Bingo

That's it! If the car has a nice, sound body and a decent engine, your golden. Worst case scenario is you find out the suspension is shot. Still, suspension rebuilds are better than body or engine...

My 240D manual gets a pretty decent 24-27 MPG usually. I generally do a full engine tune-up (valves, purge, etc) twice a year; once before the cold weather sets in (where I also switch to 10w-40) and...

I live near Everett and work in Bothell, occasionally driving down to Northgate/U-District to hang out with friends. I'll keep a look-out for this one, buddy!

Around here, we have "speedometer check areas" on the freeways, usually in the 70+ MPH stretches. Each marker is EXACTLY one mile apart, to the inch. I like to go by these at various speeds: 70, 60,...

So correct me if I'm wrong...alternator needs more power = more tension on the V-belt = engine has to work harder to turn belt...? Same logic behind the A/C compressor deal?

Well that explains why I didn't see anything. It is infact mechanical.

But how does the alternator "load" the engine? Like I said, I thought the electrical system and the engine mechanical systems...

Why not?

I think I heard about this...I work near Seattle (Bothell, actually) so I'd be game. Is this the one where they're turning used markers into bio-fuel?

WTB: Radio for W123, preferably Becker

Hey guys. I'm looking for a period radio for the '79 240D. Has to function normally. I'm mainly looking for either a Grand Prix or a Mexico Cassette, but really any will do. :)

Even without snow tires, they're still tanks. We had quite a bit of snow a few weeks ago here in Washington. My '79 4-speed plowed through everything without snow tires or chains. :D

Would this work on one of these bolts? I find it kind of hard to believe, unless it chews/grips on the outer portion of it.

Which is the compression nut...? From what I see, each section has 3 nuts; one large one where the fuel comes out and two smaller ones flanking it.
