Hello, i just purchased my first Mercedes. It is a 1985 300D with a blown engine. Many of the accessories are good, but i am in the market for a good engine. Any help on where i might get one would be much appreciated. The car had been canibalized a bit under the hood, but i think i can get it together.
I have yet been able to get the top two auto transmission bolts out so i can pull the engine. I'm thinking it may be easier to pull the engine and trans together.
Anyway, any help or advice will not insult my inteligence as i am totally brand new to the mercedes world. BTW i have just found another one (getting it bad already) not far from me. It is the same model with a "good" engine with 305K on it. However, mice have eaten most of the wiring up. the car will run and i'm supposed to listen to her per this week!
