    Re: generator

    Your GMC truck has a Delco generator system that is basically identical to the Bosch system in the 190sl, I believe.

    Re: generator

    I am not familiar with disconnecting a battery causing this problem. Typically I do not think it would, and unless something else occurred, I find it quite surprising. To simply say the voltage...

    Re: White wall tires and tubes

    Also, I Wil look for the photo, but I am pretty sure the MB rim does not have the rim bump and they say it is ok to use tubeless.

    Re: White wall tires and tubes

    Ejboyd5, thank you for posting. I assume that is by Michelin. Interesting, in that I see it in direct contrast to what MB and other first sources have written. So unfortunately, unlike what I...

    Re: White wall tires and tubes

    Again, it is my interpretation... MB comtinures to say tubeless tires can be uses afterwards, and does not say the rims need to be changed. They then describe the difference, and only talk about...

    Re: White wall tires and tubes

    Did you read the post I referred to in post 7 above? In my view, per the MB factory manual which I posted a copy of in that post, MB seems to be very clear that it is okay to install tubeless tires...

    Re: Transmission Fluid - is it safe to bend ?

    I am not sure age would effect oil requirements, only mileage/wear. I use what is recommended. If I had problems with ATF because my transmission was shot, sure, I might try anything to see if it...

  12. Re: Rear engine mount bolt spinning freely - nut broke loose from rubber.

    This is from the 190 service manual.

    The slots and rubber compound vary to attempt to get the most vibration free mounting. The part numbers changed over the years with various substitutions.
  13. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    John, yes, but... But typically an old engine would be worn, and in my experience, I have never felt or heard that a carb is modified for that reason. And if old means "broken" then I would spend...
  14. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Prove you wrong? I doubt it! I agree with you, and more. In my opinion, this is a very "unknown" situation, and needs to be treated as such. If I remember, Jeff had just gotten is car back from a...
  15. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Jim, I am not disputing, but I do not understand. MB sent out thousands of cars off the assembly line, all with the same jetting. I oftened wondered how oems sized carbs. How much is by charts,...

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Steve, if you actually do have 12v on one side and 0.4v on the other the bulb and you are testing under load, the bulb should light.

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Steve, I am not sure where you are with this issue, but it sounds as if it may not be resolved.
    First, as said before, with the key on, engine not running, you should have 12 v from the battery on...

    Re: Remflex - should I add a shim as well?

    Also, check that the thickness of the intake and exhaust manifolds are the same at the mounting bolts. If not, a "step" washer may need to be ground to take up the difference to apply even pressure...

    Some prices from the good old days- 300SL and a 190SL. Also, I do not know my Ferraris, but sounds like it may have been a good price.

    Re: Heater Valve

    These two theories have come up in the past. I believe in the one to allow controlled flow. I believe if that slit were open enough to allow any worthwhile amount of coolant flow, it would create...

    Re: brakes

    Walt, and I assume your gauge, as in the photo, dropped to 0 with the brake applied. So if you have atmospheric on the back, and 23 in hg on the front of the piston, it somewhat seems to me that is...

    Re: brakes

    To follow what I believe you have done- you applied 500 psi to the booster. You applied 23 in. hg/ 11.2 psi to the booster. Per the graph, 23 in. hg should increase the output pressure by about 440...

    Re: brakes

    Walt, is it reasonable to conclude at this point that you have a faulty booster? It seems to me, your output pressure is not only dependent on vacuum, but also on input pressure. You are not going...

    Re: brakes

    Walt, it appears to me to be a strange graph, but try this. The "vacuum" reading is not in Inches of Mercury, but in PSI, that is psi pressing on the large piston. Thus with no pedal pressure, one...

    Walt, I did not get too much time to look at this, but does the bottom half tell you how much vacuum you should have at a certain foot pressure. Ie, at 427 PSi control pressure by pedal, read down...
