    420SE M116965 belt pulleys

    Last night I had a crazy failure of belt pulleys. The viscous fan hub is getting noisy so I took it off to see if I could fix it (can't, but that's another story). Now, that's held on by the same 4 bolts that also hold the pressed-steel pulley on the water pump, as far as I can tell...

    80's Autotest, BMW 735i, Jag XJ6 and w126 420SE

    Remember when car shows were about the cars? Acceleration tests, turning circles, Db tests, complete with non ironical Rick Astley soundtrack. This period Dutch show puts the BMW, Jag and the big merc through their paces. The brake tests, slalom and elk tests are where things get...

    replace 420sl engine with 420se engine

    Hi, I posted before regarding the timing chain going on my 276k mile 1988 420SL. I have located a relatively low mileage engine out of a 420SE to replace - does anyone know whether there are any issues with replacing the SL unit with one from an SE? Thank you Martin

    My 420SE W126

    Its a 1990 H plate, I have been using it daily and is a comfy smooth car to cruise about in. I have just put on 6 months tax and still has MOT until July. This is a nice usable car, the body is straight but she has a few battle scars and rust bubbles but nothing more than you would expect...

    420se exhaust mods tomorrow

    I'm going to my friends workshop to use his ramp tomorrow. The rear silencer is not very good and looks about ready to fall off. I'm planning to chop this out and put in something that will bring out some more of the V8's grumble. I'm thinking I will keep the two u-bends and just lose...

    Broken electric antenna on my 420SE (W126)

    Hi folks. My antenna no longer comes down, it simply stays up yet makes the regular noise it used to, as it was coming down. I am guessing its time for a new one. Any idea where the best but cheapest place to buy one is? I will fit myself (or at least try to :D ) Any help appreciated :)
