Default w116 parts on a w107

Hi guys

Ive got a 1976 280sl and im finding it hard to get engine parts for it.

I've found a w116 1975 280se that runs well. Im no mechanic but it all looks the same to me. Would it be possible to use the M110 engine parts in the w116 on my w107? Things like the distributor, module etc?

Thanks

Hi Sl280, what engine parts are difficult to come by - however, I would imagine many parts would be interchangeable. I am sorry that I can't be any clearer as I am not relly familiar with the six cylinder engines in the various models. Regards Styria

I know of a W126 280 SE that had it's M110 engine replaced with a rebuilt engine from a W116 280 SE that was written off in an accident. It looked to be a simple task to swap the good engine into the W126. Although the swap was successfully completed, it proved to be no easy task.

The main problem areas proved to be engine mounts, exhaust manifolding, where big modifications had to be made, and a customised propshaft required.

it is things like the air box (which is the same) - dizzy, module, A/C condnsr, and other type parts - i am not doing a wholesale swap - but if i can buy a whole car with the same engine and keep it for spares i'd imagine i may save some money?

after sitting idle for 3+ years im finding it hard to get her started.
