Working on a fixer upper 280se 4.5
I recently bought a 1972 280SE 4.5 Mercedes which was sitting out in the elements for a long while.
I put a new battery in it, replaced some battery cables, only to find that, though it was driven comparatively recently (a few months ago), it refuses to turn over and stay started for more than a half second.
I'm worried the fuel pump is not working, but I don't have a repair manual to go off of yet to begin my project.
any advice? Also, where could I get a manual cheaply? Because these parts cost an arm and a leg, so anywhere I can shave off some extra cash would be greatly appreciated.
