Now it's time for real help

647 0
I have a 85 380SE.

I have installed a piston, a new timming chain with gears, new chain guides upper and lower and bought a parts car to use as a pattern for reassembly of the junk on top of the engine. It runs like a top.

The car wants to idle at 5000 rpm. I have to change the ignition timming to get it to idle down. When it is idled down it won't accelerate at all. It just chokes.

I am aware that there maybe several things wrong. I am almost sure that the vacuum is some if not all of the problem.

Could someone send me a vacuum diagram for this engine?

I am also requesting that anyone with insight to these problems help guide me through working out the kinks too.

Thanks Guys,

Dan Howard
