Hi again guys and gals.
Over in 107-land, we've got a thing called the Encyclopedia Germanica v107. I was wondering if there is some required reading for a w114/5 owner that I should be studying up on.
For example, there's a front subframe "recall" issue with 107s, and there is also an issue with plastic timing chain guides in m117 engines. Both of those things, if not addressed, can be pretty catastrophic. Is there anything like that I should be concerned about with the w114/5 and m130?
Looking forward to providing more details after I see it in person and get it home tomorrow evening. The Uhaul trailer (not tow dolly) is lined up for tomorrow afternoon pickup.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
