I went down the road of trying multiple CCU units on my 87 300D. I ended up following the instructions by forum member James Dean, and was able to replace the capacitors inside the unit. Mine went from flaky operation to perfect operation. I also re-soldered all of the points on the bottom of the circuit board. There is a good chance that flaky-operation could link back to cold solder joints and/or bad capacitors. The boards on these are pretty simple as far as electronics go. I don't have time to look it up right now but if you search CCU solder or something like that I bet you will run across his posts.

I couldn't find the thread I was originally thinking of, but this link is a pretty good discussion on the internals and should give you the basic idea of what the W124 CCU internals look like. The capacitors are so cheap there really is no excuse to avoid replacing them while you have it apart if you are checking for cold solder joints. I only suggest this because in my case every CCU unit I tried from the junkyard didn't work properly haha.
