I finally decided to repair the leaks in the engine and transmission of my 1970 280 SE Coupe (M130 engine). Does anybody know where I can get gaskets and seals for the engine, gear box, steering box and steering pump? I will be visiting the States by the end of July and could have them delivered to a friends address. Thanks in advance for your help.
Engine - I don't know - Mercedes?
Gear box - manual or automatic? Mercedes? If automatic, are you having the transmission rebuilt?
Steering box - I have not heard of this leaking but often they wear with age. Kind of a problem if there is any slop in the steering
Steering pump - getting the pulley off is difficult. Replacing the pump is easy after that. I think autohausaz.com has a replacement pump and maybe the replacement gaskets if you just want that.
Sounds like a lot of work!
