Something's missing - 1984 SL ---500

My son bought the car sans engine. We found one supposedly complete. Stuck it in and am almost ready to fire it up. Some part (of the EGR?) is missing on the front of the left bank exhaust. It is designed into the manifold and is a flanged hole with 2 studs protruding. I have no idea what it is. Anybody got a picture or a part number. I would really appreciate it.

Sorry....the car's an SL500

Do you mean left as in viewed from the driver's seat, or as in standing in front of the car?

From the driver's seat would be the generally accepted method.

It is certainly not an '84 450SL. Do you know what the engine number is?

Here's a pic of my 1984 380, If this is the area, it's also your EGR valve..:D

Thanks Rowdie.....my boy tells me it's an SL 500 and the motor supposedly came out of a 1984 500SEL? The pics from Rockcrusher seem very close. Anyway, we don't have the piece (s)...so will need to know what to get.
Thanks,
Bill
