Okay, I got a 560SEL 1988 I am getting fuel to the engine and spark too... It is not firing at all.. The timing is okay I think have not checked it...

I bought the car not running... and cannot figure it out. Anyone know what it might be? Good spark and fuel to the engine... What else could it be?

Anyways.. I wanted to drop a new engine into the car, I was wondering what engines will fit I can hookup to this car... I am thinking a chevy engine like a 350 I'd like to drop into it.

Mike Ramay is the only one I know that has dropped a LT motor into a 126. What is your goal budget wise and HP wise?

Sorry you gave up.
You said there is "fuel to the engine" but that doesn't necessarily mean it is getting into the combustion chamber.

I've had my Bosch fuel injection apart and back together about 5 times now.
Its fairly robust. But sensitive to certain pressures.
