  1. WTF with this brake pedal

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    yes thx I now strongly suspect the 240D pedals b boost clevis must have a different distance than the original auto tranny pedals this car had from the factory. The B booster clevis that is on the car is the one it used with automatic trans installed
  2. WTF with this brake pedal

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    firm steady, new master (X3 in fact!) brake hoses new I'd guess the squence of 2 shafts between pedal lever and 2nd one passes brake booster and bears on master, though 2 in. of "dead" pedal is a lot
  3. WTF with this brake pedal

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    thx for the suggestion will check did install new hose feeding vacuum to the booster no oil in booster at that point Did look at it the rod contacting master piston, recall that shaft does not appear to be variable ie adjustable, should be standardized length also looked at the shaft driven...

    W123 with 2 solid inches of mush at the top of the brake pedal travel before any pads hit the rotors solid I've pre bled and reprebled ad nauseum, used the reverse prebleed (inject B fluid into master with a large syringe) at output port, no way jose I've got 3 spare new or rebuilt master...

    Be a man. Split them. Life is so much better if you split them.
  6. Air in fuel system in 240D-causes?

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Check the fuel supply hose clamps. Those fuel pumps can suck like crazy. I saw a photo once of a W123 fuel tank that was crushed like an aluminum beer can because the vent system did not permit air into the tank, but the lift pump pulled the fuel out of it anyway. So, make sure the fuel...
  7. W123: EGR troubleshoot and exhaust smoke possible reasons

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    can I ask what are STTP and STPT? HP and torque? thx that blue green line describes the boost I seem to be getting very well Throttle linkage: I assume its possible some of the fuel may not reach the injectors if the linkage travel isn't normal. Thinking about it: in the "pedal to the...

    Thank you for the comments. I'm workin' on those things In the meantime "pulling the plug" of vacuum feed to EGR and air diverter and capping those vacuum lines off, new monarch nozzles with pop pressure balence a new K&N air filter has made very good progress. Adding boost controller...

    Can anyone explain why the OM617 FSM shows boost ramping up starting 1000 rpm then hitting the max .7 to .8 bar at 2000 rpm, in my case its flat zero at 1000, starts ramp up just under 2000 and hits max closer to 3500 rpm

    It shot up at moments my foot is all the way in it. All the way. During normal driving that never happens. The only time I have ever put my foot all the way in it has been to test the result of adding the boost controller. I'm interested in boost that makes normal daily driving more...

    Now that a boost controller is installed evidence suggests waste gate was "over wasting". Boost shot up much higher, with good power increase from that alone. I will need to be careful it was such a sudden increase.

    Thanks for your comments. This is Garrett so not so easy to get adjust the stock waste gate. By end of day today I should have this setup installed. http://www.geocities.ws/chmwatson/FAQs/mbc.html. The FSM file page does show a plot of boost ramping up at lower RPMs and it maxes out at...

    Diesel Discussion
    Thank you sir. This engine is less than 100K miles post rebuild, has good compression so should be fun to up the boost. However the peripherals are or could be old and I must finish verifying they are operating correctly. I gather since its Garrett then the simplest boost increase will be...

    Hello turbo boost sharp shooters I'm trying to get my 1984 300TD 617.952 with 4 spd manual trans swapped into it first to operate normally then to crank the boost up Its a complex system so I'm still figuring out "normal function", making sure temp sensors, EGR, injection nozzzles and pop...
