I'd just get a brand new hose off fast lane, they're only $16.99, plus they are spring wrapped, which makes them belt-cutting proof....it'd be nice if the oil cooler ones were spring wrapped too....

I think I paid $160-$180 but I don't remeber for sure.

I did trans lines on my car as well, they are cheap like $12 each. It isn't a bad idea to change them as preventive maintaince. I got them from Fastlane.

Wow, cool congrats

Now that you have these additional duties, you really should consider selling me that 1987 300SDL with the black velour interior.... aka "Money Pit"

Sady, I have been out of town a bunch lately so I did not get back to you about the starter. Can you run over and pick it up sometime? I guess I missed the part about the bad condenser. Don't feel too bad, I think I may have a bad evaporator in my SDL! I was going to say the car was going to gain NO miles this week with the heat, but since daughter just broke her car...

I am just waiting for the right offer!


$40k firm or a straight up trade for a very close to new E320CDI in black.

Whoa, its been a while!

Its been quite some time since I have updated.

Since my last update the car has been serving me well everyday. I went through all the brakes, (front rotors, rear rotors and pads, as well as a replacement flex hose) And today I installed my new condenser! After new o-rings and some oil and freon the A/C is ice cold! Also, I have been buying up parts for my vegetable oil conversion. So far I have the 6port vavle, the pump, the tank, the lines (steel), and most of the fittings hoses and clamps. The only things i still need is a filter and insulation to hold the heat in the lines. Today I started the conversion buy plumbing in the 6-port valve (pollak) and starting to run the lines for the coolant. The tank also arrived today and it fits wonderfully, like it was supposed to go there!

Tomorrow and SUnday I have to work all day, then Monday my sisters and I are going to Cedar Point up in Sandusky. By tuesday I should be back to working on the car again, most probably wiring the valve, and buying fittings for the tank and possibly running the lines. But I still need to order the filter...

Everything is going great, and I will post pictures of my conversion!

Ah, that is something I forgot to mention. Thanks for bringing it up,

He gave me a couple of 1 micron bag filters... I had about 22 gallons of WVO in my garage that a friend who frys his turkeys gave me... I filtered some of it, and after warming my engine up, put some in a small container and ran on WVO for about 2 hours!! It was so awesome! No loss of power, no smoke, and a very noticably quieter idle. It was wonderful! I cant wait to finish the conversion!

Thanks for the filters...

I need to look for some potential sources for this stuff.... I'd like to be able to run on it, even if it was just a small tank under the hood for local driving, I could still save $$ I bet a 3-5 gallon tank could easily sit in there in that space on the drivers side.......

We'll have to get together soon and get it out of my trunk!
Can't wait to see the car in person all cleaned up.

During the last week, my starter began to die slowly, I think it developed a bad spot. (I would have to whack it with a hammer and steel rod to get it to crank. And it cranks very, very, very slowly. So I called Bob this morning, and my Dad drove me over (He did not want to take my car due to the starter) to Bobs this afternoon to pick up the starter. I got there, and he let me drive his pristine Grey SDL! It was a great ride, your can really feel that extra cylinder. We had a quick refreshment, Bob gave me a couple of 5 gallon drums for hauling WVO, and then we had to go.

Mad props to Bernard at European connection in Falmouth for giving me a Bosch rebuilt starter, and Bob for getting it for me!

I installed it this evening. It is amazing the difference!! I barly begin to bump the starter and its already running. And it spins sooo quickly!! Its amazing.

THANKS!

Commutator was probably in its way out in combo with some brushes needing replaced.

I like rebuilding my own starters since I have the means and the brushes cost all of next to nothing. But for the average joe, its nice to have that warrenty that comes with a reputeable rebuild shop...

Solenoids are such punks sometimes

Well, I had been having troubles with my "new" starter. The solenoid was clicking, but the engine would not turn. The battery was charged. I called Whunter and he told be to check the ground cables. Sure enough the grounding strap between the engine and chassis was loose! After tightening, she started right up!

I then finished up the 2-tank WVO conversion, and was actually able to drive it on WVO tonight! What an experience! WVO thread can be seen here
