Anyone need M117 parts-Houston
I thought I would offer this up to you all on the vintage site first. I have a "complete" M117 motor with a 4bolt auto transmission that I need to get rid of. The engine is from my 280SEL and was replaced due to a blown head gasket on the left side. The left head is likely good with a resurfacing. The right head is good. The lower end is high mileage but did not burn oil or smoke (perhaps a quart every 5,000 miles) and was a strong runner. I also have accessories (from a 450SLC) such as alternator, PS pump etc. The tranny is from a 74 450SLC euro so it has an extra clutch pack in it vs the US versions.
It is expensive to ship these so thought Houston area residents make more sense. Let me know if you need pieces or the whole thing (preferred).
