Re: I need a 350 chevy in my mercedes benz
uhh - mercedes never made a '350'... closest engine I know of would be the 560 SE/SEL/SEC motors. hows about we start from scratch here, and you tell us what model, year, and engine Mercedes you have ( and what transmission, if you happen to know). if you do the work yourself, even a 6.9 OHC V8 wont cost you $5000 to rebuild...and the Benz motors will beat the crap out of anything short of a tpi corvette motor in the power department!
also, can you be more specific in just how the motors 'raggity'...I've got a lot of Benz experience, w/ gas, and diesel engines, so depending on just whats up, i might be able to get you going for considerably less.. Just as a couple of examples: some older benze used a pair of points in the lower distributor body to conrtol the FI pulse timing..if they're pitted, or shot, the fuel mix sucks. ditto for coils & wires - many benzes CANNOT use conventional plug wires, as it screws up their ignition resistance... the 'correct' wires are expensive, and hard to get, but a Volvo coil + conventional resister wires are a cheap, and 100% effective solution........hit me with the details, and I'll see what I can come up with
