    Congratulations Johnny. When is the drinking week scheduled??
  3. OT: Has Electric Vehicles made you rethink about purchasing a ICE vehicle?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I owned my Tesla Model S performance P85D now for nearly 5 years. Like Nobby said earlier, I like the car for the technology. I have now clocked over 255,000 km ( ~ 160,000 miles ) and lost 7.5% of battery capacity. Drove all over Canada and USA and never ran out of charge. Where there is...

    John, in a week moment I bought the SLK of a departed friend. I knew the vehicle since new in 2005. I still have the 1991 300SL which I have to get off my a** and sell.

    I'm in.
  9. 1983 280sl fuel pump relay HELP!!!

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    If it didn't even twitch with starting fluid, then that points to no spark.
  10. Ganular sludge

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    That stuff was called Molyslip. It was all the rage in the 70's. Haven't seen any of it lately.
  11. new soft top don't lock

    R129 SL-Class
    Normal operation. Even the manual suggests pulling front part down to latch.
  12. Parking brake pedal fall back a little, light on

    R129 SL-Class
    Most likely broken small spring at the brake pedal. i had this on my S500 and used to push pedal up with my toe and most of the time dash light went out.
  13. 1990 300 SL serpentine belt loose, cracked and squeeling

    R129 SL-Class
    To replace the belt, radiator removal is not required, just the shroud. To be on the safe side I would also replace the tensioner and the tensioner adjuster. Look at this YouTube video for great instructions:
  14. OT: Raining for days ... so I joined the "cable cutter" ranks ...

    There is no such thing as a "Digital Antenna". Pure marketing hype for a plain UHF TV Antenna. here is my set up: $ 0.00 - 22 Toronto, Buffalo, Rochester channels over the air on my old UHF antenna on tower with rotator $ 90.34 - 60 Mbs unlimited data internet + unlimited North America calling...
  15. It's THAT Cold

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Yes, -27 here ( 70km south of Nobby ) too this morning. Jumped into my Tesla, instant interior heat, instant driving away. BUT it took a hell of battery capacity in the first 50km.
  16. GTG at the Man Cave Oct 26-28, 2018

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Nobby and MrElbe made it home around 23:40 last night. We had some top down time but most of afternoon and evening rain. Driving at night in rain following spray from cars and trucks is not a trivial exercise.
  17. GTG at the Man Cave Oct 26-28, 2018

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    That's why it's called the Man Cave.
  18. Caravan to the Man Cave

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Nobby and MrElbe will be driving on Thursday the 25th from Toronto to Front Royal VA. Then Friday on to the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway to Roanoke and then to the Man Cave. Join us for the ride or even a partial ride.

    Passed emissions test with flying colors and got validation sticker. Now just have to remove Pano top and then all system go for the trek to GB. We should plan to meet up at the Four Brothers shortly after 2pm.

    Miracles do happen. Had an appointment to replace leaky high pressure fuel line in 300SL. Tried to start the car yesterday and no go. No fuel at injectors. After checking everything including CIS plunger, consulted the elves of YouTube and read up on CIS Bosch injection and found out that that...
