    Re: brakes

    Walt ... Do you have Porterfield brake linings? If not, do it, you will be amazed (COF goes from 0.35 to 0.45).

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Andre .... The regulator part number is IN254. It is available from Amazon for under $10.
  4. Re: How firmly should Weber Idle jets be seated?

    Jeff ... The best description for the jets is "firm". Not "tight" and not "loose". They just need to seal but if they leak it is not a big deal. Just do not screw up the threads.

    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jack .... I just buy 1/8 rod from Lowes and then I cut and thread the rod. I use two right handed threaded ends as I don't have a left handed die.

    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jeff ... My link goes in front of the water pipe, much like Leif's setup. The important item is to insure that you can get full throttle by pressing the accelerator pedal.

    Re: Differing advice on Weber settings

    Jeff .... I think that what Francisco is saying that the control rods are removed from the carbs so that the throttle sits on the adjustment screws. The throttle adjustment screws are adjusted for...

    Re: Differing advice on Weber settings

    The idle mixture screws are adjusted to the "correct air-fuel" mixture. Start with all idle mixture screws at the same opening (1`/2 turn or so). With the engine idling, open each screw 1/4 turn. ...

  11. Re: Sync Webers by passage of butterflies over progressive holes

    Jeff .... The idle jet feeds fuel to the progression holes. With the linkage attached, the butterflys should cross a progression hole together. The first hole will always be exposed at idle to...

    Francisco ..... I swapped off my 28mm choke carbs and I am currently running 30mm chokes. I liked the 28mm chokes and will return to them "sometime".

    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jeff .... Your vertical rod from the idler crank on the engine is probably hitting the coolant hose to the manifold. If you shorten the vertical rod a little to bring the angle of the upper arms off...
  15. Re: Connecting front U.V .joint to Transmission

    Greg .... A good discussion. Did you reinstall your original flex disk? My experience a few years ago with a replacement disk is that they are a different thickness and use different bolts. I also...

    Re: Source for Oil filter for 1956 190sl

    Just a note, you can replace the old filter with a spin-on filter that is easy to change, see the club store (complete with all of the seals that you need).
  17. Re: looking for help on block & head numbers

    The engine is a "920" engine (4-6 numbers in the block engine number) and it is from a sedan. It is a bolt-on substitute. The head is also a bolt on subtitude but probably has a lower compression...
  18. Re: Clutch shaft Pivoting Support Assembly Confusion

    Jeff .... That little spring slides in the slot and holds the round bearing.
  19. Re: Clutch shaft Pivoting Support Assembly Confusion

    Jeff .... You understand the pivot. Just replace the 10mm circlip and you should be fine. I would also put a little grease on the ball and shaft. I believe that the other parts are for a right had...

    My 45DCOE carbs have a set screw that holds the auxiliary venturi in place. I am currently using the shorter auxiliary venturi but I have a set of the longer ones that I might install the next time...

    Re: Liar Tachometer

    Francisco .... I still would check the tach with a electronic gauge; it is an option on my electric volt/ohm meter. If it is reading off, I would guess that it is a gauge problem that would require...
  22. Re: Drawn to the Dark Side - 40 or 45 DCOE Webers?

    Jeff .... I believe that you can use 40 or 45 DCOE carburetors. I have used 45's for years and am not really familiar to the differences other than the diameter of the butterfly. I use the air log...

    Re: Liar Tachometer

    Francisco .... If you are just looking at the speedometer and the tach; you may need more information. I would verify the engine RPM with a meter that has a RPM scale.

    Re: Rear axles are out...

    Isabelo .... Nix the idea. If you unbolt the left axle tube, you will be removing the left cage bearing and the ring gear will be loose. This is part of setting up the lash of the rear end and best...
