I have a 1989 190E 2.6 and I need an engine. I'm located in Chicago and wanted to know if someone knew where I can get a good one from. My engine went bad but everything else was excellent. And my body is in toooo mint of condition to scrap or part out. If not, I can sell the car to any interested buyers?? Hit me with a text. 773 294 7035

Try David Hendy; he's got a couple of M103 engines laying around for cheap. At least one has a rebuilt head.

Hey.
Theres one posted right below yours, (or down some).
Make a connection and see what he/she has.

I'm in Wauconda Barrington area.
My last point, however, is there is a guy selling a 2.6 engine about 10 posts below yours.
I can try and do a local search if necessary.

Where are you at?

If you are in the mood to dump the car, I might be interested, since I wrecked mine. Still drivable, but a little disgusted with the bodywork I did to get it roadable.

Well that's anther option of mine too. I'd rather have it in the hands of a Benz lover than the junkyard

Well, I'll definitely give you more for it than hauling it away on a hook, but that isn't my intent here. I would prefer to help a Benzer if you want it. Otherwise PM me, and I'll get you contact info.

I stay on the NW side of Chicago. You know anyone in the area that could do the whole engine thing for a nice price?

I know a few mechanic types. The trick is getting all the necessary stuff (engine and other necessary parts).
Is the car currently drivable to a work facility?

Why are you assuming the engine is toast, rather than some other issue?
(sorry it took so long to get back...big day today)

i told him it didnt sound like it needed an engine. could be just fuel delivery or vaccumm problem. as much as i want to get rid of my engine, i would rather help you figure the problem before drastic measures. just need to know if it has any strange clicking or knocking. i have a complete engine removal process on another forum.
