Re: Air in Fuel Lines.

I buy mine from McMaster Carr, but I'm sure there are other sources if you don't need a whole bag of each size. MB sells them at a 10X markup I assume. Do you folks have McMaster up there? O-rings can be removed with a sharp pick tool. No need for a new IM gasket. Many of us have re-used ours repeat...

Re: Air in Fuel Lines.

I would buy a set of viton O-rings to replace all of the fuel line seals while you're in there. Took me less than an hour on my E300 even with the IM removal. Most of the rubber bits seem to get leaky at the same time.

Re: Mounting an Air Compressor

I have the Puma now, and it's a fantastic compressor. I'm embarrassed to admit that I almost always defer to the Harbor Fright compressor instead. It's lighter, smaller, and pumps extremely well. I've got 35" tires on 16x8" wheels and usually air down to 15 or less. This thing pumps them b...

Re: online 720.1 workshop manual?

Bolt it up and see if there's enough adjustment in the linkage to hook up to the trans - also if it can row through the gears without hitting the center console.

Re: online 720.1 workshop manual?

I doubt any manual would explain exactly that process, but most things will bolt right up. I'd make sure the shifter will bolt up and align where it needs to as there are some variations in positioning. Don't forget the transmission cooler lines - make sure your radiator has the cooling ports on the...

Oh sweet! I guess I'm tainted by the "not fun" diesel vac stuff. Thanks Chris!

Re: Kingpin bearing replacement disaster...

In my experience, it is often the case that one king-pin has no shim. Still, doing a check is not a bad idea.

Re: gauges

I like the position of having gauges on the upper dash like that, but this one leaves the multi-gauge too far away for my liking. I'd keep the original positions but place the added gauges to the outside of the steering wheel. There's probably room in place of the radio - I think I've seen that befo...

Re: online 720.1 workshop manual?

Do you mean the swap or internal information about the trans? The main challenge you will have is with the vacuum/shifting system. You're probably best off stealing those bits off a 280 sedan or coupe from the same generation.

Re: gauges

Bad photo, and not ideal placement for viewing, but fine for infrequently needed gauge referencing:
