hello guys

3 yrs ago I did nice and tidy engine swap considering my w126 coupe
V8 to OM617a and I m more than satisfied...

as I have chance to buy cheap 1998 ML 320 with blown engine I m considering options swaping OM603 and transmission in it..

well,..this is nothing like my previous swap so I m interested in engine size,will
I have enough space for om603 and tranny and what about front steering linkage,will those be in the way somehow....

If you guys have some "bottom of the ML" pictures it will be great help
to try understand space and maneuver options for future swap...

om603 has mechanical IP so the electronics considering starting has to
be of (airbags,abs...) I m not sure....

I guess that I have to override 4matic transfer case... (rear diff is 3.07 so its mated fine with 603...)



w126 500SEC gen II euro, powered by OM617 turbo stolen from 84 300SD 2.88 diff,EGR blinded
next wish/project: w114 coupe OM603 powered
