Can I delete the egr and smog pump off a 1975 450sl?
Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.

Hi, yes you can delete the EGR and smog pump from the SL. Neither of these systems will affect the engine running. You should check with your state emissions testing office but I don't believe there are any states in the US that require emission testing for a 75 SL.

Let me know if you have any questions.

We have a 1972 350 Sl we want to put a howell gm tbi in place of the Bosch we put a petronics points conversion to act as cam sensor will it work with a wet intake manifold
Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.

I think it will probably work fine. I've never converted one but I know a lot of guys use the Megasquirt system to convert from the D-Jetronic system.

Hi, I'm just following up with you on the Mercedes. I never received credit from the website because you never rated my service. Are you satisfied with my help on this question?
