    Re: 190sl engine for sale

    Don't try very hard to free it up. The 190SL engine only has 3 main bearings and you don't want to mess up the crankshaft. I wouldn't try to spin that engine.

    Sorry, but I have no idea what it's...

    Re: Mercedes 190SL Project wanted

    Hi Sven,

    I'm considering selling my 1956 (first registered 1957). I've had 'Baby' since 1987. She's in daily driver condition with a nice interior and very old paint job. She would be a fantastic...

    Re: Generator mounting bolt

    Small hands... boy is THAT the truth! And 9 inch fingers. LOL.

    I tried putting just a bolt in the front mount to see if grounding was the issue. It wasn't. But it took hours to get a short bolt...

    Re: Generator mounting bolt

    Thank you Andre and Frank! I should have gone to Autohaus list first! They do great diagrams.

    I'm not quite positive where everything goes though.

    Does anyone have a photo of how it is...

    Generator mounting bolt

    Happy Monday!

    My generator light came on recently and I just assumed it was brushes and this last weekend started to remove the generator. However, once I got under the car I see that the mounting...
  7. Re: Correct color turn signal lens..........

    Hi Trip,

    The answer varies by year.

    My '56 came with glass and clear.

    The timeline shows when they changed. Looks like US was always clear, and Europe was amber in the later years.

    Hope...

  9. Re: Becker Europa (Mono not Stereo) correct connection to speakers and/or amplifier?

    Update:

    The Alpine speakers sound just fine without an amp. I cancelled the Club Alternator (thank you Jim for being so understanding!) and returned the amp and cable kit.

    Here's the Becker in...

    Re: LEDs replacements

    I just found a new style of front flasher LED bulbs that I like better than the ones pictured at the top that Greg shows. I installed same ones as Greg earlier in the year. My complaint with them is...

    Hi Marc,

    I'm very curious to see what you end up doing for an emergency trunk access solution.

    Ah, this just gets more and more complicated! LOL.

    Thanks for this Dave!!!

    I would NOT have thought about it.

    Off to the club store to order the club alternator...

  14. Re: Becker Europa (Mono not Stereo) correct connection to speakers and/or amplifier?

    Hi Dave,

    No, I've not upgraded the generator to an alternator.

    BUT - I'll be running it at 100 watts 4ohms, not 200 watts 2 ohms...

    RIGHT? I hope!!!

  15. Re: Becker Europa (Mono not Stereo) correct connection to speakers and/or amplifier?

    Thanks Dave.

    I decided to go with a more expensive Kicker 100w 4ohm amp and the Alpine speakers described above. But found them cheaper, as well as a discounted amp install kit, at...

    Link to Basic Car Audio Electronics where I found the green graphic diagrams above, and the formulas above. They also have calculators. A cool resource.

  17. Re: Becker Europa (Mono not Stereo) correct connection to speakers and/or amplifier?

    That makes sense.

    But how do I put all the pieces together? How do I determine if any given set up will work? Because I'm trying to do something out of the ordinary: Connect a mono receiver to an...

  19. Re: Becker Europa (Mono not Stereo) correct connection to speakers and/or amplifier?

    Hi Dave,

    I thought Series connections for 2 speakers double the Ohms, but 2 speakers in Parallel halve the Ohms?

    That's what the green diagram I posted from http://www.bcae1.com/spkrmlti.htm...

    I'll give you a shout.

    Check the diagrams I posted in this thread and you can see how confused I am. LOL

    Thanks Dave, this helps.
