W124 Engine Removal w/photos

So I've decided to pull the engine and see what's wrong. Think it's a spun rod bearing. I'll be posting photos of the process for anyone who might be interested. I've pulled the radiator, power steering pump so far. Taking it slow and methodical. Don't want to make any mistakes. Going to pull the tranny too. I'm taking the crank down to Castillo's in La Mirada, CA. Pretty sure it will need welding on one journal. May have to pull the head if the rod is damaged, (they almost always are). If so, I'll do some head work too. Wondering if I should replace the rings while it's apart or leave them alone. Had good compression, no smoke or oil consumption. Stay tuned. This is way more of a project than I want to tackle, but times are tough.
