Re: Plastic tank + saddle tank: Breather line configuration

Seems fine. Again, please verify that your gas cap is the vented version. If not, you can drill a tiny hole and make it vented. Without that you will build a vacuum in the tank until the engine shuts off.

Re: Plastic tank + saddle tank: Breather line configuration

I used hardware store fittings to connect all of the vent lines to the filler neck. Works just fine - but be sure your fuel cap is the vented version (diesel).

Re: 460 cv joint

They're inside the steering knuckles - between the hub and ball on the front axle. To see them, significant disassembly is required.

Re: 460 clutch adjustment???

On some other brands of transmissions it is possible to add synchronizers to un-synchronized gears, but not on MB units. Such is life. It's easy enough to live with though. The good news is you don't have to fix anything.

Re: G-Unit aka Silver bullet

Yeah, those arrows can be faint, located in weird places, and covered with grease or rust. They are there.

Great persistence and thorough work (this time) - I hope the problem will now be solved for both shafts.

Re: CV boots - clamp or no clamp

Removal can usually be achieved with a few whaps from a plastic hammer... once the snap-ring is released, of course.

Re: 460 clutch adjustment???

Reverse has no synchronizers and will often grind slightly when selecting. To avoid this, you can select any other gear first, and then select reverse. It wont grind. This is normal behavior.
