I need muffler info

I have a 82 300sd, the muffler broke off in the middle and lost about a foot and a half of pipe, my dad decided to take the two back tanks off for some reason, how important is it to have this stuff on your car and should I be in a rush to get a new muffler and all? Does anyone know where i could get this stuff cheap because MB is charging almost a grand for all "3" mufflers

I recently pulled the exhaust off the SD and eliminated the kidney resonators. The pipes leading into the resonators were all shot, so I had a local shop near Port Jefferson weld in a section of aluminized tube to replace the resonators and the pipe.

LMK if you want to go this route. I'll get you the exact address. It's better if you bring the vehicle to them. I just took the pipes there and they were not too pleased with that. But, it only cost $50.00, so I was OK with it.

oh yea i'm definitely up for that, i still have the resonator and everything in my back yard, i just need a pipe about a foot and a half to go into it, but the guy at meineke said i bent my pipe, i don't know, but yea i'd definitely be up for going to see the muffler guy you know. Do you know how much it costs to have a water pump put in? i think that is going also but i'm not sure, i keep losing coolant

the pump is around

$50 i believe. labor of two hours should do it. maybe a little less.
labor may cost from $50/hr up.

if the mechanic buys the part it will prob cost you $100.

ok, because this mechanic was pricing it at almost $200. I used to do all the work on my car with my dad but he's been in and out of the hosipital lately for kemo therapy or however you spell it so i do what i can and let the mechanics do the rest. I guess I will shop around more for the pump

The shop is called United Exhaust.

They are located at 1575 Route 112, Port Jefferson Station.

Tel: 474-0010


With regard to the water pump, you absolutely can do this yourself. I just put a brand new one in the SD and it takes no more than one hour. There are five screws that hold the pump on and four screws that hold the clutch to the water pump shaft. The most difficult part of the job is the four screws that hold the clutch. You need to slightly modify a box wrench to fit around the head of the screw. Otherwise, you have to risk using an open end........not a good proposition. The water pump is easily removed. Clean the surface thoroughly, use a touch of hi-tack, install the gasket, and install the pump.

The pump is now about $80.00. brand new. Rebuilts are less.

That water pump should cost you less than $30 to buy if you go to a chain parts store. A few hours to pu tit in w/ some descent tools and a set of helping hands. As far as the exhaust, I'd just straight pipe it if it's leagal in your area. Sorry to hear about your Dad. Good luck with everything.

Autozone sells Bosel exhaust for your car around $200 with a lifetime warranty. You can also get a water pump there around $30

What size tools did you use for the job? What kind? just so i can jump right to it instead of running back inside for different sizes. I am pretty sure we can legally put the straight pipe on, it will just be loud, not that I mind thought but i know my neighbors will when i pull in the driveway at 5 am

Do you have to remove any belts when doing the water pump? I took a look at it today and it looks impossible

As best as I can remember, you have to remove all the belts. It's a really good time to replace them while you're at it. That's what I did. They don't add that much cost to the project. I think my belts were only about $5-$7 each. The hardest part of the whole project is removing the radiator fan and then putting it back on. It takes some patience.

The Haynes book and Mercedes CD says to remove teh radiator itself, but you don't have to. Just be carefull to not punch a hole in it with a careless move.

I Would Run A Strait Pipe If It Wasnt Too Loud... I'd also stop captilizing the first letter of each word, cause its hard to read

Dont have too much tech to add, just wanted to note that if its too loud please dont do it, and not to capitilze the first letter of everything...
