Mercedes M180/M114 engine block question
I am in the prosess of rebuilding a 230.6 M180 engine for my W114. I already have the weber kit and a professional rebuild head for the motor build. But I found wear in the cylinder walls. To get this fixed in a machine shop here in Norway is very expensive. And the price of new pistons is also pretty high.
Now I found a used 250CE M114 engine at a good price, and I am wondering if I can use the block from this engine with my M180 head? The bore seams to be the same, but longer stroke on the W114?
Is this basically the same engine? Buy or not? I want to get my pea green W114 on the road soon....
