Anyone interested in an OM617 turbo with 200,000 and good compression?

I may be putting my hands on one soon, and am trying to see whether I pull the motor to sell it or just junk it with the rest of the vehicle.

*EDIT* I've actually received a PM and so on. I don't have the motor yet -- if I get it, I'll post something in "Parts for Sale" (after contacting people who have already responded).

There's always a market for a 617a with good compression, if no one on here needs an engine you can always try over at pirate4x4

The thread 'circlip in the pan' describes an engine with a knock. He's not to far from you. May want to pm him.

It is in a wagon, but the SLS is removed.

Neat! Sounds like a job for the more efficient and less popular OM616, though

you guys realize the 617 turbo is capable of turning a 100K generator head? most of the 75K systems only have like 45 -65HP...
