Fuel Injection Pump

The engine on the 220 SEB 1965 has not been run for at least 5 years, I was wondering if I should take it apart, clean and lubricate it before I try to start it up.

What oil should I use?

Thank you.

Ok. Do you mean completely take the pump apart? Any instructions on how to?

Thank you.

I read that the best oil to use is Mobil 1, is this correct?

Your engine was designed for conventional oil, and the use of synthetic at this stage WILL cause oil leaks.

Do not disassemble your injection pump; they are calibrated, and you run a good chance of causing problems if you do so [assuming that you can get things back together properly...]

Fresh engine oil would be a good idea. The pump is internally lubricated by engine oil and by the fuel. These days a lead substitute additive would be a good idea as unleaded fuel is very hard on the pump and over time, will cause accelerated wear.

Thank you again.

Do I have to add the oil to the pump, or is the pump supplied for the engine oil pump/circuit?

Actually, later engines supply oil to the injection pump. There is an oil dip stick at the bottom rear of the IP and the oil level can be checked. I would suggest you change the oil.

I'd like to suggest you get the repair CD's for your car.

Classic Technical Literature

The ones you want have the Ponton data and the W111 data as well. The W111 manual sections build on the Ponton manual.

You also want the technical booklet because it has ALL the measurement data for the car. Don't leave home with out them.

For example:

Classic Technical Literature

Also, get the spare parts table which has the assembly view drawings for your car and helps to orient yourself to the car's construction and parts used.

There are many towns and cities named Berlin here in the USA, but none as famous as yours. One day I will get there and see your beautiful city.
