Lying on the concrete floor shouldn't be that much time... I found that the removal of the engine/trans from my 280S and install into 250S wasn't that horrible and mostly above the car. Nice that you have webers. I had those on my 250S. Are you going to increase the displacement? Or is that taboo on MB engines...
Having the engine / trans out for a period of time makes it easy to access other things you might want to replace. Be careful not to leave the car suspended in the air for a long time with front wheels unsupported - not good for the subframe mounts.
