Losing faith in my project! Suggestions?
Started off really promising. 1975 230, not a real popular model but really straight, no rust, bone stock, overall decent looking and really workable condition. Once I got into the engine it went downhill.
Problem is the mechanicals. It needs a cam, rockers, timing chain & related parts and a valve job The cam I tracked down but it's hard to find parts for the car. Guess there weren't enough of them to warrant any aftermarket.
The only options I see would be to cut and run now, part out the car and recover some of what I've spent. Other option would be a transplant.
Just don't know how else to keep this car on the road without putting way too much money into it. Are there alternatives I don't know about like other MB engines that would swap with easier parts availability?
