Check fuel pressure to top centre of metering head.  This fault is often caused 
by a defective warmup valve - it's mounted on the opposite side of the engine 
block but not connected to it, just for heat conduction.  In failure mode, too 
much fuel pressure is applied to the centre of the metering head - nominal for 
an MB engine is 3.4 bar.  Mine was 6.2 when I had this problem.  I'm off to 
Berlin today, and a replacement valve is waiting for me there.
