Had a bit of a nasty leak out of 2 out of 5 outputs of the injectionpump. Ordered a gasket/o-ring kit from Erik at Dieselmeken and swapped the O-rings pictured below aswell as everything in the prepump. Prepump Mercedes
Mercedes-Benz introduced the W123 four-door versions in January, 1976. While there were some technical similarities to their predecessors, the new models were larger in wheelbase and exterior dimensions. The styling was also updated, although stylistic links with the W114 / W115 were maintained.
w201 190d 2.5 turbo Fuelstrainer
Had problem with the car accelerating. Would not rev past 2500/3000rpm without jerking violently. Removed the fueltank from the car along the fuelstrainer and was completely filled up with gunk/rust and dirt. Cleaning out the tank and the fuelstrainer got rid of the jerking almost completely, every filter was swapped and we had to […]
w123 om606 HX40 8mm Mynä w220 rims 7 hole, fitment with spacers from spacer.se
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 […]
Brake upgrade w114/w115
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 […]
w115 om616 240d Fuel strainer
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 […]
w123 om606 HX40 8mm Mynä Old videos of om606 8mm w123
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. After the first video the tires […]

Tiny-projects Rustbucket w116 450SEL om617
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 […]
w123 om606 HX40 8mm Mynä flexdisc/hardydisc failure
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 […]
s123 m275 v12 biturbo 2.47LSD with 722.6 = 1600rpm @ 100km/h
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 […]

w123 om602 turbo 7.5mm dieselmeken driveshafts – loud noise
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 […]

Sway bar links
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 […]
