Hi Guys! Thoughts on '85 380sl accelaration prob???

Hoping for help here ... I have an 85 380sl which had 134k miles on it when i blew the engine (D'oh!). Just had another engine dropped into it and it is 'sluggish' at acceleration and at top-end ... okay maybe not even at top-end ... it is sluggish upon accelaration and then at about 60mph. Any thoughts??? Also, radio and dashboard lights are not working so i imagine it is a fuse. Can anyone tell me which fuse i need to replace, or better yet, does anyone have a diagram of fuse box? I am at work now and have not looked in the manual for the layout - maybe it is there? Anyway, thanks in advance for the info.! [:I]

Post in the r107 forum – you’ll get more replies – I’d talk to the people you bought the engine from…[:(!]
