  1. Re: Hoping someone can help me locate two articles

    Jeff,

    I've looked, and I can't find the old document. And I can't remember which issue it was in.

    The holes are really very simple. Just adjust one carb linkage until it lines up with the...

    Re: storm damage body repair question

    This could be a case where the cure could be worse than the disease. Replacing sheet metal may end up giving you a poorer result than the fix proposed. Today's fillers are outstanding, and as you...

    Re: Best place to sell a 190SL

    If you list on BAT, as others have said, you need to have it well documented via pictures. Be ready for some nit picking and have a thick skin. It might be a good avenue for you - a friend just...
  4. Re: Sync Webers by passage of butterflies over progressive holes

    Jack, I was being facetious. :cool:
  5. Just picked up our latest toy... It's a handful!

    Completely de-badged except the tiny "AMG" on the grill. It has just about every option - heck it even drives itself.
  6. Re: 190SL Early Engine Complete with Transmission

    Is there a serial number on it? My '57 has a replacement engine.
  7. Re: Sync Webers by passage of butterflies over progressive holes

    I try and keep torches away from my fuel lines and carbs...

    Try a "flashlight" with an old-fashioned incandescent bulb in it. I found that LED lights don't illuminate the butterfly well at all. ...

    Re: Best way to hand turn the engine

    What Tom said. I jack up the left rear, and spin the tire while in 4th.

    Re: BAT : High Interest in unrestored 190 SL

    I was watching that one from when it was listed. I can't believe it sold at that price. Holy carp.

    Re: Any Interest in a European 190SL Event

    We would love to do this. Please add us to your "interest" list. We would combine it with a visit with friends in Germany and possibly The Netherlands.

    Just curious: How expensive is it to...

    Re: Back Firing

    The distributor has a centrifugal advance. You should be able to check it with a timing light. It's not unusual for the springs to go, or for the advance to get stuck. As I recall, there's a...

    Re: Carburator bolts and gasket

    Walt, Walt, Walt. What a freakin' genius idea. Why have you been hiding this? I also like the idea of using an allen head bolt. The combination of the 2 is just genius.

    On another note, I've...

    Re: Santa Fe Convention Registration Open

    That's unfortunate. We were leaning toward attending, even without my car (it probably won't be ready by then). This puts us more solidly towards "no". That price is double.
  16. Re: How to get started on a restoration, getting the long dead engine started.

    What's REALLY funny is that a few weeks ago I found an old issue I'd not read yet, for whatever reason. And there was that article!

    Re: Start Up

    Somewhere we have an article that a group of us wrote 10-15 years ago called "taking a car out of storage". Not sure where it is now? Jim might be able to get his hands on it.

    Just when you thought you'd seen it all!

    I was over at the shop where we have our cars worked on. Randy, the shop owner, owns 2 190SLs, one of which he just bought from a customer. We knew it was rough, as we'd gone over it. He just...

    Re: Weber Idle Screws

    I'm going to jump in here. My car has been running like carp for a couple of years. I mean, recently, I couldn't even drive it. And I've owned the car over 20 years (holy cow, that's how long...

    Re: OMG, what is this?

    I've actually thought of doing this, except that it would ruin a car. The SLK has a virtually identical wheelbase. The other problem is that you will put way more money into it than it will ever be...

    Re: Who makes the best body and chassis panels?

    My understanding is that K & K makes the body panels for MB, and has for years. About 2/3 of what they sell goes in containers for MB. So, with that said, I'd say K & K. It IS possible that you...

    I'd probably skip the sealant. Mine has very minor leaks, but this is a tough enough job that I wouldn't complicate it with sealant.
