560SL engine - rebuild or replace?
My 1986 560SL has just been diagnosed with major loss of pressure in 2 cylinders - not top end so full rebuild the only option...or is it? Car has 100k+ on it. Should I be thinking of just dropping a replacement sourced s/h lower mileage unit, from an SEL say? Is this better economic sense than rebuilding an old tired one? Thoughts please and any leads on sourcing one if you can help....I am based in NY state. What sort of money are we looking at for this job. I have a rough idea from England but dont know US times and costs. I dont have the tools here to take it on.
Not very happy as was about to sell her anyway....grrrrr. Any one want a project?!!!!!
