OK - I finally got my W115 on my drive, she runs a bit rough, she's a
bit down at heel. One of the rear calipers is binding. The front
carpets are damp (as is the boot (a touch)). But she's pretty good
for a car that's well over 30 years old. I am looking at restoring her
to a nice 'tidy and useable' condition for the spring. An electric fan
conversion and an electronic ignition conversion are already on my
mind for better economy and reliability.
Are there any specific things that these girls are renowned for?
Moisture ingress into the cabin; where do I start looking to track
that down - I was thinking newwindscreen rubber (it looks pretty
brittle). But, hey! I have not one old Merc, but two! That's almost a
fleet... heh heh!! Loving being a two old Merc owner... I just hope my
bank manager is as enthusiastic :)
Any thoughts, stories, comments, pointers or warnings would be
welcome. I am a complete newbie with the W115 - and being without a
workshop manual puts me in a unique position in my motoring career!!
