High everyone I thought I would join Benzworld and learn what I can about a car I am seriously considering for an ongoing project/toy. I played around with cars back in the late seventies and early eighties when all the muscle cars were just old cars. I get all misty eyed and my wallet hurts when I think of all the great old iron that went to the crusher in the days nbefore Barrett Jackson. Anyway I have a chance to pick up a 1993 560sl from Japan. The problem with the car is that when the car is started the guages go crazy and the engine idles in surges. After studying your fine site I think it may be a bad ground behind the guage pod. If I can be reasonably sure that is what the problem is I will make an offer on his 4000 dollar asking price. The car is otherwise mint and though it is old I think it would be a hell of a lot of fun for not too much money. Any advice or info is welcome.
