Answers :

The ABS system on Mercedes ( or for any car) is an important safety feature. On many Mercedes the ABS module is associated with the Over Voltage Circuitry (OVC) module whose function is closely integrated with the Engine Control Unit (ECU) electronics; this in turn governs the timing and injectors. For instance if I remove the 10amp fuse from my OVC unit, effectively disabling it, I get an ABS warning light and the car runs very unevenly when idling. If I drive the car with this fuse out I have no ABS and when I put the brakes on to slow to a stop the engine will often cut out. Note also that there if the ABS function is not perfect there is the real risk that once triggered the ABS will not disengage from the brakes.\015\012I think that trying to put a carburettor engine unit into a body that previously had an injected unit in it will be a very difficult job. Much better would be to find the correct engine type and keep as original as possible. You risk not having a fully operational ABS braking system and this is just too risky from a safety stand point
