I do have a 190D in my fleet, but this engine I am talking about is from a different car. My father and I bought this car for parts originally. I have already sold a lot of parts, used some on my car and towed away the stripped chasis.
The engine did not run well on testing. It was loud and shaking. I will keep the transmission. However, I am running out of space where I live so I need to let go of the block. I have NO CHOICE.
What can I do with this block? Will it be worth some coin for scrap metal? I really rather see a Mercedes guy have it. You know, someone that can use it in some way. I hate to see it destroyed.
I am all ears for any suggestions. I do not live in a house where I can simply store it in some shed in the yard. I live in an apartment so keeping something like this is very difficult. I kept it for many years already and cannot do more.
This is from a California car, so no rust belt stuff to worry about.
