104 flywheel lock tool

The front crankshaft seal on my 95 E320 is starting to leak a bit, looks like I'll have a maintenance project in the next month or so. Anybody know where I can rent (or borrow) the flywheel lock tool. It is MB part number 601 589 02 40 00. There is also a seal press tool but I can probably get by without it. It is MB part number 601 589 03 14 00. I would normally just buy them both but it would be more than $200 for the pair and I'll probably just use them once........... I'd be happy to pay $40 to rent for a day or two.

Thanks,

J. M. van Swaay

How did you get bY?

Did you end up buying the tools?

What did you use to pull the ballancer off? MB recommends a special puller!

Are you interested in selling the tools?

I need to do the job in the next couple of weeks too!

I don't want to risk doing it again if I don't get the seal seated probably.

THnaks,

Franz

Bought the lock tool....... There are two styles of lock tools, one inserts at the bottom of the transmission, the other takes the place of the starter motor. I have the one that takes the place of the starter motor. I already had a generic puller that worked for the balancer--it came off very easily. I did not use the seal installation tool. Instead I used a block of wood and small hammer to tap the seal into place. You are welcome to borrow my lock tool. (Send me a deposit for the cost of a new one, plus round trip shipping. When I get the tool back I'll return the deposit.)

One tip when you do this job, make sure the crank is positioned as described in the service manual. There is a woodruff key between the balancer and the crank. Positioning as described insures the key is at 12 oclock. If it isn't, the key will fall to the bottom of the chain case........

Terrific...

Could you sent me a private message with your address and how much deposit is required, please?

Thank you for your offer!

I also have a generic puller with two claws which I will try first.

Kind regards,

Franz
