This isn't my engine. Or my video. But I thought some would like it. I enjoyed the sounds of the engine. It's inspiring for my project. I look forward to hearing mine in the car.

He's right tho- compared to what the future holds, this thing lives and breaths and comes alive.

Whomever did the rebuild certainly has an eye for detail. I can't even imagine the cost.

I love this engine. Have it in A GD 300 1985(American import in 85)with less than 95K miles.I have it for two tracks in Colorado and it will go anywhere. As third owner and familiar with that engine since my first 1979 300SD.
As long as you do the valve adjustments fluid changes.
I have too many SUV’s in my paddock so next spring and summer I hope yo sell it to someone who will appreciate it. It is not highway car but for mountains and backroads.
Thanks for the video and the sound. You know those ATV’s that people drive like idiots in the mountains that engine is quieter than all of em plus you have great vision.
