Help me with my 72' 280SE 4.5 Please!
I have a 1972 Mercedes 280SE 4.5 and live in Garland. When I got it it would not run due to gas sitting in the tank for a couple of years. I pulled the tank, cleaned and vatted it, cleaned the filter, cleaned the fuel pump, replaced all the rubber lines going to the tank and fuel pump and reinstalled everything. I tried starting it and it ran fine except it was a bit sluggish. It ran that way for several weeks. After the very first cold spell we had the car refused to start up again?? I have tried everything including pulling trigger points and cleaning them, cleaning all contacts on fuel pump relay, cleaning switches etc. I am getting spark but no fuel now. I am getting good fuel pressure to the rails but the injectors are not firing. Any help on this would be great. I would love to be able to drive it around this spring!
