So now I'm on the hunt for a new camshaft, bearings and related parts. I am having trouble finding them, can anyone send me to a good source. Also, could I put in an aftermarket higher performance camshaft?
I had the same problem a few years ago. Purchased a rebuilt cam and an updated Hi Pressure oil pump from these folks. Mercedes Rebuilt Engines. I searched everywhere and these were the best prices that I could find. I dealt with them strictly via E-Mail. They were fast in responding with price quotes and speedy delivery. It doesn't cost anything to talk with them. Good luck.

Charlie, thanks for the response. It's good to know that someone has been there before
and got it all sorted out.

MercedesEngines.net are the same guys that I checked into. Seems like they are a bunch of great guys.

I am also inquiring about a high pressure oil pump from them.

Could you please describe in a little more detail what happened with yours?

I think I am just going to order the camshaft and the bearings from these fellows, and possibly a high pressure oil pump.
