Kav, for that first, gummed up piston, how does the head look? Perhaps this is the source of your rattling?

Head is at the shop to refresh it by checking all the surfaces, install new valve guides and manifold bolts

The guy quickly looked at the head and said is in fantastic shape

Here is the engine lift and fed more parts painted

Looking really good! With all of the work you are doing on this car, you will have to keep it and pass it on to the kids/grandkids.

Keep the pictures and progress coming.


When I cleaned my alternator I took it apart, there is a bearing that is replacable in there, also, I pulled out the old grease and replaced with new.

Garage
you can soda or sand blast parts clean. there is paint avail to make it look like bare metal. Eastwood Detail Gray Paint - Stamped Steel Appearance
or you can paint whatever color you want.

Don't take my question as a criticism, painting is a great option that I'm considering myself!

Thanks,

Further update.
i got my carbs back from a complete rebuild and boy am i glad i didn't do this on my own.
Few items on the carbs:
he cleaned them in few chemical baths and final coating bath.
brass and few other metalic parts were cleaned via ultra sound cleaner.
an idle needle was missing on one and few membranes were gone.
bottom plastic plate had crack and he said it was leaking air without a doubt.
bench tested and all positioned properly according to the rebuilder.
took him two weeks to finish them (probably didn't work on them all the time).

He said whoever had this car did all properly as these were the cleanest carbs he ever had to rebuild, (29 years in business).

I am very pleased with how they turn out but off course the final test is when i install them on the engine.

Thanks,

I don't think they're the same.
I believe the 250SE had an M129 fuel injected motor, (a continuation of the M127 (220SE and 230SL) motors).
UNLESS , Pedro you had somebody install a 250/8 carburated motor into your car before your ownership....

I got them to carbs rebuilders in Toronto
2nd generation of carbs rebuilders shop
Everyone claimed they are the best in Toronto area and my experience with them confirms.
Extremely knowledgable and had zeniths rebuild before, recent before mine for a Mercedes dealership

Finally the engine with the tranny is out
It was not as bad as thought it will be and the tranny does add weight
Next is cleaning and separation of the tranny from the block
