Post 72 300sel 4.5 and 73 450sl

Hello and thanks for the site. I just bought these two beauties, all original and in great condition. I live in northern california, about 50 miles north of san fran, and am looking for a mechanic. When i was in southern california, i used silver star (gerhard) and had no worries. I could really use some advice. thanks much,
Hal

Eric,

I think i found the thread now. I appreciate anything you can do. I am very mechanically inclined, and since both my engines are 4.5, maybe i should learn. Nonetheless, a trusted mechanic is mandatory. I would rather drive a long distance than to chance it. Incidentally, are the 450sl engine and the 300sel 4.5 engine exactly the same? Where can i get the full and complete service manual(s). I need some a'c work on the 450sl and also need to install a state of the art sound, electronics system. I can use all advice and guidance. Thanks much

Hal
