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,
Steve

Just got a catalog in the mail from Adsit, and they carry a wide variety of MB longblocks. http://www.adsitco.com

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.
Regards,
Randy D.

you could also check http://www.silverstarrecycling.com 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.
