I have pulled the engine of my 190E. A head gasket issue... I have taken the cylinder head to be straighten out. Now I got the engine back and I'm just about reassemble.
I ran into a person that is selling his car for $900. The car is a 300e with 2.6L engine. The issue with the car is also blown head gasket.
My problem is I wanted to buy the car, the issue is:
"DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF THE ENGINE OF THE 300E IS THE SAME AS THE 190E?"
SINCE THEY ARE BOTH 2.6L......
MORE EXACT IS: IS THE CYLINDER HEAD OF THE 300E ENGINE THE SAME AS THE 190E?
I hope somebody can answer this ASAP because I will be puchasing the car this weekend.

They are both the m103 engine. So I'm pretty sure they are.

There may be differnt addons or little bits for the 300 but the basic engine is the same i do believe.

Mark may correct me.
