 Don’t know about 87s, but earlier models had issues with electrolytic caps in 
 the tach that dried out.
 
 Have you popped the cluster and taken a look around?

On closer look, it seems the car is setting on a trailer already. for a
long time.

So One price takes car AND trailer?

It's one of those cars that will end up either going to scrap or going to
someone who will give it the love it needs... In a few years, they will all
be gone, except for the few that got loved..

Re: [MBZ] This is how I load stubborn cars

2015-07-11 Thread Scott Ritchey via Mercedes
The clip-on forks work fine except it's hard to see what you are doing with
the business-end of the forks (view blocked by bucket) and the forks are
stronger than your bucket lip.  You will bend the lip of your bucket long
before the forks bend or you run out of hydraulics.  For me they were fine
for unloading  a 500 lb pallet but I bent the bucket on a tree big stump
(weight unknown).
