Specs wanted: W126 300SD weight distribution and GVW or curb weight
 
Having trouble finding these. Does someone either have them or have a suggestion as to where I can find them?

What year and model? Early ones are around 3650 later ones around 4000 long wheelbase somewhat heavier. They don't weigh much if any more than a 123 with similar equipment.

1982 300SD. I just found the weight, too... :). Any idea on where I could find the weight distribution?

try wikapedia maybe or search weight distribution for w126 cars

I believe you will find It very near 5050.

based on the gas flap, 28psi front, 30 rear, I'd bet it's more like 48/52... maybe 42/58, based on vehicle anticipation of stopping force throwing weight forward, I'd say.

american vehicles with poor weight distribution have 58/42 and their tires are often 32/28...

On my 84 500SEL it is on the B pillar inside the drivers door.

Yes, with adults in all the seats and some luggage in the trunk. With just a driver I imagine its a little heavier in front.

I might have this information. I purchased a large database from NHTSA. It includes GVW, weight distribution, front/rear brake bias, and plenty of other "stuff." I'll check tonight when I get home and see if the W126 is included.

This from a 1986 FSM supplemental manual for the 126.125 300SDL (OM603):

Empty weight: 1740kg
Permissible total wight: 2210kg
Axle load front/rear: 1065kg/1145kg

That is permissible load so it means four adults and a load in the trunk.;)

and with just the driver it would be more like 52/48.;)
