RE: What was your weekend project?
I spent some time in my garage this weekend. I put new brakes Disks and pads) all around but found out that one of my rear calipers has a problem. It only pushes on one side. I wonder how long it has been doing that.
While I was at it I installed front wheel bearings and replaced the rear accumulators. I also replaces the rear and front shocks. I did not have a fun time removing the rear seat but I did find a bunch of toys from my daughters when they were little. That was cute, the Ninja turtles bring so much memories.
I flushed all break fluid, cooling, rear differential, suspension and engine oils. I had a transmission filter handy so I went ahead and replaced the old one.
Installed a thermostat (the old one was strangly running cool) and I put new belts.
Tomorrow I will replace the iginition and spark plug wires, plugs, rotor and distributor.
I will wrap it up with a Beta testing and some EHA current adjustments. Maybe if I have time I will install new vaccuum hoses all around (i have afew feet of that stuff and I am itching to cut some).
As I was working on the car I was tempted to call a buddy (he does AMG mods) of mine in Europe and have him send me an AMG 6.0 engine with a Kompressor. Maybe I will just give this car to theboss since he is looking for a 560 and I will start from scratch. I will think about it.
