    I've just bought a very nice condition 450SL but the engine is poor. Before having it rebuilt at Crewe engines, just thought I'd find out if anyone has a good secondhand one for sale?

    Crewe Engines may be able to get one for you.

    Would that be a 119 maybe one from a 140 if there is a 450 in that range

    Thanks for the replies. Yes Crewe engines can rebuild mine and I will do that if I can't find a very good s/h unit. It needs to be from the 107 series unless the S class 450's of the period were the same (1980)
