RE: 190D diesel into other models?
Guess what? the engine mounts are all the same,whether it's a 190 diesel or a 6.3 liter V8.(although 6.3's had larger mounts).Your 190 will bolt into any merc up to 1990.Those alloy "arms" that are bolted to the side of the engine are different on each engine,so you cannot interchange those from say a 3.5 V8 to a 2.3 four ,as an example.If you have the arms,and the appropriate tranny,drop it straight into the "finny" of your choice.
Not all diesel finny's were taxis,some were everyday family cars too.
it's all too easy[:D][:D][:D][:D][:D]
