With Engine pulled - must replace list
1974 450SL - engine will be pulled to repair some rust issues. We are going to replace the following
Starter, alternator, water pump, thermostat, radiator hoses, etc - the obvious outside of the engine stuff
Inside the engine, i need some recommendations. I know the timing chain and guides for timing chain need to be replaced.
What else would you guys consider a must replace item? I think I've heard Valve seals mentioned on some threads.
btw, the engine did run, didn't smoke, etc.
Thanks for the guidance......
