As far as the flaring problem goes, check the vacuum switches on top of 
the valve cover.  There's one that softens the shifts at idle (for 
downshifts as you coast to a stop) and when its lever arm wears through, 
it softens *all* the shifts.  Partial-throttle upshifts got noticably 
firmer when I fixed this on my '83 300D.

Depends. Some engines/cars have different left and right mounts and some 
don't.

anybody have any leads, preferably in the midwest  area, so we (friend and I) 
can check it out? My parish priest wants  one. He loves my SD and one of his 
teachers in the school (a MOPAR nut)  got a great deal on a nice 240D a few 
months back. (He already replaced  both axles (one was bad and he figured he 
might as well do them both  because they were cheap and easy - MB axles too)) 
and upgraded the read  diff for more speed in 4th - MOPAR guys make good diesel 
converts).  With 9 diesel MB's (newest being 1985) gracing the Church parking 
 lot, Father Dean wants to sell his Toyota and jump on the bandwagon. 
  
  Any help is appreciated.

A couple of weeks ago my '81 SD started an occasional weak buzzer sound from
under the dash.  It was rare and brief at first, and stopped when the
blinkers were activated.  It has gotten more frequent and longer lasting,
and this morning when I turned the key the left blinker came on and would
not quit.  A bit of fooling with the turn switch got it to go back to an
occasional buzz, but I suspect things need to be dealt with.  I pulled the
knee panel and determined that it was the left buzzer that was letting go.
My suspicion is the I am getting a short in the steering column and need to
pull the blinker stalk and check that.  For those familiar with such things,
I could hope it is something that sounds easier.  Any other suggestions?  If
that is what it needs, how big a job is that?  USAF mechanic son is out of
the area for training, and I am hoping it will hold until he is done and
back in the area..  Is it something a used to be handyman could tackle -
keeping in mind that more than minimal exertion is not a possibility for me.

instructor: Think what if.  What if the car next to me comes over in my lane, 
what if the car waiting at the stop sign pulls out, what if every scenario.  
Make it become second nature to plan an escape route.  I find myself using

The battery is about a year old, and has always been strong.  But as you
mention it I noticed that for my second start this morning [first start was
fine when I moved EM from the shed to the driveway to troubleshoot the
blinker / buzzer] it cranked very slowly for a few turns - longer than it
has ever taken start.  Turned the key off and on and it started right up as
usual.  I'll have the battery checked also.

As has been mentioned before, first potential culprit is dirty contacts
inside the hazard switch, second is a bad battery or contacts to same,
and third would be a bad blinker itself.  Note that my experience with
our 560 SL and my attempt to make a louder clacker for top-off driving
indicates that a slight load on the blinker itself (such as a dirty
switch that has some conductivity when it shouldn't, or a badly-placed
extra relay there for noise purposes) results in a weird muted buzzing.
That'd be my fourth suspect.

pretty easily restored.  It *should* have a positive action and 
well-defined gate -- if it's sloppy and the gears are hard to find, it 
just needs some work.

[MBZ] 12 Cyl 600S?

Fanciers, I was in Minneapolis tonight to hit a party at First Avenue, and I 
walked past an interesting Benz: From the late '80s or early 90's by me 
estimation. Long wheelbase. Didn't pay much attention 'til I saw the 
uncharacteristic V12 emblem on the side (I think behind the rear passenger

badge on the back read 600S if I recall. Is this legit? Incidentally, the

Re: [MBZ] Hey LT Don...How's the VW?

2006-01-29 Thread Bob Rentfro

Sweet.
Everyone I've ever met who has had dealings with those engines has loved 
them. The company  (Air Liquide, I think [I can barely spell English let 
alone French for Pete's sake]) who delivers liquid N2 to the old nuke plant 
had an entire fleet of trailers with those engines mounted beneath them to 
run the compressors and coolers and offloading pumps. The drivers loved them 
because the never failed.

Good luck on Monday.

Bob --

Starter went in today. I had to go over and assist the mech with putting
together the ball bearings / race of the half shaft. Jeff had spent an 
hour

on it and gave up in frustration, and I spent two hours studying the
assembly of the removed version. Suddenly the light bulb went off -- turn
the race sideways and slide in, instead of trying to do everything flat --
and in a few seconds I was instant hero.

