Thanks for the tip to check the coolant return. I will replace the seal there before proceeding. Having spent nearly 10 years of my life building formula ford and super vee engines I am not the least bit intimidated by replacing the headgasket on this car myself. The last headgasket I replaced on a personal car was a BMW with the 2.5 M50 engine which is more complex (dual cams/variable timing) than the MB M103. That car went 28,000 miles (with zero problems) after I replaced gasket before I sold it so I think that I obviously didn't screw it up. Also have the necessary tools, torque wrenches, torque angle gauges, etc. So, back to my original question, is there any thing abnormal or exceptional about replacing the headgasket on this engine?
