Drove the E420 back from Memphis y'day. The platinum plugs appreciated the nice five hour interstate runs to-from Memphis, as the usual 15 mile daily commute was getting them gunked up and grumpy... -MMM- On Mon, Sep 7, 2015 at 5:02 PM, archer75--- via Mercedes < mercedes@okiebenz.com> wrote:

I'm not sure I understand. There's nothing external to my pump that would be involved with a quick rise function. It's got something to do with the valving. Dan > On Sep 7, 2015, at 6:02 PM, archer75--- via Mercedes > wrote: > > >> I would start earlier if it wasn't

I would start earlier if it wasn't for everyone else being asleep and it waking them up. Got the floor jack rebuilt. Replaced the seal on the ram from my HF $8 box of O rings. Nice. The rapid rise feature still doesn't work. Not sure why, but there's a tool forum that has a section on floor

I have done further study, and it appears that there is valving that controls this feature. I’m going to tinker with it to see if I can get the feature to return. Dan > On Sep 8, 2015, at 3:26 PM, OK Don via Mercedes wrote: > > I think that when the external force

Then your pump must be a different design. Mine has two external pistons and a slotted lever with a sliding pin. It also has a foot pedal that operates the quick-lift in addition to the handle. If the pin doesn't slide, then the smaller slow rise piston doesn't go down and all that works is

I think that when the external force required to move the lift pad is too high, it goes slow. So, if you lube the whole thing, you can eliminate that as the cause, or you've just fixed it with a few blasts of your favorite aerosol lubricant. If this fixes it, then use a good grease for longer

Intriguing! I hadn't considered such a modification for my '87 wagon, I was focusing on finding a temperature switch with lower set-points. I did find one that is lower, I think it drops the aux fan engagement temperature to 110 Celsius, but if I can bring that even lower with your idea, I
