Did the GenII 560 RUF high compression come with the 2:65 LSD?
On my wrecking yard trips in the past, I had made it a habit to look for LSD. US 560 LSD were 2.47, but Euro cars usually had 2.24 i think.
I know the W116 6.9 came with a 2:65 LSD, that should fit perfectly into a Gen i car.
The Gen II differential has different housing and mounts, but the innards between Gen1 and 2 are the same and can be swapped.
David, what was the rear end on your Gen II Japan 560SEC ?
Also, from looking at quite a few M117 engines with heads off, it looks like the top of pistons indent for the 2 valves are a single rectangle.
I have looked at HV high compression engines where pistons had 2 round indents over the valves
