HELP! Which m110 engines are K Jet that fit the 280 SLC

Hi People,

I have a 280 SLC and I need a new engine for it, I have found a 1980 280 SE however he doesn't know much about cars and was under the impression that it was running the old injection system (would that be D Jet?) as it was imported to Australia from South Africa as they don't have the emmission controls over there that we did here.

I am hoping that its a K Jet but I have no idea how to tell the difference if I go and look at it.

Would you please be able to help me out, it would be greatly appreciated!

or if you know of a good cheap m110 engine around Brisbane.

Kind regards

1980 would be a K-Jet. If it has a fuel distributor under the air filter housing, that's all the evidence you need.
