What can it hurt to call and ask?

Worst case, drop a used engine in.
Roy, I had already called him regarding info on the head for the 617.

The response was "We don't work on engines that old".

That's why I posted the info.

If Tarzana isnt too far away for you, id reccomend them... seems that Mr. MB Motors is THE place to go for work. There are a few threads on the shopforum about this ship.. with nothing but positive notes. I believe he works on older cars too.

1995 E420
1992 BMW 525i
1984 300D Turbo sold
1993 Volvo 244 sold
1995 Volvo 944T R.I.P!
