Re: [MBZ] The CDI

2023-01-18 Thread Rick Knoble via Mercedes
Cool. One thing I used to do is make certain the odometer is accurate. Drive 
down the expressway and take note of the mile markers. Drive from say mile 
marker 162 and note the odo reading. When you get to mile marker 152 or 172 
note the odo reading again. They are usually off. Come up with the correction 
factor and Bob's your uncle.

Subject: [MBZ] The CDI

I went ahead and filled it up. It was at around 430 miles on the tank and was 
about half way between half and a quarter. Cluster said around 45mph since 
reset for that tank. Hand calculated came out to a little over 32mpg. Quite a 
difference. I did not expect it to really be 45 but figured it would be a 
little higher than 32. Still not bad. I’m really starting to think I like the 
ride of the 211 better than the 210. Seems more like a 124 maybe.

Yeah actually it is now not starting, so at least I've reproduced the issue. 
Headlights do not dim when turning the key to start position. I have a remote 
start trigger switch somewhere so I will try that to isolate whether it's the 
clutch safety switch or the starter solenoid. I guess it also could possibly be 
the ignition switch itself. Getting dark now so won't fool with it much more 
tonight. Also will be interested to see if it will start after sitting a while 
and getting cold.

Subject: [MBZ] battery/alternator questions

Nissan Frontier had trouble starting the other night. Just dead, no click, no 
indication starter was engaging at all. Battery seemed good, headlights bright, 
etc but they tried jump-starting it and still nothing. Son had the truck away 
from home and got some help bump-starting it (another good thing about manual 
transmissions) to get it going. Ran fine once started.

Today the truck started fine. Starter sounds maybe a bit slower than I 
remember, but it's also a bit cold today.

The starter is pretty new (NAPA reman installed about 6 months ago, give or 
take). Battery is also new a few months ago.

So my thoughts are perhaps the safety switch on the clutch pedal is worn and 
getting intermittently bad, or the "new" starter is already going bad.

I have not been able to reproduce the "no start" behavior since I've had the 
truck here.

Also, battery voltage after starting while running at idle is 14.4 V. That 
seems a bit high? Is it getting overcharged? With engine off it measures about 
12.6 V, drops to about 12.2 V with headlights on.

Ideas?

Around town yes. Highway? 30ish. I have achieved 32 mpg with no ac driving 
conservatively.

I have seen W210 cars with over 350k miles.

The biggest issue with these cars is rust. Probably not an issue on a car from 
the South.

Subject: [MBZ] OT parts issue

I have a spewing hydraulic line on my little kubota tractor. I replaced one but 
that wasn’t the spewing part so I ordered the other 2, might as well replace 
them all. I went to put the second one on which I now think is the one spewing. 
Slid in OK but the fittings wouldn’t work. One end is a pipe fitting for a 
hydraulic nipple, the other end is a tube fitting to mate up to another line 
that goes somewhere. This new part has the fittings on the wrong ends, swapped 
around. WTF?

I verified on the parts diagram on their website (which is almost as obscure to 
find as parts in the Benz EPC) I had ordered the proper part then called the 
vendor. She verified it was the right part then wanted pics of the new part and 
the one I pulled off so I sent some to her. She sent the pics to Kubota then 
called me back a little while later and said it was the right part but had been 
manufactured backwards. Go figure. Anyway she’s sent me a correct part this 
afternoon and a return label for the bassackards one.

Weird. But good customer service.

I am happy to report I finished up the starter and motor mount replacement and 
the car actually turns over like it should. Now that I have had one run thru of 
a GL 642 starter, I bet I could do the next one in a couple of hours. That 
starter had to be turned and angled just perfect and it just barely slides out. 
Fortunately it’s pretty light. If it was a big heavy starter it might be hard 
to fight it in.

Re: [MBZ] OT - Hot Wheels Easter Egg

2022-12-23 Thread Rick Knoble via Mercedes
The 924 was an "entry level" Porsche. In the late 1980s Porsche decided to move 
more upscale, because in the parlance of some marketing wag, "even plumbers can 
buy a Porsche".
That's when they phased out the 944, and scaled down production to make the 
cars more exclusive.

