Update.
I now have 4 Keihin 42mm carbs and have managed to seperate them and strip each one and on inspection it looks like they have been totally rebuilt to a very good standard, all done with thanks to one of the posters on this thread.
I would like it if someone could give me a part number for the ignition distributer that is not electronic, ie the basic vacuum operated points system one that fits the M110 2.8 engine.
All my googles give me is conversions to electronic systems.

Thanks again for all the input from all you guys.

Andy.

andy,

Data in my hands shows three Bosch numbers that were used outside Europe, i.e., National versions; it is possible that one or more of them was used in "standard" versions also.
These are points type distributors; they were used both without and with electronic ignition amplifiers, aka, switchgear.

What distributor do you have? Does it have a mechanical and vacuum advance? If so and electronic, you can use a more common ignition module and stick with electronic ignition.

Thanks again for answers. I will be under the hood tomorrow to check the distributor.
Next of the wall question.
Would a low pressure pump mounted near the carbs suck fuel through the already fitted HP pump unit, or does it have a check valve to prevent flow when the power is off.
Really meaning do I have to remove it and fit a direct feed to the LP pump.

The existing pump will need to be replaced. It's not designed to allow fuel to flow freely. Most of the in-line pumps are "pusher" pumps and aren't very efficient used as a "suction" pump. It's easy enough to adapt the stock mounting for the new pump and you can use the existing wiring as a bonus.

Thanks Mike,
I was just trying not to go through the empty 20+ litres from the tank.

I used a GM TBI to eliminate the carburetor. The carb'ed heads have no provision for fuel injectors but by using this manifold I could machine bungs into the runners, manufacture a fuel rail, add a throttle body or MFI controller, use my existing fuel set-up by upgrading to a higher pressure regulator, do a few minor wiring changes and use the MS-II ECM I now have.

Remember Mike I am living retired in Thailand and I am doing these changes from FI to carbs so I can play with this myself.
Mercedes is considered a luxury car here and on import attracts 328% tax.
Spares and parts attract a minimum of 30% ++ and that's based on the total cost including postage etc.
Those are some of the reasons I want a carb system and ignition system I can work on myself.

😆😆😆

Yes, I know. I was just brain storming for myself.

I agree with your reasoning for your project and recognize the limitations/restrictions you are facing.

If the postage/shipping wasn't so expensive I'd send you my spare M110 intake manifold gratis or perhaps arrange a swap.

When I get these carbs fitted I will have the FI manifold, fuel distributor and probably the new fuel pump etc gathering dust.

What years / type of cars are common in Thailand? This would give me some idea what you have to work with for ignition systems.

My impression would be that 60% of the vehicles are pick ups from 15 years old to new.
On the car front 99.9% are saloons from Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Ford/Mazda.
Anything old and interesting is very thin on the ground and when you see anything interesting it has a toyota engine fitted.
99% of the cars are 1200cc to 2000cc.

Just to add that in one of the local forums someone recently found an Edzel in a garage being rebuilt. If I can I'll post a photo to give you an idea of the condition most of the 'interesting' old cars are found in and are rebuilt.
