Re: 602 5cyl 300d merc engine into SFA replacing original 4Y

Well done.
It is true. Those engines can do one million km before breakfast. The metal used for all the components are for me the hardest , best quality , of all the manufacturers. Closest to them is Volkswagen , but not really as good.

Thanx for the encouraging words Tony. I think there comes a time during any rebuild that one just have to have the dissiplin not to get into a rush or a general state of frustration. At times I really enjoy friends and family support and at other times they tend to get in the way of things. Ballance.
