Tks for the info. I am obviously hoping that I don't have to make such a conversion, but, I would not shy away from the opportunity. Another nice engine is the 3.8 lt Buick. It is the same engine used originally in the Range Rover. It is light and can be tweeked substantially. There is a soon to be scrap 450slc in the next town over that I can get for nearly free. It might be worth the effort to buy it and practice a conversion on it. I don't know if there is any market for such a conversion as there is with the Jag/Chevy. I think the MB owners are probably more brand loyal than Jagers. I am going to start on a new 30x60ft. shop in the pasture behind the house. Once I get a concrete floor under me I might take on such a project.
