I don't know that engine, but I can immediately think of a couple of things; the mechanic has left an external oil feed pipe disconnected (unlikely as you have good pressure and haven't reported a leak), or the mechanic has fitted the head gasket incorrectly and it is blocking an oilway.

If its the M115 engine there are removable steel balls that seal the main oil ducts. Maybe you have lost a ball ? ;) Try asking your mechanic if there is any possibility this might have happened I'm thinking principally of the one at the front of the engine not the 2 at the rear? http://www.tglmarketinginc.com/mbfo...e/W123/w123CD1/Program/Engine/M115/01-130.pdf


Here's a diagram of the OILWAYS on m115 engine

as above, presumably a 115 engine - my guess is headgasket upside down.
