Can anyone tell me where to find the engine number on a 560 sec?

at the rear of the engine, parallel to the firewall, above the bell housing - it may be a bit dirty, a mirror and torch helps.

Thanks, I'll have another look. Any clues on whether its visible from above or just from under the car?

Tried all positions and still can't find it.

Cheers,

Frank

The engine number is on the left side of the block on top at the end of the head. Look down at your left valve cover. Its just a little step and almost dirty. Take a long light, ascrewdriver, some old cloth and break cleaner and you will find it ;)

So now that I've discovered that this is the place to get answers, does anybody know of a "common", readily available oil that is the equivilent and compaitible with the hydralic suspension oil used in the 126 series and 129 series? or is it Mercedes oil only?

Cheers,

How'd your 560SEC check out in the engine serial department?

You can buy the hydraulic oil from parts.com or autohausaz.com.

All good thanks, i found it and it matches my records which is a bonus as i've got to take the car in for a reg transfer and i wanted to make it easy for the inspectors.

Cheers.
