One more thing - my brother had to move the car last week and pushed it back 6-7m and then forward the same distance. When I came back it had been left in gear so I presume it was also moved in gear. I know automatics aren't supposed to be pushed - would this have damaged it?

Thanks

That small of distance and slowly pushing will cause no damage.

Check you shifter linkage bushings, they may all be bad or gone.

With car safely supported, watch under car as shifter is moved and see if lever on side transmission actually moves.

Good to hear car is now running again.

Thanks rumb - from what you say it'll be easy to enough to see whether there's something moving when the gearstick is moved anyway.

Are the parts for the gearbox something I'll be able to get from a motor factors? Or would these be specialist parts I'd need to order?

Well now your just talking a foreign language to me..

On this side of the pond any online parts supplier would have them. or the dealer, they are inexpensive.

Here is the tool I made to install them

I doubt your brother would be able to push the car by hand if it were in gear. Are you certain it is in park? If your shifter bushings are perished the car may not be going fully into gear.

Would this engine be a D jetronic fuel system or early CIS one?

I can't imagine it would be CIS (k-jet). I know 72-75/76 w107 were d-jet and then k-jet for 76+. So it's very very unlikely that the w114 could be k-jet.

There was an earlier injection (don't know the name) that is apparently similar to diesel injection with an injection pump or something like that. I never had one, but I think that's the type of injection that a 1971 6-cylinder would have.
