Did you check the head for warpage? You may have to get it milled. A cheap (universal) head gasket could also leak. I had this problem on a Datsun truck.

The regulator is discombobulated, however, and I'm getting 300+V. More disturbing than this is that the head gasket very definitely _is_ leaking. Water is seeping out on both sides. Sigh. The head was torqued down to 175#-ft in three stages, over a new dry gasket. I wonder what is wrong? -- Jim _______________________________________ http://www.striplin.net For new parts see official list sponsor: http://www.buymbparts.com/ For used parts email [EMAIL PROTECTED] To Unsubscribe or change delivery options go to: http://striplin.net/mailman/listinfo/mercedes_striplin.net
