Re: 1983 280GE BM10 build and restoration

My Pierburg number is 7.20376.00 and has the same mounting orientation as Gdrive shared. Other than the stamped number they look EXACTLY the same. I wonder what the difference is between the .00 and the .02 Mercedes part for 7.20376.00 is A000 094 08 65 Mike Mike, take a look at this - https://www....

Re: 84 SWB 606NA conversion

Excellent progress. What a treat, to just concentrate on an engine swap rather than a complete refurbishment constantly waiting for parts and time.

Re: 1983 280GE BM10 build and restoration

There could be a difference in either the return spring or the drilled orifice. The former would require a different amount of vacuum to actuate, the latter would control the rate of pressure equalization in the chamber. In the end the two versions could offer slightly different response times to &...

Re: 1983 280GE BM10 build and restoration

Looks like you are coming along fine. I just pulled my intake side off to refresh rubber idle air hoses,vacuum hoses,install new air valve and an unexpected broken decel valve. While I am there I decided to tackle the centering of my steering shaft to cancel turn signal switch properly. Also, on rei...

Re: W460 Steering Shaft Install - Retaining Ring Issue

I ended up pulling the steering tube. It seems the end bearings were giving me trouble on shaft removal...as at least one of them needs to be removed from the end. I will replace with new bearings and renew everything while it is out. I hope the steering tube goes in as easy as it was to remove...I ...

W460 Steering Shaft Install - Retaining Ring Issue

I separated the steering shaft so I can separate steering shafts and align the steering wheel. In order to do so, I removed the steering wheel and upper retaining ring to allow shaft movement and help enable separation at U-joint. I know, this was stupid. Now I cannot get the shaft installed correct...

Re: 460 461 Fuel Tank A4604701201 & Kit A4614700004

Wow, pretty fancy there. I had a "me too" moment in 2012 when I developed a pinhole leak while visiting in Northern California. Putty application stopped it until I got back home. Rust was the culprit from dirt/dust buildup in area between tank and protection plate...as you have illustrate...

Re: What is more desirable for re-sale, automatic or manual transmission?

I always consider the Cabrio to be a “sportscar” so to speak....sportscars are made to be fun to drive. I feel a cherry cabrio ( in my world ) would probably be utilized to hobnob around town and a weekend funmobile....hence the manual transmission. If this was a 3 or 5 door more suited for daily co...
