As far as your harness is concerned: The 119 engines in that year...92+ had a service bulletin making dealers aware of wiring harness failure. Although it was not considered a "recall", dealers have been known to replace the harness at a significant price reduction in the name of "customer good will"...Factors that the dealers take into consideration are:
auto mileage , service record and confirmation that your particular car falls within the period of known harness manufacturing issues. Your machine sounds like a great candidate for some good will.
I had my 92 400E examined by a local dealer who was willing to make the change at "his parts cost only"...after checking the car, the service manager determined that the harness had been previously replaced.
Good luck
