'87--190E 2.3-16v(being rebuilt), '99--C230 Kompressor
so after a long life of 203k miles the headgasket finally went, it's not "bad" at the moment, i have to fill about 1/2 a gallon of antifreeze every 3 weeks or so. just a slight smell of antifreeze in the exhaust, it hasn't mixed with the oil either. this car has been a life saver quite literally, my mechanic said that the he honestly wouldn't touch it because of the frail wiring harness, and for him it would cost upwards of 3k in parts and labor. online has a new harness priced at $350, which IMO is overpriced. i'm looking into making my own harness, i've been doing wiring for cars, jets, helicopters for 20+ years so i have all the tools, and i can get quality insulated wire, it's just trying to compile a complete list of all the connectors that i'd need. does anyone have a list like this?
