[MBZ] Transmission Toast?

2015-06-07 Thread Curly McLain via Mercedes

Is slipping in high gear a fatal symptom to the 240D auto trans?  (1981)

yes, it flares at every shift.  i shift manually and try to let up on 
the pedal and try to minimize the flare.  We also don't drive it too 
far from home.

I agree, but getting out the pedal set was a royal pain.  I am not 
sure I can contort enough to get the new pedal set in.  The rest of 
it is pretty straightforward.


One other thing I am considering is a 82-83 trans with the big box 
doohicky that sits on the side between the IP and the oelfilter. 
That box replaces the vacuum valve that sits on top of the valve 
cover.


If you want to come through and donate some kids' time to RR the 
pedal set and master cyl, id be happy!  We can all go to Hickory 
Park...

 If I remember correctly, the 240D flywheel is balanced
 separately from the shaft, so all I need to do is swap
 flywheels to get started. (and buy a pilot bearing)


That's what I recall.

I have also read of folks who used the 4 cyl flywheel for a 5
cyl car and it worked ok


Yeah, I put the OM621 flywheel on the OM616 in the 200D 2.4.  It had 
a big counterbalance on it.  I ground off the counterbalance and 
balanced the flywheel on a tire spin balance machine.  Its been 17 
years now and still ok, but not much use since 2007.  That was over a 
long weekend, and no access to machine shops.  I did have access to 
the tire balance machine.  A guy had agreed to sell me a flywheel but 
when I went to get it, he decided he didn't want to sell it.  He only 
had 20 some parts cars.  A miniature Kaleb.

[MBZ] Transmission Toast?

2015-06-06 Thread Curly McLain via Mercedes
the 81 240D (auto) will slip some in high gear if you try to 
accelerate hard.  I am thinking the auto transmission is toast. 
Anyone had this experience before.  It is the same as a worn out 
clutch in a manual trans car when it slips in  the highest gear in 
acceleration.


Unfortunately it is the one year only transmission.  no cable.

I guess it is about time to get out the 4 speed and do the manual conversion.

I've never heard that.  I would have a machine shop match-balance the old 
driven plate to the new flywheel, be sure to mark clock orientation on crank, 
old plate and new flywheel.

Max is correct. The shop manual shows a procedure for transferring the
balance of an old flywheel to a new flywheel. I did not do that in my
conversion for various reasons and was fortunate things worked out.

Wow Rusty!!
That's something you should really advertise!  It's *very* rare to get that 
kind of service from rebuilt *anything* !  Should splash it across your home

page!

It's one of the many things that seperates you from the parts sellers of the

world.  You;re a real parts service provider.
