Call Andy at Clarkson Fine Cars in Mississauga. He'll get it started no problem.
A few summers ago he had THREE R107 SL's at the same time (he may only have 5-10 cars at a time so three at once was a lot!). They were all coming out of winter storage and wouldn't start for various reasons. One had started the engine and blown rusty fuel tank bits through the fuel lines, fuel distributor, injectors, etc. He said if he knew ahead of time, he would have told them to tow it in "as is" before trying to start it, because he could have flushed the tank, had it recoated, and the car would have been fine.
So call and talk to him before you do anything.. he'll advise you on the best course of action.
He used to work at an MB dealer and has had his own shop for quite a few years. He will do it properly for you.
