  1. Free Trunk carpeting

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    Hmm, I don't have any carpet in mine so this could be an imporvement. PM sent.
  2. WTB EGR valve

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    Weather was still crap, but I made it to the junkyard today. The SLC was picked pretty clean and I didn't see an EGR valve, sorry.
  3. WTB EGR valve

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    Weather took a turn so I ended up not making it out. I'll try to stop by tomorrow and will let you know.
  4. WTB EGR valve

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    I'm going to a junkyard today that has a 1980 450SLC. I would imagine it would have the same EGR as your 1977. If you want, I can pick it up for you if its still there, but I have no way to test it and can't guarantee it will work.
  5. Wire coming off of ECU Connector

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I've been using today to chase down a bunch of vacuum and wiring gremlins that I've been too lazy to fix over the years. Looking at my ECU in the passenger foot well, there is a green coaxial cable coming off of the ECU that the PO spliced into very messily. The other end of the spliced wire...
  6. Ignition control unit rebuild???

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I've heard of a lot of people having different units rebuilt by Programa and everyone seems to be happy with them. The mechanic I go to for all of my Mercedes work also said they're the only people he'll have rebuild his units.
  7. WTB: Fuel Line from WUR to Distributor

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    You are absolutely amazing! I couldn't find that part number anywhere, thank you! If no one messages me soon I'll probably just buy one from that website. Thank you again!
  8. WTB: Fuel Line from WUR to Distributor

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    I am trying to buy a fuel line for my 380sl. It is a skinny line that goes from the warm up regulator, along the passenger side bank of fuel injectors, around the back of the intake manifold, then up to the driver's side of the fuel distributor. I've tried looking through a few junkyards but...
  9. 1988 SL 560 in Maryland - Top replacement

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    If you're in Central/North East Maryland (Around the Baltimore Area) I always recommend Cignatta Motorworks up in Bel Air. Dennis Cignatta is a great guy that does honest work. I can't speak for how much he'd charge because I don't know, but I'm sure he'd be willing to give a quick quote if you...
  10. New life for 1975 sl

    From the article: "ENGINE BY MODEL YEAR 350 SL: 1971—1972, 3.5 L V8* (200 hp) 450 SL: 1972—1980, 4.5 L V8* (222 hp) 280 SL: 1974—1985, 2.8 L V6** (182 hp) 380 SL: 1980—1986, 3.8 L V8* (215 hp) - Aluminum engine block introduced 500 SL: 1980—1986, 5.0 L V8* (240 hp) 560...
  11. R107 Data Plate Decoder

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Damn, I was hoping my car was one of only a few 1985's to have it haha that would be cool.
  12. R107 Data Plate Decoder

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Did it start in 1986? My 1985 380sl has code 274 on it and has a tan interior so I assumed that was correct.
  13. offset woodruff keys

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Sorry to bring a long dead post back to life, but has anyone ever tested this? I'm probably gonna redo my timing chain/guides soon so I might give it a try when the new one is on.
  14. Ever more VALUATION hype ...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    It's been in my garage being worked on for the past two years so it isn't the cleanest right now. Hopefully I'll have it out and about soon though and once I do I'll be sure to post some pictures here!

  16. Found this 107 on Craigslist/Ebay/etc.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Have any of you done business with Europa German Parts out of Shelbyville Kentucky? I found them on Craigslist and figured they were local (I'm in Maryland and the post was made in Baltimore) but when I called the guy told me they're in Kentucky. Here's his ad: Mercedes Parts Inventory Sale --...
  17. R107 Car Seats - $150

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    They are FloFit seats. They were used in the late 80's and early 90's in Mustangs. They're comparable to Recaros in their build quality, but their lower bolsters have led people to consider them less sporty and slightly less desirable, but I think they still look great and if I were looking for...
  18. 1987 560SL Wrap instead of paint

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I've heard that wraps usually have a long life. The adhesive lasts for years as long as none of the edges raise and you don't get really deep scratches. Another bonus of them is that if you do get a minor ding or scratch, only the wrap gets damaged, the paint underneath doesn't get hurt...
  19. Timing chain/sprocket problem

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    The first picture is the passenger side cam timing mark, second is drivers side. Third picture is the crankshaft damper. The last picture shows how much slack is in the timing chain. Both cams are a little past TDC it looks like and the crank is only at 8 or 9 degrees so I don't think that's...
  20. Timing chain/sprocket problem

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I'm sure this is going to be a stupid question to most of the people that frequent this site; is there a timing mark for the crankshaft? The cams both have the marks on the first cam tower of each head and the camshaft itself to check timing, but is there a gauge for the crankshaft? I know it...
