c107 1973 Mercedes 450SLC Engine stalls after a couple of minutes.
I recently bought a 1973 Mercedes 450SLC. It was barely driven, if at all the last 2 years. I drove the car home in a 3 hour drive and I got home fine.
Over the last couple of weeks, I changed the air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, oil filter, battery and car drove well. Now, 2 days ago I changed the fuel filter and the engine runs smooth for about 5 min after a cold start and dies once it comes to temperature. It does start but with the utmost hesitance and doesn't idle at all. Then when the engine is cold, it starts and runs beautifully for a couple minutes again.
Can anybody please give me some pointers?
Thanks in advance!
