Re: G pictures, post them here!

Gwagens are more difficult to put on a 2-post lift due to the frame rails being so much farther inboard than a more typical vehicle. It is best to use a piece of timber to bridge across the frame & lift from there, or a 4-post hoist.

Re: WTB: Manual transmission and/or engine+trans for w460

I have a 711.113 iron-box overdrive 5-speed available.

Also available is an iron-box 5-speed with crawling gear (non-overdrive).

Either box can be built up to have normal or ultra-low reverse gear ratio. Both are sold freshly rebuilt. Clutch parts also available.

Re: 3rd and 4th gear vibration

This is a road that has been traveled before. Of course I cannot remotely determine what is wrong, but the Spicer shafts have been nauseatingly developed and redeveloped with only rare success. The one successful configuration that has been available through the forum has all of the bugs worked out,...

Re: Labor for spring spacers install

I should add that the cheapie hooks-n-screw type HF spring compressors are "risky" at best. I had a new set that just popped a hook off compressing a wimpy Audi strut coil. Use with great care!

Re: 1983 300GD cabrio for sale 35k

Could we see some close-ups of the body sections under the doors and tail lights? The engine & undercarriage would be helpful too.

Thanks!

Re: G500 2002 nightmare

Sounds like a bad connection with the TPS connector or the ECM main plug. It could be something internal with the ECM also. It would be nice to swap another ECM in, but that might be harder than it sounds. Check the plugs, wiring in-between them. Work from the easiest to hardest things, but as Alan ...
