Re: [MBZ] Urgent repair shop needed in central mass

2015-08-08 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
One thing I learned from my dealer parts guy is that the EPC will often show a 
part to be NLA when it's really not. He says there is another system they used 
called Paragon which is the determining source as to whether or not a part is 
still available.

He urged me to always check with him on parts that show as NLA in the EPC 
before going elsewhere. More often than not the part has been available.

On a related note, he gave me the MB key reference sheets yesterday when I 
ordered some keys for the S420. There's about 6 pages of stuff and it's the 
definitive reference for what keys go with which model car along with remote 
part numbers and key part numbers.

Not something you often use, but a great resource none the less.

 Must be one of the benefits if the brief marriage to Dogde. Dropping

 Dogde picked up a few good habits, but it appears MB picked up a lot of bad

Re: [MBZ] ? for the easterners

2015-08-08 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
If you want to avoid potentially chilly temperatures, I would stay south of the 
Space Coast (Melbourne, Cocoa Beach) on the east coast, and Tampa on the west.

The Panhandle and Jacksonville have seasons. It can easily get into the 30s-40s 
in Pensacola and Panama City in the winter months.

Avoid South Florida unless you're looking for an international flare. Naples 
is nice but it's where all the rich conservatives winter, so it's pricey.

You could always go to the Bradenton area, which is immediately south of me 
(Tampa). It's where the Amish winter.

Re: [MBZ] Ceramic brakes Wuz:This is bad

2015-08-08 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
There’s no special break-in process for ceramic pads that I know of.  You bed 
them in just like you would a set of organic pads, and that’s it.

I’ve used ceramic pads on the last three cars I’ve owned, and not only do they 
keep the wheels a lot cleaner, they last longer, too.

I just bought a set of domestic name brand (Wagner?) organic pads for the 1998 
S420 from Rock Auto on closeout.  A whopping $6.00.

Re: [MBZ] Ceramic brakes Wuz:This is bad

I think organic is a euphemism for ASBESTOS.

 FWIW:  I have never had ceramic pads on an MB.  ALL stop well, no
 problems with fade, etc with the cheap or midrange pads.  The very cheapest
 pads are ok, they just make your wheels dirtier.  Midrange are a little
 less dirty for the wheels.

 OE on the MBs were organic or asbestos, depending on age. (pre 1990 MBs)
 OE on the dogde were ceramic, so I used ceramic there.



 DO you want or care about clean wheels?

 Ceramic will keep your wheels cleaner.  I've had very good luck with
 cheap pads from oreely.  They do make your wheels dirty.  I just clean and
 paint the wheels every few years with a rattlecan. Unless you are driving
 on a race track, the cheap (organic) pads work very well.  If you plan to
 drag the brakes all the way down a mountain, they may fade, but I never
 have any problem.

 Ceramic on the dogde van:  The anti skid accelerometer has been fubar
 mostly since we got the van.  Most of the time the system turns itself off,
 but sometimes the LF brake drags.  this ruins the discs and pads.  About 18
 months ago I put new pads and rotors on; did the ceramic pad breakin stuff;
 and they were wonderful.

 Unfortunately, i never figured out how to snip the purple wire somewhere
 buried under the console that is said to disable the antiskid system.  So
 the new rotors and pads are ruined.  I recently dug in to the console
 innards and found the accelerometer.  I never found the purple wire, but I
 unplugged the accelerometer, with the same effect.  Anti skid is now dead.
 There are 2 fuses you can pull to disable, but it also kills the
 speedometer, odometer and some other somewhat necessary systems. This is
 all not really the fault of ceramic pads, but i don't think the cheap pads
 would cause the rotor warping like these did.

 The whole deal of the special breakin procedure for the ceramic pads is
 related to not warping the rotors and putting a glaze on the ceramic pad.


 How do organic pads compare to ceramic?

Subject: [MBZ] No more sinking, maybe



FTE master cylinder arrived last night about 8:30 p.m., I had half a day
off so I installed it after lunch.  Did not bench bleed it, just used the
power bleeder and pushed fresh fluid out to all four wheels.

Pedal feel is exactly like before (mushy) but it has always been mushy on
that car.  I may decide to try a different brake booster.  What causes a
mushy brake pedal other than air or bad MC?  Time for new brake hoses at
all four corners?

At first, the pedal would sink, just like with the last MC.  I drove it
around the block and stopped hard a few times, and it got better.  Doesn't
sink now, brakes do their thing just fine, no pulling.  I may get some 
more

brake fluid and try bleeding it some more.

I think I'll drive this car for a few days and see how it performs.

Thanks, last night we drove that car around town, brakes are 100% normal.

I would love this '95 sedan to have the firm German feel that my 124  123 
wagons have/had, but I'm not sure of the root cause.

Who else can share the pedal feel for a 124 E300? How about other '95 124 cars?

He's mulling

http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20150808/PC1603/150809393/1009

I think he just came by a little while ago, I heard the helicopter 
buzzing around, but I did not go out to wave the flag.


My buddy and his wife were riding their bikes on the beach when they 
were here a few weeks ago, saw Mrs. B jogging on the beach early Sunday 
morning.  She had a coupla SS guys trailing along and the Coasties had a 
dinghy following off the beach, and there was a cutter a bit further off 
shore.  I was riding my bike the afternoon they came, bunch of cops came 
flying past me in the road and closed it down, I rode on to the 
roundabout and stopped next to one of the deputies and was chatting with 
him, the motorcade came by a few minutes later.  The deputy seemed 
rather bored with the whole matter and seemed to rather be doing 
something else.  I got a bunch of pics.  It was actually fairly low-key, 
only 6 or 8 vehicles aside from ever how many cops.  It always buggers 
up the (one) road coming out this way as they have sort of a rolling 
blockade that blocks off other roads and driveways and such for 10 or 15 
minutes.  I have no idea why they don't just fly him out in a helo from 
the airport and dispense with all the drama but I guess that would be 
more involved.


He occasionally comes to the little shopping center down the road for an 
ice cream or whatever, usually fairly low-key.  I try to avoid the place 
this time a year as it is full of idiot Yankee turistas who check their 
brains at the bridge before proceeding on out this way.

I think you're right Dan, that'll be my next move.  I noticed that the
brake hoses on my '87 wagon are looking pretty ragged, might as well get an
extra set for the '95 sedan and see how that works.

Hmmm, if they are the same part number, perhaps I'll get one set of new
hoses for the wagon, and try them on the sedan before they go on the wagon,
then I'll know.  That will only cost me brake fluid and time.

Apply the Jaime rule: how much will this hack cost, and is my car or person
worth that cost to the hacker?

Just because they can, doesn't mean that they will.

[MBZ] Moving engines

2015-08-08 Thread Kaleb C. Striplin via Mercedes
I'm out here in the 102 heat, 115 heat index, loading engines to haul out to 
new okie acres. I received my quick attach pallet fork attachment for my 
tractor yesterday and boy it sure makes moving them a lot easier. Just scoops 
them right up.

Those swap cylinders are NOT full.  they have 16-18 lb in a 25 lb 
cylinder.  When you get the tank filled, they put in 25 lb for a buck or 
two less than a swap.




Does Costco sell propane down south?
We are currently paying $8.45 for a 20# fill at Costco here in Winnipeg.
