If it's not leads next thing to check would be leak with rubber donuts under intake. As injectors and distributor are fairly robust

Parts apparently on their way so cross fingers they fix the miss & I can get her to a LVT for a RWC & Club Reg for Spring/Summer!

Great to hear. Will be a big milestone to get this car back on the road. I wonder how many S2 full hydro W126 are registered and available for use (excluding those who had removed the system).

Thanks for the support guys. Going by my records itíll be the 3rd such car registered & running with S2 in Australia. Although the WA car has had its share of issues since being laid up for a very long period.

Once up & running again Iíll be thoroughly testing the hydro to make sure all functions are working correctly. Oh I just bought a spare HPF pump from Ebay nice n cheap since the seller didnít know what they were selling...

I would guess that if there are 3 known to be running in Australia, there are probably less than 100 running globally, mostly in Europe.

Probably more series 1 cars, I've seen a few more of those.

Interesting that I've only seen two W126 S1 HPFs. One was quite ho hum owned by a mate for a while now sold. The other was missing most of the parts from the system, so it probably doesn't count anyway. And yes I managed to get my hands on the remaining parts...
