Thanks

Great thread, just swapped out my pump, I have one recommendation.
I used a 3'' flap sanding wheel to open up the harmonic balancer a smidge to make it go in with out needing a mallet.

First post after all this time. Welcome 🙂

Pics missing in these threads is such a pain. Firstly it was a hosting issue. Sometimes they were restored and disappeared again. Then it's the fault of the forum rather than the member in many cases, tech issues.

@ianrandom , I still have the pics and if they restore my editing permissions, I will again.

I still have them and can email them out also.

Zerex is formulated for the types of metals in our engine and radiator. And Green and Orange or Pink coolants are designed for other makes, NOT Mercedes. Zerex is a little harder to find. I had to go to a NON-chain auto parts store that knows me and they said they would stock it for me as well as the Chevron Delo 400LE Motor Oil which we will cover at a later date.

FYI - In Salt Lake City, the local NAPA and O'Reilly both carry the correct Zerex -- good to know that it is not common. Will carry some on my next long trip.

Well written .. thanks !

Sad for me, a newbie to this forum, I am not allowed to see the photos !

I agree that there is a need for contributions from all of us, but this policy certainly has its negatives.

I still have all of the pics for all of my threads. I had restored them back in 2017, but somehow they disappeared again??? I know my server is working... WTF???

If anyone needs them, email me at: [email protected] and put in the subject line: BENZWORLD PICTURES so I can see it from all the Spam I get.

Some stupid techno error. I could try and restore them if you email them to me Mike.

@ianrandom Ian, the pictures are all still on my server and live. Read my post in my sunroof thread. I think the sysadmin here killed hotlinking. Can you check? I outlined a few ways we can restore them.

See what the sysadmin's say and LMK.
