How hard is it to find a used 560 motor in a junkyard? I'd start there.
Good used M117 5.6 $1000. Make sure it came out of an SL and has less than 100K miles. Also replace timing chain, guides and oilers before installation. I have a good running one with 200K on it but it wouldn't be worth shipping.I'm in Yakima, Washington. It seems like everyone here sells used cars, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to find a good engine. Does anyone know what a good price range on used engines is?

Was he the one that wrecked it, or was it the last guy/gal?Unfortunately, I think I have to sell it. The shop is probably going to gut me for the labor at this point. One recourse I have is to sell the car to the previous owner, a gentleman who approached me about the car after he saw me driving it around town. He told me that he sold it to the man I bought it from, and that he'd like to buy it back. I spoke with him today and he said that he's still interested in the car, and he'd fix it. It's a much better fate than parting it, to be sure. He asked me to tell him my price for it, but I don't know what it's worth, if I overpayed, anything anymore. I paid $4000 for it, thinking I was getting a good deal. Do I offer it to him for $3000, and give him all the engine information I've gotten by email in the last couple days?
It sucks to see the car go, but clearly this guy cares for the car if he still wants it now. Any advice on pricing, selling it, cars in general is welcome. Thank you all.
You already pulled the engine?I would assume he is the one who wrecked it. The guy I bought it from only buys and sells classic cars, he didn't drive it from what I know. You really think I can get 4k out of it, without the engine?
