Hi Guys.
Still can't get a OM606. Contemplating fitting an OM605 but almost every one for sale at a Decent price doesn't start. If it starts it doesn't move.

1. Anyone knows the estimated cost of an OM605 overhaul from experience?
2. Is it necessary to buy an entire donor car or engine and gearbox only?
3. Which is the ideal gearbox for this conversion?
4. A few c250TD for sale swings but doesn't start. Any idea as to the possible causes for this?

Thanks

The only one that I know on this site that has overhauled a 605 is Roons and he does not hang out here too much anymore. I might see him this weekend - i will ask.

Thanks Andrew, much appreciated. Also if he is keen, please hook me up with him as I may need some guidance should I go for this conversion.
