RE: Captain's '82 300D
Well I backed out the ALDA screw as far as it would go. I only went 1 turn and then stopped. I didn't force it any further. Its pretty peppy now! Will it back out further? I don't wanna break anything...

RE: Captain's '82 300D
Speaking from my purest save all classic Mercedes side... Capt'n, you really going to tear the motor out on that SD and swap it in with your 300D?

That's a nice looking, good running SD.... With original Cali Blue plates. I think it would be a shame to put her down. Unless something is seriously wrong with the the body.

RE: Captain's '82 300D
I would tell you to pull it right off and see how you like it but that seems to be an unpopular move with most people. You can always put it back on.

Yeah capt i was just wondering the same things as winmutt and DV.
Was the cap off the alda already?
And what was your decision on keeping the SD vs. engine swap into the tank?

RE: Captain's '82 300D
The cap was on (siliconed). It was split, so I am unsure if someone had messed with it prior or not... It only puffs a very tiny amount of black when I go WOT from idle in park. This car does not smoke one bit. I mean NO smoke, EVER.

In all reality My father is trying to keep me from tearing this car apart too. But I really don't like how big this thing is!

+ My D is so much more nimble
+ I like this color
+ Has better paint
+ Lowered already
+ Rebuilt suspension
+ Battery relocated
+ Electrical and vacuum mods done.
- Rear smashed up a bit
+ perfect interior can be pulled from the NA car and swapped into the maroon...

Nothing is seriously wrong with the SD, but it does have a couple issues:

- The front brakes are fucked and the car shakes like crazy when applied
- interior is kinda trashed
- Paint is flaking from being sprayed without any sanding or prep work on original paint
- Different front passenger fender

I just think the D is a better car than the SD... I may pull the 617 out of the D and just rebuild instead of doing a swap... I don't Effffing know, I cant make up my mind

Yes. If you floor it from a stand still you will leave a decent black bomb. But you can control it with your foot, if you accelerate normally there's no smoke. You won't be rolling coal at every stop light.

I vote for the tank just because the w126 isnt that grrreat of a performer offroad in comparison to the w123.
The w123 is over all just a more fun car, its lighter and more nimble.
You cant toss the w126 around corners like you can toss the w123..

Relocated the kick down switch... Don't mind the unfinished wiring. Once I decide I like it, I will solder everything up nice.

Just realized that this switch doesn't provide as much control as I wanted.... Seems like it depends on bowden cable position too.

I don't bother with the floor switch. I use a DPDT on-off-momentary switch on the dash to control kickdown when I want it.

RE: Captain's '82 300D
Yeah I was going to do a momentary on the side of the shifter handle like I did in the tank, but thought that's this is much better since I didn't need to buy a switch and I just press it like the high beam switch in an old GM car. Plus the switch still gets used and doesn't get all lonley under the diesel peddle! Heart

RE: Captain's '82 300D
So this car runs COLD unless I'm on the pipe or its warm out. Thermostat is new. Looks to have more anti freeze than water... Anyway, Attempting to put some electric fans on it that I had laying around... Bought a 185 degree on 175 degree off switch to put in the T-stat housing in place of the vacuum switch... Yeah well that 10mm x 1.0 thread is kicking my ass. Didn't really wanna buy a die for this but it seems to be rarely used thread. Starting to annoy me!

The EGR's vacuum thermovalve. If I can assume you're like 99.9% of the rest of the people here with a "non operational" EGR then that valve is only taking up space. The valve's port can be drilled and tapped (off the car) from 1/8NPT and up, including M10 used by Mercedes' temperature sensors/switches.

The 78-79 W116 300SD used a 100*c switch to control the front A/C fan. A feature they removed from .95x engine starting in 1980.

RE: Captain's '82 300D
I was trying to avoid taking the housing off the car to tap it. I wanted to stick a temp switch in the 10 x 1.0 mm hole but there isn't a switch that size anywhere that I can find. Seems like the 10mm hole is a little big for 1/8" NPT but guess that depends on how deep you go with the tap. 1/4" would definitely work but 3/8" looks to big to me.

The 100c switch would be perfect. what thread size is it? And do you have an idea of the 10mm x 1.0 size temp switches available?

I'd rather not put a probe through the radiator...

That looks like the cold engine temperature shut off for the HVAC blower motor.

That temperature sensor is for the 1985 only vacuum modulation system for the transmission. It's a 50º C sensor.

All I want to do is put a temp switch where the EGR vacuum was to control my fan relay without drilling and tapping the thermostat housing. I cant find any switches that are 1/4" NPT either.

M10x1 on the outside, right?
How long does the threaded section have to be, and what thread on the ID?

I could make an adapter out of brass for the grand price of shipping and the warm fuzzy feeling of helping out. Wink
EDIT:
Just read fully, I'm not sure of any temp SWITCH that will fit, but I have made an adapter for the Mitsubishi temp sensor in my truck that was 1/8 npt...

Maybe throw together a quick comparator circuit with ratshack parts, and use a temp sensor? Would be a good beginners project in electronics.

I forsee an LM393, an RS flip flop, and some random support components such as 2 variable resistors, a transistor to drive the relay, some protection diodes, and maybe some LED's to show state.

Can also abuse a 555 timer to get the comparator and flip-flop, and reduce part count a bit.

GAH, I'm rambling...

How long does the threaded section have to be, and what thread on the ID?

I could make an adapter out of brass for the grand price of shipping and the warm fuzzy feeling of helping out. Wink
EDIT:
Just read fully, I'm not sure of any temp SWITCH that will fit, but I have made an adapter for the Mitsubishi temp sensor in my truck that was 1/8 npt...

Maybe throw together a quick comparator circuit with ratshack parts, and use a temp sensor? Would be a good beginners project in electronics.

I forsee an LM393, an RS flip flop, and some random support components such as 2 variable resistors, a transistor to drive the relay, some protection diodes, and maybe some LED's to show state.

Can also abuse a 555 timer to get the comparator and flip-flop, and reduce part count a bit.

GAH, I'm rambling...

Oh man! Big Grin Does that include the BiPolarChingasValveSphincterMechanism?

Nope, it requires ~ 5 to 10 bucks in parts, a soldering iron, and patience.
Nice beginners project in analog design if you were interested.

Any temp switches smaller than 10mm that are in the right range?

Nothing even close to 10mm. Everything is 3/8" and 1/2" NPT, 12mm, or 16mm.
What I really need to do is drill and tap the EGT hole for the heater temp switch and drill the heater temp switch hole for 3/8" NPT

RE: Captain's '82 300D
Removed the rack limiter out of the IP this weekend. No change in power...

I need to make a socked to adjust the torque capsule
Also ... I noticed the car started to get sluggish and lack power; boost was coming on a lot slower and was low.

hmm... Huh

Idea...

Went to the "gas" cap and slowly turned while listening and WHOOOOOOSH!

The tank vent must be clogged or something...

It didn't take as long as I thought. I didn't remove anything from the engine... I could probly do it in 1-2 hrs tops. I had it back together in like 30 min.
