I'm not sure how to buy a car without going to look at it, esp if cash 
is involved.  I supposed I could send some dineros via Venmo and send 
someone to collect it

606 is way easier than a 648. I am not about to do two transplants, though.
It would require removing the 606 from the 124.

Well too far for me. I have a good OM617 and transmission in a somewhat
rusty chassis. Maybe this spring I'll repair the rust. Been wanting to
learn how to properly weld.

I basically told him $1k was my tops and let me know if he changes his mind and 
might still be interested. By which time I will offer him $800. Hard to justify 
$1500 for a non turbo with the engine out when I paid $2k for a 85 turbo over

I look at those every few days. The closed auctions so far seem to have gone 
pretty high on the Benzes, no particular bargains but the cars seem in good

I was surprised at the way this MX-5 has gone up in the last hour, then 
I saw the odometer:

Re: [MBZ] 300CD door handle

2018-12-08 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
Yeah I have some extras of those I pulled from junkyard cars and the 420 SEL I 
knackered and maybe a new one somewhere in the stash. I don’t recall it being 
very much $. Is the CD version any different from the sedans?  I think the 
driver side in this CD I have is broken too, was gonna pull one out of the 
rusty TD which I replaced at some point so it is “new”. The SEC is broken too, 
i threw the SEL pull in there to replace at some point.

Re: [MBZ] 300CD door handle

2018-12-08 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
More specifically:

1.) Get a small flat bladed screwdriver.  Pull out on the handle, and near the 
hinge of the handle use the screwdriver to pry the black plastic cover out of 
the frame.  It has a little tab that hold the front edge of it in place, the 
back side of it (the side closest to the handle hinge) is held in with pressure.

2.) With the plastic cover removed, you’ll see a phillips head screw in the 
middle of the frame.  Remove it.

3.) Pull out on the frame and handle and it will come loose from the door card. 
 It will have a metal rod attached to the back of the handle. Pul the rod out 
of the hole in the handle and the handle will now be free.  Reverse the 
procedure to install the new handle.

I can recall doing this on pretty much every new W123 and W126 when I go it, 
since the driver’s door release handles were always worn out and sloppy.

Might I ask what a new door handle costs these days?  Just curious...

If it is similar to a regular 123, there is one screw that holds it in.  
If it has a plastic "pocket" under the latch, you need a sharp stick, or 
a small screwdriver, etc to pull that out from its catches.  Then you 
will see the screw.   Release rod is just held on with a clip.   Easy!

And yes, I would consider a finnie with a diesel. Since turbos were never an

Re: [MBZ] 300CD pahts

2018-05-18 Thread Meade Dillon via Mercedes
Yesterday I changed engine oil / filter on the White Whale, noticed that
the car is WAY overdue for transmission fluid / filter change.  I really
should use that maintenance tracker tool that Dan likes.

Wally world had no Mobil Delvac oil at all, so I got the Chevron Delo 400
SDE, 15w-40.  The Delo is marked as meeting MB 228.31 or maybe .51.

said they were remanufactured Bendix and ATE for whatever that is worth.

I have not looked at the rotors, I am presuming they are kinda rusty and

them up some before putting the new brakes on.  I'm sure the tires are old
too, though they look pretty good, so maybe some more cheepcheep Kumhos are
in the future for it.

I was kinda surprised that reman calipers are now $55-63, last ones I
bought were maybe like $40.  Maybe the chinee are gouging us to get back at
the Trumpinator.

I'll get some fluides for the tranny and engine and brake system and flush
all that out, get this baby on the road then maybe try to sell it unless I
am enjoying it.

Good deal on the calipers - I've gotten them b4.  Rotors are cheap - get
the Tschermann ones from AutohausAZ.

Sure, if a key managed to always get put in the same way it would wear to a

You mean other than the abuse this group is known for? ;)

I'd add pictures and language to show the condition of the coupe specific parts 
(door seals in particular) which are expensive or impossible to find.

I'd add the MB paint code and German or MB name for the color, if indeed the 
official name is not purple.

A picture of the battery tray sans battery, and then the same area sans battery 
tray would be nice.  Pictures of the undersides of the doors (inside bottom 
edge) are also nice.

Good luck with the sale!

Thanks Dwight and thanks Manfred.

I'll be asking more specific parts source questions, I'm sure as I get into
the tear down phase and identify a parts needed li$t.

I agree that IMHO, the 123 Coupe is at the top of the elegant styling of MB
list.
It strongly influenced my desire to own one that is restored to as near
perfection as possible. Besides... it will complete the set.. haha..

Basic rule of thumb for restoration car cost is Original List Price
multiplied by the age, in decades... ie.. $20,000 X 3 [30 yrs.] ,, so ..
yes.. Nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes does fit.
