i have my own machine because it was costing me a fortune to get a local guy to do it. it uses water and fine glass beads(it looks like silica sand) . it pumps water at 30Psi but a very high volume helped with air at 2 bar. it can clean oily parts in seconds but doesn't pit the metal like air powered blasting does.
i have a question.. your cowl has the hole for the factory air con...was your car a air con equipped one? Is so it is incredibly rare in any NZ merc built before 1980 and any finny at all.

I use some strong webbing straps and wrap one around the front of the motor around the front pulley and another around and under the back of the motor.

Tie it all to the hook on the hoist or at either end of the balancer beam if you use one of these. I also use a big nylon rope as a secondary in case the webbing fails. They usually fail at the steepest angle or at the most inconvenient place.

Having said that, my webbing has never failed.

I would have thought that attaching to the rocker cover bolts to carry 400 or so kg is a bit risky, but if Ron has done it successfully ...... If those brackets that support the rocker cover distort, they would have a pretty big chance of coming in contact with the cam.

Ron, nah it hasn't had Aircon that I can see. You don't mean the big hole for the left light Wiring loom boot do ya?

Was it pricey for your blaster unit? It sounds awesome..

How u going with the motor Drew? I tied the motor in three different places- a chain bolted to the front of the motor with m10's I think and two tie downs, one in front of the bell housing and one where the gearbox meets the bell housing. I just adjusted the tie downs longer than the chain so that it lifted off the ground on around a 45 angle. It took a few goes to set the angle I wanted then it was a case of inching forward and lowering down until the gearbox flange was in the tunnel then had to get my mate to put a bit of force against the motor to create a bit more of an angle so that the gearbox wouldn't hit the firewall until the sump had cleared at the front then again with the inching forward and lowering down. 3 people are key for getting it in nicely I found. I had the lady watching on the left and stabilising and my mate on the right getting the angle of the dangle right and I had the easy job of just lowering it In!

Does anyone have a picture of how the hot spot valve things work on my exhaust manifold? I see there's a bi-metallic coil which is supposed to turn the flap inside one way or the other but is there supposed to be a spring to counteract the change?
The way they are setup at the moment they won't do anything... I've just read they are designed to direct the heat from exhaust gases to warm the mixture as it goes through the inlet manifold and once up to temp direct the heat away again. So should they be in a normally closed position while cold to direct heat upwards? And when up to temp they open up to let the gas and heat straight through to the exhaust pipe? :Doh:

Something has been covered here:

Might have a look into the werkstatt handbuch, see what they have to say.
I had a look on my car, but cannot see any counterweights. Might have to look into what has been done to these flappers...

Harry, I found this in chapter 14 of the Mercedes Werkstatt Handbuch. You need a zjerman translation by your friend or otherwise use google.

I had a look at Kermit again, and it turns out there were never flappers on mine. There are no holes in the cast of the manifolds...

Would any one happen to have an electrical plug to fit one of these new school Bosch Alternators? I bought this one already reconditioned but no plug to go with it. It's a higher output Alternator than the original generator to keep up with the electric compressor which powers the air suspension.

Curious as to how you obtained that pristine looking dash veneer. Is it a custom job? Will look very nice when the dash is all back together.

Jeremy, it was just a lot of tedious sanding, I hit it with 100 grit to get all the flakey varnish off and worked finer til the dark patches were gone, I've gone a little deep in places and will need repairing before I give it the final varnish but it's looking better than it was so I'm happy.

Can anyone help me, I'm looking for a part number on a particular part which I can only describe as a riser plate which sits sandwiched between the exhaust and inlet manifolds. It's a rectangular part with a large opening for the exhaust gases and four holes for the studs to go through, it looks like it might be made out of asbestos and I really need to replace the pair of them. Even if there was something aftermarket available to do the same job but they would need to be exact thickness in order for the inlet and exhaust manifold stud holes to line up. The ones I have here have broken around the holes.

Thanks in advance if anyone can point me in the right direction!

I am working at the moment but that riser is a gasket. Should be easy to get from Merc Classic center .I'll see what the part number ias later for you. I need a pair for my 220a project. Regarding my vaquablast machine,it cost me $4000 ,which is cheap considering a rebuilt one is $32,000 . arrrgghh! :laughing6: English technology from the 1940's.

Can anyone advise me on modern day lubricants to use for the gearbox, diff, steering box and brake/clutch system?
I've taken my car manual to the local tractor shop and they've supplied me with 2.5litres of EPX 80w/90 for the Diff and 1.7litres of Dextron 3 ATF for the gearbox and steering box. And dot4 for the braking/clutch system.
Is this going to be suitable? I appreciate any input anyone has.

Any GL5 specification oil will be suitable for non-lsd rear axles.
EP2 grease for universal joints and grease nipples that do not use a central oiling system.
LMM grease for CV joints (not that you would have them)
DOT 4 brake fluid is fine.
transmission fluid is the only super-specific issue really. Use the best quality synthetic gearbox oil you can find for a manual - like redline MTL, if you want the box to last beyond years.
but if the specification says automatic transmission fluid, you need to use one that complies with the MB specification.
Oil - well there are always 'guidelines'. use something within those guidelines that meets your budget and the specification.

