He seemed quite curt and nearly rude, esp to two  guys (with Jasons son) who 
had driven four hours to look at a car. He  has some nice cars - Porsche, bugs, 
Benz and some old, but interesting  junkers - a Thing, old volvo wagon, etc. 
Car had some obvious problems  that he didn't volunteer info about.
  
  Not saying he doesn't have some nice ones and maybe he doesn't like  people 
from KC, who knows, but our impression was two thumbs down.

Oh yeah.  I might offer fifty bucks a cylinder, possibly going up to a 
hundred a liter for the mighty 616 if he was playing hardball.  I 
suspect it is going to sit on the lot for a while longer.

Chris, what was your impression of the place and the cars?  Guy seemed 
pretty nice on the phone, but that's all I know of it.

I just finished rebuilding my tandem pump. I sent part of the work out 
because I didn't have the right puller.
The Vickers pumps made for MB require a special hydraulic oil.  If you 
use ATF fluid, eventually there will be
a failure both internally and externally.  Internally, the "O" rings 
will swell and restrict flow. Externally, the main seal
will deteriorate and you will have a leak.  That leak will also keep the 
main bearing from being properly lubricated
and again you will have a mechanical failure. I'd look first of all at 
the tiny "O" rings.  If they are swollen replace them.

Even though I did use the proper hydraulic oil, apparently the PO 
didn't.  So I experienced the above conditions.

This may have nothing to do with your conditions but it may help.

Regards,
Constantine
