I just became a new member nad i hope i will be enjoying this I am a big fan of Mercs, mainly the old ones to be honest. I own a 129 and 126 coupe and i cherish both of them. I have also decided to keep them for a long time and i do the repairs my self as i dont trust the mechanics in DUbai where i live now !
I might ask some of you more experienced guys for some help from time to time and would be glad to post some of my knowledge also for others to benefit from. I just changed the gasket of my 129 and it was a successful job, i learned alot in the process and if any one needs help just mention something to me. I am also repairing my 560 now as the heat in this part of the world really eats up your car.
Take care !
