To WG, Glad to hear you are about to start putting your engine back together.The last engine I rebuilt was a 1982 300D-Turbo last summer. My machine shop bill was $170. That included removing old sleeves,installing new sleeves and boring to fit new std. size pistons. Of course they thourghly cleaned the block. I spent about $1200 on the engine. The head was in good shape so I didn't have to spend money on it. The injection pump was good so I didn't replace it. I did rebuild the turbo(it was bad). Parts for it cost $22.63 and that included shipping.The car runs great. I'm driving it on a 200 mile trip tomorrow and I have great faith in it. Have fun putting you engine together, just don't despair.
Let me know if I can be of any more help. Glad to lend a hand. Merry Christmas.
