  1. Looking for 1988 560SEL Parts

    Thanks MBL87560SEC. I have been able to order the right intake tube from the US for AU$30 incl. shipping. But as you say, the left tube is nowhere to be found. Both tubes have cracks in the corrugated folds. I have been able to coat the corrugations with black polyurethane sealer. It fixes the...

  4. 560SEL, 1988 - High Compression?

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Hi all, my 560 has traveled 330k kms and has a smoking issue that points to the valve stem seals/guides. Only smoking at startup after long idles at the lights on hot days. I am planning to change the valve stem seals, chain, chain tensioner, guides and cam oilers. Because of the smoking issue...

    Thanks guys for your valuable reply's. "lesguy" your car is a stunner. Here is my 560 - looking very ordinary in comparison:
  6. Looking for better speakers W126, 560SEL

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Thank You for your valuable reply "tusabes". It looks like all new wiring to the speakers, bypassing factory wiring and fader. There is plenty of volume but very poor bass. With the bass full up the speakers will distort. The OEM speaker compartments are rather restrictive when it comes to...
  7. Looking for better speakers W126, 560SEL

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    My recently purchased 560SEL sadly had the original Becker radio/speakers replaced by a Kenwood KDC-U563BT, CD-Receiver, boosted by a MTX Audio, Thunder Sports MUD 100.2, 100 Watts x 2 RMS 2 Channel Amp. According to the previous owner, the speakers have also been replaced. I wonder with what...

    Howdy folks, I love the looks of my 560SEL, except for the tucked in rear wheels. I live in Australia and I'm going over to Germany next week for a family re-union. While over there I intend to buy some spares for my Merc here: https://www.carondo.com/. I need to do a timing...
  9. Hirschmann Antenna limit setting

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Thanks all for your input. I think I'll just wire the motor with a DPDT switch to operate the antenna at will independent of the radio.
  10. Do I need to change my chain, guides, cam oiler keepers?

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    "ianrandom" I don't think the car has ASR. At least there is no switch for it.
  11. Do I need to change my chain, guides, cam oiler keepers?

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Thanks guys for your reply. From what I have seen, there appears to be no problem with the chain, guides and tensioner. Correct me if I'm wrong. I guess the guides and tensioner may fail anytime because of their age. This is always a gamble when it is not known when and if they were replaced...
  12. Do I need to change my chain, guides, cam oiler keepers?

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Hi all, I recently purchased a 1988 560SEL. I checked out the chain, chain guides and cam oiler keepers. The odometer reads 325,000 kms. The odometer was not working when I purchased the car. Real mileage is more. The seller told me that the chain, tensioner and guides have been replaced by a...

    The antenna extends to 860mm. All segments appear to be intact and working correctly.

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Thank You all for your valuable posts. Here is a video to demonstrate the function of the Hirschmann antenna: Sorry about the orientation of the video. But I think you will get the idea. As it is now, it does the job. But for how long?
  15. Hirschmann Antenna limit setting

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Hi, I recently purchased a 1988 560SEL. The Hirschmann Auta 6000EL F467 Antenna was not working. I dismantled, cleaned and lubricated the unit and it is working fine, except the motor keeps running a few seconds after the antenna reaches the upper limit. This is accompanied by a clacking sound...
