i have a 220b that was sitting in a underground garage for the past 28 years and i trying to get it moving in order to take it to my garage.So far i managed to start the engine,and i dealt with the following problems:
1.Before even starting it, it was obvious that the brakes were stacked,so i removed the master cylinder and i sprayed it with some wd-40 inside-out and left it overnight after dissembling it i noticed that there was some corrosion-ware on the bottom back side(would it be a problem?)i cleaned it and put it back together and and it moving smoothly now.I haven't fit it yet to the car,and i am not sure if i should flush all the brake fluid and check-clean each drum(i am afraid that they will be stack as well) or should i just fit it and see if they work?
2.After i started the engine it stopped after releasing the key.I noticed that if i make tiny movements to the key in the running position the red indicator light flashes,and if i start it and leave a small tension on the key it will work very smooth,is there any way i can fix it?
3.The clutch pedal have a normal feel when i press it ,but when i tried to put 1st while the engine was running it stopped immediately...the clutch master cylinder seems to be working but it probably cannot separate the clutch disks,is there anything that i should check (if its an easy fix),or do in order to get it working?
4.After starting i kept it running in order to check if the thermostat works and it raised 90 degrees Celsius and i turned it off to prevent it from damage.What is the normal working temperature,on ebay i found same with 75 and 87 degrees Celsius.
Any idea is welcomed
thanks in advantage
