One of my friends here in Port Moresby, PNG, has had some really bad luck. He has 2 380 SELs which the workshop managed to ruin by bending the conrods[:(!]. First on one engine and then the other one that was brought in to sort out the first one. Both heads are ok as far as he knows. Nothing available locally so I told him I would ask the question on this forum.
Does anyone know of a replacement short motor or complete engine? Vehicle details:
VIN: WDB 12603322044634.
Eng nos: 116961 and 116963.
If anyone knows of one please either pm or email to [email protected]
Thanks
Tom

NiuginiBenz,

Don't know about Papua New Guinea. Maybe something in Australia or Singapore would be closer.

However, if you or your friend can import something from the US; I have recently received quotes on along block 560 engine from:
- Metric Motors, http://www.mercedesengines.net/500s.htm
- Noel's; http://noels.com/MERCEDESBENZENGINES.htm
- Adsit; http://www.adsitco.com/catalog/default.asp?CID=298

The cost is in excess of $5,000 for US delivery. They may be able to help you out.

Thanks Axel,
will pass the information on. There should be something available in Oz but haven't found anything as yet.
