    Re: Power steering

    I made my own for my 1978 Land Cruiser FJ40. It works really really well and I'm using only 20% of full boost. I bought a controller on ebay, used EPS unit from a Saturn Vue, a bunch of fittings...

    Re: Cold call from new member

    I decided to answer the phone to tell him to stop calling me. Larry claims he has not been constantly calling my number and I explained my call log indicates otherwise. He then got pissed and asked...
  3. 921 camshaft, valves, rockers, towers, etc.

    I have everything but the aluminum head itself from a running/driving 921 engine. Sold the head itself years ago to someone in a jam. The head was full thickness - never cut/shaved - so I would...

    Re: one rear brake dragging

    I just started troubleshooting the exact same issue! In my case the soft lines and fluid are all recently replaced. Was going to check if the friction washers were too tight as well as the pivot...

    Re: Introduction.. new 190 owner with pics!

    I could dead lift the engine - no trans or accessories attached - and it wasn't too bad. But...this was a number of years ago...I'd ask friend to help! Point being - they aren't too heavy once the...

    Re: cylinder head

    If you are in a jam I have a couple 940 heads I think would work on a 61 (940 swap I'll likely never get around to). Somebody here would know better or do a search. It would be a couple weeks...

    Re: Old Tires

    185/80/13s are marginal at best. I would not go any smaller. It will look really bad w/ that much open space in the wheel well and your RPMs will be screaming. Upgrading to 14" rims - which means...
  15. Re: Loaner front hub for Disc Brake Fabrication? Anyone?

    I have a set of DISK brake spindles off a 110/111 Heckflosse which will bolt right into a 190SL. You can borrow one of those if it would help. I have a complete 190SL front subframe w/ suspension...

    Re: New Store Item - Weber Adapter Plate

    I installed these over the weekend - replacing the adapters available from other sources. The fit and install is much easier b/c of the studs for the airlog mounting. The allen head bolts to mount...

    Re: 3 Point Seat Belts using B Pillar?

    You might want to do some research on 4 point seat belts - most are more prone to submarining and cause abdominal damage.

    I suspect that is the 110/111 fintail setup.
  19. Re: Anyone have a spare front hub to lend? Front Disc Brakes? Any folks interested?

    You can use the front spindle off a 110/111 chassis sedan instead - complete w/ the ATE caliper, rotor, dust shield etc. The kingpin between the two cars is identical except for the location of the...

    I have the SS exhaust system - I wouldn't get it again. The sound is completely wrong. Otherwise - the fit and install was simple enough.

    Re: Valve Lash

    Procedure is different if you have a .921 vs. .928 engine. Both have been documented in numerous posts - try searching. The tech section of the website may have the official procedure also.
