    I have a RHD Becker Mexico that was produced between '56 and '57.
  2. Re: Replacing timing gears without taking out the engine?

    I bought at simple puller made for spindle joints and was able to remove the tie rod. After removing the shock absorber it was very easy to remove the oil pan.

    I guess that now that the oil pan is...
  3. Re: Replacing timing gears without taking out the engine?

    Sry about the confusion, but this actually concerns a MB 180a. The threads original question was not 180a specific. Move the thread to the correct section if you wish :)
  4. Re: Replacing timing gears without taking out the engine?

    I need to remove the oil pan to inscpect the cranskshaft gear but I'm having some technical problems. Can't loosen the tie rod. Usually a hit on the side works but not on this one, it's stuck. I...
  5. Re: Replacing timing gears without taking out the engine?

    It turned out the camshaft gear for double roller chain fits even for a single roller chain! Now I need to inspect the intermediate spocket and the crankshaft gear to see if they need to be replaced.
  6. Re: Replacing timing gears without taking out the engine?

    Thanks for reply! I might have one more possibility and that is to use a camshaft gear for double roller chain if it fits even though I use a single roller chain. Will check that out tomorrow :)
  7. Replacing timing gears without taking out the engine?

    Is it possible (or advisable) to replace ALL the gears for the timing without removing the engine?

    This actually concerns my 180a but this job should not be different between the cars... I might...

    Re: Paint rear brake cable lever and yoke?

    I think both parts should be yellow (or white) cadmium plated. No problem to paint them if it's not a show car, but use something like Por15 or equivalent.

    Re: Trouble bleeding brakes... no fluid

    I would only clean the pistons and after that use a very fine sandpaper. That's what I did and it worked fine.

    Re: Trouble bleeding brakes... no fluid

    Looks to me to be in very good condition (where it matters). Hone, use new rubber and it should work fine!

    Vj4br11?

    I have this distributor that is supposed to be a VJ4BR11 but the plate is not completely readable as you can see (it's probably been glass beaded).

    It does not have any MB number stamped.

    Any...

    Re: Clutch dragging? or something else

    I heard from a friend that a shop installed the throw out bearing backwards on a MB 170. Symptoms were the clutch took at the very end and not completely (hard to gear).

    Re: Clutch dragging? or something else

    You are doing it right!

    Check if there is any room for further pushing the clutch fork when the pedal is down. If so, you should be able to adjust it, either by the normal adjusting screw, or by...
