W108 280se engine head swap
The 280s block has no provision for the oem mechanical FI pump.
The 280se head could work on a 280s block but you will need to plug the injector ports and may require an adapter for the heater hose outlet.
To clarify... It looks like you are saying that maybe the 280se (injected) head might be able to work on a 280s engine block, but in a carburetor setup, not a fuel injected setup. Correct?
If the oem mechanical fuel pump is the only issue with using a 280s lower end in a 280se, might you be able to simply use and an electric fuel pump? Too dangerous?
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