Thanks for the info AMG.
I also found this on the pontons site:

Gear Box (Transmission)
Any ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) oil, that complies with GM Dexron II specifications (do not use Dexron III), hence the red color (the color is a dye, be aware that certain manufacturers color other types of oil for certain specific purposes, as is the case with the Mobil Delvac MX SAE 15w-40 diesel oil). What is the reason Mercedes-Benz used ATF oil in their gearboxes for many years? Well, many other manufactures, still use it today . Certain components used inside the gearbox, as is the case with the synchros which are bronze alloyed components, do not stand up well in the presence of conventional gear oils that are additivated with EP (extreme pressure) additives, if that oil is used these components will become pitted and corroded. What an irony, as the ATF oil was originally developed to increase friction between the automatic transmission discs and to lubricate, as well, the other components in the gearbox. In my Mercedes-Benz 220a manual MB recommends Texamatic fluid (a Texaco brand still used in many countries as is the case in Venezuela, I sell them for use in older Ford and GM cars and many others). In the USA, Texaco Havoline has an equivalent, or a Mobil 222 ATF is well suited. Remember it must meet Dexron II specifications. Never use a multi-grade oil in a gearbox. You could use a SAE 50 motor oil, but use the Dexron II. Quantity to be used: approximately 1 ½ qt.

I guess the stuff I've been supplied with is no good and should look for a Dextron II instead.
Very close to starting her up for the first time now. I'd just like to fill the gearbox with oil before starting.
Also have been told to run the engine in using just water in the cooling system without coolant additive. And premium high octane fuel. Does anyone else have any suggestions before I get too carried away?

Harry,

Having just water in the cooling system for a few days to check for leaks is ok.

But remember that the cooling system contains different metals (cast steel, aluminium, copper) and galvanic corrosion will start immediately after filling it with water.
Coolant acts as a corrosion inhibitor, amongst other properties.

It is best to dilute the MB coolant with demi(neralised) water, there is no calcium in it that can cause limescale.


A spectacular example of galvanic corrosion occurred in the Statue of Liberty when regular maintenance checks in the 1980s revealed that corrosion had taken place between the outer copper skin and the wrought iron support structure. Although the problem had been anticipated when the structure was built by Gustave Eiffel to Frédéric Bartholdi's design in the 1880s, the insulation layer of shellac between the two metals had failed over time and resulted in rusting of the iron supports. An extensive renovation requiring complete disassembly of the statue replaced the original insulation with PTFE. The structure was far from unsafe owing to the large number of unaffected connections, but it was regarded as a precautionary measure for what is considered a national symbol of the United States.

So i got the 62 finny driving last weekend!
Brakes and clutch bled and working beautifully.
Not running beautifully though as a bit of tuning required once exhaust is complete and air cleaner back on but pretty happy to get to this stage.
Next is paint for the remainder of the body and panels and now trying to track down new seals- i need everything besides front and rear windscreen seals. would anyone have a good contact? The windcreen seals i got are URO and seem to be a very good quality...

The bottom photo is the rear glass seal. ive fitted it to the glass to make it easier for fitting later on.
It seems to be a perfect fit onto the glass. but obviously it hasnt been installed back onto the car.
It seems to have the recess for the chrome trim so i cant see anything wrong with it. Havnt got the windscreen one out of the packet yet..

The rubber and the alloy strip go onto the glass before it's fitted to the car .Seal the edge of the glass too,before fitting the rubber. It prevents delamination later. When these cars were built the apertures for the screens were filled with mastic before the rubber went in .In these cases I put a bead around the aperture ,but just enough to seal the rubber and not make a mess when the thing is placed into position.When the glass is fitted, mastic must be squeezed into the rubber between the glass and the body.

Thanks for the tip Ron. So mastic between glass and rubber seal as well as between rubber seal and body? I can see why the chrome has to go in first it seems awfully tight trying it in an already fitted windscreen on the donor car.

Another question about the 220s i hope someone can help..
On my manifold the right hand (front of the car) fixing point shares the same stud as the chain tensioner. the manifold pushes firmly back against the gasket but the chain tensioner sits proud of the manifold due to there being a rubber sealing ring fitted between the tensioner and the head.
My problem is that i can nip that nut up on the tensioner until its squashing the rubber ring almost completey and it still does not make contact with the exhaust manifold meaning it could lead to a leak here. Am i missing something??
Cheers, Harry

Anyone seen one of these before? im guessing its a home made contraption.. Looks like someone has spent a lot of time making it!
Its been made to fit into the space between the front seats as a storage box. Just thought id share that with you lot as i just found it after being stored away for a couple of years

Those 2 Webers look quite impressive! Rest of the car does not look too bad either :bom: :jokercolor:

Did you coat your cooling fan or did you polish it?
My experience is that after polishing, it starts to corrode straight away...

Yeah Bart just Painted it for looks. Polished the rocker cover and some other bits though not expecting them to stay that way forever but looks good at the moment.

Hats off for your work, Harry!

This thread started two years ago, when did you start the resto? Pretty impressive incl. the speed of your work!

Good luck for the rest

Thanks Thomas! i bought the merc in 2010 with no idea about starting the resto and gradually got into it a year later. I have tried to do a little bit everyday after work wether its physical work or just researching and ordering parts and usually spend the weekends in the garage. Luckily I have an understanding girlfriend too as she came on the scene just after the Merc.
It will a strange feeling when there is no project anymore!
