Re: Pilot bearing, heat shield, spacer kit

It does not fit any G specific cast iron engine like OM616N/A, OM617N/A or OM617A from a sedan.

”Fits all manual trans G engines” probably should be corrected.

Re: Clutch or transmission noise question

1861775035 is the original Sachs friction disc for a w460 with 4-speed manual ironbox transmission. It does not have the additional damping on the spindle for the 5-speed manual ironbox transmission because it is not the Wolf specific part.

Re: Gear Oil Cap Fell Into Transfer Case

how much access could be gained by removing the cover for the speedometer cable? None. There is a closed space behind it with a small shaft sticking out a bearing. Small lubrication holes for the TC oil etc. If that thing refuse to flow out with the help of some thin viscosity oil, and you can’t re...

Re: Clutch or transmission noise question

The Wolf clutch designed for the 5-speed ironbox transmission in a G has a damper on the spindle that will reduce these noises when the clutch is engaged. There are atleast three different Sachs clutches that will fit between your engine and gearbox. TN van, w460 and w461 Wolf specific models. See i...

Re: Gear Oil Cap Fell Into Transfer Case

The problem is that there are parts sitting right close to the bottom of the TC. Things larger than metal shreadings don’t flow easily out of that drain plug hole. It all depends on how big the piece is. Try to flow alot of oil through the TC. You could probably use frying oil or ATF oil, that flows...

Re: Gear Oil Cap Fell Into Transfer Case

I managed to do something similar when pressing new oil into the TC by using a large syringe in cold weather. The plastic hose blew off the syring into the upper filler hole because of too much resistance with thick cold oil. I tried USB cameras and some gripping tool. Could see that plastic hose bu...

Re: FS: W460 OEM Set Front Floor Liner/Mats

I have no idea how it happened. I guess that thin film got punctured somehow, maybe a sharp small stone or so. The gas pedal area with the slit for the metal tab on the floor pan is a weak point aswell. The plastic sheet seemed to have zero damage or tears. I wouldn’t call it thick. The foam was com...

Re: FS: W460 OEM Set Front Floor Liner/Mats

Just be aware that the foam backing of these mats still absorbs water like sponges. Just like the old OEM floor mats. I had to remove all the foam backing on my new ones after only a few months of use in a G without water leaks, that is hardly used in rain. Pretty worthless design unfortunately. You...
