Contemplating an engine swap....
and I want to get all my ducks in a row before I make a decision. And then I want to be able to get my self set up step by step so I can acquire and prepare everything before doing the swap so my girl is out of service for as little as possible.
So, I will get to it. I have come in to a deal where I can get my hands on a Mercedes-Benz OM617 for pretty much a steal. While I can fix things on my CJ and what not I am NOT familiar with what engines will fit to what transmissions etc. Pretty much what I am asking is 1. What would I have to replace to make this swap work. 2. What would I be able to use that is already on her.
I really want to do this, but it has me anxious. I don't want to get in over my head mechanically or financially.
