Hey there! Been planning and plotting for awhile now. I found a massive warehouse to rent dirt cheap, I'm waiting to find out if they are gonna approve me. I'm going to be parting out cars that are too far gone to save. I've got a few parts cars plus a couple cars to sell whole once I get organized, but let me know if you need anything.
Any way here is a couple pics I snapped real quick at my parents house where my car was waiting this winter. Fonzi brought the m110 that is going in it over there just before I found the shop I'll be building her in. I powered her up for the first time and everything works, all the lights, blower ect... It's missing a carb but I couldn't help my self, so I vacuumed out the intake I case any little critters stored anything in there. Found a couple dead ones hiding inside. It cranked over good and built oil pressure quickly. I wasn't gonna pour gas in and possibly burn it to the ground but then I found a can of starting Fluid. Couldn't help myself again and shot the one carb and a tiny bit in the open manifold and it fired right up. So I have a spare engine to sell or use in my other w111(Sophia). I have named this one Raquel. Hopefully I will be moving all my stuff to this shop early April and begin tear down and upgrade. Power steering, full r107 disc brake conversion, m110.981 k-jet(for now)euro engine. The last pic is the block stamp but you can't see it. You very smart benz nuts will be saying "m110.981 is a d-jet euro motor from a c107 slc!! " well you are correct and it was news to fonzi and I also. Someone transplanted this motor into a euro w116 280se including all the kjet parts. I hope this thing is a strong as we are told it is. I don't have any reason to doubt the previous owner.
