1973 450sl ignition problem
My 450sl has been running pretty rich, and I figured out that while the car was running the coil was only putting out 2 volts, it was also skipping and sometimes backfiring out the intake. did some testing and suspected that maybe my condenser had gone bad. last time I fired it up i couldn't get it to rev above 1000rpm and then it just died, and now it won't start.
If anyone has any ideas that would be much apreceated. I have also been looking all over for the bosch condenser (part# 1237330203) everywhere and i can't find it. If anyone konw where i can find one or one with the same resistance spec that would be awesome, and also if anyone has the rotor cap order that would be great.
