engine identification

Have had my engine in my 85 190D replaced and when ordering parts they do not fit. Engine numbers are 601 011 06 01. Can anyone give advice as to if this is an 85 year engine or of another year?

To make things worse, the car was sold as an 85 but found out from MB that it was manufactured 8/84, sent over here 12/84 and sold at the dealer 1/85. Could explain some of the other problems with parts, though most should fit the series I believe.

AFAIK, it is not unusual for a 1985 car to be built late during the preceding year.

Your odds of getting the attention of other 190 Class owners will be much better if you post on that forum. Scroll down from this general forum until you see the sedans section. Good luck.
