This procedure solved the same problem that you describe for me.

Here is a link to the instructions:



Pages 24-25: Choke Gaps



Try this first, it should only take about 30 minutes.



As for the correct "rod" that is described in step no. 6 I just went to

my drill bit set and took a MM ruler and found a bit that was the right

diameter. I used that to adust the opening. Now on a cold start, I can

slowly or quickly push on the accelerator and there is NO hesitation or

dieing of the engine at all.

Excellent! I think my problem must be on the simple side, and hopefully just a single problem. It's as if I VERY VERY slowly accelerate I can avoid the problem, or if I just smash the gas pedal I get a b, b, brrrrrvroooom! So I can usually get past it especially once the car is warmed up.

I went out to the car after my wife fell asleep to tighten the visors, maybe try to make a speaker grill cover, and take it out for its first highway cruise. On the return, I took a video (after confirming the car was up for it). It seems like the engine is really made for high rpms. Listen to this Bee Buzz... I hit xx MPH and figured that was enough of that until I get the car checked over more carefully.

Edit: I trimmed this clip because I didn't have much to gain by showing that I can break the speed limit. All I think I need to say is that the car felt like it would have kept going to 100 if I wanted to try. When I stopped accelerating it was just because I knew that it's not wise to take a cheap car to that speed. The ride did however make me realize that this car really might be worth saving.

Thank you! I had seen that picture, and assumed it was the thread mentioned.

So I guess they don't rotate more than just a few degrees then. The back one it rotated (top) towards the passenger fender while the front one is rotated more towards the engine (closed). I am guessing they should line up with each other when both closed.

Thank you!

They also have one that covers the Weber conversion and from 1985, which I believe uses components from JAM Engineering.

PM sent.

When I only owned a 107, I looked at the price and the back if the book while still wrapped in plastic after my wife gave it to me. I considered dumping it on ebay because I get the majority of my information here, and from manuals. I sure am glad I decided to open it up. http://www.bentleypublishers.com/mer...ndex-page.html

It makes me consider subscribing to the star magazine.



Edit: seeking where in the world I found the PDF linked here on BW, I didn't take note of where I found that link. It is in some BW thread. While seeking out the thread, I stumbled upon this thread that I want to make sure I read all the way through at some point: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/vint...e-problem.html And I never found the definitive source for the Zenith-2.pdf, but I did find that in our sticky "online resources" thread. All the Zenith PDFs seem to be there and even one for the accelerator pump.

So I've been reading back through some posts, and wonder if my stumbling is not due to the accelerator pump at all. My stumbling is carb farts possibly small backfires through the carb and gasses coming from that funnel into the air filter.

Others say that they got stumbling when they floored it, but it was ok when they accelerates gently. I get kind of the opposite. The longer I try to accelerate at a normal pace, the longer the sputtering and carb farts. Maybe I need some vacuum retard. Maybe I'm suffering from a warped carb. I see others have plugged their vacuum retard (bottom connection on the pod).

I've got a lot to learn.

Best place for w114 and m130 info.

I've been letting the car sit, but instead of wasting any more time shopping for front euro plates I got this one. I considered the "Parts Car" custom plate, but figured this is a little less cheesy.Best place for w114 and m130 info.-imageuploadedbyautoguide1395962705.596684.jpg

And a few days ago I took a video after I picked up the pieces of trash from the interior. After looking at a 1972 250c Coupe (with a nice rust-free trunk, good exhaust, and many good bits... That I might still consider buying), I think I've decided that I got a damn good deal on mine.



That should be enough of the cosmetics for a long time.

I just re-dyed some seats on my MG and could not believe how well this stuff worked. used a mr clean sponge with it. I have never seen a product clean vinyl like this stuff did.

Thank you!

Does anyone know if coupe and sedan seats are interchangeable?

I appreciate the vinyl in this car. Here's a shot of the moldy interior of the coupe I checked out. Not sure you could bring that back from where it is right now.

Here's also some pics of another coupe that has some rear end damage that I think I could get for about twice as many dollars as the above coupe. Maybe this one with rear end damage could be fixed with the rear end of that white interior coupe... Or maybe parts from this blue one could be used to restore the one with the white interior. Of the three, I think it looks like my rusty car is the strongest "survivor". The one with the white interior not only has rotted rockers, but rotted rear floors too. Sad.

I turned down an offer for $800 on my 1970 250 car today. At that price I figure I will keep it and learn to weld on it. It's been too much fun to dump for that little amount of money.
