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:
Also, the Viton o-rings for the DV seals are on there too! Yay!
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.