I used to subscribe to Autoweek in the eighties. That's from a old article I 
recall.
Strange what one remembers.

That's what I heard. I couldn't believe it.

> I think its fixing to be scary and this could have
effects far beyond just the auto industry.

Yep. Especially when lenders come after what they are owed from the previous 
car. Mitch is way more familiar with this, but charged off debt is counted as 
income. The IRS just hired a whole lot of new agents.

Repo's, garnishments, charged off debt, bankruptcies.

This is going to be very, very ugly.
Like October, 1929 ugly.

Re: [MBZ] Have you ever started a new job while overlapping your old job then got a bad feeling about the new job?

2022-12-19 Thread Rick Knoble via Mercedes
Hmm. Perhaps travel will be less of an issue after the first of the year. From 
what I have been reading the auto market is about to collapse. It is very hard 
to justify an $750-$800 a month car payment when one can hardly afford the 
heating and grocery bills. I know folks car shop after tax season, but 
withholding rules changed, and folks that are expecting a large tax return are 
probably in for an unpleasant surprise. I don't see a happy ending here.

You probably have a better feel for the dealer's situations than I do. 
Hopefully, I am wrong.

And yeah, you were probably lied to.

No holster is no bueno. The trigger IS the safety. Keep your booger hooks off 
of the bang switch, no issues. Catch ANYTHING on the trigger (ie hoodie string) 
it's going to go bang. The only modern firearm that has had issues with 
unintentional discharge WITHOUT the trigger being operated is the Sig Sauer 
P320. Those issues have been addressed.

Small engine LS type engine, big engine bay, easy parts availability.

Unimog or original H1 Hummer.

Subject: [MBZ] Update on the 116

After a couple of days alternating using a speedo cable, stiff roll of copper 
wire. And 130lbs of air pressure I finally cleared the return line. I was about 
to throw in the towel and order a new line (which appears to still be 
available), I applied the speedo cable on the drill and bit more, then decided 
to try air one more time. It seems like it was still plugged solid when 
suddenly whatever was in there shot out the other end hitting shop wall like 
bullets. Line is clear! I can now blow air or carb cleaner thru it. I filled 
the line up with carb cleaner again and I think I will just let it sit 
overnight to help further clean the line out. I think I might go ahead and 
lower the car back down and install the tank, then finish hooking it up later 
while the lines sit and soak. I hope to have the thing starting and running on 
its own so I can pull it out and get the GL in for a starter replacement.

of the heaters in the shop.  This thing has an input BTU of 180k.  Would
that run at least one of my heaters?  If so, what parts do I need to
connect them together (manifold etc), do they need regulators?  I know
nothing about propane so need it spelled out for me.  It might just be

Subject: Re: [MBZ] 400E paint

You’ll need some stuff

Random orbit variable speed buffer— I got one off Amazon, was not too much and 
works great, a kit
Foam pads of different “coarseness” — these are different colors and used for 
the different polishing steps, I think some were with the buffer kit but I also 
bought more
Buffing and polishing stuff. I got a package of Meguiars that had clay bars, 
buffing compound, polish, and finishing wax. These are the four steps.

Wash the car well. I washed it yesterday so just went over the hood again and 
left the soapy water on it. Get the clay bar and start in on the paint. This 
thing felt really rough like 300grit sandpaper. Took quite awhile to get it 
knocked down. I have a spray bottle of soapy water too to keep it wet and 
lubricated. Watch the clay bar to make sure the crap from the paint isn’t 
loading it up, you can keep folding it over. I use linear and circular motions, 
whatever works. Keep at it until the paint feels smooth.

Wash off the clay bar stuff and dry off the work area. Get your coarsest pad 
and put some dabs of the buffing compound on it. On this single stage paint I 
spent quite a bit of time on it. The compound is not too aggressive so I’m not 
actually sure how much paint it took down. The pad didn’t turn black so not 
much I guess. On clear coat you’d have to be more careful.

