RE: EBay Alert Thread
That car in Utah was yanked off FleaBay. I was the high bidder and the guy sold it locally for $3,000 but I think he let is slip by for a hair lower. It looked like the bidding stopped at around $2,200. Less than 24 hours before it was yanked.

BTW -- I am looking for a loaner or something on the super cheaps for a 617 NA intake and exhaust manifold (no EGR deal). I will obviously pay shipping and throw in a free injector service. I am buying a 617 NA car on the 26th of October and I want to clean up and glaze the exhaust manifold and soda blast the intake but I cannot have the car down and out. So, I need a loaner for about 2-3 weeks. Any takers or info appreciated !

There's a burgandy 300 NA with Getrag 717.400 five speed on FleaBay right now. You can buy it for a silly price tag of $14K. I will admit the trans is worth $2K but the car for $14K is nuts ...

I'll jump on that!
I've got a set of manifolds from a '75 N/A 300D that are sitting patiently for me to finish 16 other projects that take priority. I'll happily loan them to you for injector work!
PM me and we'll work out the details.

If you need a naturally-aspirated 1979 W123 300D intake manifold (because that's what you have the air intake to go on), I can loan you one. I don't have a non-turbo 300D exhaust manifold though.

RE: EBay Alert Thread
It looks like I just really need the exhaust manifold since I can bead blast the intake and install in one day. No biggie there.

I did get 2 super-fast responses relative to the manifolds. I think I just really need a loaner or a swapper for the exhaust and even then, I think to save on shipping, the participant will need to ship to the coating place. Once I get it back from the coating place, then I could ship mine to the participant - loaner. Sounds highly convoluted at this juncture ... LOL. I am getting the car on the 26th of October so I will have to see what I go to work with first. Pretty pumped to get off fossil fuels and start burning the grease again. The past year has been a virtual waste of $2K on dino-fuels.

Yeah, dogleg w/no overdrive, same as the 190e trans except it's almost certainly got a dual mass FW and bigger output flange for larger diameter flex disc. I'd prefer this over my 717.404, but I'm happy enough and I just rebuilt mine anyway.
