Wanted: Usable 240D engine

Hi, my dad and I just joined Mercedes Shop. I am helping him find an engine for our 83 240D. His current working budget is $500 for a usable engine. The 240D has a solid body and the engine has lots of blowby. He knows it needs a rebuild. Does anyone know where a usable engine can be found? We are in the Chicago, IL area.

they're findable. Would you rather upgrade to a 5 cyl OM617a turbo motor? You'll need the matching transmission. check a few historical threads in the diesel section to see who's made the conversion.

Thanks

Since you're in Chicago....perhaps check this car out and sell the rest of the parts?

Thanks very much for the tip. My dad is going to see if it is still available and if we can see it this weekend.
