    Clutch issues 463

    Perhaps you could remove the master and eliminate pedal friction, to add to your existing tests. After that i would bet on clutch fork. Worn on pivot, or the slave rod dimple or cracked and flexing.

    OM602 (290) Engine mounts

    Mount arms / brackets. Just a guess, they might also be available from Musso. It is after all a 602 engine

    GL Lighting

    Except with a 240 you dont need lights because by the time you get to where the lights shine, it is morning anyway.

    Johan's had over 350 000km on it when last i spoke to him... I see for a little more money you can now get a G350 from webuycars. I wonder if they can also go 350 000km as cheaply as a 290?

    Thanks Alan. I think it came out quite well. I am looking forward to sticking black stuff on it. I see i am missing quite a lot of bits for this car. I remember now why i bought the Chicken coupé!

    Cabrio project.

    TRD in Pta west is a wizard with car panels - no warping. I am not familiar with 90. I use Hardtop Flexi regularly in my business and 80 as an undercoat / rustproofer on my rebuilds.

    Cabrio project.

    Ja ja Alan. I will show you later. I think you are wrong about tiefdunkelgrau though. It is the 51st shade of gray - very sexy colour - for over 60's who love their own chassis. Jotun has a whole range of high solid finishing colours (Hardtop flexi for eg) but they are difficult to apply to a...

    Cabrio project.

    The body is done and it has come out very well. It is MB Arctic white base and clear - can see my nostril hairs in it. Time to start the chassis: 1. Does anyone know definitely what the tiefdunkelgrau number used on 460's is please. I see there are a number of them with that name called DB 716x...

    Wanted: spare wheel carrier for alloy wheel

    Parts of this story are reasonably true about a set of tyres i once owned. Here is how it rubbed me - the plainly lettered side of the tyre, which i prefer outermost, had fine ridges in the sidewall radiating outwards instantly trapping dirt, which meant my tyres were always brown. I do not roll...

    Wanted: spare wheel carrier for alloy wheel

    Afaik the only difference involves if you want the world to see the inside or the outside of the rim. If you want fairface out then you have to have an extension tube made to enable this. I nearly did this some years ago - not to show the world how beautiful my steel rim looked but to try and...

    The first AMG G?

    I have a friend with a diabolically ugly dog called Windpomp, that he really loves. He says that when he wakes up and looks at Windpomp he realizes that life is not that bad. I want this G badly.

    G-wagen 290 turbo??? engine and gearbox, R12.5k, W Cape

    You are correct about the engine - OM 602 DELA - 290 turbo. The gearbox is from a Sprinter and does not fit into a G transmission tunnel without body lifting and cutting. It never was offered as a G option. I think both engine and gearbox are originally from a 412 sprinter
