Hello to all my fellow Mercedes enthusiasts! I have been a member of the site for a while, but never made a proper introduction and background post.. So... Here goes nothin!
I originally had no Idea what I had heard about, an E420, but had to go look as it was being sold for $1,000 US.. Full story short, hadn't been started in 3 years, 1994 E420.. But, it has potential..... The car was sitting on 4 flat tires and had a completely dead battery..
Bought a new battery, my first purchase in this project, 5 gal. premium gas, and a can of Seafoam...... The car started and purred like it had been cruised earlier that day... no miss... no shudder... no engine light... WOW!
Looking around prior to this I found the paperwork... 1 owner, a doctor, purchased new in 1994, fairly good service record log with receipts... I opened my wallet and handed the seller $1000 cash and she was mine, a paint burnt slightly dented and dirty 94 E420.
Let me tell you what, this is the nicest riding running car I've ever had, until the water pump went out. Some of you saw that one coming a mile away I know. So, Benzworld has been a huge resource for me in research and knowledge about the w124 in general and the m119.. Thankyou so much and hope that I continue contribute to the site as much as I have used it to help me in the repair process... Doubt it but I'll try. The car has been down for over 18 months. I have purchased all new parts, gaskets, found a proper mechanic, and now the motor is almost finished.. Look for the pictures soon! ( I rebuilt the intake myself ) Cant wait for all of you to see my rebuild finished, and think you will approve...
thanks again,
