It's a great drive train when paired with the air suspension, as in a
W109 300SE L 3.5 sedan...

 3.5L is the M116 cousin of the more common M117 in America.  Very few
 were sold here, mostly prior to 1973 due to emissions problems.

 Basically a stroker version of the M117 (or the M117 is the long stroke
 low compression version of the M116).

 Same hp and torque with a liter less displacement, higher rev limit (6200
 rpm vs 5800).

Aren't all 3.5L engines same design? - i.e. over-square?
Yes, rust... but for me and Darren in the salt arena, that 45-year old

Re: [MBZ] Another 108

2015-08-23 Thread Peter Frederick via Mercedes
Nope.  The 3.5 was the original one, but in '70 the emissions  
requirements and American driving habits resulted in the substitution  
of the 4.5L with different cams.  There are some 350 SLs around from  
1972, rather uncommon -- skinny bumpers and all.  I've seen one here  
in town a couple times, but since they were only sold for part of that  
year, they don't show up too often.


Same horsepower but a higher rev limit on the 3.5 and higher octane  
fuel requirement, I think.
