Howdy,

I am pulling my 5.0 M117.963 and 4 speed trans out of my 1985 G Wagon. I did not do the swap but from what was relayed to me it was a euro spec 5.0 M117 out of a 1985 500SEC.

I am swapping in a LS as this truck will become a semi-daily driver and back country rig. The wife will be driving it and we plan to keep it a long time so I am trying to future proof it a bit.

Before we pull the engine I will get compression numbers and video of it running and driving. If local to me you are welcomed to come see before it is pulled.

Engine runs great and wouldn't mind keeping the wagon all Mercedes, but I want some piece of mind when we take it on long road trips.

Let me now if interested and I will get pictures and video asap.

Thanks.
