Interesting .... the motor definately labors.

I am checking it out to see if it would make a good first driver for my daughter (17 years old).

We've replaced the water pump, cap, rotor and spark plugs .... but it doesn't rev freely and lacks power. Fun working with her on the car but our results are disheartening.

Any suggestions on where to look regarding the laboring and sub-par performance of the engine?

If I track the vacuum line, where does it start on top of the engine?

I have replace the vac mod on my 300E and other cars.

Any addtional suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
