Quote from: Feather535 on 31 August 2022, 03:27 PMHello,I just acquired a 1977 280SE. The car has been in California since new and it's complete, straight and original, but it has been off the road for 10 year, so everything needs attention. The most immediate issue is that the engine runs poorly. It bogs down on acceleration and pops back through the throttle body. I'll do the usual tune-up, etc, but is there anything particular to this model/engine I should look for?I've had lots of European cars from this era and other Mercedes models, but never an S-class or this engine, so I'll have lots of questions.Thanks for your help!

Quote from: Feather535 on 19 September 2022, 09:19 AMThanks for all the excellent advice about the fuel system issues on this car. I've addressed most of those problems, and I've changed all the fluids and bled the brakes. At this point, the car starts, runs, drives and stops. There is still a bit of off-idle stumble when the engine is cold, but it runs well when it warms up. 1. WUR?Now it's on to other things: the 2. oil pressure gauge always reads at the top of the scale, the fuel level gauge always reads low (empty), 3. all the rest - the front passenger-side window won't go up all the way, the windshield washer doesn't work... Where to start???
