A Holley of any sort would be an improvement. My buddy Hans had to
deal with them all the time in Germany, said they were horrible, even
the factory tech couldn't get them right.
The M110 wasn't bad itself, other than being rather fuel hungry and
terribly noisy due to solid lifters. More fiddly that the other
single overhead cam Benz engines, but robust. Not a bad engine with
fuel injection (either D-Jet or K-jet, depending on year).
Terrible mileage in all applications, though, mainly due to the really
low rear ends (atypically 4.00:1 for gassers). The M110 spins silly
fast, but gearing it for 6600 rpm at 125 mph results in horrible fuel
consumption. Low teens is typical with the carb, mid teens with FI.
