An alternator adjuster hook? I need one for sure. However, the eyebolt worked perfectly and cost me only $5 and that only because I bought a stainless M10 bolt.

Yes, that's the type I have. I like your idea, I wish I had thought it up myself. It looks way less sketchy than the factory solution.

Alternator bracket fix?

1981 240D

Well, Crap. Now I feel like a moron! I'm sure glad I pulled the transmission for better access to that screw. </FACEPALM> Anyway, you were right TheDon, that fixed it up just fine. I wonder if that...

I just dropped the tranny from my 1981 240D today with the intention of putting a much lower mileage tranny that I got at the wrecking yard. The transmission in the car wasn't shifting into 1st...

Radiator installed

The radiator installation went just fine. It is only about 1.75" wider and that width all goes to the passenger side, so the oil cooler fits just fine. The only difficulty I had on this job was that...

So, I picked up an expansion tank along with it's associated hoses and the larger fan shroud at the local MB wrecker today. The oil cooler looks like it will hang on the side of the new radiator in...

Radiator conversion for 1980 240D

So, I bought the wrong radiator for my 240D and I'm curious about what it will take to just convert to the radiator I now have rather than deal with the hassle of returning it. What I bought by...

The cap gasket seems to be in good shape in the sense that it would prevent fuel from splashing out, though not from being forced out under pressure. I could not locate the filler neck assemblage in...
