Did they put a .910 in the W123?

Does it have the high mount tubular intake and the steel canister oil filter mounted down low and near the front?

no to the oil filter and it has the non W115 style NA intake that mounts horizontally. if you have a blown engine or parts you should be able to swap it over. the block castings for all the .91X engines should be the same. it is a 617.912.

Negative on the .910 and .912 blocks being the same. He'll need a .910 if he wants to keep the same oil filter setup and power steering.

i have a few old style 240's with the remote ps reservoir and the filter and the ps bracket uses the same bolt pattern as the R-4 compressor mount on the later turbo 617's. not sure about the oil filter housing but i wasn't aware it was different at least on the block side.

Unfortunately this is true.

I have .912 and .910 sitting side by side on the shop floor at this moment and

they are not compatible.

Thank you R-3350 for the offer and Delivery Valve for the clarification.

I will keep shopping. If either of you happen to discover a .910 please keep me

in mind.

Kind Regards

Yes Sir unfortunately that's the deal breaker when it comes to swapping a

.912/.951 into the W115 chassis because the filter housing interferes with

the brake booster.

Saddest thing ever otherwise almost every W115 240D/3.0 would be

sporting a later model turbo engine right about now...

I'm relatively new to all this but learning as I go. Typically I prefer to remain

purist for just these reasons.

So..just like a 6 year old that just wants his two front teeth...

All I want for christmas is a .910 (or hopefully before then)

Scrappy, you can get a remote oil filter setup for the .912 and .95x. Many people swap these motors into different vehicles that require relocation of the oil filter. Those kits are out there, just need to do a search if you want to go that route.

If you get the relocation plates, I suggest getting them made out of aviation grade alum. It's strong as steal yet easily machined.

I have considered designing adapters on Solid Works and machining them here at work.

I know I can turn out a decent adapter.

But Mercedes engineers are much greater than I and I just like marveling at their work when I lift the hood...without any messy distractions
