New Member Intro

Hi There, new member here.

My name, interestingly enough, is Chris North. My Benz is a 1991 420 SEL. I am an engineer by trade, currently working for a down-hole oil tool manufacturer (we make drilling tools).

I am interested in learning to work on the car. It needs a new fuel pump and new ball joints. I've done front-ends on Chrysler cars and trucks, but I'm thinking of letting a shop do this one. I am thinking of replacing the fuel pump myself. Any tips? The reason I don't want to do the front end is I don't have the tools to replace the bushings and ball joints. In looking things up, I seems the fuel pump is easy enough that even an engineer could do it.

Anyway, hello folks, and I hope you don't mind questions.
