Change over to R-134A is your best bet as R-12 is unavailable at any price.

[MBZ] Hot cars and hot coffee, hot

2015-06-20 Thread Rich Thomas via Mercedes
Went down the road just now to the shopping center, Cars and Coffee was 
this morning.  Some generally interesting cars, one guy had a 
bronze/orange McLaren, there was a 190E 2.3-16 in general running 
condition that looked pretty cool, wasn't a trailer queen.  One woman 
had a nice 65 Chevy convertible she got for her 65th bday.  A few 
Porches and a DB9, a very nice older M6, a Lotus that looked like the 
engine was poured into the body, coupla older Vettes and a new one.  
Really nice old green woody.  A blue Mini-Moke that looked fun.

I figured out those speaker connectors behind the radio are indeed the rear

Hi Meade,
You can easily bypass the fader switch... In earlier cars (which I'm
familiar with) the fader switch wiring harness has connections to the
rear
speakers in the center console.  If you work with the wire, you can
stretch
them up to the radio.  No need to run new wires to the rear.  I run new
wiring to the fronts, since the factory wiring is part of the factory
fader

the

for
them) so I can return the car to original.

The original style speaker connectors are labeled + and - if you look
very
carefully at the plastic pieces.

Good luck!

You might be able to test your 1492 with a meter.  Measure
the resistance between the various speaker - terminal.
Also measure from the - terminal to chassis ground.
Probably should check both polarities.  

Compare that to the same test procedure done with the +

R-12 is still easily available.. it just requires a license to buy it.
My supplier here will sell any amount I want as long as I flip out the
license and sign the form that says I'm EPA Certified to install it.

Well.. that and cleared by my bank to write the check for it.. it ain't
cheap.

License exam can be done online.. takes 2 hrs or less to study up for it..
maybe 20 minutes to take the exam, file it.. etc etc..

Personally, I would NOT use GoDaddy.  I started using them

aggressive, and there service has been good.  I just don't
like their marketing.

So I have migrated away.  My actual web hosting for almost 15
years has been http://www.site5.com.  I choose them because
they used Linux servers, were adamant about no adult content,
and prices were decent.   Now years later, they have proven
to be good.  I have had occasional troubles and they have
always been prompt and effective at fixing it.  I'm even
allowed a ssh login!

If all you want is a domain and enough server to host email,
it's probably overkill.  If you actually have a website to

Bad idea.  If the amplifier sections are designed
appropriately, it's possible to combine them - but you either
get double the current or double the voltage and without
changing the speaker impedance you likely won't get much more
power.

And most likely, the amplifier sections are NOT designed that
way.  In which case the amp outputs fight each other and
all the power goes into destroying the amp rather than out
the speakers.

Sounds like a nice morning.  Much better than risking heat stroke at the
pick-n-pull!  Took me six hours and a few gallons of sweat to liberate a
#20 head from a '95 S350.  I also took the injection pump, the glow plug
relay, injection lines and injectors.  I also have the turbo, which I
didn't really want but it came off with the head, and at that point I was
so beat I didn't have the energy to remove it and leave it behind.

The #1 piston looked very oil compared to the rest, and the head gasket
looked ruptured at the oil gallery near #1, so I'm guessing that it was
burning a lot of oil and maybe bent the front rod and ovaled out the
cylinder.  There were no honing marks visible on the cylinder wall at #1,
but I didn't check the others to compare.

Re: [MBZ] Jaime I need help! '87 wagon radio replacement

Speakers were not grounded from the factory.  Beware if this is the case.

 Ah.  They grounded one side of the speaker line - huh?
 *shakes head*  Not a good idea.  Oh well.  It is what it is.

 You might be able to test your 1492 with a meter.  Measure
 the resistance between the various speaker - terminal.
 Also measure from the - terminal to chassis ground.
 Probably should check both polarities.

 Compare that to the same test procedure done with the +
 terminals.  If the amp output is NOT ground referenced, the
 two could be similar.  I don't know what values to expect.

She will go down the road at 85 mph and still give you a realistic 30 
mpg. Slow down to 60 and enjoy 35-37 mpg.


Change over to R-134A is your best bet as R-12 is unavailable at any 
price.

Re: [MBZ] This guy is on a bad acid trip

2015-06-20 Thread G Mann via Mercedes
R-12 is still easily available.. it just requires a license to buy it.
My supplier here will sell any amount I want as long as I flip out the
license and sign the form that says I'm EPA Certified to install it.

Well.. that and cleared by my bank to write the check for it.. it ain't
cheap.

License exam can be done online.. takes 2 hrs or less to study up for it..
maybe 20 minutes to take the exam, file it.. etc etc..

Availability may vary in your state, ie California, for example..

I am.  Feast or famine though, they crush each car after thirty days.   Now 
there are no 124 cars, but this 140, 126, 202, and 210 cars.

I really don't need the head, but couldn't stand letting it go to the crusher.
