My 'New' Classic 89' 560SEC

Hello Mercedes-Benz Community, my name is Ben and I am 16 years old. I have newly acquired my 89' 560SEC from my dad's friend... It is an 'arctic white' coupe with grey/tan interior. It had been sitting in this guy's barn for about 2 years and we got the car for a cheap $700. So far we have been doing some restoring to the car including the interior, motor mounts, fuses, seals, brakes, and touching up the paint. The work has been very tedious but my dad is a very good mechanic and he can handle almost everything very well. The only problem left is to figure out how to the fix the high idle problem... We have tried cleaning the contacts of the idle control system and the fuses related plus looking for any vacuum leaks. We still haven't found the problem yet so if you could help us out--that would be AWESOME. Parts for this car haven't been cheap so aimlessly replacing parts in the engine won't help. We are almost positive the idle control valve works. Anyways just telling you I'm new here and can't wait to be driving this beautiful classic on the road soon!!!