Tomorrow, we install the new half shaft then drive the car over to where
Jeff works (Goodyear). There, we put the car up on the lift and Jeff will
fabricate a new exhaust system. Bleed the brakes, fix slow leak in one 
tire,

maybe do a coolant change, and I can drive it to work on Monday morning.

I am really impressed with the VW diesel engine. Pre-glow is single-digit
seconds, not the minute or so that I am used to with the 240D. Idle is
smooth. I can't wait to take it up thru the 5 speeds to see how well the
clutch works and how smooth the shifting is.

	This was just discussed the other day. There is a fix for the flaring 
which includes K1/K2 spring kits. There is an aftermarket mfr  that 
makes a valve body kit also.
	A delay in switching from P-R-D-R is OK to a point, Dr Booth may be 
able to clarify how long is OK. Some flaring may be reduced by 
adjusting and/or replacing the modulator too.
	If its real bad you can disconnect the vacuum line to the modulator 
and put up with hard shifts for a zillion more miles. Kind of a free 
repair if you don't want to spend $$ at a tranny shop.

I'd imagine that the seller won't pre-approve your bid unless you agree to pay 
the full price of $11k - then he'll pull the auction because you've used his 
special Buy It Now feature.  He's using Ebay as a cheap AutoTrader or Hemmings.

Re: [MBZ] Wiper blades

2006-01-29 Thread Dave M.
Just curious... why not buy the OE blade assembly from Rusty (or your
local dealer), they just get the OE/dealer refills in the future? Or
buy a couple of refills with the blade so you're all set for a few
years. On some models (like the early 124's) this is about the only
way to get a blade that fits perfectly. On a side note, I hear that
applying Formula 303 periodically can make them last longer - not sure
if it helps much or not.

 Both of the Bosch blades work well for my cars (I preferred the Excels
 when they were available), but the Excel assemblies are no longer
 available for my '85+ 190Ds with monowipers. I have to use the Microedge
 refills and build my own (Bosch just doesn't sell a complete assembly

Re: [MBZ] 12 Cyl 600S?

2006-01-29 Thread Rich Thomas
I saw one once in Cambridge, MA that the guy (an old dude obviously 
with lots of cash, was kind of a gold chain and pinky ring type) had 
mounted this large crystal and silver hood ornament on.  The crystal 
base was a hexagon or something, about 4 dia with flutings like an old 
roman column, and the silver winged thing on top stood another 6' tall 
or so, and was about that wide.  I could not really tell what it was 
supposed to be, but it looked like hell. I thought a seagull had impaled 
itself on the hood, but it was worse than that -- almost as bad as they 
way his wife looked.


A Touch of Class as the Italians liked to announce via a plate on the 
front of the car, sometimes with a red rose behind the letters.  No 
offense to any Italians out there, but if you live around Cambridge, 
Reveah, Summahvull, Meffuh, etc you know exactly what I mean.  This guy 
looked like a paving or hauling contractor.

[MBZ] Mono Wiper Info Request

2006-01-29 Thread John Berryman



	With recent talk of monowipers I am reminded that mine needs help. The 
motor is sluggish at best. I'm thinking maybe something in the gearbox 
(or not in the gearbox ie lubrication) is causing the slow-down. I have 
a spare gearbox and the original fried-looking motor that came in my 
1986 190D 2.5 Euro.
	When the switch indicates high speed position, the wipers move very 
slowly, when it indicates slow speed, the wipers move faster, in the 
delay position, it does nothing at all.
	I will be looking things over in a couple of hours and checking the 
pin-out on the electrical connector. I have been using RainX, which is 
a wonderful product, in lieu of wipers. It works great over 35-40mph 
but I really want my wipers to function correctly.

Any information, tips/tricks deeply appreciated.

Re: [MBZ] motor mounts 116/123/126 whats the deal?

you, or your just gullable Tom can hook you up.

They're the same now at the dealer and aftermarket. Its been that

Sure wish I could understand whatever language they're speaking. BTW-
I believe MSRP on that Maybach is somewhere in the mid six figures.
