Let it run for a while and both fans are running. The only thing I can think of 
as to why the one fan was not running is if you are not careful the wiring in 
the area can drop down and get caught in the fan. Maybe that is what happened. 
Working on putting the cover back on which is a bear.

I have the freezer running now and the fans reinstalled. That temp switch it 
mounted right on the evaporator so I am assuming once it cools down enough then

Yea, I do not take any credit for their schematic. Since the fans are 
wired together I am not really sure why one would run but the other 
would not yet both powered up fine with power applied directly.  I am 
going to reinstall the fans and let the unit run for a while.  I am 
assuming the evaporator needs to cool down to a certain point to close 
that switch and power up the fans.  Will see what happens.

The evap fans have to run together.  If they don't, there's something wrong 
with the
fan, or the wires to them.

[MBZ] commercial freezer

2022-06-25 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes


The new thermostat and evaporator fan arrived and I replaced the 
thermostat.  Compressor kicks on fine.  Before all this is had  one of 
the 2 evaporator fans not running.  I ordered a replacement but when the 
unit kicked on, neither one of them were running.  They should run when 
the 2 door contact switches are closed.  I checked the voltage when my 
meter and when the door switches are closed its getting around 18 
volts.  Nowhere near 115 it should be.  I then went ahead and pulled 
both fans and both up with power is directly applied.  So, I guess the 
motors are fine but first I wonder why one of them was not working and 
why now neither of them are?  Both motors are wired together then wire 
into the freezer but appears one of the leads runs thru a round 2 pole 
switch or sensor of some sort mounted up above the right fan near the 
evaporator. I wonder if it is some sort of temperature switch.  In 
looking at the attached wiring diagram, I am thinking it could be the 
defrost termination switch.  I wonder if the thing has to cool down a 
certain amount before the switch closes and powers on the fans?  Or 
perhaps this switch is bad.  I guess I need to see if i can bypass it 
and see what happens.___

Aside from the pollution caused by making the batteries, I think the real

Well yea I’m sure one of the fans not running was not good, but I bet that 
thermostat was going bad and not shutting off when it should and now it doesn’t 
turn on at all. I bet it used a lot less power once I fix it.

[MBZ] Carports

2022-06-18 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
There used to be places all over that sold those metal carport kits usually 
installed. Used to be they were $695 for a single car one and something like 
$995 for a double car. I then used to see them for about $1200 not sure if it 
was the single or double. Been thinking about getting one or several for Okie 
acres and about the cheapest I find them now is nearly $2k for just a 12’ wide 
one. Geez.

[MBZ] Commercial freezer

2022-06-18 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
The wife has a large 2 door commercial freezer in the garage that she 
uses for her business.  The thing has a massive compressor and uses a 
ton of electricity.  Anyway, a few weeks ago we were going to be out of 
town for a week and it was empty, so I unplugged it so it would not be 
running.  Before that, the thing seems like it runs most of the time and 
rarely if ever shuts off.  I have tried messing with the thermostat and 
if not careful, will get it to where it never kicks on.  Anyway, not the 
issue at hand.  When I plugged it back in the thing now seems to have no 
power at all.  I tested the outlet and its fine.  I would think even if 
the compressor or start capacitor was dead the fans etc would still come 
on.  This is a True freezer from 1999 and is as mechanical as it gets.  
It has the old mechanical dial defrost timer which I have rotated around 
and it does not kick on.  I watched a few videos on a similar problem 
and it was some burned wires in the electrical box/plug outlet that goes 
to the compressor.  I have attached the wiring diagram.  Anything stand 
out that I should check?  I saw a fuse listed on the diagram and assumed 
it was a circuit breaker looking switch mounted to the side of the power 
box in the front of the freezer.  I disconnected the wires from it and 
bypassed and it still did not work.  I have not see a different fuse or 
anything like that.  Thoughts?___

