    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...

    Re: brakes

    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...

    Re: brakes

    Walt, those big 15 inch tires probably have too much grip to lock up;)
  8. Re: Is a faulty Poppet Valve responsible for my stalling at stop lights?

    Jeff, obviously do what looks right to you, but in the past, I also had a large piston that the seal was in good condition except it lost it "outward flare" to seal against the chamber. I too tried...
  9. Re: Is a faulty Poppet Valve responsible for my stalling at stop lights?

    Jeff, trying to imagine what you are describing, I wonder if valve 79 and 84 are both open/leaking at the same time. 79 should close and seal before 84 is open. The other option I notice would be...
  10. Re: Is a faulty Poppet Valve responsible for my stalling at stop lights?

    As usual, I agree with Walt!
    In addition Jeff, I am not sure there is a "most likely" cause. You did replace and check the vacuum valve area, and apparently all looked okay, even the poppet that ...

    Jeff, at the bottom of the tech section, there are indexes for the newsletter articles. I believe this may be the one you are looking for on the smoke test:

    Ricardo listed several accessory manuals for this era. Do you have these? If not, you may want to contact him:

    People do seem to have varying opinions on this. You may find this thread will help in your decision. As you can tell from my posts in it, if you have original MB rims, I do not believe you need...

    My 1961 came with 6.40 x 13. I have standard size black walls, but I do like white walls. Why tubes?

    Re: Are these Solex PHH 44 carbs NOS?

    IMO, they look used. Too many screws look touched, slots slightly distorted. The shaft lock plates look bent, not locked. It appears to have some gasket material left from the air log. And as...

    Disassemble an axle just to powder coat it? I would not touch it. Just my opinion.

    It may not be timing, but I would not waste my time on other items until you check it first.

    Re: Best way to hand turn the engine

    Put it in fourth gear and push the car gently. Key off so it won't start. On the level so it will not get away from you. But easy.

    Re: what is the carbie setup in the 190sl ?

    Based on the 115 at the beginning of the manifold part number, I would assume that manifold was initially found on a 115 body style car, probably a 200, 220, or 230 from the late 1960's.
    As to the...

    Trashpilot, I was referring to the one on the BAT car that Bob posted above. The one you have is an SU. Sorry for the confusion.

    It is a Zenith Stromberg. It was original on the 220 and four cylinder 230 models.
  24. Re: Is MSD Multi-Spark Ignition and 123 Distributor a recommended combination?

    So Multi-Spark took the idea from Ford! The Model T Ford (and I am sure others) had an ignition system that would supply three to four sparks per combustion.

    I certainly do not proclaim to be...
