Question Replacing a head gasket on a 91 300E

I need information on where I can find a repair manual that goes into all the detail necessary to replace a head gasket on my M103.

A link on where I can purchase it or perhaps someone would like to sell me one? Have heard the MB cd's are a good source, but need to make sure.

BYW - Has anyone changed a head gasket on a M103 and could give me pointers?

Thanks in advance,

Jim

This post is kind of late, but I also own a 1991 300e and am in need of instructions on how to replace the head gasket.

Is there a way you could email me the info also?

Thanks,

The pictures are strictly from an m103, but if you would like I can send them to you.

data on m103

Hi Guys,

I have to replace the head gasket on my 91 300CE in the next few days. I've been monitoring the engine for 6 months since I bought the car and just topping up the coolant as necessary.

But now the cooling system is getting pressurised, various hoses are leaking one at a time and the car is starting to overheat. I have just noticed oil in the coolant today!! I've been expecting this day. It has 152,000 miles.

I'm going to dismantle and inspect as i have the time, (leave from work) and may as well give the head anything it needs. Would one of you people be so good as to forward me the above information on the 103?

Thanks in advance

Gerard

I believe the '91 300 CE has the 104 engine. Not sure though.

Good luck

Yes I keep reading about Mercedes changing to the 104 in 89 but they must have made a few with 103s after that.
Its the M103 in mine alright, its definitely only got one cam under the rocker cover!! It was registered early in 91, so maybe it hung round a salesroom for a long time.
