Engine's nearly completed now but still waiting on a few more bits & pieces , got the pumps etc test fitted so i can make sure i've got all the pieces (found a few that had missed the plating).





Now moved onto re-assembling the gearbox

Beautiful! It looks like you enjoy it, that said, why don't you crate it up, send it my way and I'll send you a nice fresh one to work on! Seriously, stunning work, thanks for posting.

Hi Paul,amazing!!! Respect!!
What kind of seal do you use for the oil pan of the transmission??
I start getting mad by this cork thing.....
Torque should be only 10 NM but it constantly refuses to be leak-proof
Engine in (from above) takes us about 60 min., out 90 minutes (incl. exhaust), we started with a day....that is the kind of progress nobody wants!!
In/out/in/out ouch!!!

I'm using the Mercedes cork gasket. The problem with pressed steel oil pans is that the bolts get over tightened and the flange becomes deformed around the holes. I made sure the flanges were flat (every bolt hole on this pan was deformed) & so hopefully it will not leak.

Just started looking at the door hardware. Pulled the window lift motors apart , all they needed was a good clean - removing the old grease that had just about set & then reassembling & adjusting the armature endfloat. The teath on one of the lift arms are worn but hopefully we've a spare that can be used.

I have had great success with loctite 542 flange sealer . It only sets hard under pressure and remains sticky otherwise. It doesn't leave hard(ish) lumps like selastic silicone does , which can and will end up in places where you dont want it.

Thanks for that Art - my arms are still recovering from sticking them through the small openings !!

Had a bit of luck & found a NOS Hirshman aerial in Germany




The other 6.3 we have here as the original Mercedes mounting bracket so i was able to copy it

Did you get all the ducting ? there are special block off plates for the eye ball vent boxes etc . the eye balls are no longer connected to the air scoop in front of the windshield. I have complete set up for W108 and W109s here and it takes two large boxes to contain all the parts.

We brought this as a parts car because is had A/C in it





After we removed all the A/C from it we decided it was to good to scrap so another friend had it , he was not bothered about A/C but we have most of the bits needed from a fire damaged car so it could be put back later

The owners parts books have very pics of all the extra bits for the aircon if you need a reference. Even the firewall pads are different . There is also a sound pad under the air scoop on the passenger side above the blanked off eye ball vent hole .
The aircon option must have been a seriously expensive item back then considering the low numbers on right hand drive cars and the difference between right and left hand drive.
