I dont see strut mounts on the list? Theoretically they can cause a tilt.

I'm not sure if this would be the main cause though, only the injectors were pulled and calibrated? They did not touch the pump.

The rheostat on the adjustment knob? I've had problems with these on other W123 and W124's and they only ever killed the illumination?
