Been talking to the builder of the w114 om606 coupe with air-suspension (Dan) http://mbturbo.com/car/w114om606/ He feels he needs more stopping power, and got ahold of vented front discs for his w114 that i suspect are either from one r107 or perhaps a w126 gen1. Anyhow, have been thinking about the posibility to do the w126 […]
The w115 had a tank hanging below the trunk, and have the fuel strainer hanging at the bottom (the same as the 911 (930) Porsche) The look and design of the filter is quite identical, where the only noticable difference between a gasoline fuel strainer from a w115 and the Porsche fuelstrainer was that the […]
Found an old video of the time we tried the car after having fuelfilter problems, this one was in lower gears and speed, and as one can tell, there was nowhere near enough traction, it was cold tarmac, cold tires, and the air started to get a tad damp. althou after that first run we […]
bright sun, and not good whitebalance, tried on the 15″ hubcaps on 16″ steel rims, 7″ wide in the front 8″ wide in the back. Last picture of the vehicle in my possession, sold to someone living nearby so will probably spot it doing burnouts and drifting around corners.
Front end work, UpperControlarms, aswell as tierods.
Bought a w116 for parts about a year ago, mostly for the 3.07 differential, drove it the 2 hours back home, had some ingenous solutions to problems. Its a pain in the ass to always swap the fuses, why not solder for a while and remove al that unnecesary trouble? not much of a […]
The flexdisc of the w123 om606 8mm mynä wasnt to happy, swapped it out for another old used one to keep the car roling, hope that it will keep together for atleast a couple of runs, ought to get the larger flange+flexdisc in place somewhere in the near future, but feels “unnecesary” to build a […]
2.47LSD with large yoke/flange, swapped side of driveshafts, Left to right, and right to left. will probably have to rebuild the LSD-stuff, but will se how it behaves. 2.47 with the 722.6 should give me something along 1600rpm @100km/h and with the m275s insane torque, it wont be a problem with those low rpms. will […]

Huge bangs and clanks from the rear of the car, w123, w115, coming after driving for a couple of minutes, my guess is the grease gets warm, and the driveshaft kan move freely and thus creating the bangs that scared the shit out of me. Video of the loud bangs from the rear of the […]

Enginemounts that makes om606, om603, om605, om602 etc fit in the w123 chassi
w115 in steel vs w123 plastic swaybar links, the same measurments, or perhaps a mm or two in difference, seeing that the durability is the same, the boot craks, and not the plastic, there isnt realy any advantage with paying twice the price for the metal version. for me atleast. A 115 320 15 89 […]
