This puppy was in my 560SEL that got smacked. Would like to keep it around by space is at a bit of a premium down here in Atl.

If anyone is interested here are some of the particulars:
1987 560SEL Engine

164,000 miles on motor.

Parts/work with in the last 15K

Fresh heads, completely de-carboned top end (have pictures of work).
New timing chain, tensioner and upper guide rails.
Intake completely rebuilt. Plenum cleaned to like new, lower
butterfly and main throttle plate cleaned to as new. All new seals
for plenum and boot.
New fuel distributor in last 5K, new injectors/seals/cups, new air idle valve.
All temp sensors new.
New cold start injector
New oil pressure sender (less then 2K).
AC Compressor 15K (R12).
Beru Wires, Bosch cap, rotor, W9DC's gapped at .42 and degreed in.
P/S filter fluid/flushed
Bead blasted, coated/wrapped manifolds.

I bought this car w/ 130 on the clock, I kept it mainly due to the fact i had never seen a cleaner set of rockers covers (internally) or bottom end when I took it apart. It's run synthetic M1 or Amsoil for the ever since I bought it. This car was going to be a "Keeper".
