Question Bad news...please advise

Bad news....

Looks like the 380SE's timing chain broke, and now two of the cylinders have no compression.

More than one mechanic has advised dropping a replacement engine into the car. About the only rebuilder I know of for Mercedes is Adsit....any experience with them?

does anyone know of any other rebuilders or sellers of used Mercedes engines, also, that are reputable?

Also, if we end up getting a used engine for the car, would an M116 4.2 liter out of a 420SEL drop right in, and hook up to the existing accessories fine? I'm thinking 200 stock hp here in the car with that setup.......
