Looks like it dropped a valve or 12 along the way.
Certainly the wrong engine if your going to transplant something of a heavy oil kind.
Cries out for an OM612 2.7 LITRE 5cylinder motor imho
Now there is a thought. (Shouts) Mr Walker! - How you fixed.
Off to find a 2.7 engine.
The om603 is a lovely engine!
Indeed, why anyone would want to bin one for a cdi is beyond me.
I was chatting to a bloke outside MB Whitefield's parts dept who had a diesel 123 coupe. He said the original engine packed up along time ago and the previous owner fitted a diesel instead.
Fuel economy wasn't great, performance wasn't great and it sounded like a tractor, not sure why you'd do it
Mostly just to wind Mr Walker up
The real project will be a G Wagen (old one) with some sort of Mercedes (of course) turbo engine in it.
My om603 turbo take about 0.7l/10km and my M103 take 1l/10km. And the diesel engines you only change oil every 10000km and just keep going. So no expensive services need to be done.
Especially a 5 cylinder one....
Because they're an easy swap (a mornings work), and the early (pre 102) engines were a bit hopeless.
seems illogical to transplant such a slow engine into that car!
With a day and 14 hours to go it is currently on at £720, some people must like it and no I'm not bidding.
I bet it was still running he original gearbox and differential, hence the low economy.
If the CE in the ebay advert has been done properly it will be a really nice car.
An OM606 turbo with appropriate gear ratios would be ideal, quick, quiet, smooth, reliable and reasonably economical.
