Re: Pictorial - Rear End Rebuild Part 7 - Diagonal arm bush replacement

I am thoroughly enjoying your postings WBG, please keep up the excellent work as I am sure it will encourage other W116s and W107 oiwners to 'have a go' at such repairs themselves!

Re: High mileage Mercs

Re: High mileage Mercs

I sold my supercharged Calais with 166,000K's on the clock and still going like a new car. It had some wear points though, the drivers seat bolster was showing signs of wear from my abrasive blue...

I think that Photobucket deleted my photos as I had not opened the file for too long, anyway they were gone and I did not delete them.

Re: Oil Pressure Puzzle
