I tried on my engine while taking it apart for a rebuild with no luck. I heard from others that it's almost impossible to do without bending/breaking it. The advice in the manual is worthless because it assumes the oil pan is two-piece like on a W126.
Getting it IN must be bad because there is a special tool to do it with.
I did this today. It took about 30 seconds of heat with and ox-acetylene torch. A propane torch would have been just fine but I didn't have any gas left. Also I found you can pry the bottom of the tube with a screw driver but I didn't need to, It cane right out. Just a little heat does it. This can be done in the car.
Thought it might be an idea to have one place with a searchable subject where all types of EPC and part numbers accesses are grouped.
-EPC access used to available free for those in USA from MBUSA. But now you have to pay :( https://epc.startekinfo.com/epc/
-EPC can be accessed by buying a CD...
Finally. After 14 years and 85,000 miles....I have a cracked windshield.
Normally I could live with it, however,I will be moving provinces which will require a safety inspection.
So....what is the part number and has anyone had to buy one lately?
Well, the last few days have been quite interesting with what I have learned/discovered about K-Jetronic with Lambda systems. I set out with the goal of getting the mixture right on my 1980 450SLand did so by attempting to use a duty cycle meter… only to discover that it is NOT possible! A lot...
74 450SL in West Texas: There is a hose that comes out of the MAP sensor and goes down between the engine and the firewall. I’m assuming it is vacuum. In that line there is a tee that has been plugged off with a screw. Where should that line off of that tee hook up?
So....I finally sealed the deal.
Nobette and I bought some lakefront property in Wentworth-Nord, Quebec on Lac Notre-Dame.
I retire January 2020 and hopefully the first dynamite blast will take place early May.
Hoping to be in it by late September, albeit, with some work to do.
