Had to do the crank position sensor on the SL500 when I got home, took
me all of about 15 minutes, if that. Cleaned the MAF while I had the
air cleaner off. Seemed happy, so I moved to the 300D to do a couple
of minor things.
Replaced the old sealing ring on the power steering pump. It was
leaking slightly and making a mess, so it got replaced. Realized I had
left the brake fluid reservoir cap off when I was topping off the
fluid yesterday. Dang it. No sign of it anywhere in the nether regions
of the engine compartment, but no worries, as I had a spare in the
“drawer ‘o’ parts”. Huzzah!
I got some adapter hoses for my R134a manifold gauge set and tried
checking the AC pressures. No joy. The R12 fittings don’t have a nub
or button that projects out far enough to depress the pin on the
Schrader valve. Darn it. Guess I just need to break down and buy an
R12 gauge set. Wish I could find a set of hoses that would work with
my existing gauge set. If anyone knows of a source for some hoses that
would work, I’m all ears.
I may tackle the cooling system drain and flush tomorrow after work.
I’ve got new radiator hoses that are nice and flexible, unlike the
ones that are currently on the car. Over the weekend I’m hoping to do
the engine mounts as well and maybe the transmission fluid and filter,
along with the B1 piston kit that I got today in my parts order.