[MBZ] A question about resurrection of an old gas car

2022-06-18 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
I bought this fairly nice 79 450SEL a while back. It is silver with blue 
leather and the leather is in great shape except for one spot in the back by 
the windshield. That is mostly the reason I bought it. Body is in great shape 
with just a very minimum amount of rust which is mostly surface starting on the 
black rocker panels. They are still very solid just need to be sanded down and 
painted. I have no idea how long the car sat but supposedly it belonged to a 
preacher. The guy I bought it off of had it an unknown about of time and it sat 
outside at a storage lot. I picked it up 6-8 months ago and had no inside 
storage for it so it sat outside as well. I wanted to get it in the shop and 
try to get it running before it rusted to pieces outside. I pulled it in last 
week and disconnected the fuel lines at the FD, got it on the lift to inspect 
the underside and of course fuel pump is locked up. Disconnected the hose 
coming out of the tank and it’s currently draining very old and nasty fuel. 
Sort of a trickle so I would guess the screen in the tank is plugged up 
somewhat. Also when removing the fuel cap I can feel the neck and it’s got lots 
of residue in it. Obviously I will replace the pump and filter. I also need to 
pull the screen. What size socket is it and can it be done with the axle in 
place on a 116? I ca. easily see it but appears the axle might be an obstacle. 
Speaking of which both have cracked boots and leaking oil badly. Does anybody 
have an approach to clean out the tank in place, or should I plan on removing 
it? I would guess the fuel level sender is also stuck. My initial thought is to 
at least get it where it will start and run then sell it. I was half tempted to 
keep it but most likely will not.

Didn't you buy like half a dozen every time it went on sale for $79?

R134a is planned obsolesce, just like R12 and R22 were.
They've wanted to force yf1234 for the past five years. The good news

The bad news is it cost about $125lb back in 2017, I don't know what

Re: [MBZ] OT Extended Warranty success story

2022-06-16 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
Warranties are a 3rd party product that the dealer sells. It’s a huge profit 
center for them. There are basically 2 sides of a dealership. The fixed ops 
side which is parts and service, and the variable ops side which is sales. In a 
car deal, it is a 3 legged stool basically the dealer makes money on. First is 
the gross on the car. Next is what they will make on your trade. And finally is 
F This is when you are in the box after negotiating the price and they sign 
the paperwork. This is really just another sales session where they sell you 
aftermarket’s and warranties. This is also where they make most of their money 
if they are not making all that much on the front end. Also, they make money on 
the financing. Let’s say they hang your paper at a local credit union, bank, or 
even a national lender. That lender comes back at 3% on the deal and they allow 
a 2 point markup. Dealer can then sell it to you at anywhere from 3-5%. So if 
dealers signs you at 5% they are making 2 on your loan. Also depending on the 
situation if you are a prime customer different lenders may also pay the dealer 
a fixed amount to send them the deal which the F manager typically pockets. 
If you are subprime, the dealer might actually have to pay the lender a fee to 
get the deal bought. That’s why you might see cars listed for x amount but when 
somebody with low credit wants to buy it, not only are they going to pay a 
higher interest rate they also raise the price of the car in order to cover the 
fee. 

In other words, there is a lot involved in a car dealership and a lot of 
crooked stuff happens. Even if the dealer is not crooked, they are making money 
every step of the way. 

In normal time, a dealer would gross maybe $1500 on a used car. On new 
sometimes they didn’t make anything except the hold back, which is a fixed 
among the OEM pays the dealer per car sold. Sometimes they might make $400. Now 
days the average gross is $5-6k in the front end, not including the back end 
gross which could be another $2k or more. Some of these stores are doing over a 
million a month in gross, not even counting fixed ops.

Can’t say I have ever seen or heard of that happening. It’s usually a money 
making deal for them. They basically have the tow truck driver labor, car 
brings a few hundred to a few thousand at “auction” and it’s nearly all profit. 
 Maybe it’s different there but if so, that would be crazy.

So he paid the tow company then sold it to a recycler which almost paid for the 
tow? In other words he was net negative on it? If that is the case why didn’t 
he just let the tow company have it?

Well we were in Branson this weekend and it’s just getting worse and worse 
these as far as these type of people. At one point I was sitting in the w210 in 
the Walmart parking lot and this punk ass in a big truck with Texas plates 
backs his truck in next to mine where his drivers side is on my passenger side. 
He had to be 5-6” from my car. He gets out just fine somehow but getting back 
in he of course opens his door on my car. He then just stares at me while I 
give him the “I’m about to get out of this car and beat your ass look”. No 
sorry, no nothing. I was getting ready to get out of the car and go around and 
slam my door into his nice new truck but he hauled ass out of there. Wtf? The 
whole weekend was filling with people like this, or people that absolutely 
could not drive.

Pull into gas station, all 4 diesel pumps are occupied so I pull in behind a 
fiat 500 with nobody in sight. Finally she shows up out of the store after 
doing her shopping and stares at me pointing to all the other empty gas pumps. 
She then proceeds to pump. You mean she has not even start yet. After she 
finished she once again gives me the stink eye and points to the other pumps. I 
roll the window down and inform her she is occupying the diesel pump lane. She 
had Texas plates but appeared to be from California, or so she behaved.

