    I’ve been working to get my new-to-me 1971 280SE on the road for about a year now. It currently has a 250SE motor installed, but I’m working on that! Hoses, belts, fluids, brakes, tank, interior, fuel delivery pump, throttle linkage are all sorted, but the motor is still not very cooperative...

    Hi All, I’ve been a lurker on here for many years, never posted anything (that I remember) until now. My problem is that my 1972 280 SEL 4.5 (4.5 = US-only V-8), after sitting for perhaps two years, last started about a year ago, now cranks and tries to catch but then keeps cranking. Battery...

    I have a 1976 w115. I just replaced my master cylinder but the old reservoir doesn't fit the new one. One from most of the 70s w108 w114 w115 w116 should fit just fine. I checked eBay and the only used one I can find is in Lithuania.

    Good evening! I have been stuck for more than a month by a non-functional fuel pump. Specifically, the brush holders in the fuel pump have each lost a foot, and therefore don't hold the brush in place. I've been to Bosch shops, electric motor repair shops, emailed old parts sources, and even...

    A bit of a head scratcher. I've installed the radiator. The rubber pieces on the radiator sides are seated in the bottom of their channels. The transmission to radiator line fits just between the anti-roll bar and the pulley. I don't think it could be any higher or any lower and still fit...

    I'm the proud new-ish owner of a '71 280SE that I have been working to make road-ready. One non-essential that I took on was the replacement of the grille shell, as the one that came on the car was all out of shine. I expected to move the rosette over, attach my brand new star, put it on the car...

    Hi, I picked up a 72' 280 SE 4.5 American market (W108) it's on the rough side, but very solid bones, and minimal surface rust. It hadn't been run in a few years but due to a leaky fuel line from the gas tank bad gas wasn't an issue. I'm hoping to do a restoration and repaint to bring it back to...
