Don't mind the ugly exhaust, changing that to twin pipes next time I have the rear end out for the 3.06 swap.



All vehicles in the photo are diesel.

Never seen an R107 with an OM617. Did you do the conversion? What prompted the conversion? I think the 1985 380SL was past the single-row timing chain fiasco.

If this thread means diesel engines, some might be interested in my mod's. When I installed a 1982 engine in my 1985 CA car, I kept the frame-mounted air filter, cutting the housing outlet 1.5" shorter to match the lower turbocharger inlet. I later did the same in my 1984 300D, using a junkyard air filter housing. No more fussing with cracked air filter brackets and more access for get hands to the R side of the engine. I stack 2 cheap Wix filters, rather than pay $45 for the "correct" air filter. Instead of the 1985CA "drain oil mist into turbo inlet" design, I run a tube from a Tee over to the drain tube which was under the air cleaner. I could run a hose straight down to the stub on the oil pan, but this was easier.

After this photo, I rerouted the H.P. AC hose and tubing directly to the condenser, as the factory might have. I also removed the nonfunctioning EGR valve and controls, using Rollguy's block-off plates, so now better access to the alternator bolts.

It's physically different from the Garret T3 .

IMO obvious .

It's slightly smaller too so it spools up faster .

The wastegate adjustment is 10MM A.T.F. nut and screw, dead easy to adjust compared to the T3 where you must remove a flat spiral locking ring before making adjustments .

I can see it now, the wastegate actuator is also perpendicular to the axis, whereas the T3 is parallel. You learn something new every day!

Post I'll Give This A Try....

Shern ;

Your car looks beautiful .

That looks like Frasier Park or that area .

Here's (hopefully) my 1982 240D Stripper :

I got up early yesterday and washed it before the sun came up :

I even gave the engine a quick cleaning, only the power steering pump weeps a little bit these days :
