Looking for used 1999 MB, e300, Turbo Diesel Cylinder Head
I may be in need of a used cylinder head, or a recommendation of a good machine shop that would be willing to do some welding and machine work on the old head. Head was damaged when I attempted to drill out a dead glow plug and drilled the hole off center. Special kind of stupid, but that's the current state of affairs.
Have been looking at head removal procedures, and it looks pretty straight forward, but not sure how to pull the chain through the dead without loosing timing. If I secure the chain to the camshaft sprocket, will the chain and sprocket pass through the head to allow it's removal. I haven't taken the cylinder head cover off, yet, to be able to determine if there is room.
I may have actually drilled into the precombustion chamber, so that may be another issue. Not a good day!
