'72 250C cylinder head - new to Mercedes

I am new to the world of Mercedes and recently purchased a '72 250C that needs a cylinder head. The part number on the head in the car is 130 016 26 01 with 250A cast into the head to the right of the part number. For reference the block is stamped 130.923-12-015230. I have found a 1970 250C for sale that is a parts car however I have to buy the entire car to get the head. The seller stated the cylinder head on the parts car has part number 130 016 09 01 E9.0 280S7A and 130.923-12-000114 stamped into the block. Will the this '70 head from the parts car work on my '72? If it will interchange are there any differences (i.e. valve size, chamber volumes, etc.)?

Are there any charts or resources that list interchangability for these 2.8L engines?

I would rather find a good rebuildable head to purchase than an entire parts car. I sent a message to JA17 inquiring about a head as a fellow PeachParts member recommended me but for some reason my account is not showing the message as sent. Thanks for any help.

I'd check with Adsitco in Indiana. They have an extensive inventory of Mercedes parts, including rebuilt heads--good luck

With all respect to Tim, when doing business w/Adsitco a large supply of "good luck" will be of importance.

I hear lots of good things about the "classic centre in California" - they should be able to tell you if a head is suitable for a block.

From the (very very) little I know about the M130 engine it was during a time of lots of changes. From this Wikepedia page (in German) there seems to be a difference between normally aspirated and injection M130.9XX engines...

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_M_130

...whether this translates to differences in the heads - I haven't a clue...

...but look at the compression ratios - that is much more likely to a problem

Oh yeah - messaging on this forum is set as default to not copy to your sent folder. If you want to do that then go to user_cp and make the change...

Many yeas ago, I replaced the tired engine in my '72 250 sedan with one from a '70 250C. Both were M130 engines. The '70 has higher compression, and the temperature switch setup in the head for the vacuum-emissions system is different.
Neither of my engines had the smog-pump system.
I believe the heads will swap, but check with the classic center if possible.

Happy Motoring, Mark
