Wanted - Ignition Control Module

Postby 420 SE » Sat 12 Aug, 2017 4:48 pm

Anyone have/know of a good ignition control module for the 420?

My friend who is keeping my car while I am away has had a diagnosis of a failed module and been quoted between $2000 - $7000 for a new one :nono:

The car is currently in Victoria.

220 SEb - 1962 (Hilda - sadly gone to which there is no return)
420 SE - 1988 (Lucy) - may be nearing the end of life...
ML 500 - 2008 (the Doha desert Dame) - retired
ML 400 - 2015 (the new Doha desert Dame, or is that Princess?)

Beware of fundamentalists

The 126 - undoubtedly the last, best large body MB
