Well I bought my first G Wagon in December last year.It is an old 1983 460 SWB Automatic Diesel.The guy I bought it of is very active in the GWOA and did a brilliant job over a number of years of restoring it to pristine condition.The only complaint I had was with the engine.It had the factory fitted 0M617 which is a great engine,but I found it lacking in power.Since then I managed to get hold of a OM617A Turbo engine.My garage finished the transplant on Tuesday.Since then I have been delighted with the difference in the performance,four hours straight I drove it when I picked it up.it handles just like a car now and I have to keep my eye on the speedo while in town!All the best and your forum was a great source of information while doing the work.
