Vaccuum Problems, High Idle. Please Help!
Hello all, and thank you in advance for helping a mercedes newbie.
I am having some obvious issues with the vaccuum system on my newly acquired 1975 450SL Roadster. I bought it last month and it really has a high idle. I thought it was because it hadn't been run in a while and there were some fuel/intake problems. Come to find out, someone had cut a bunch of the vaccuum lines. There has to be someone out there that has a working knowledge of which lines go to what and what the "what" looks like. I have checked both manuals on the subject, yet I don't have a real clue as to what they are talking about. I am a visual person and will need someone to actually tell me exactly what lines go what and where that "what" is located. If there is such a person or a forum thread I haven't found to date that clearly spells this out for my specific model, then by all means, please point me to that person. I have done a ton of maintenance on the car already and would like to get this small problem out of my hair. I am trying to upload some pics of my system, but I think this website won't accept due to a small server or something.
PLEASE HELP!!! ANYONE!!!!