Re: [MBZ] Harbor Fright Tools

2022-06-11 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
I have shit piles of tools in a disorganized state; but I think I was to just 
stock in new tools in the new box from the start then sort out the rest of my 
tools later. 

The motor mounts could be done in 30 minutes in the Okie shop on the lift

Basically yes, but doesn’t really matter if he gives them the title or not. If 
the car was worth something and he offered the title, they might actually pay 
him something for it but if not, it’s not worth bothering with.

No, because you would have to pay the fee to the tow yard before selling it to

Re: [MBZ] Car Disposal?

2022-06-08 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
If he doesn’t want the truck, he doesn’t need to do anything. The tow company 
will “auction” it off to themselves then put it out back for parts, or sell it 
to a salvage yard. He won’t need to pay them anything. Around here a lot of the 
tow companies are also salvage yards.

[MBZ] Stupid brake lite switch

2022-06-07 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
The other day I got the BAS ASR error after I hit the brakes.  It 
cleared up on its own after I restarted the car.  Figured it was brake 
lite switch time.  I knew I bought 2 and installed one, so I have one I 
the shelf.  Today it happened again and of course cruise does not work 
when this happens.  Guess what, I don't have one on the shelf.  Just a 
used one that I am not sure if it is good or not.  I would order from RM 
but that will take a week.  Autozone has one for $30, a Duralast brand, 
that if I ordered within the next hour will ship to home tomorrow.  I 
have a lot of long distance driving happening this week and the rest of 
the month and do not want to be out cruise control.  I see MSRP for a 
dealer part is $17.  I wonder what the chances are my local dealer will 
have one on the shelf I can get tomorrow?  Otherwise there is an 
Autozone in Tulsa that shows to have one.  I am still going to order a 
couple with my regular RM order.

Yea, it is just the Revparts database, not even close to EPC, very basic.

For instance, you can’t get the part number and price for the switches on my ML

Some expert somewhere is predicting fuel prices will be double their 
current price within a year.  You would think the demand would already 
be down since nobody wants to work and they are just sitting at home.  I 
can't figure out how they are paying their bills though.

Best gas price here is $4.79 for 87, diesel is hanging at $5.99 most places 
although I did spot one at $6.27 last night.

Our neighbor went camping on the cape yesterday, he said there wasn't a lot of 
traffic coming home. Until demand goes down substantially prices aren't going 
to follow.

That said I think if prices go any higher people will stop driving and demand 
will fall. I think the idea of $10 gas is ludicrous.

[MBZ] Tire tubes

2022-06-05 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
I was successful in installing a tube in the leaking 24” rear tire on the lawn 
mower. It took a little bit of messing with it as when I aired it up at first 
it was leaking from the valve stem. It was in the hole at a slight angle I 
guess this caused it to leak. After a little bit of messing with it got it 
positioned perfectly straight and it now holds air. That could have been the 
deal with the one on the front tire.

[MBZ] 61x starter replacement

2022-06-04 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
At some point I am going to need to replace the starter on a 240D. It looks 
like there is enough room to do it from above. Is this correct or am I better 
off getting it on the lift? What about a 617 turbo?

[MBZ] Why do I screw around with cheap solutions

2022-06-03 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
Ordered tubes for the lawnmower tires instead of new tires because it was much 
cheaper. Get tube in. Tire still leaks the same as before. I can only conclude 
I poked a hole in the tube getting the tire back on. In the meantime it’s so 
bad I may have to brush Hog the yard. Maybe somewhere local has a tire and/or 
wheel.

I do have a rim clamp tire machine which I would think would make it 
easier if it goes down that small.  The problem is I think that rear 
tire probably needs to be replaced but those are around $130 each.

typically they are a pain to get on the rim, if it’s not a huge amount more a 
tire and wheel assembly is a whole lot less work.

Definitely get a tub if you get a new tire though.

tire, the wheel and tire, put a tube in it, or try fix a flat?

When I got the lawn tractor out this year it had a flat tire and another 
low tire.  I aired it up but the one front tire looked iffy.  Went to 
mow today before it starts raining again and it was flat.  Tried to air 
it up and it has a big crack in the side wall and wont hold air at all.  
One of the back tires was also low again.  When dealing with these, is 
it better to just replace the tire, the wheel and tire, put a tube in
