Hello from South Africa

Greetings everyone. I have been on this forum for a few months, but never introduced myself. I am from a small town called Howick in KwaZulu Natal, about 100km from Durban.

Currently it is very hot here, (Hottest part of summer now) days in the region of 30 to 38 deg.

I run a workshop in the area that specializes in German cars.

Currently I run 3 Benzes, 1984 W123 200, 1991 w124 200E, 1994 w140 S500.

Thank you folks! I find this forum most helpful. The people here seem to happily give of their knowledge. It is really a good place to be.

I must mention in closing that I took the S500 out the other day for a trip to Durban for a meeting. On the way back I smelt burning. After stopping 3 times and searching I finally found the culprit. As I lifted the rear seat I saw a mass of glowing and sparking wires at the vacuum pump...
