On the subject of the "the basket"

I dont know what all this basket business is about but you dont need one for a 606. Theres no way the timing gear and chain can go anywhere, but I cable tied it to be doubly sure.

The basket works nicely to help center the timer cog when reinstalling a pump. That zip tie rig isn't much good for that scenario. As mentioned, the baskets came factory installed on most early 60X engines...not sure when the skimped on that little detail. Those things were only a few bucks not so long ago. I wonder if they lost the stamp die, hence the platinum pricing for NOS pieces

Guys/Gals,

Just a quick follow up note. I had to go out of town for work for a couple weeks (pesky customers kept spending money and demanding things.....) but am going to tackle this IP swap this week.

I'll be replacing all the clear fuel lines as well, the OVP, and have re-sealed my new-to-me injection pump at the DV seals.

This IP swap doesn't look too difficult, and I will keep everyone posted as to results. If the new IP cures my problem, I'll try and get to a teardown of the old on with pictures to see what went wrong.

I'll caveat that by saying opening weekend of South Dakota pheasant season is only two weeks away, and things tend to fall by the wayside when it rolls around....

Thanks again for being a great forum, and I hope I can repay the favor someday.

Don't forget the big o-ring between the injection pump and mating surface on the block side.

Reusing the old one will almost guarantee a good size oil leak.

Yeah i got the MB part for that. $15 O-ring......however, I'll gladly pay it to keep it leak free. Benz one is green and black.

I've seen new bolts used on these installs - I don't have them - big deal? If it were head gaskets I'd understand, but I can't imagine them making a huge difference.

Because you need to get the torque value down perfectly, I would go with brand new bolts. Yes, not exactly peanuts but beats having to deal with a oil leak.

Reusing the old bolts and washers can give you erroneous torque readings and cause a oil leak.

When you consider you only want to do this about once every other decade, money well spent vs. redoing.

@Saber t - per usual, you make a crushingly logical case. I'll get those moving my way.

Hey guys,

yes, I've been a total slacker about this, and my poor benz has been resting in the garage while I've been hunting, and dealing with the whole fam damily for the holiday. I was debating deeply about junking this car, and then I went to the car show this weekend, and remembered that new cars suck, and I'd rather have my old benz running and another bike.....

Anyhow, tomorrow is start of tackling this project, and I wanted to share a couple things.

1) The IP timing tool, and the 32pt socket for the DV seals are now on amazon.com, and have good reviews. the prices are staggeringly lower than the dealer, and I personally prefer amazon over ebay. See below:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O1QN8AS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009XBLROU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Also, the Viton o-rings for the DV seals are on there too! Yay!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005RUQVG0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Crush washers are fortunately available at my local Ace hardware, which might be the best one in the country for odd car/mechanical related parts.

2) I am also going to take this opportunity to probably remove all the pre-chambers and clean them up well. I had my GP's replaced back in march, but I figure that slack-ass tech didn't do the job how I would.

3) I'd also like to extend a very, very large THANK YOU to everyone on this thread who helped, and shared their knowledge on this. I'm sure I will be back on here tomorrow with some other crisis, but I do really, really appreciate all the help. If anyone is in phoenix area and needs a favor repaid, by all means, just ask.

Found It!

Well....this is the back of my IP with the plate off.....1995 E300d sudden power drop/no-start-photo-dec-02-11-14-30.jpg

Glad I got the new one.

On another note, I'm looking at the PCV (crankcase vent) system. Any reason why it cannot be routed to atmosphere rather than back into my intake?

Seems like less crap going into motor would be best, yes? Anyone done this?
