the 250C had an I6 sohc motor. which the early 280 C carried too.
Then came along (mid 1973) the M110 a DOHC motor and completely different.
What you may have is a cylinder head from a w108 280S (not a w116 body, which had the m110 motor).
What I know is, that the M130 motor (I think that's the internal #) ran hot, because of the smog equipment etc., so a lot of these heads have been shaved over and over.
Looks like you're in warm territory ?
It may also be that the PO or his 'mechanic' jumped timing on the timing chain or the like when reassembling it, that the distributor or the cam is off by one or two teeth....
I am in A.V. , North L A county line.
how about a video on youtube, that would be the fastest way to diagnose from afar ...
