Thank you very much Benzmac,
I'm sorry that I just get back with you today, but I just returned from a trip to Augusta, Ga.
I must have enough fuel pressure, because my sparkplugs are soaked with fuel after I try to start the car.
I have a spark on the plugs, but I have to check on Tuesday if the spark is strong enough to ignite the fuel.
I still like to find a diagram or photograph from a 1980 model 450SL, just to see if my vacuum hoses are hooked up correctly.
Thanks again for your help and good luck with your shop.
