EDIT: Have not been able to try this one out yet. —- Just got a package today from DPUK or dieselpumpuk.com and Luke Dale The 8mm Mynä pump has some problems with jerking, its not undriveable, but if inexperienced or if it has been a while since driving, the car will “jerk”, especially in […]
Hello Got a hold of a set of A2204010002 rims from a w220 S-class, 16″ 7.5 inch wide and ET46. This is to high ET to even fit in the rear and it barely fits in the rear with a 5mm adapter, but the front is a no go, definetly. Solved that with a 30mm […]
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 717.430 broke down, swapped from singlemass setup 717.430 fivespeed to dualmass setup with a 717.412 gearbox from a om605NA w124, ride quality greatly improved, no vibrations, and driveline shake
building intake manifold
Removed the old differential, started with the four bolts on top, a w114 coupe has a lot better room than a regular w114 or w115, the tad longer trunk makes a huge difference in that way you dont have to fight against the back of the rear-seats with the two inner nuts/bolts. http://mbturbo.com/how-to-change-final-drive-w115/ the pictures […]
Bought a 3.07 to put in a friends car, with what i was told a low mileage, about 250000km (low mileage to be a 300tdt w123) dont know if the oil has been neglected, started the regular cleanup, and was about to swap the sealrings/dichtrings: A0039978347 but i left it be, it will probably run […]
Got some pictures from Brad over at Benzworld.org (1884benz) from when he installed a rack and pinion from a w210 in the same w123 he puts a LS1 engine in build thread here: http://ls1tech.com/forums/conversions-hybrids/1774303-1982-300td-benz-lm7-4l60e-swap.html I am looking to go down the same route regarding stearing on both the s123 280TE with om605 aswell as the s123 200t […]

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 […]
