Questions regarding a swap in a 1972 Mercedes 250/8
I've had this car for several years just sitting in my driveway.The engine is in rough shape (among other things) and I was told it would probably be more practical to swap it for another engine in better condition.
My questions are: What engines fit in this model with little hassle? Can I swap it for a diesel engine like a OM617? Also, would I be able to get my existing transmission rebuilt and use that if I swap engines or would I need a different one?
Any help is appreciated.
The car is a 1972 Mercedes 250/8
