Replace the manifold

My intake manifold was so clogged with gunk I thought it would be bad for the environment to use all the solvent it would have taken to clean it. So I took a nice shiny manifold off a 1979 300 SD and put it on my 1982 300D. It is obvious to any inspector that the car was built without a EGR valve and it looks so much nicer without the extra junk cluttering the engine compartment or that god awful looking cover plate besides I like to leave no evidence, so that is a nice clean solution to a ugly problem shoot any one from the government that looks under the hood is so baffled by the lack of spark plugs they have no clue there should be a EGR POS on the car.

oops

Appears I stepped in something I assure you it was unintentional. I will assume some one here is making just out standing cover plates and I for one think they look almost as good as the W116 manifolds that never had the EGR valve. I hope that helps remove my boot out of my mouth.

No sweat Dave.

I make these kits every so often that can eliminate the valve. The intake is covered with a 1/8" machined stainless plate that matches the contour of the machined surface on the intake. They are fastened with stainless button head cap screws. Looks pretty good, especially when compared to an old rusty valve.

I couldn't see one...
my '82 doesn't....

The unit off of my 300SD seems to like being kicked multiple times as I walk through the garage and look at it, all pitiful on the floor.

You time has come to an end little EGR.

so does an 83 240D have one? I can see a corrogated tube.
BTW does my car have a air bag? I wanted to know something exploding in your face when you crash is not a good idea IMHO

I'm fairly certain that the 240D has EGR. It does not have an airbag.

It's kind of hidden under the front of the air cleaner, just follow the corrogated tube. It will be the rusty thing with the vacuum line attached to it.

On a 1985 300DT, where is the egr vacuum line connected to? I found an EGR "black box" behind the passenger side kick panel. I'd like to remove that unit as well and have my toolbox inspect it for a while. Any hints/tips would be greatly appreciated.

It would be nice to have a Mercedes star stamped onto the cover plate.
