124 240D. Dealer crate engine.

FYI: 1984 240D replacement engine from OKC Mercedes dealer.
Engine ran for 38,000 miles before the driver seat fell through the floor.

Hi gang...do you think I was being unreasonable to stick to my $1000.00 for a Mercedes Factory crate engine ??

Buyer declined, offering $800.00. I just wasn't in the mood to take it being as I had to lift out the engine and pallatise it too.

No, that is totally reasonable. A grand for a nearly new engine? Anybody who thinks that's too much is unreasonable.

I have warranty papers/documents from Mercedes and engine number matches, the speedo was working and logged 38,000 miles since install.

I ran it up for him too and he agreed it sounded solid.
Mercedes crate motors arrive complete with I/P and everything to run. So it is better than an overhaul.

Glad someone else thinks this was a reasonable price.

You need to build some fat into the asking price. Everybody wants a deal. Give them one by pricing it $250 above what you will take for it.

I had to ask $3,250 and got $3K, for a motorcycle that I only wanted $2,750 for.

There is no such thing as a 1984 240D, at least not for the US market. 1983 was when US production ended.

84? 124? I assume 124 is a misprint? and you mean a 123? Where is this engine, and is it really a 616?

Maybe offer it for 950 and he helps you pull it?

What you paid and what it's worth are completely separate issues.

Exclamation I Missed

The original post with the location...... .

It sounds like a deal to me ,if it's a OM616 but you may have to wait a bit for the loonie (like me) to come out of the wood work as the engine equals the value of an average running 240D sad to say .

I'm interested , depending on location .
