i have an 85' 190 with a 2.3 and automatic trans. The engine needs a complete rebuild and the trans does also. As you guys know it would take alot of money to get this fixed. I could do the right thing and get it done but i would love to put a ford 302 in it with a manual trans. I know i would have to upgrade a few things like drive shaft, rear end, and stiffer springs. I was wondering if any one knows of anybody who has done this and how well it went. thanks for any help given. [?]

There have been a few American engine/trans swaps done successfully. Theres a member on mercedesshop.com who has done it, do a search on there. Theres also a member on cardomain.com who has done a chevy small block swap.