Wipe that stuff off (it dries like wax does) then do the same with polish and a 
lighter pad.

Wipe that off then do the final step with the wax and the lightest pad.

This is not a fast process. To do a whole car would take all day esp if the 
paint is damaged or grungy. I do bits at a time over different days. It’s kinda 
tiring too, even if the machine is doing the work you have to work it all 
around.

The results are pretty amazing. The 040 black CL500 came out looking amazing 
and this 400E is also going to look really good. The final finish is really 
smooth and a lot of imperfections come out. It’s not a miracle but can really 
improve the appearance of a car. The wax step holds up well too as there is not 
a rough finish under it.

Remember the one I looked at last week that I passed on. Well I ended up making 
a deal on it. I drove up this afternoon to get it as part of a “work” trip. I’m 
surprised it didn’t sell immediately after I turned it down. Maybe the marker 
is cooling. Hopefully we don’t get the ice and snow they are talking about 
overnight.  I figured the unusual color and lowish miles, I couldn’t pass it 
up. Now let’s see how long it will sit in the back 40.

I’m going to call the seller this evening and see what the story is. Might be 
ok or it might be total BS. I’ll see. I’ll send details of what I learn. If you 
can talk to someone knowledgeable that would be great. I’d buy the thing anyway 
as long as it isn’t stolen or an ex’s or something. I’m gonna ask if they have 
a valid registration and plates, at least that would be a start, see whose name 
it’s in.

People are truly lazy.

Think how much better that car would look in the photos if they had
cleaned it.

I bought a boat a couple of years ago that had been sitting outside with
moss and algae growing on it. It looked pretty ratty. I used a pressure
washer and when I was done it looked a whole lot better. It had some
shine to it. I had already bought another newer boat so I sold this one
and got 3X what I paid for it, mostly because it looked so much better.
I had intended to do some work on it but the first fellow who came to
look at it decided he wanted right then and was willing to take it as it
was so I didn't end up doing anything to it apart from washing it. I was
prepared to get it running to prove that it ran but never had to do so.

I've got Continental tires on a car. No issues at all. They have like 45k miles 
on them, with great tread. I've got Altimax on another car, but it doesn't get 
the miles put on it. They are round and handle pretty well. Not much noise 
either.

I have some cheap GT Radials on a 210, and I can't really complain. For an 
inexpensive tire, they are pretty good. I would buy them again.

I should've said BEGINNING next year. It was originally slated to be phased out 
January 1st, 2023. The festivities of the last two years and nine months have 
altered that.

I probably would buy it now, even if install is two years away. Between 
inflation, supply chain issues, and the phase out of R410a next year, if you 
don't purchase now, it may not be available later.

Re: [MBZ] EV's

2022-10-11 Thread Rick Knoble via Mercedes
> These things are still toys, only suitable for well-defined commuting.
Not work.


There was an OT Benzworld thread on EVs  that popped up on an email feed. This 
is my response.

Unless John Deere is going to make electric combines and tractors, locomotives 
stop using diesel fuel, and semi trucks become electric, EVs are a virtue 
signal. A refinery can only skew the crude crack a few percentage points one 
way or the other as far as end products go. You like asphalt on your roads? You 
need to refine crude. You like plastic for all the purposes it serves? You need 
to refine crude. If you still refine crude and have no demand for gasoline, the 
price drops precipitously or it becomes a waste product to be flared off, much 
like natural gas on an oil rig. There is currently no fuel source with as much 
Btu capacity per pound as refined petroleum products, save perhaps nuclear 
energy.

Build thorium powered nuclear plants, use Fischer Troupsch to turn coal into 
diesel and gasoline and the planet is saved. TPTB don't want a solution. They 
want control.

Depending on your definition of "affordable", that sentence is incongruent. 
Perhaps after the fall.

Rick
And yes, "after the fall" is meant to be a double entendre.
