You are getting spark .... some raw fuel smell in the tailpipe and especially in the engine compartment ....
The raw fuel smell in the engine compartment ... this bothers me.
Have you pulled the air cleaner assembly and looked for the source of the fuel smell?
Here is something, a bit off, but when I was trying to resurect the 190, a MBZ tech told me to bleed the fuel lines AT the fuel distributor. Never heard of such a thing. Did it and it made all the difference in running.
I am unsure whether you get get a bleed without it running.
I am sure we'll help you get this thing figured out and running!
Hang in there and keep us posted!
