The search for a diesel engine restarted...

Well after weeks of talking about the final price on the fitting of a diesel engine into my W114 by my mechanic we went for a last testing of the engine. Final diagnosis: failed to start. So all negotiations were stopped and a new search for the engine has begun.

So far I have talked to 4 guys with some dead MB's on their shops and prices range from US$410 to $2000. Detailed pricing is as follows (all engines are in running condition):
OM616.916 W115 $410
OM616 W123 $615
OM617.91 W115 $720
OM617 Turbo W123 $2000

The headliners here are both engines pulled from W115's because engines from W123's do not fit (as recommended by SilverStarRestorations). They are supposedly running but I have not had a chance to go see them start. Also there is a guy who says he has two 240's in his yard and was going to see if they started and would phone me back.
If you guys have any comments, please do.
