Thanks. Yes he's in Philidelphia. Do you know what other engines whould fit my 1985 280 sl? I searched high and low to find the one I have and would like to save it but a Metric Motors replacement is more than I paid for the car. Metric Motors lists .921, .984, .990 and .987
I have looked at an 83 for sale but I drive mine and this one looks like a trailer queen and I don't want it to be spitting out pieces of gasket while I'm on one of my trips.
Prior to purchase I had mine checked out by two experts who told me I should get another 100,000 miles out of the engine, I wish it were true.
