Re: [MBZ] My new lift

2021-09-23 Thread Dimitri Seretakis via Mercedes
It is a 2 post Mohawk System 1A -10. It uses hydraulics for equalization, not 
cables like inferior lifts such as rotary and all the rest. The hydraulic lines 
cross over up top but a kit is available to route under the concrete. If you 
are creative you can route the lines around walls etc. 

Mohawk is what municipalities, government, military etc use. It’s a forever 
lift. Much better built than the competition. Jaime has one too. He turned me 
onto them in fact.

When I grew up in Greece, the lowlife gypsies who would rent their children out 
to beg in the streets and pick pocket the tourists drove the nasty hilux and 
Datsun pickup trucks. Now it’s the taliban. Either way the trucks seem to 
appeal to the lowest form of human garbage.

[MBZ] Glow plugs loop style

2021-08-02 Thread Dimitri Seretakis via Mercedes
My brother’s 78 240D with series type plugs doesn’t start without excessive 
cranking. The strip fuse appears intact, the plugs as well but we replaced them 
for good measure. Turns out there appears to be no power to the strip fuse so 
I’m guessing the relay is bad? I don’t want to just throw expensive parts at 
the car. The relay is around $200. Is it reasonable to assume it’s bad at this 
point? Can it be tested?

Interior chimneys seem common here in the colder climates.
There were a bunch of missing shingles around the chimney and since they were 
replaced the leak seems to have gone away.

So I had the opportunity to delve into this problem again on my brother’s 1989 
300TE- rear left window going down spontaneously. As many of you suspected the 
problem does indeed lie in the wiring harness between the b pillar and rear 
door. One wire is sheared in half while others have cracked and missing 
insulation. How do I fix this? Is there a replacement window harness available? 
I can’t see crimping the wires together working in this location as the flexing

[MBZ] Wheel paint code?

2021-07-23 Thread Dimitri Seretakis via Mercedes
Is there a wheel paint code? I’m getting the set of 15 hole alloys that Max 
sent me refinished and the wheel refurbishers tell me there’s no paint code. 
They were supposed to strip, powder coat prime and then paint and clear to 
match oem color as best as possible.  Instead they decided to just powercoat 
them and they look very off. Too dark, no vibrancy or depth.  Look like gray 
primer with some metal flake. They will redo them but thought I’d get some more 
info on possible paint codes  before handing them back.

Wow. Andrew, perhaps you should consider not selling your 300TD.

It doesn’t work at all. The window is stuck in the down position.

[MBZ] W124 window gremlins

2021-07-03 Thread Dimitri Seretakis via Mercedes
My brother has a 1989 300TE and the left rear window went down it’s own- that 
is the motor wound it down without actuating the switch. We took the door panel 
off and disconnected the switch and reconnected it and the window went up again 
after we actuated the switch but then went down again on its own. We replaced 
switch with a new one and nothing. Can this be a wiring issue?

Sell as is or fix and then sell and buy a real car like a Mercedes w123 or w124 
or even a w211. If you need to haul stuff get a wagon version. Life is too 
short to drive garbage!

[MBZ] W124 rear brake hard lines

2021-06-24 Thread Dimitri Seretakis via Mercedes
So I took the 300D to a mechanic the other day to get the AC working and he 
decides to do a check over of the entire car. He tells me that the rear brake 
lines are badly rusted which I knew and was planning to replace myself once I 
get my 2 post lift in September. He tells me that they started leaking badly 
after he probed them to determine the extent of the rust and that now the car 
is not driveable and that the rear subframe would have to be dropped in order 
to do properly and will cost thousands in labor!

I just wanted my damn AC fixed! I didn’t ask for any other stuff! So now what? 
Is it true that subframe needs to be dropped? I may just tell him to finish the 
AC and I will drive the car home adding brake fluid as needed and deal with the 
brake line repairs myself!
