  1. Re: Master brake cylinder/ replace or rebuild?

    I had a hard time to open my master brake cylinder in order to rebuilt it. This is stuck and I use to push grease thru an opening to free it. Air is not sufficient. On my last one, I did not find on...
  2. Re: Disc brakes has anyone converted to these?

    I have disc brakes on my Fintail 230, 1967, but I know they had them on 1963. Conversion on 190sl is problematic, you have to go to 14” wheels to clear the calipers but the worse is because our...

    What is your idle RPM?
  5. Re: what is the carbie setup in the 190sl ?

    And you are lucky the 2 numbers are so close!
  6. Re: what is the carbie setup in the 190sl ?

    No, the engine number and the VIN is not the same for the last digits, but relatively close. A previous owner was probably tired of the Solexes and found a cheap way to keep his engine running.

    Similar design

    This Renault Fregate was created in 1953, 2 years prior to the 190 sl. Very similar to the first 1955 except for the eyebrows.

  12. Re: Artist Perrigren Heathcote Portrays 190 SL

    She is a 190sl. The booth cover on the 300sl is a rigid panel and the mirror clipped in the door separation was never on a 300sl.

    Re: Rare vintage 190sl tools

    Needing one few years ago, I cut one from an impact socket. I had to use a 4 foot bar to be able to unscrew the nut, but no teeth broke.

    I am presently there. I saw a lot of Mercedes, but not a 190sl yet! Probably better chances to see one in Singapore in 2 weeks!
    Will try to visit PTT's bumpers factory in Vietnam next week.

    I use Rotella for Diesel engine. I prefer a heavier viscosity, driving the car summer time only. A 0W viscosity is to use during cold weather.

    Re: Engine Help!

    You are unable to install the head gasket a mm off, because it fits thru pins without any play. I think the early heads were a bit smaller and nobody makes an early gasket.

    Re: Engine Help!

    I installed 2 times a head gasket on my 1956 and I had to put a sealant on one side of the gasket because it was exceeding the head. I remember reporting that on this forum.
