Hi I am going to be putting an Om617 (5 cyl turbo Diesel) in my toyota pickup, I pulled the engine from a 1980 300SD with 170,000 miles on it.
So i did a compression test and I wanted to see what you mercedes guys thought of the numbers:
Now before I start replacing gaskets and stuff on this engine to get it ready for the swap i wanted to see what you guys think, I could sell it and get another engine or I could run it as is.
The engine ran great with alot of power although it smoked at idle and had a rough idle, once going it moved really quickly (even tho all four calipers were siezed lmao)!!![/align]
