Did not notice horiz.spring....
I was able to install new engine belts Saturday and repair brake line
But my problem is no alternator adjuster anywhere... So I am trying to figure out how to tension the alternator belts as I went with the double belt setup per oem .?this took 7 hours
Water box is AOK. Rubber bushing are cracking but I will put that on back burner
The attached manual pages don't really resemble my set .

She looks beautiful. Keep the pictures coming. The waterbox grill has to be lifted in order to inspect it . Obtain new plastic rivets first before attempting the inspection. Good luck with finding a tensioner. You might consider manufacturing your own temporary setup. Harald.

It's hart to diagnose from a fare, but if the wire you are speaking of is on the left side of the engine in the middle, it would be the temperature sending unit. Hope it still works,
otherwise you have to replace the whole unit and they are not easy to come by.
Cheers.H.

use 80/90 w in rear axle [ common type of oil ] , last on the alternator belts , at the beginning they used 2 belts , one 9.5 by 935 around 3 pullies , and one 740 by 9.5 from alternator to water pump [ 2 pullies ].this did not end up by been a great move , so MB later on said to no longer install the 9.5 by 740 .use only one belt .you have 3 pages going on on 1 subject .

Thanks a lot Agillot & Over 75
Now I understand the alt. belt situation It's one thing to actually be the person with your head inside a old MB .u know what I mean?justwanna do it right
Plus the diff oil type thanks as I was advi to us 50w
I have just completed total belt replacement tonight
Need one plug wire as they are orig german MB then I will fire it up
and attempt to drive
air cleaner element looked new its orange and stamped in german so i wouldassume the old madam had it to a benz shop in NYC 12 years ago front carb butterfly was closed and rear fly was at half I guess this is normal ?
but I think brakes will be issue

Incidentally , this morn I went to a car .title specialist and they told me the only way I can keep original A ( movie actress owned title was to not title it as an classic or antique as PA state law dictates that I must turn it in fora new labeled classic or antique registration
So this has me thinking



Than

Both butterflies should close when cold with a 3/16" gab.[ Drill size] Try some W 40 for lubrication or use same brake cleaner to remove crud. There is lots of info. in the forum
on your carbs. Question. Do you own that garage ?
Good luck. H.

Can you retitle it normally, get a new title, then surrender that to get the classic/antique registration?

Es könnte eine deutsche Rostlaube sein, aber es ist meine deutsche Rostlaube.
