The $14k they're asking for the 95 convertible would be on the high end.
$40k is 5k more than it cost new.

Well, it is in New Joisey, so that doubles the price.  And it is at

[MBZ] master cylinder

2015-08-24 Thread Randy Bennell via Mercedes
I finally got a rebuilt unit and replaced the master brake cylinder in 
my 115 300D yesterday afternoon.
I bench bled the master cylinder before installation and now have a good 
solid pedal. Still need to bleed the wheel cylinders - hopefully this 
evening so I can drive it again.
Must be 6 weeks or so since my problem developed. Took a month to get 
the rebuild kit and then I could not get it back together in a manner 
that I thought acceptable so I finally ordered a rebuild.


One issue that remains, and I had hoped would be solved in all of this 
is the brake warning light on the dash still does not wish to go out. I 
believe it to be the sender that warns of an uneven pressure between 
front and back.
It was a problem before and I have had the sensor unplugged for a while. 
When I dismantled the old unit to clean it, that part was pretty gummed 
up so I thought the new one should be clean and make it functional again.

Maybe my sensor is damaged or inoperative?
I won't get too far into it until I bleed the wheels and drive it a bit 
but I would rather have it intact than unplugged.

Anyone know anything much about this?

Anyone familiar with 108 vapor lock issues?


As far back (at least) as the 111 (1960) MB used a return flow 
system, to keep cooler Benzin flowing to the carbs.  This helps to 
minimize problems.  First step is to make sure the  valve that 
controls the return flow to the tank is working properly.


That and working on the lousy zenith dual carbs on a 250S are the 
limits of my MB carbureted gasser experience.   I avoid them like the 
plague, but the 220Sb with the dual solex were ok.

But on my 123s, the _red_ brake dash light warns of pressure

Because unplugging the sensor prevents the warning light from

Did the new master cylinder include a new sensor?

Does the dash light still come on for the self test when

even though the glow and start are not done with the key)

Re: [MBZ] This might be a decent buy

2015-08-24 Thread Jon Agne via Mercedes


I assume Curly's spell checker meant “lovely” when referring to the Zenith’s! 
:-)  My M108 may not be the quickest off the line with only 2.5l, but it runs 
great with no hesitation at all in acceleration.  It loves 55-75 mph, but will 
get to 90 in a heartbeat and sometimes find myself cruising along at 85 on the 
interstate.

As far as the vapor lock issue is concerned, yes, it can be a problem and it 
was for me until I realized the fuel return valve was totally petrified with 
fuel sediment after sitting for close to 15 years.  Tom Hanson has the correct 
part at the Classic Center.  I’d get the whole valve as it has to work just 
right.  Make sure it is threaded correctly and tight.  If not it will spew fuel 
directly onto the hot exhaust manifold.  Ask me how I know… 

I am guessing the vapor lock occurs in the large metal fuel line that passes 
directly in front of the valve cover as that is the only place the fuel line 
passes something that gets really warm.  I have seen some of these motors with 
custom insulated fuel hoses replacing this line.

I love my 250S with the M108 engine.  Thanks again to Jaime for the advice and 
occasional unobtainium part.

I assume (always dangerous to do that) that the 76 115 300D may be more 
like the 123 in any event as the earlier 115 models did not have the 
pressure imbalance sensor.


You are correct that there are two sensors - 1 for pressure imbalance 
and the other for low fluid.
They are wired together in the sense that the low level sensor has 2 
wires for it and the pressure sensor has one lead that appears to come 
on from the first. Like an oil pressure gauge, I assume (there it is 
again) that it grounds out when it puts the light on.
The bebuilt unit came with neither sensor. The level sensor is built 
into the resevoir and is not removable. I have not checked to see if it 
works. I could do so while bleeding the brakes as the level will no 
doubt go down. I am not pressure bleeding but just opening the wheel 
cylinder bleed screws while someone else steps on the pedal for me.
I believe the issue to be with the pressure sensor as unplugging the 
lead from it puts the light out.
It has a small white plastic pointer on it and I believe that the 
pointer will be moved one way or the other by the plunger in the body of 
the master cylinder when it is moved one way or the  other by the 
pressure from the main plunger.
One thought that comes to mind right now is that it might be in order to 
loosen it off enough to bleed it too just in case there is some air in 
there.

Will try that tonight.
If that does not work and it is still wonky after I bleed the brakes, I 
will remove it temporarily and test with a meter to see if it is 
grounded out all of the time.

What vapor lock?

My 108 (280SE 4.5) had the pump about 6 inches from the tank
- and down low. Pretty much no chance for classic vapor lock.
(fuel is vapor at the fuel pump so the fuel pump can't pump)

And mine had the electronic fuel injection (D-jet?  I don't
remember which jet it is) again making vapor lock nearly
impossible.

 Anyone familiar with 108 vapor lock issues?
 
 As far back (at least) as the 111 (1960) MB used a return flow system, to 
 keep cooler Benzin flowing to the carbs.  This helps to minimize problems.  
 First step is to make sure the  valve that controls the return flow to the 
 tank is working properly.
 
 That and working on the lousy zenith dual carbs on a 250S are the limits of 
 my MB carbureted gasser experience.   I avoid them like the plague, but the 
 220Sb with the dual solex were ok.

Re: [MBZ] Rock Auto Closeouts

2015-08-24 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
Glad it worked out for you, Craig.

Again, I’m not a huge fan of Rock Auto, but if I can find name brand stuff 
there for cheap I’ll buy it.

I just bought wipers for three of my cars (two sets for each), a cabin air 
filter for the R129, and a Continental poly-V belt for the W220.  Grand total 
with shipping was $30.

I found some Brembo brake rotors for the back of the R129 for $25/each, but it 
drove shipping up to $25.  I don’t really need them right now so I took them 
off the order.

 Thank you for this information, Dan.
 
 I ordered belts, wiper blades, and a set of front brake pads for our 1982
 240D/3.0. It was great paying $1.56 for belts and low prices for other
 things.

I think it will be corrected when you bleed the brakes - that allows the
pressures to balance again.

 Yes, and that might be corrected when I bleed the brakes.

 If it corrects when I bleed the brakes, I will be happyy.

+1  If there is air in the rear circuit, the pedal may feel ok and 
the stopping may appear to be normal, because the front brakes do 
70-80% of the stopping.  Bleedem,  rear first.

Yes in this case  I totally agree . Maybe needs that much $$$ to buy more
crack. That is even beyond Northeast  prices.

It's working its heart out trying to figure out what has been installed and what
has not?
You might just leave it on overnight and see if it's back to normal in the

IIRC, it was to open one set of lines, step on the brake pedal, then close
the first and open the second, step on the brake, then close them all. I'd
bleed the system first. Then again, maybe I'm not remembering correctly . .

 Windows update first set a restore point and actually downloaded the file

 I then tried with some more files and found it again would not download

 The Task Manager says that the CPU is being 100% utilized and that
 svchost.exe is the process that is doing the hogging.

 Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I need to reinstall Windows?
