If they replaced the engine with another M110 engine, the engine number is stamped on the top surface of the block - front corner, drivers side. A 280S should have an engine number starting with 110.922. Engine size is 2746 cc.

Confused. The guy gave you the exact engine size already. Do you have just the engine, or is it in the car, and are you suspecting it's not the correct engine? Can you post the ID number?

I believe if you use the engine number you will get the correct parts. On parts where there was a change in the production, there will be a reference "before" or "after" a certain break point for that particular part. Are you sure it's not the original engine?

Ahhhh, the plot thins. I thought it actually was an M110 motor, maybe not the original one to the car, but the same type. Well hmmmm. I'd have to double check but I think the engine number is on the block deck (top of the block) behind the cylinder head. Would you mind posting the engine number if you find it? I still think the parts dept can get you the correct parts if you just have the number, as the parts will be broken down into engine number ranges.

If you suspect it to be a 2.6 liter, it would be the M103 engine. Engine number is stamped in the block on a raised area just behind the alternator about 2 inches above the junction of the oil pan and block. Probably hard to read as it is most likely rusty.

That would depend on what engine you have.
