OM603 Disco 1

Well after seeing the Volvo diesel and om606 I figured I'd be welcome here! This truck has been a labor of love for 4+yrs getting it going. I'll try to keep it brief.

Got nice LSE 50th anniversary disco

Got nice w126 300SDL mercedes

Ruined both

Fun ensues

Been driving it for a few months now. About 1200 miles. Including one 900mile round trip.

If anyone is thinking of doing this swap, DONT.

If you're still thinking of doing it, PLEASE DONT!

If you absolutely must, a guy named GAZ FAB on Facebook sells complete adapters now for the OM606/603 I recommend him.

Mine was done by a fellow in Scandinavia about 10yrs ago, and to my knowledge was the only kit he ever sold to the U.S. and nothing fit, and I've spend the better part of the last decade measuring and machining the parts myself (which I didnt want to do!).

Ice just recently learned of the (05?) Mercedes 300CDI (om648) and the rear sump oilpan and pump will fit a 603/606 so if anyone plans on it, do that. I had to make my own.

But in the end, it worked out, I'm happy with it, and proud of the job I did.
