The short block for trucks from Mercedes-Benz.

With a genuine remanufactured short block from Mercedes-Benz, you receive a high-quality, affordable replacement option. That means that your Mercedes-Benz truck remains a true original – even with high mileage and a tight budget.

A genuine remanufactured short block – replaced without breaking your budget.

The short block is a repair option with plenty of potential for savings and makes a good alternative to replacing the entire engine. The short block is around 60% cheaper than replacing the complete engine. Recycling various components is good for the environment. Certain engine components, such as cylinder heads and the fuel injection system, can be used again after engine damage. This makes the short block a cost-effective option.

In addition to the short block, we offer other repair options to suit a range of preferences. One is the long block. This can be replaced quickly and affordably if there are still plenty of operational components in the engine. There is also a remanufactured engine, which is a worthwhile investment if you need your truck to be ready to go again as soon as possible while maintaining a high standard of quality.

The short block is available as a Mercedes-Benz genuine part for selected variants of the OM457, OM500 and OM900 engine model series.

The Mercedes-Benz Engine Portfolio at a Glance.

Remanufactured engines that suit every requirement and budget.

The benefits of a truck short block as a replacement option.

Thanks to its rapid availability and thus reduced non-operational time, the short block is impressively cost-effective, based on its starting price.

Operational engine components such as cylinder heads, the injection system and many other detachable components, can be carried over from your used engine. When you purchase a short block, you will be reimbursed at an attractive rate for your used part, which is even better for your budget.

Its functionality, longevity and quality will meet even the most exacting requirements. This has been proven in extensive inspections and endurance tests, which is why a Mercedes-Benz short block comes with a guarantee of up to two years2). The basic engine is therefore the practical option for all customers on a limited budget.

The short block – sprucing up your engine to new-part standard.

All rotating component parts, such as the crankshaft and camshaft in the crank assembly, are finely balanced in line with the latest state of the art for new parts. In addition, the short block is particularly notable for its excellent reliability and durability, as all wear parts and small parts from the short block are replaced with Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts.

Limited friction on the pistons and shafts also ensures very smooth running and fuel efficiency for the engine. During remanufacturing, all valve guides are entirely replaced, and valve seat rings are reworked to the dimension of the new part, improving the engine's longevity.

Find out for yourself and ask your Mercedes-Benz service partner about genuine remanufactured engines from Mercedes-Benz for your truck.
