W126 280SE's are still common on scrap yards here in South Africa.

(Unfortunately for me, none with an ABS diff...)

No tools needed, just take an old sparkplug with you next time. 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.

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
