A lot of intrest for those engines, it's easier to write some information of them here to send private messages.
I have two engines, both of them 300HP/220 KW engines without catalysts...
So, here's the picture of that first engine, first I wanted to install it to my W126, but now I am looking for 6,0 M117 AmG engine and I have considered even to intall 55 AMG engine with compressor...but the electronics would be the main problem...That engine I am ready to sell riht now.
I bought it from Germany some months ago, I have a friend there. He says that it has run aprox. 170 000 km and I think it's true, he's the one who took it from 560 SEL and it run perfectly(totally quite). I have screwed off the cylinder head covers, it was very OK from there, the camshafts were really nice, only a few very small crathches...But the shape of it is in excellent condition.... Before installing I suggest to change the gaskets ( no need to change the cylinder heads gaskets), it's easier to do it when the engine is off the viehcle..
It will come asi you see it from the picture - A/C compressor and oil cooling radiator as well. I will not unscrew anything from there. And plase look the exhaust manifolds, there are 4 outlets as the 220kw engine have....
Then the transport - I have to check for it but I think it will not be a problem beacause there are a lot of seaconteiners going back empty to US.
What it would cost I'll have to find out but I guess a couple of hundreds $...
And I have one engine more, that I bought some years ago and I wanted to restore it totally.
The cylinder heads are restored - ALL of the changeble parts are changed, I have used only the original parts of Daimler.
The cylnder heads themselves are planished as well. ALL the gaskets of the engine have been changed, it has a new oil pan, new chain with all the levelers and the tensioner.
The main block was in excellent conditon, I didn't restore it. The bulbs, crancshaft etc. were in excellent condition...
It has new A/C pump, new cylinder head covers etc and the exhaust manifolds are crohmed.
Only the parts themselves has costs so far ~4000 EUR. And that engine I will sell only if I'll find the AMG 6,0 engine or I will install some newer AMG engine to my car.
