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.

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...

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.

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.
