The reason for the bent wrenches, is to work around the hard lines. having adjusted the valves a number of times, I really can`t see how to get straight wrenches in to turn the nuts.

I have a set of the hazet wrenches I bought off e-bay a few yrs ago for $58. there were a total of 5 MB tools for the price.

If you make a set, you might have to grind the head down to make it thin enough to fit.

If you remove the hard lines, they are 17mm nuts on each end. but you will have to bleed these lines. tighten them on the IP, leave them a little loose on the injector end. have someone turn the engine over, and as you see fuel leaking at the nut, tighten it. by the time you have 3 tightened it will try to start,then tighten the last 2.

X2 on taking pictures before removing anything.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
