Hi, well I found this web site and I am in hopes that with others out there I will be able to maintain our new ride. I was given a 1991 300E 2.6L 250M on it, was running and the guy decided with out really knowing what he was doing, decided that the timing chain needed replaced. Well he had the mechanical knowledge of a worm. He split the chain and then dropped the two halfs down inside the front cover. Then decided that it was not worth repairing.
I have been turning wrenches on cars, trucks, motorcycles now for YEARS as a hobby. I am a helicopter mechanic by trade.
I have to say that I am enjoying working on the 300E but techanical information seems to be scarce. VERY frustrating to say the least.
I have figured out that this auto was designed by a mechanic first then a engineer it seems to me, it has been very mechanic friendly (if you know how to turn a wrench that is) more then any other vechical that I have ever worked on before.
Well thats my story folks, glad to be here.
