Hi,

I have a dead number 8 cyl. on 450 SL engine.
The car is carb. model, 1979, CA-US version

It is getting spark.

thoughts on what else to check in regards to this?

vacuum leaks?

injector issues?

manifold leaks?

what else?

thanks!

Sounds very much like injector blockage. Had the same symptoms in mine and shortly after another cylinder went the same way. cleaned the injectors and the problem was partly solved. However with a car of that age and mileage the spry cones gets distorted and efficiency drops. Replaced all injectors and the engine performed as new.

Injectors $23 and seals $0.60

Injector?

I'm a bit confused, Both of you refer injectors as a possible source for the fault. If the car is a carb model as described, will it have injectors?
