    Re: Mercedes 190SL Project wanted

    I am thinking about selling my 1956. Fully restored. Not cheap. Let me know if you are still looking. I used to live in Stony Plain (1949).

    Re: sprocket alignment

    To sling or not to sling, that is the question. Who is Fritz and does the elimination of the slinger cause other problems? The one I am replacing was warped and had several small nicks on its...

    What is the torque value for the shoulder bolt (18mm-1.25) that fastens the pulley, counterweight and oil slinger to the crankshaft?
    Thanks.

    I am going to have to replace the front crankshaft seal. The shop manual says to use a puller (000 589 17 33) to remove the counterweight. The puller is apparently no longer available. Can someone...

    Re: Early Visor Function

    My 1956 came with both visors. The mounting hardware is not the same for both. There is left and right for each.

    Re: Hard top

    Don't even consider doing the headliner yourself. Leave that to a professional. I found that the next most difficult is installing the bottom seal or gasket.

    Re: transmission oil leak

    What kind of fluid do you have in the transmission? Synthetics should not be used as they are prone to leaking.
