Re: [MBZ] San Antonio hotel

2015-06-29 Thread Rich Thomas via Mercedes
That reminds me of staying in a hotel in Las Vegas NM one night when on 
our way from Houston to Taos we got stuck by a snowstorm with 2 kids and 
2 poodles who did not really get along (dogs and chirruns) so we had to 
get 2 rooms and eat in shifts to keep all the individuals happy.  
Anyway, it was a cool old hotel, from back in the 1800s.  Flash forward 
some years, I am watching the movie No Country for Old Men and there is 
a scene where they are sitting in an old hotel having a conversation, 
and I think That looks familiar and it was that very hotel lobby.


If anyone is ever in Austin, there is a neat old hotel there called the 
Driscoll.

Somehow a dog with one ear up and one ear down evokes a positive response, while
the owner probably spent a bunch of time when it was a puppy either trying to
make them both stand up with paper cups or trying to make them go down with
bubble gum. Given the environment, I suspect the owner of this one couldn't care
less. 

There are some choice interior parts there, incredibly choice considering it's

Something in that environment is probably conformally coated, meaning in order 
to desolder any components you have to burn through the conformal coating.

When you burn through the conformal coating, you usually need enough heat that 
it damages the board and causes the foil to delaminate. Not to mention the 
possible thermal damage to any components nearby.

[MBZ] I killed it Jim! Then, fix it Bones!

2015-06-29 Thread clay via Mercedes
The 300d (76) has been sitting for a while.  I seem to have killed the 
connection from the key to the starter.  The glow circuit seems to work, the 
key turns and lights up the dash bulbs as normal, but when I turn the key to 
engage the starter, Nothing.

I have been removing wires from the door and other non-essential(?) items.  
Thinks like AC and window, sun roof.  The window wiring went out the firewall 
to a box (passenger side) that had fuses and wiring block, but also an 
ancillary pig tail that went under the fuse to a relay? with four wires.  A 
heavy red, a heavy black and standard ground (brown) and another wire.  I was 
messing with this bunch just prior to the no start.

What I need to do is divest as much as I can from the key and put it all on 
dash switches.  I need a kill switch, glow, ignition, start, and want the 
lights divorced from the spin dial.  Any tips?

[MBZ] cdl or not

2015-06-29 Thread Rick Hawkins Java via Mercedes
Folks

i know a fair bit about the DOT

it'squite complicated, sort of like the FAA (the dot is not happy until you 
are not happy)

to drive my isuzu npr (about 12,000 gross) i have to have a dot number and a 
dot program

i have to have a dot medical (like the faa) every 2 years …. $45 at a 
chiropractor (who actually did a thorough job and checked everything)

only fluid taken was urine checked for diabetes

but since i am under 26,500 or whatever the max non CDL is, i do not have to 
have a drug program (no testing) and i can drive on a car license

i have to keep logs etc and i have 3 notebooks of BS (mostly printed out forms 
from the dot site and manuals)

i have to do annual and driver inspections etc

i just make sure i am in order when i go out on the interstates and have to go 
to weigh stations

all this is for just me driving one truck

and it does't matter if i claim i am driving NOT for business … it all still 
applies

there are some farm exemptions and for carrying BEES

i have to pay an interstate tax or something of $75 per year

i had a dot guy come and do a safety inspection (at my office) … that means 
look at my paperwork

he was a nice good old boy and gave me a gold star …. he said it was pretty 
perfect

It took me probably 20 hours to get it all together and looking right

i used to have a CDL when it was a class 5 or something in georgia but never 
used it, so let it lapse

i'm actually thinking about getting an RV and towing machines behind that and 
dot would probably not bother me

i am not subject to the DOT regs when driving a car or motorcycle etc
thanks,

xx rick

 The regs are not limited to commercial vehicles.
 
 Lets say you have a camper or motorhome and you have a CDL.  The regs

What you say is not true. I don't know if it ever was, but it definitely
is not now.

In fact, the opposite is true. The latest revision of the Interstate
Truck Driver's Guide to Hours of Service, was published by the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in February 2013 to help
explain their regulations. On page two, it discusses Personal Use of a
Commercial Motor Vehicle saying,

   It is possible that occasionally you may not use a truck
   in commerce at all. You may be moving your personal
   belongings to a new house or, as a hobby, you may be taking
   your horses to a horse show. As long as the activity is not
   in support of a business, the Federal hours-of-service
   regulations do not apply to you.

   If you are not operating your truck in commerce, you are
   not subject to the hours-of-service regulations.

The hours-of-service regulations do not apply to anyone using a personal
vehicle, even if he has a CDL. Reading 49 CFR Part 395 would be very
helpful in correcting your mistaken ideas.

[MBZ] Stainless Steel Brake Lines

2015-06-29 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
Would be interested to hear anyone’s direct experience with using SS brake 
lines versus the stock rubber lines, and what exactly the difference was.

The S500 needs brake lines, so I found a set of stainless lines made by 
Goodridge and ordered them tonight.  About the same price as OE lines from the 
dealer from the looks of things.

It’s my understanding that SS lines give a much firmer pedal than rubber lines. 
 If I find this to be the case, I’ll definitely replace the lines on the SL500, 
as it’s always had sort of a soft pedal.  Lots of people in the R129 forum on 
BW have reported this as well.

There should be some way to unblock that port so the rest of the firewall
protects you from those who would cause mayhem.

Re: [MBZ] OT Circuit Board Repair

2015-06-29 Thread archer75--- via Mercedes
Some time ago several on the list suggested solvents for removing the coating 
on the boards in the climate control units in 123s. However, don't remember who 
they were at the moment or which solvents they suggested. 
Surface mounted components that have leads of adequate length can be snipped 
close to the old component and the new components leads can then be soldered to 
the old lead without heating the board providing that there is enough room to 
use  pointed heat sink clips on the old leads next to the board. I use surgical 
misquito forceps if there is room because they are heavier and absorb more heat.

 Something in that environment is probably conformally coated, meaning in 
 order to desolder any components you have to burn through the conformal 
 coating.
 
 When you burn through the conformal coating, you usually need enough heat 
 that it damages the board and causes the foil to delaminate. Not to mention 
 the possible thermal damage to any components nearby.

  GPS/Autopilot for a competition sailboat.
  
  Does it have circuits on both sides of the board?
  
  Not mine, I don't know.
  
  Have you looked to see if the ends of any of the capacitors are bulging?
  
  I did suggest that to the owner. I suggested he get a new or good used board
  and re-cap the old one for a spare. A used board is upwards of $600.

[MBZ] OT Firewalls

2015-06-29 Thread Meade Dillon via Mercedes
I finally fixed an email problem which has been bugging our household for a
couple of months.  We've been able to receive email on our email client -
home computer, but couldn't send most of the time.  Email worked fine from
our smart phones.

I called ATT tech support (second call in a few weeks) and we spent about
30 minutes making sure I knew how to enter my username and password and
setup the right email servers and ports and such, and the lady said the
next two steps were to temporarily shut off my computer firewall and then
delete and reload MS Outlook.

Firewall!

Checked the DSL modem / wireless router settings, shonuff the required port
for sending was blocked.  Shut off the firewall, can send just fine...
