  1. R129 Expansion Tank/Coolant Reservoir tank update?

    R129 SL-Class
    As mentioned in the thread it needs to be capped off. Heres a youtube video guide.
  2. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    Thank you Bill! Appreciate that! I might have driven a bad example I'm probably wrong about my experience and need to give it another try. I will, however, say that I enjoy the sound that the I6 gives especially with an Eisenmann Race exhaust which is what I have. I bet that an Eisenmann m119...
  3. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    I get a lot of people who talk about that. I drove a 500sl I didn't like it it wasn't a fun drive rather it was a smooth cruise nor was it that much faster than what I have. Finally to be more exact it piggybacks the EHA and allows more fuel for the more air. Now I will say that doing a custom...
  4. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    Yeah, that's a good idea. I'll start looking for something like that. I'll also shoot an email to Mosselman on if they happen to know what supplier they had for that box or was it made in-house. If it was a parts bin item from a diesel truck or something that would be great to grab. I was...
  5. VSS Speed Sensor Cable location

    R129 SL-Class
    You can fit it on the stock spot but I wanted it to be at the climate control spot but sadly it cannot be done. I would rather do a flip out at the stock spot so I can close it rather easily for access to the climate controls
  6. VSS Speed Sensor Cable location

    R129 SL-Class
    So sadly you can't swap the climate control with the radio because of lack of space in the climate control part. There's a metal bar and a vent vacuum module blocking enough space for a radio to fit. So I'm going to have to go with the single din flip out pioneer unit. I did find the cable it is...
  7. VSS Speed Sensor Cable location

    R129 SL-Class
    Doesn't hurt to try! Thanks for replying
  8. VSS Speed Sensor Cable location

    R129 SL-Class
    I found an operations manual for the becker 1480 and it says it has the speed dependent volume adjustment and I can't seem to find a wiring diagram that says which wire is the speed pulse wire. This model doesn't have a port for the speed pulse wire and according to the diagrams of the back of...
  9. VSS Speed Sensor Cable location

    R129 SL-Class
    I'm installing an iLX-F309 Alpine sat radio and swapping the radio with the climate control. I'm not sure if my car has the cable at the radio because it's the becker 1480 and not the becker that came in 1991-1993 models. I'm learning that it doesn't unless someone tells me otherwise but where...
  10. No AC at center vents

    R129 SL-Class
    There's a plastic vacuum distribution part in the computer area of the engine bay. I had a similar problem. Check for leaks there. I had one and I replaced the unit which had a crack on it and it solved my problem. I listened for a vacuum leak on the unit with the car on ignition 2 and not started.
  11. Can't find a M104 Idle Control Valve Hose

    R129 SL-Class
    It is connected to 38 in this photo then connects to what was pointed at in the previous post's photo
  12. Can't find a M104 Idle Control Valve Hose

    R129 SL-Class
    it's a hose that attaches to 1040941082 with a pipe connector and goes into the intake manifold. It attaches to the nipple on the left finger. I called the dealer, looked at EPC and I can't find it. I looked at the ICV and the intake manifold and have come with no results. I just need the part...
  13. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    Yeah I looked at the German eBay haven't seen anything yet.. I had explained in a previous post here why I wouldn't like to go turbo bandit.
  14. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    I'm not worried about my engine blowing up as I had just had it and the tranny completely rebuilt. I get what your saying! I have always wanted this kit so hopefully someone posts who is willing to sell.
  15. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    Rorypff, that would be good but I want to keep my car somewhat original.
  16. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    I know I'm going to get alot of crap for this but I was thinking that but then i drove a 500SL. The car drove like any other v8, it was uninspired and just not as fun to drive. It was comfortable, smoother and felt like it had somewhat more power but the second I got back into my SL I...
  17. R129 Expansion Tank/Coolant Reservoir tank update?

    R129 SL-Class
    Yes I had dealt with this issue you mentioned. It leaked out and I had to fit another pipe that can handle it. It was a custom made pipe. Solved the problem so far. I wouldn't recommend the AutoZone vacutite solution.
  18. Mosselman Turbo M104

    R129 SL-Class
    Hey guys! It's been a while! I still have the good ole benz and i was curious about improving the power output. I know that mosselman had a twin turbo kit and I was wondering if it is even possible to find myself a kit, new or used doesn't matter to me as long as it isn't inoperable. I'm about...
  19. 722.5 300SL No fifth gear

    R129 SL-Class
    I reset the code several times. The switch in the center has been tested in the past and it worked fine. I did the trick that was listed here on another thread. I will try buying another one and installing cause they're so cheap. Thanks for the input!
  20. 722.5 300SL No fifth gear

    R129 SL-Class
    Hey guys its been a while! I have had this problem for years. I have been working with an indy for a while on this and now we're stumped. We rebuilt the transmission, changed the ezl and so much more. I also followed all the forum posts regarding it here on benzworld and on MBworld and other...
