How cool is that, finally a decent number of M110 cars on the forum. There's often been a bit of an information lack on these.
Great to see !Hi Guys, Apologies for digging up an old post. Thought I would add myself to the Australian delivered 280SE group. Mine's an '85 model. Will be watching future posts with lots of interest.
Also, thanks for the tips on SCA and Repco. Will be needing to do a few maintenance items on mine. I'm a little old school so have ordered a paper softcover manual and I'm hoping its the right one for the 280SE. Will get to the maintenance activities once I have the manual in hand. Will keep you posted if it works out.
Funny thing is after I replaced the caps it was working, then decided to stop again ? so could be a power supply issue, not a big issue.If you're not opposed to pilfering one from a wreckers, if you replace the whole Thaco/Clock dial off a 280SE/L you should have both a clock and Thaco that work... I always thought those clocks were indestructible!
You might want to look at the clocks power supply from the plug on the back?
What's the symptoms on that one ? I know next to nothing on MBs, but it might be something common to other vehicles.Funny thing is after I replaced the caps it was working, then decided to stop again ? so could be a power supply issue, not a big issue.
I'm having a hard hot start issue atm, which is far more annoying, actually out of ideas on that one. Might have to start a new thread.
Its on the compliance plate. Has a paint code on the large plate to the right of the VIN plate. (Just in front of the radiator)To tell the truth, I don't actually know - it has a light blue colour so it may well be. Is there a code number for the paint scheme somewhere ? If you let me know, I'll look it up & come back to you.
Hi thanks for that. I have been over everything. Looks like its the Fuel Pump Relay, which seems to be playing up also the OVP relay has blown a couple of fuses in the past so is also questionable ( Thanks to Nutz For Benz) in W123 forumThese might be of use
