Hello,

I have an 85 230GE manual which I would like to convert to a 300GD auto. Also a 300D to use for parts. Due to time/skill/tools I will have a mechanic do most of the work. The 300D engine has almost 300k km but is in good shape, the 230GE has about 130k (estimated from service records). Where can I find engine mounts and other needed small parts? in Canada if possible?

Thanks!

HI,

Warren, who posts here frequently does these conversions andn is located in Montreal if I recall correctly. If you do a search for "Warren" he is bound to pop up here. He is a wealth of knowledge and a very nice guy to boot! Just don't try to argue that there is an engine better than the OM617 and you will be fine[;)]

He can also make up the eingine mounts you will need. Most everything else comes off the sedans for the conversion.
