Re: Shaftless Throttles

I was just thinking which way I would get blown - up or down, slow or fast, what if the massive back pressure is too high and escapes into the atmosphere ? Could be disastrous. Regards ...

Re: Car of the week

Mercedes 300SE Coupe - it starts off brilliantly, but one needs to read further. I think it's Sales Talk extraordinary of a model that, as a rule, can be simply magnificent. This one isn't, but I...

Re: The Rover P5/P5B

Not only have I seen this car at one of the All British Days at the Kings School, but its owner was quite willing to let me photograph some of its more salient features. There is no way that one...

Re: Car of the week

Beautifully finished - in my opinion, one of the nicest, if not the, Mercedes Benz models you can buy. Patrick, how would this car compare with your Audi ? I know engine sizes are completely...

Re: LED Headlights

Patrick, my friend, that is an absolutely "humongous" explanation and my simple mind just cannot follow it. However, as some "Shorten " once said, it must be right and I agree even if I didn't hear...

Re: Valve Sizes

You're about dead right Anthony - I mulled over the two engine differences and my mind went blank. I should have known better. Regards Styria

Re: I can see clearly now!

I have been lucky in not having to had any screens replaced for some years now. My only criticism refers to a screen that I had fitted to Gleaming Beauty some twelve years ago. My understanding was...

Re: Valve Sizes

Mark, these valve measurement specs. - are they for a 6.3 or 6.9 ? I do know for a fact that the valves for the two models are completely different. Regards Styria

Re: Mercedes greatest hits

It is a great book and makes for some interesting reading. I was lucky to spot it at the Newsagent at Merrylands. He told me that he got in two copies and I was the one to snare the second one....

Re: The Rover P5/P5B

Hi Brian, I wish you'd call it by its appropriate model designation, i.e. P5B 3.5 litre. It's perhaps an anomaly, but it would save any possible misunderstanding by those that are not familiar with...

Re: Memnoch

Geoff, you don't think you could get the car back to Canberra or Sydney ? You would have much better control over its desired completion date - now that you are in the trade, you know Michel and even...

Re: The Rover P5/P5B

Hi Geoff, I am a Rover and Mercedes 6.9 tragic - can't get away from that. Your buddy Stoo - I am jealous - he probably got all of his at the right price.Regards Styria

Re: The Rover P5/P5B

I am not certain which model Benz Boy refers to. He mentions P5 3500 so I presume that he refers to the car normally known as the P5B, the car with the V8 engine introduced to the large bodied P5...

Re: Car of the week

Hi Geoff, I very much like the exterior colour, and certainly the interior is most attractive to the eye - a nice, rich caramel, and in beautiful condition. Mileage - so so. Would I buy it ? No, not...

Re: Bosch D-Jetronic Fuel injection 1974 280 SE W116

Hi Jim, this person may well be your best friend yet. Lots of guys familiar with the older Benzes have either retired, or even kicked the can. I can't really comment on Mark's suggestion - the cost...

Re: A need to think and research more
