New to BenzWorld -some Qs about the car I want

Hi All,

I've been lurking here a bit and really need to step it up now. I have the opportunity to purchase an '86 560SL for my dad. It needs a bit of mechanical work, but body and ineterior are flawless (I can't believe the condition of the leather, NO wear at all).

It needs a waterpump as the current one is leaking. There's a very slight leak in the rear main seal, and it needs a new trans pan gasket. All fairly minor stuff, just need to find out the prices to get some of this work done. I DIY a lot of stuff on my other cars, and I'm contemplating doing waterpump and Trans pan myself. Let me know any thoughts you may have on this, or estimated cost of the work (Philadelphia area).

I'm really excited to be here, I use the forums for all my other rides and find there are a wealth of amazing info - people who love their cars, helping others with the same interest. Hopefully in time I'll be able to add and help the community myself.

Try looking in the roadster section for your 560SL. The actual owners are the most likely members to help with the specifics. Welcome to BW.
