Repair Guidance: 1974 280c

recentley Purchased a 1974 280c, How do I :
1) Remove Steering wheel to access Broken turn Signal
2) Disassemble dash to remove and repair broken Speedometer
3) Figure out why no one lists a fuel filter for this car when I can see it next to the fuel pump.

Thanks

Don't know about CD-Roms for this car. You might try the following WEB site. They carry books for alot of older cars. Thye may have one for yours:

And if you are looking for fuel filters, look no further than the top of this page. FastLane and PartsShop have almost everything or anything you'll need.

Glad to see you fixed the turn signals Bill. Really easy to do, isn't it?

Paul,

In email you mentioned not finding the thread. That's probably because the threads that were found were by others. My response(s) are buried in there. Here is a link to the turn signal repair , last posted to TXBill's new 240D post from last month. This should get you on track with repairing the combo switch.

As for the steering wheel removal. I'm not certain which style of wheel you have, is it the old Bakelite wheel (Hard plastic, large horn ring and about a 5 inch center) or is it the newer style with the rectangular center and soft grip wheel?

The former you have to pop off the center then remove a large nut deep in the wheel. The latter, just carefully pry out the three point star in the center of the wheel, then using a 10mm hex socket (the type with the allen wrench) and an extension, remove the retaining nut. CAUTION: The retaining nuts are on tight, tight, tight DO NOT use the steering wheel lock to counter the force of loosening the nut. Unlock the wheel and have another person steady the wheel while loosening the nut initially. Once the nut is removed , the wheel should just slip off the slines with gentle persuasion (very gentle in the case of the Bakelite wheel).

Hope this helps.
