w120 OM636 engine and transmission

Here are pictures and data of a used w120, OM636 engine with matching transmission I sold.

I believe this was from a 180D which was made from 1953-1958 .

Yesterday, I cleaned the beast off, removed the old fuel filter, put fresh diesel in it.

I tested the glow plugs, by applying ground to the block and 12volts to the #4 glow plug supply wire, and it completed the electrical circuit.

What was left of the original gauge panel went with the engine & transmission.

The oil gauge was connected to the oil pressure sender, until the rubber hose broke.

I changed the engine oil prior to attempting to start.
I also sucked out as much old oil as possible from the injection pump and added fresh.

Here is what I know or have been told:
  • Engine and transmission were pulled from a running rustbucket in southwest Indiana.
  • The crank turns.
  • The water pump turns.
  • Came with two belts but they are way past their life.
  • Fan has one broken blade.
  • Injection pump works.
  • Motor data plate was on the engine; however I could NOT get a shot of it with my cell phone.

I have several trips planned, so delivery is possible. I will be happy to strap tightly to palet and wrap with plastic for shipping. In addition, I will load into your pickup, trailer, or onto your shipper's vehicle.
