Anyone familiar with 108 vapor lock issues? As far back (at least) as the 111 (1960) MB used a return flow system, to keep cooler Benzin flowing to the carbs. This helps to minimize problems. First step is to make sure the valve that controls the return flow to the tank is working

I think it will be corrected when you bleed the brakes - that allows the pressures to balance again. +1 If there is air in the rear circuit, the pedal may feel ok and the stopping may appear to be normal, because the front brakes do 70-80% of the stopping. Bleedem, rear first.
