Chistmas 2014

Christmas 2014 008 Christmas 2014 007Nothing beats driving a vintage Benz on a long trip.
This year was no exception and I took my 300SEL 6.3 to Gladstone to stay at a relatives and enjoy a bit of seasonal cheer. The car ran great ( except for a blown fuel line which wasted $100 worth of fuel on the road) but I suspect the injection pump ,which I had rebuilt some years ago at great expense ,is running far too lean. how long since exhaust pipes were this color? or are they slipping lead back into high octane fuel?

That’s my 6.3 at Rockhampton where we spent a few hours looking for an RV for a relative.
