any hints would be greatly appreciated.
i recently purchased a 1989 260 e for a great price... i have always been weary of " imports" although i have owned a few in the past and have done ok.. i have resolved a few issues on my new mercedes and need some info on setting the timing on mine. i know the setting is 9 btdc however i am not sure if the distributor is fixed?.. i cant seem to figure out how to loosin it off. can anyone help. also to discuss the issue at hand.. cold start is very hard.. once its going its good.. and power under 2500 is sluggish.. but after its great.. i have read a few forums and seen bad valves and such... but this motor is incrediblt silent.. no knocks. ticks or pings. would love to hit the timming and see if it resolves it. thnx
