I'm sure most of you guys here are familiar with mercedessource. This guy puts out some very interesting and helpful videos on you tube. The latest one i found i thought would be a great one to follow. The rescue of a 6.3.


Cheers John.

Interesting video!

I've seen junk 6.3's like this before. Such a shame, really. Kent is in for a real shock if he wants to restore this one.

Did you watch through to the 5th installment? He pulled the cam covers and it looks pretty good so far. Interesting to follow.

I am burnt out on this guy's videos, personally. The M100 will be fine, the air suspension will be pricey and tricky to get right. As long as he doesn't "miracle paint" the rust...

Wonder if the thing is for sale ... I'd love a 109 with a known good engine
