Is the transmission slipping? What does the timing read, this car has a Distributor. Does the timing advance? Does the car misfire? Are the mechanical injectors flowing properly? How is the Fuel Distributor? Is there rust or contamination inside of it?

here is a link to a site with repair manual info for your vehicle, there is a small fee but it is well worth it.

Aloha Sir, Have you figured out whats going on with your 300SL? Please let me know what was done to the vehicle last when the "over 50" problem began.
