    Hello all. I’m sure you’ve experienced the hell it is bleeding a w123 clutch. Not sure why it’s just us that deserve this hell, maybe cuz we’re so cool with our manuals we have to get it somewhere haha. So, I’ve replaced both master and slave. I’ve tried gravity, mightyvac, oil can, 2 man...
  2. W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Yes, I finally got to it. Decided to film the process of figuring out how I wanted to do it and to what extent explaining the whys and hows. Having been doing this turbo charging kind of thing for over 15 years, I thought Id go through the pretty boring phase of thinking it through and changing...

    Hi all, I'm in Canada and have a grey market 200t wagon, Im wondering about the manual shift bushing compatibility between m102 and 240d 4 speeds. I cant easily get m102 parts here (autodoc wont ship here and rock auto etc only carries diesel or auto gasser stuff) so I was just curious if the...

    Hello all, I am selling this car for 2k or best offer, I know it's not in the best of shape. I am selling because I no longer drive it anymore, I had the tires changed about 400 miles ago, along with an oil change and valve adjustment, the car runs and drives, the paint is a little worn as...

  5. For Sale/Wanted/Trade/Giveaway
    I have documented my project here on this forum. My family is moving to the US and I'm having second thoughts about shipping everything. If I can get enough for the car, engine and huge mass of parts, I will sell it all and start over (again!) in the US. I'd prefer for it all to go together...

    Hello all, so I started experiencing no vacuum actuation yesterday morning, I wanna say after my drive to work. So I wanna say they worked yesterday morning because I 9/10 lock my car. I went to lock it at work and just my lock went down. I was like well poop. That sucks. Kept locking and...

    Here's what I've done so far. *New OEM glow plug relay *New Bremi pencil plugs *New battery I've tested the new plugs and their connections and they test fine (Ohms test) I've checked the strip fuse and physically removed/inspected it and it's fine. Also tested across to the fuse from the plug...

    I don't have this spring in the image below on my engine. Does anyone know what it is for? Most importantly is it supposed to be there from factory?
  9. W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Hello! I just purchased my 79 240d last night and I just have some questions. As the title says, when it’s not driving, you hear this loud clanking almost like a bag of bolts noise at idle. While you’re driving it’s gone but then when you’re in 4th and going a little slow you hear something...

    Hi, I have put Liquimoly 10W-40 with MoS2 into my OM616 after listening to Kent Bergsma on YouTube who said he had the best experience with this oil. But after approximately 2 months the amount of oil in the engine decreased 1 liter. My mechanic couldn't identify any leakage. So is this normal...

    Hey all, been browsing through your sweet forum for a few years now and this is the first time I've had a question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere. I've been daily driving a 1979 240D for the past year and working diligently on simplifying the electrical system. Glow plugs are...
  12. W123 Items For Sale, Wanted & Trade
    It hurts me too, but the engine blew last year, garage parked ever since. Of course, no time or intention to replace the engine, I just want to get rid of it, maybe somebody can use it for parts, everything worked fine until that cylinder found a new way out of the block. I take terrible...

    This is an interest/reality check. My senior citizen mechanic in the San Francisco Bay Area, California has at least a dozen M-B sedans languishing. I suspect that there is another batch parked behind a fence near his shop. Fintails seem to be the earliest, up to early 70s models, most seem to...

    Hi, I have an old clutch on my 1983 240D that has serious effects to driving now. I am going to replace it with a SAHS clutch soon. But apparently there are different types. For example some has a bearing with 10 teeth and some 26. Is it possible to be exactly sure as to which one is on my car...
  15. Vintage Mercedes-Benz to end of 1976
    First of all hello, first post. So I bought 1976 240D 3 liter automatic and it has a missing emblem on the right corner. And I don't really know if "DIESEL", "AUTOMATIC" if its even an option or "3.0" should be there as an emblem. There was a twin but badly damaged and it has a 3.0 emblem in...

    Hello, I have a small gap on my steering wheel. It seems the reason is the steering box and a mechanic told me that it has no more space for adjustment. So, I'll either replace or repair it. Replacement might be tricky, I believe, since the one to be put into the car might not be good either...

    Hello, My car is 1983 W123 240D with 4 speed manual transmission. It starts up just fine. The engine seems to work at idle very well, without any shake and without any strange noise. When I shift to the 1st gear and lift, again no problem. But when I shift to 2nd, 3rd or 4th gears while lifting...
  19. Vintage Mercedes-Benz to end of 1976
    Hello all, there has been a lot posted about the infamous 2-blower climate control and change-over switch system on the W114/W115, in my case a 1976 240D. My cooling blower has worked all summer, but the heater blower does not come on as it should. Today I manually flipped the lever on the...
