Well, my 1985 300D needs a rebuilt engine since the timing chain just broke. The car is in good shape otherwise. I'm trying to decide if I should invest in the rebuild or to donate the car and take whatever tax break I can get. I see it will cost about $4K for a rebuilt engine, plus whatever labor is involved.
Lots of questions, any advice is appreciated?
Does anyone know a good source for rebuilt engines?
When I see core Deposite $800 does this mean I pay $800 towards the purchase of the engine when I ship them the core?
Does anyone buy cars that need rebuilds, what might I expect for it?
Should I even consider investing in the rebuild or should I just cut my losses?
