Hi Team,

Australia never got the factory turbodiesels. Aside from a lower quoted output from the 950, just wondering what other differences there are between it and the .951 and if there are any issues in parts swapping, transmissions, lines etc.

Thanks

The .950 was installed in the w116 300SD. The .951 was installed in the w126 300SD. The upper oil pan shape is different between the two, you can't use the .951 oil pan on a w116. Oil filter housing are different, .950 uses a mechanical gauge, while the .951 uses an electronic. The .951 has an improved valve train that includes an updated cam. Some .950 have no EGR systems. While all .951 should have an EGR system. Throttle linkages are different for use with different automatic transmissions - 722.1 vs 722.303. The later .951s came with a smaller water pump pulley, electronic sensors for RPM and rack position data, Air Recirculating Valve for the turbo and on '85 Cali models a Trap Oxidizer.

Thanks, Richard.

The destiny of this engine is more than likely going to be either an Australian-delivered 1981 or 82 TD wagon or a 108 that's already got a 1981 (Series II) OM617 N/A in it, so as long as it's sideways or backwards compatible I'll be a happy guy.

All input gratefully received.
