Art, is he using the correct colour coding for all the wiring?

Where can you get original colour coded stuff?

Kai,
He showed me a box of reels of wire. I doubt I could lift it. He said he could get every colour code except one. He's planning to do looms for all 3 of his cars. The patterns are for #5810 using its loom to make the detail. You can't see it very well in the picture, but there are studs screwed into the plywood at every junction that guide the wires. When I did the 190SL back in the late 1980's, there was a company here that rebuilt and recovered wiring looms with the original woven cloth finish. I had them do the 190SL loom and they did a great job. I don't now if they still exist. I probably have a business card here somewhere. I will certainly have an invoice.

There are two companies in Victoria who also make them and cover them using a special machine which knits the fabric covering onto the wires to duplicate the factory loom. Considering the materials that original looms are made of i have never come across too many that weren't reuseable,even my 1956 220a has it's original loom.
Because the wiring is DIN coded all wiring colours can be obtained easily.

I have a contact who has new injector pump elements for M100 engines . Contact me for details.

Contrary to popular belief, the W pump is not the hottest ticket. The Z pump is.

If you aren't constantly impressed with your car, then it needs fixing.

..and after pulling a few apart,it's not the pump that is different,just the 3D cam. A Z cam will work in any of the pumps giving the same performance once the fuel delivery is set. As the cams are no longer available I got a profile program made ($$$$) for them.In future if anyone needs to install the Z cam i will look into getting some made.

Hand brake assemblies are in.





For those who are not mechanically minded, that toothed worm gear is the hand brake adjustment device. When your hand (park) brake handle has too long a length of travel, it is not only necessary to shorten the cable at that adjustment, but also important to adjust this device which is at the opposite end of the shoes from where the cable attaches. If you don't, then the shoes will not be an equal distance from the drum at both ends and will apply and wear excessively only at the cable attachment end. The device is reached when the brake disc (rotor) is in place via a specially placed hole in the disc. End of sermon.

Here is the other end of the brake shoes where the cable attaches.





General view of current state of left rear with the disc still off. It's on after I took the picture





Here is the right rear. Note the extra hole between the bolt holes in the disc towards the rear at 10 o'clock for the hand brake adjustment. The smaller hole at the top at 1 o'clock is for the locating lug.





Here is a bit of a worry. That brand new airbag has split where it is pulling on the piston.

I am sure they come with splits as standard.

BTW adjusting the handbrake shoes can be done on the car by undoing one wheel bolt,rotate the bolt hole to the 10 o'clock or 2 oclock position and ,when you look in the bolt hole you can see the star adjustor . you can adjust it properly with leverage from the wheel on it. normally it's something that hardly ever needs to get done,but sometimes the car is driven with the handbrake on....

I am surprised he went with the Koni shocks instead if the Bilsteins...was there a particular reason?

If my memory is correct, he wanted to fiddle with the adjustability to see what effect it had on handling.

I think the silver car from Mike Smart had a set of Koni's on it too.

Does that mean he really plans on driving this car?
I would be afraid of getting these bits dirty...yes I am serious...if I did this level of restoration...I dont think I clould bring myself to drive it hard or even in the rain.
