how much is a used engine for a 76 240D?

and what's it take to make it a manual?

I'm in the area, I could go look at it. $1000 is alot for a roller, but I'll keep an eye on it.

And someone needs to go save this one.

With any luck you could find a decent used engine for 500 to 1000. I imagine they are pretty hard to find now though. The stick swap should be in the neighborhood of 4 to 500 for the parts and if you hire it done, 5 to 600 for the labor. It requires lengthening the DS.
