Hello! With a '73 280E!

Hi all,
I'm Warren, and I own a 1973 W114 280E which I bought from the original owner from new. It's been a massive project, but it's tidying up (the guy seems to have been duped by mechanics for a long time). I'm not making any severe changes, just replacing what needs doing with new factory parts, and replacing any rusted bolts and nuts with shiny ones, and doing a LOT of polishing
I'm having trouble getting it started after a complete top-end and bay rebuild, hence the registration! So please check my post and if you know something I don't please can you help me? It's my only car and it's a 40 min walk from home just to work on it, and it's been 2 months now!!! So you can imagine my keenness to start the engine.

Hi Warren. Car looks great. I can't see another post with your starting problems so maybe not posted yet? or if something went wrong try again. Lots of knowledge here to hep you run through some checks - could be something very simple.

Hey Craig! Thanks for your reply. I had a look as well and the post doesn't appear to be up yet, so maybe it hasn't been processed or authorised. Looking very forward to finding out what I might be doing wrong. It's exciting though, knowing I might be able to drive my car again within my lifetime ;)

As far as i can see with the approvals list the post isn't there. I don't suppose you have a copy? These systems can do funny things and i have lost big posts before - very frustrating. I will look out for things and approve as soon as i see it.
