I'm looking for a reputable source from which to purchase a rebuilt engine for my 69 280SL. My existing block needs replacing, and I'm considering Bud's Benz in Georgia. Suggestions? I'm located in Vancouver, BC.

Thanks in advance,

Just got a catalog in the mail from Adsit, and they carry a wide variety of MB longblocks.

2001 CLK430 Cabriolet (71K) - Wife's car
2005 BMW 645CI (124K) - My daily driver

Be careful with Adsit. Read their "warranty policy" very closely and you'll see what I mean. Makes you feel all "warm and fuzzy" just reading something like that.
I don't know if Metrics in CA does those or not, but they were once a good source for good rebuilts. The other choice is to buy a used engine or block and have someone local (that you trust)build it. Atlanta Stutgartt is a good source for used stuff in the SE US. Or you could try Aurora Auto in Seattle,WA.

you could also check I think thats the address for parts off wrecked cars and such.

My brother has had good luck with getting some parts for his range rover from their british parts division.
