I like the idea of the knorr valves .I was looking at using hendrikson valves but those look smaller and better. What are the part numbers?

I use Knorr SV1485, but in that valve range there are other options also.

I haven't been in a hurry to do something outside, it has been now colder than -25C (-13 Fahrenheit) the whole January...So I got time to tinker in the garage.

Yesterday I got the K-Jet fuel pump bracket cleaned and painted. This one I just made rust free with citric acid and painted satin black. I got few more brackets, those I will get yellow zinc plated a bit like the originals are.

Actually the black and metal looks quite ok installed.

Have been bit busy with winter sports and my "new-old" winter car: S124 300 TE 4matic.

But actually I managed to reach sought of milestone today. I let the video "speak" for itself...

Hi all,

I have been bit lazy with updates as well as with the car also. I made some progress anyhow, so here is quick update.

Got the thing then running....actually it was the first time for the engine in years...maybe 10 years or more. Drove the car carefully out to idle...with handbrake as the only stopping device.



Then came summer and ohter things.

Lately I installed cooling fans from W124 300 ce.



And windshield with new sealing. I recommend original one, it fits and holds chrome parts perfectly. Gargo strap is a good aid if you are doing this alone.



Got also bit worn (fit perfectly to my idea of sleeper) set of w124 leather seats. The color is also exactly what I want to have.



This is now current status. The fenders are rusty, but thats ok for my idea. There are plenty of scratches all over the car. Wheels are going to be something like in front, 15" or 16" matt black steel wheels with 225 wide tires. Also the ride height will be something like this. Rear wheel is witer tire...we have plenty of snow and Ice here. Orange color is just protection tape. I paint the sills already. The bowls under the car are for old engine oil. I was changing oil at the time of the picture...18 liters, from oil canister, sump, cooler and filter.

Got some inspiration to fix the rear window frame and parcel shelf loudspeaker holes. I fix the shelf and frame with repair pieces cut from w108. Then some rust removal, painting and sound proofing. I fit the rear window with new original MB sealing. Notice a German road assistance organization sticker from seventies.











And then I fit the rear lid without lock and hinges...just for feeling.



Then I drove the car out from garage to check the stance...high position is bit too high. I have to play little with valve lever lengths.





It is easy to see that front end is 400kg heavier than rear end. It drop so fast, that I wasn't fast enough to film it properly. Rear spike tires slip on ice unevenly, so the rear drops in phases.

High position will be good to clear snow drifts.

I have both 15" and 16". 16" needs spacers but I haven't decided yet which size I will use.

Bitumen and carpet...

I was fixing few evenings the W109 soundproofing. The bitumen insulation was a bit damaged due massive welding job for the chassis. I didn’t want to remove the original soundproofing more than needed, I find the original just nicer. I used just normal bitumen sheets, they are now bit too shiny, but I guess the will turn to matt afterwards.










I purchased few years ago original look alike carpet from German EBay. It is quite easy to cut and because the base of the carpet is quite stiff and you can form it with heat gun, you can form it to follow the sheet metal forms quite nicely. The base for the parcel shelf is from old cupboard. I haven’t glued the carpet yet on the floor, they just stay there because of the “heat forming”.

Hi,

have been bit lazy with my 6.3. But got something done anyway. I installed an interior mixture from W114, W108 and W124. The carpets in the picture are dirty, they are just as decoration. Rear seat is just from w108 as the one from W124 is bit too narrow. I'm looking for another pair of front seats to have individual rear seats.

As you can see some details are missing from dash and the wood trim is from newer W108 as there are no clock.

When fixing the headlights and horn, I started to check out some cables in wiring harness. They didn't have any kind of voltage or earth connection so I skipped them earlier, thinking that they are aircon cables. But yesterday I started to do some digging so I foud that somebody had later installed option 452 (two tone horn) to my car.

The horns were missing but cable loom was still there with the switch lying inside the dash. (thought it was for rear window defroster, because of the cable size) Then I realized that the brackets i thought were for undershielding were actually for extra horns. So now i have to find those extra horns...at this point i guess, I just buy some after market ones. So i'm going to have 5 pcs horns under the bonnet, they shoud produce some noise :)
