Just gone to start my 300te 24v which has been parked up for a few weeks & have no power to the fuel pump.
Got sparks & everything else works too.
A bit embarrassed to ask, but where should the power come from?
Car has air con & ASD.

the relay is powered throught the MAS relay, an overcomplicated piece of kit. if you check the harness below the relay plug you will see the black/red/white wire that goes to the pump from the relay - check here for live.

A beautiful piece of equipment - turn the knob & it lifts itself out!!
A multitude of posts on the relay, yet only four of them go into a terminal.
Thanx for your help, I'll take a look soon.
Any reason why I can't bridge it to get it running, as I'm thinking of breaking it (the car that is).

You can pull the OVP relay out and bridge number 7 & 8 it will then run all of the time

Thanx Malcolm.
As I said, I almost feel embarrassed asking, but I've been so spoilt the last couple of months working on proper Mercs that it was as much as I could do to remember where the fuel pump relay should have been!! I nearly cra#*ed myself when it wasn't there!
I love the old thing, but it's almost MOT time & the exhaust is a bit ropey, the self levelling pipes are hanging in on a wing & a prayer, front wings are just starting to go etc, coupled to the fact that I've got too many cars again (just bought a 500SEL & a 190 2.6) so I just want to get it going & make an assesment of it at work first.

Hi Keith

I bought quite a few bits from your previous breaker (320 car).

I am still interested in a good OS front wing.

Can you give me first refusal on that please.

Thanks

If it is only just starting to go that might be better than the one I have, and I can refurbish it - let me know when it might be available and I'll come over to see.

If I decide to break it, I'll E-mail some pics over.
