    Re: Radiator disaster

    Ugh- I paid a LOT more for my recore. I thought I was getting reamed and I guess it's now confirmed.

    Re: Special Tool

    I have been happy with the modified staple remover discussed in the "Bezel Removal Tool" thread. Kudos to Jim for that one.

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Hi all,

    Just to close out this question, a faulty voltage regulator was causing my problem. Everything is working as it should now.

    Thanks for all of the help.

    Re: Rear brake picture

    Hi Rex,

    The online catalog on K&K Manufacturing's website has a clear schematic of the brake system that might help you figure out exactly what you need and how it all goes together.

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Hi Tom,

    You're correct- I haven't yet resolved this. It seems that the alternator is not providing ground to that blue terminal with the key on and engine not running.

    In my post 21, i was...

    Re: WTB Rear brake pads and hardware

    Rex,

    It appears there are several different part numbers for the rear shoes so I'd imagine you'd want to match what you're receiving from Coy for the other side. If you can let me know what part...

    Re: WTB Rear brake pads and hardware

    Hi Rex,
    I may be able to help. Can you be more specific on which parts you need? For example, each rear wheel has a fore and aft shoe and I believe they are different part numbers. Other than that...

    Re: Source for Oil filter for 1956 190sl

    I would suggest checking with our sponsors from the "Sponsors" page- a few of them carry what you need. I recommend that you purchase the filter with the seals instead of just the bare filter.
