Smile 380 SL Engine Replacement

Hey guys;

I am about to undertake the replacement of an 81 MB 380 SL engine with a used 85 380 SL engine with duel timing chains. As you might have guessed, the one I have broke, and the engine is far from easy repair.

My vehicle is in excellent condition, so I want it restored to a running condition.

I have many questions, but am a very capabile mechanic who has built nnumerous other cars and replaced a few engines, and so I feel this should go well. I still need your input and ideas to complete this task.

Please feel free to pass along any information you feel is relivent to the compleation of this project, and I will treasure it for my knowledge.
