The fact that it ran is a good sign. I'd follow the other advice on here, then run it a little bit again, and re-check the compression numbers. You just might have a runner.

Tested maxes again: 305 squat, 250 bench, 305 deadlift. Trying for a deadlift max 20 minutes after a squat PR doesn't seem like such a great idea.

Is this bolt a common/possible point for leaks? I have a small but worsening power steering leak, and it seems to be coming from this bolt. I tried tightening it, but it was already tight.

Going to Look at a '92 600 SL

If the seller ever calls me back anyway.

I skimmed the first 20 pages of this forum. I didn't see much about the V12 models. Any special items to check, in addition to the usual old car things?

My commute is only 5 miles round trip, so maybe it isn't getting hot enough to burn the oil in that time. No rebuild on the turbo that I'm aware of.
