I am trying to identifiy the particular engine of a euro 280e that was manufactured and imported into the US in 1983. It has an attached metal Federal standards tag in the driver's door post certifing that it met Federal standards and includes the name of the person that imported the car.

The number stamped in the engine block, front driver side of engine, is 110 988 12 022086. I have noted the 280E engine numbers are suppose to be 110.994 so this is even more confusing.

VIN WDB12303312115280

I need to order a "Warm-up Regulator" which requires knowing whether the engine is in engine series -066010 or -066011.

Mercedes has identified the "Warm-up Regulator" part as number 110-070-02-62 "Enrichment Compensator"

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Kent

Last six digits are the serial number.

The engine numbers 110.XXX were for either the Carbureted or Fuel injected which also came in two compression ratios which all had different engine numbers. Sorry don't know which numbers are for which engine, but I know they altered compression ratios in 1978.

280E

My Technibooks manual says 110.923 is a 280 and 110.984 is a 280E.

If you're ordering a warm-up regulator that suggests you have a cold start problem. I did something similar on my 230TE and eventually traced the problem to a duff fuel-pump relay - so try that!
