It's been a loooong road to this point,
The car has been in and out of the Mech shop. This last time I left it there for 3 months,
That being said, The fuel pump was replaced and so was the fuel pump relay. The mech has tested the car for the last few weeks and where it would usually leave him on the side of the road, it is actually hassle free (Touch Wood).
So I will be collecting this weekend and I sure do hope for the best

If it doesn't want to start, take off any plug lead from any sparkplug in the engine and put that lead on your extra sparkplug, ground it anywhere and let someone swing the starter, you will immediately see spark on the plug or no spark. Now you know, you have an electrical issue or if there is spark, then you have a fuel issue.|

W126 280SE's are still common on scrap yards here in South Africa.
(Unfortunately for me, none with an ABS diff...)

With the car sitting 25 years not running, I didn't want the headaches and cost of the M110. The turbo diesel with a 5 speed is a joy to drive and starts every time. If you were in the US I would have every part you are looking for from the two 280CE's I have the parts off of.|

|Rudi Raaths||Sorry to hear, have you figured out if it is fuel or spark, mine turned out to be the coil, it showed no symptoms but replaced with the correct blue high voltage Bosch coil from Diesel-Electrick and I am surprised with the allround better behavior of the engine.|

And we back to square one
It happened again! I have no idea now what to do. It's going back to the mechanic this evening.

And it's all systems go.
After sorting out the fuel pump relay it starts every time.
