    W116 Instrument Clusters

    Styria the brief update is I’m still trying to sort things out since I got burged (yes again) just before Christmas. So much to do before I get the 560 on the road. The red 6.9 will be next. Then there’s the manifolds I’m working on too. Not to mention fixing a damaged daily after it had an...

    Penrite ISO15 Hydraulic Oil

    There’s some interesting new info on my Mercedes Benz HPF Facebook page... The poster suggests the 6.9 (& presumably the W126 HPF too) required thicker fluid to the regular SLS. It’s been suggested that SLS required 15W (Eg Penrite MB15) & HPF should be 32W. If true this is good news since the...

    W126 Exhaust Performance Upgrades

    I can see why some tuners try to use equal length primaries, but they don’t seem to realise that tight bends will also restrict flow...

    W126 Exhaust Performance Upgrades

    I’ve just been doing some calculations & if you believe one school of thought, exhaust primaries should be a minimum length for optimum flow. Of course space is the biggest issue here, but by my math (using optimum diameter pipe), the minimum primary lengths are as follows: 560: 538mm 6.9: 632mm

    Gemballa W126s

    I recently discovered this tuning company. All style without a lot of substance! Pity they didn’t tip more into driveline development. It didn’t finish well for the founder.... Very interesting story & maybe that’s why so many of our cars are referred to as ‘gangsta’?? If I had unlimited money...

    TK on Facebook

    We’re now at 6(.)9 members and growing. Hopefully with the fantastic changes to the website new members will begin to flow. Hopefully no so many that TK loses its ‘local pub’ appeal!

    New Drive-In Indoor Cinema!

    One of the silver linings of COVID is we’re now thinking outside the square. Some of the new changes are awesome ideas & should continue into the future. The biggest catalyst for change is often adversity. It’s a shame it often has to come to this to get people to be more inventive rather than a...
