[MBZ] Moving a storage shed

2022-07-01 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
I have a storage building at the other house I have been thinking about moving 
here. It has some damage on the side of the roof and needs a panel replaced  
which needs to be done before it rots out. Anyway, with using my trailer with 
12k winch, and possibly my tractor, anybody have any ideas on moving this 
thing? When we had it moved in, it came from my great grandmothers house and my 
wife’s ex father in law moved it for us using my car trailer and winch. I think 
he had a couple of guys help him but I would most likely be alone.

That’s the best outcome. Bonus points if it happens before they can get the

Yep. Gas gets cheaper in upstate SC because the pipeline goes through
up that way. Down here it is shipped or barged in I guess.


Last night 87 was $4.839 here and $4.599 in a town 15 miles away.
This afternoon I filled the Saturn and my mom's lawnmower can, $4.799, 
or 4.749 with my Marathon Cents Off.
Filled the Saturn and $10 in mom's mower for $54. Reminds me of the time 
15 years ago I put $64 in the 190E, but that was considerably less than 
$4.75/gallon in 2007 dollars.
I checked Costco just now, it's 4.859, so I got a pretty good deal 
beating that by 11 cents (plus 5% for Freedom Rewards).

Well a car like that would be best for a rat rod, keep it Benz though 
but keep it alive with some other bits.  500 engine, 606, something 
cool, use some newer suspension etc.  Get out the welder and cutoff 
wheel...   Restoration would be cost prohibitive but having fun with it 
would be, well, fun.  I know that is borderline sacrilege but it would 
likely only get parted out for some other project car then scrapped.

Could be wiring problems or ignition or fuel pump.  If not wiring 
probably nothing too deadly.


Might be worth $1500 to someone wanting to fool around with it.

[MBZ] Another oil thread

2022-07-01 Thread mitch--- via Mercedes
Might have something to do with prices I found on normally cheap grade 
fluids after Curt's tractor transmission thread.


My local oil expert says:

Motiva and Chevron being down at the same time will turn the group 2 
market on its head.


But most places are stocking up from what I can tell.

However it’s going to make group 3 products a bargain.

Group 2 products are your “conventional” products. Hydraulic oils, gear 
oils, non full synthetic motor oils.


Group 3s are considered full synthetics in the US.

Re: [MBZ] Is diesel going up or down?

2022-07-01 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
Not to get political, but it is political.  To pretend otherwise is 
nonsense.


In the words of a primary administration economic adviser:

Biden economic advisor Brian Deese said that Americans should 'stand 
firm' on paying record-high gas prices because the 'future of the 
liberal world order' is more important.


'What do you say to those families that say, 'listen, we can't afford to 
pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years?' the director of the 
National Economic Council was asked on CNN 
 Thursday.


'What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the 
stakes. This is about the future of the Liberal World Order and we have 
to stand firm,' he replied.


Deese added: 'At the same time, what I would say to that family and 
Americans across the country is you have a president and an 
administration that is going to do everything in its power to blunt 
those price increases and bring those prices down.'

[MBZ] The 07 bluetec

2022-07-01 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
Got it home. I think it’s going to need a new chain and tensioner as it has a 
loud rattle for about a second when first started cold. I checked down the oil 
hole looking at the tensioner and didn’t see any holes visible. Supposedly the 
holes showing indicate the tensioner is extended too far. Have not hooked up 
the laptop yet to see what the codes are but assuming it is a plugged DPF I 
wonder what the chances are I can pull it off and clean it out?

Probably going up. In years past the price of diesel fuel would drop in the 
summer months, because of reduced demand for heating oil. The price doesn't 
drop anymore because a lot of refined diesel gets exported. Gotta love the 
"global economy".

I just got back into town from picking up the bluetec. I’m down to 1/4 tank of 
diesel on the truck, I wonder if I should go ahead and fill up, or wait and see 
if it drops. It seems to have dropped a little bit, but have seen that before

Ssshhh. Don't tell anyone, but there are pipelines that crisscross the country, 
taking all manner of petroleum distillates to various places. Not so many going 
to the Southeastern part though. Hence the Colonial pipeline debacle a while 
back.

Also, look up "The Jones Act" if you want to know why fuel isn't transported by

I glance at it occasionally, and from what I can tell it’s not coming down 
anywhere near the way gasoline has come down.

Fuel is cheap(er) in the Tampa area due to a constant parade of tankers (ships) 
running back and forth between Houston and Tampa. Nearly all the fuel on the 
west coast of FL goes through terminals in Tampa, so we’re right at the mouth 
of the spigot, so to speak.

Re: [MBZ] Is diesel going up or down?

Fuel is always noticably cheaper in the South.

I assume its becaue it's closer to major refineries in the gulf? Maybe lower 
taxes as well.

Completely nanny free hotrod that you can buy parts for at any local FLAPS
and that requires no interface with long and NLA supply of Mercedes parts
for 3 to 10 times the price.
In a twisted way, it makes some sense unless you know and understand

Re: [MBZ] Runs on starting fluid - 74 450SL - $2,500

2022-06-29 Thread OK Don via Mercedes
A 1977 or later exhaust manifold will bolt right up, then install the later
exhaust system and you are good to go. BTDT (almost, '75 block in a '78
SLC). Yes - the manual HVAC would be a really nice plus - worth changing
the exhaust manifold and system for IMHO.

The only thing wrong with 76 is the underhood cats, which are probably
gutted by now.  They get in the way a bit.  Plusses to the 76: manual HVAC,
no D-Jetronic.  We had one.  Pretty nice little car, really.

[MBZ] W210 Instrument Cluster Rebuild

2022-06-28 Thread dan penoff.com via Mercedes
With BBA Reman recently going out of business and needing the instrument 
cluster for my 1998 W210 wagon rebuilt due to the pixels in the LCD getting 
wonky, I went on a search for a rebuilder to sort things out.

I found a place in Idaho called “Module Master” https://modulemaster.com and 
sent it to them for a rebuild.

Got the cluster back last week and popped it in the car last night. After 
clearing the CEL and errors that were due to me having to move the car with the 
cluster out, all was well and my cluster returned to like-new condition. They 
replaced the ribbon connector, a capacitor, all of the lamps and cleaned it. 
Now I can actually tell what the odometer reading is. On the W210 this is 
especially important, as the mileage is stored in the cluster, not in an ECU or 
other part on the car. That means if you replace the cluster, you inherit 
whatever the odometer reading is in that cluster.

With this in mind I wanted to preserve the correct miles on the car, so 
rebuilding the cluster was really the only choice. The cost was $150 plus the 
return shipping ($25). Not a bad deal.
