post up what your project is... I'm always dreaming of a Merc/sbc adapted
rig..

http://www.transmissionadapters.com/Mercedes%20diesel.htm

Also http://www.4x4labs.com but I think their site is not up yet.. they are shipping adapters now I heard after 4 years or more of waiting.

price seems to be about the same IIRC

That's a small engine for a heavy truck. I am putting an OM617 5cyl turbo into a Ford Courier, using a Ford small block pattern 5speed. You can redrill the flywheel that goes with the transmission to fit the Mercedes engine, then figure out how thick of a plate you need and make your adapter.
There is a forum on 4btswaps.com specifically for the OM617 engine, there's been a few interesting swaps on there. I'll be posting my build thread there as time and money allow. I'll probably start really getting after it next month, I am wiring up an EJ22 swap in my car right now, so I don't have any time, money or space for the diesel swap right yet.

One of the conversions I've liked the most is a 617 into an old Jeep FC with a camper on the back. I think there's a thread here somewhere with pictures.

Here's the build thread:

sounds like his flex disc shreded.
be interesting to see pictures of the engine, and how he shoehorned it in there.
