I don't know if this is how I'm supposed to do this but here goes. I am 66 years old and the proud owner of a non turbo 5 cylinder engine that I want to make a stationary generator with. I live off grid in a remote area of South West Arizona so a generator is a must to pump water with and also to run the rest of the homestead when the sun doesn't cooperate with the solar panel setup. I plan to run the engine on WVO once I get it running. I am also planning on buying a running car this winter. I have been checking the Phoenix Craigslist and there are a lot of available Benz's on the list. I am hoping that I can get some info from the forum members on getting this engine up and running as I bought it from a wreck 3 or 4 years ago and I have had it stored since then. Supposedly it only had 110K miles but even if it is a high mileage wheezer it should do the job. I don't know what year it is either but I'm in the process of making a stand and I'll get it cleaned up and look for some numbers.
