Been Buying Parts and Tools Today!

Bought a fan blade for my Ď95 E300
Bought some glow plugs for my Ď93 300D
Bought some oil filters for both cars
Bought a Klann knockoff Spring Compressor for my Ď87 300SDL

...and my odometer gears arrived today. Thank you to one of the forum members for shipping those to me. That was a very kind gesture. I owe you, Chris!

Looks like Iíll be busy with my cars before long. Now, if I can just get my little Ford Ranger back together. I do NOT enjoy working on a gas engine, especially replacing a cylinder head on one!

I've been on my project car for 18+ months if you deduct 8 for two NCAA football seasons. If I'm not finished by fall camp I'm gonna slit my wrist.

Uh oh!

All these diesels have pretty much slit my bank account.

Fan

Oilslick...
I see you bought a fan for your 95 E300. Did you go stock or put the turbo models 11 blade on?

I have one electric fan out and the other has a lazy start. Those fans are so expensive I thought I may try the 11 blade for some additional hot weather cooling.

Excited...

to have the spring compressor coming. I need to replace the guide rod mounts on my w126 and I donít care anything about changing them like I have in the past. May just freshen up everything under the front while Iím there.
