So, would the 93 SDL with the 6cyl 3.5 Turbo be OK? or still be in danger of being a "rod bender" motor?Tony - every model has it's strengh and it's weaknesses. Assuming you're going to go diesel, you want to avoid the OM603 engine (turbo charged, 6 cyl) in the 86/87/1991 124/126 chassis - the 86/87 can suffer from head trouble (if the updated head isn't installed) and the 91 350sdl can suffer from block issues. Please note which MB's I have.... (an 87 and a 91) - they are very nice to drive, and have enough power, but aren't as good as.....
Shoot me a PM if you want any more info - i'm happy to share any of my knowledge about finding the best MB (at least IMO)
