It sort of does in the early r107 (D-jet M117) The system is susceptible to heat soaking of the fuel lines after driving which causes a phase change in the petrol. As a gas, the petrol is far too compressible and unable to flow properly/diffuse as it piddles out of the injectors. Hard or no

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

The Zeniths are a piece of cake to work with. You just have to follow the instructions to. The. Letter. I love the M130 with the Zenith carbs. Had this setup in several cars, W114, W108, and they ran great. The W114, a 1970 250C, would pull stumps and easily blow larger displacement cars away
