  1. Thanks for all the good info. My 67-250S is
    running rich, about 13 m/p/g, need some help to lean it out,
    just had all s/plugs,ignition wires, Dist.cap,rotor changed.
    Who shall I go to have the Carb.tune? Regards, John

  2. Thank you for a very helpful description.
    Does anyone know the flow (e.g. kg/hour) rate through the carburettors, if I should measure with a flowmeter.

  3. Comprehensive and straightforward; this has proven to be a priceless resource for troubleshooting the Zenith carbs on my ’71 250. Much appreciated.

  4. Thank you very much for sharing, helped me in the past with my W114 230.6 and now with my W111 230S.

  5. Do you konw where can I buy a carburador zenith mercedes benz 1967?
    It seems very hard to find it i Brazil.

  6. Thanks a lot for this valuable information for the lonely Zenith owners. Zenith 35 40 and JaimeKop are synonymous! I have read it may times.


  7. Very useful. Thanks for sharing.

    Working in a Zenith carbs solution for a 300 SEL , M116 , 3.5 litters eight cylinders. Have you ideas about it?.


  8. Here we go rebuilding the front carb on my ’72 250C.
    Would never attempt it without this excellent resource.
    Thank you.

  9. Thanks for the information. Can you perhaps give an indication why the suction on my rear carburetor is very weak. The car will not idle at all and immediately cuts out when leaving the accelerator. Valve clearances are correct and compression on all cylinders are 900 – 1000. The engine runs smooth when the accelerator is pressed in short bursts in succession. Kind Regards

  10. Appreciations from Germany – the origin of the Zenith “Dinasaurs”.
    They are a little bit complex, but once you get to know them you’ll love them.
    So do I.
