OK so I am now promising to myself in front of all of my fellow W126ers that Griselda will be at her best WHILE I OWN AND AM DRIVING HER. I just sold my other SEC and it was at its best in the days before I sold it. All those little fixes and upgrades I had been meaning to do got done, BUT I DID NOT GET TO ENJOY THEM. NEVER AGAIN! I will fix and upgrade as I go, I will not put off the little things I WILL ENJOY THE FRUITS OF MY LABOR!
SINCERLY, BOB

Well,

1. hope is the first step on the road to disappointment
2. a battle plan never survives first contact with the enemy.

So...

Hope for the best

Plan for the worst

And stick to your guns !


So good luck to ya...and may you enjoy the fruits of your labor !

You named her Griselda , sorry but that name evokes pain and suffering maybe you should give her a rebirth with a name that says hot and sultry , just got my SEC back from timing chain , tensioner and guides to suspension all updated including all belts and oilers. the best good luck . PS name her right

Bob,

Great find!!!!! I am currious to see what you have under the valve covers. If it has solid lifters, we need to talk. PM me when you have a free moment and I will fill you in.

Mike
