Default Re: C107's 560SEL

I just got the SEL back from having some work done on it.
The most important one was having the guides replaced.
The previous owner paid good money for the chain and tensioner to be changed. For some reason the guides and sprokets were not replaced at the same time. I can understand not replacing the sprokets (although given their cost I am not sure why you wouldn't) but it seems almost criminal to do the job and not replace the guides. The guides that were pulled out of the engine were not broken by they were a deep coffee colour so they were certainly not changed. While it was open, had them put on new camshaft oiler fittings.

At the same time I had the thermostat and engine/transmission mounts changed. Makes a huge difference as the old ones were as flat as pancakes.

I had purchased a good used leather steering wheel to put on the car, but somebody who worked on the car previously must have used a rattle gun to do up the bolt as it was stripped. I had that changed while it was in at the mechanic too.

Great work! If the sprockets have never been changed & it’s done >200K, they’re still available (& cheap) then why not? Where did you get the parts?

I got all the stuff from the USA, I think a combination of Pelican and FCP euro.
I think I had a pelican 10% off code that helped.
