    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Well... went for a drive today and noticed my odometer stopped at some point. From what I’ve read these cars has som old plastic gears that fail in them. Personally it’s not the end of the world to me as I know there’s a discrepancy on the mileage according to the title “not actual mileage”. I...

  6. Open for guidance- First time Mercedes 560sl owner

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks for the advice. I’m honestly not sure on the A/C. It’s lower on the list. I do know it blows cool air not cold though. I’ve been planning on taking the temperature of what it’s blowing out but keep forgetting to grab my thermometer. I’ll have to check the heater. I’ve honestly not checked...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I’m definitely going to get the body work done by someone I can trust. My mechanic has someone he has recommended. I haven’t spoken with him yet but will get a feel for him when time gets closer. I’m definitely not going with bondo. Will definitely have metal replaced. I’m driving the car as...

    Thank you all for the advice! Please feel free to keep it coming. I’m overly excited about finally having a SL.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Ok guys. Here are some engine photos. The little red circle ⭕️ indicates where I have some small brittle and cracking wires on part of the wiring harness. This is the area my mechanic was concerned with concerning the harness.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks for the advice. The steam clean would be nice to really clean the engine completely. The leaky valve covers have made quite a mess. Honestly I’m unsure whether to do it or not due to the reasons you described. The wiring harness is overall in good shape but there are a couple spots...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks for the pointers. I’m not really a diy guy. Although, I can do some of the small things. I will have to have my mechanic check the steering coupler. I was told by two different shops that the beer box had excessive play. Guess I got some misinformation from the internet about the timing...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks for the response. I guess I got some misinformation from the internet about a 560 having a single row timing chain. Imagine that... false information from the internet. I’m definitely having it checked out. I need to figure how to tots some photos. I use my iPad mainly and not sure how...
  15. Open for guidance- First time Mercedes 560sl owner

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I’m fairly new here and I am a first time Mercedes owner and kind of jumped in not knowing much. I just knew I always wanted an R107 style Mercedes as far back as I can remember. So, last month I picked up a 1989 560 SL for what I consider a fairly good price. I purchased it for $3000 (U.S...
