Enjoying your thread here (and some of your previous adventures with your 240D!)... Whatever happened to that car anyway?
I'm looking at a 86 300E and it needs both. After reading some posts from people who've done the valve seals, it sounds a bit tricky and dangerous if you drop parts into the engine. Would it be easier to change the valve seals with the head off?
How much further is it to go to change the pistions? Just thought while I'd be in there.... Maybe that's too big a job, though.
Anyway, any more pics or details of getting the head off would be appreciated!
Thanks... Good luck!
