I posted a few days ago about cracking the sump/pan on my 1993 190E 2.6.
I just got the bad news from the dealer and the insurance company--the
engine has to be replaced. That's not just the dealer's conclusion as
the insurance people had it checked by their own guy and he agrees.
There are limits to what the insurance company (State Farm) will pay,
considering the value of the car. I, of course, want to keep the car,
since it is otherwise in superb condition. The repairs obviously will
be very expensive and the insurance company will want to total
the car rather than have it repaired.
So, question is, where can I get a quality long block (other than
Mercedes)? The engine number is 103942.
