That rack system looks similar the one I saw in Alydon's car back in October '09. It looks pretty sweet. What advantage does it provide over a single rack/head unit?
Yeah? Good deal. And who's doing the install for you?Bought the needed parts from the nearest Mercedes Benz dealer where I have been a customer since 2000.
Putting in new brakes and rotors all the way around. Have the anti squeal paste and new wear sensors too.
Flushing the brake fluid can wait a little while...
I rebuilt it myself last year when I had the motor out. You can get the rebuild kit from AHAZ. It was $20.00 I think. It was a bitch pulling it all apart. Some of the bolts were really on there. Had to use the impact driver on them.Mclare did you need a new compressor when you converted it to 134 in order to get satisfactory results?
Well they look sensational, I have them too,Finally found some suiting wheels for my car to replace the tired mesh style wheels, let me know what you think!
If you have an air compressor, Harbor Freight has a very inexpensive vacuum pump that is adequate to the task. Got one last year when I was redoing my Geo Metro's AC...did just fine.R&R'd the AC compressor on my 300SDL today with a brand new Denso unit built in Japan. Haven't pulled a vac on it yet so I can fill it. Thinking about having that professionally done or seeking more advice so I can learn. May do a write up on it but I did not get a chance to take as many pics as I would have liked for a proper DIY.
Let me know if you need some help. We're neighbors, so if you need a hand, pm me. Temps have been around 108 this week, but my car never runs over 100C, so let's see what we can do.I ordered a new radiator and oil line hoses. Temps have been running between 100C and 120C driving to work with the AC on, thermostat is good, radiator is almost 32 years old, sometimes weeps a little coolant between the tank and the core, core is probably all plugged to hell, so I figure it's probably about time for a new radiator.
Oil lines...probably original, certainly leaking some oil, hate to park in nice places because the car leaves a lot of drips...
I also ordered another gasket for the turbocharger oil line, and some o-rings, to take care of a few leaks there. Trying to civilize the ol' hooptie.
