That is what my difff and trans should look like!How about all the parts you describe having replaced? Are those all available from MB still?I WOULD love a parts list, linked to those 2 jobs.. If you have kept one?
QuoteThe car's mechanicals are coming along nicely. I bet there are still quite a few components to be refurbished. Are you going to do any plating in the engine bay?
QuoteTell me, are those russet coloured timing chain guides the new ones, I always thought they were a white/ivory colour?
QuoteAs I understand it, the guides are very cheap from M-B, and it's better to stick with the originals.
QuoteYou must not forget to get the guys to change those two hoses you can see that are now exposed. I remember buying that large hose, it was astonishingly eye-wateringly expensive, that goes from the engine block to the water-pump. I have held mine back until we do this job, then I will swap it over. At the same time, they should replace the hose clamps if they are shot, but with the type that doesn't pitch the hose (I just bought mine from M-B). I didn't realise that there was a second smaller hose there...

Quote from: s class on 07 September 2015, 02:52 AMThe 42mm ID hose is sold by MB by the metre, which is why it ends up expensive. However, I strongly recommend you use this proper MB stuff, aftermarket hose deteriorates pretty quickly, and its a real bastard to get in there again to replace that hose.
