Once again, and easy one.....
I got myself a low miles M110 engine to put in my 77 W123 280E.
I know the engine came from a W114 series.
It was off an auto model, and will be going into my auto 123.
It does not have a flywheel, but I know where I can get one.
I do not have or cannot get access to the original flywheel.
My concern is fitting this, when this 'replacement' is not marked up
1) Is the flywheel symetrical (the Haynes manual shows one for the
auto box with slots in it, but I do not now if this is for the '123'
2.8 litre engine, and not the 110).
2) There is a mark on the crankshaft that is supposed to line up with
those on the flywheel. Should I just bolt the replacement flywheel
onto the crank and align the marks (I am assuming here that all cranks
and flywheels were marked in the same places... Is this a reasonable
3) Should I get the 'replacement' flywheel balanced (wasn't this done
4) Any other suggestions as to what to do for the best.
Any help/guidance will assist me here.
