MB Wing mirrors

Thank you gentlemen.
Bearing in mind your comments I'm nervous about damaging glass/ shroud so now considering other options as to where improved side winkers might be better placed.

MB Wing mirrors

Peter you are a star. So much information!
Can you say, before I break it. Is the glass held in place with clip(s) so that we simply pull/ lever/ persuade it free?

MB Wing mirrors

There are a couple of screws holding the mirror and mechanism in place - put together with a special screwdriver I suspect. Not easy to get undone but if you are going to fit a new plastic "shroud" you can afford to damage the old one Thanks Peter. I suppose I must first remove the whole assembly f...

I need to dismantle a door/ wing mirror assembly to get behind the actual mirror.
Before I start forcing/ breaking old plastic shall be grateful for advice on how to take the assembly apart.

20psi coolant pressure?

The first question is - why? I'm playing with radiators/ engine cooling at the moment and simply curious to know if current thinking can be applied to our older cars with good effect. It seems that in localised areas within an engine the coolant temperature can rise well above that indicated by the...

20psi coolant pressure?

The 2.9efi engine (Middlebridge) has coolant system pressure cap at 14psi. Most modern cars run at about 20psi (advantage being that higher boiling point temperature gives less chance of steam forming in localised hot spots).
Do we think the 2.9efi engine would be OK at 20psi?

Engine, preserving for long term storage?

Recently bought a decent used engine (2.9efi) "just in case" but hoping I'll never need it. What is best way to preserve internals for long term storage in the back of the garage? For example, is it worth filling the block with 100% antifreeze (to hold back waterways corrosion)? After using preservi...

2.9efi Clutch change issue

OK I've done something wrong. Idiot! Did a clutch change and on starting up after reassembly there is horrendous tinny rattle from clutch housing area. I put fingers on the thin tin plate that goes between engine block and clutch housing (what is proper name for that plate?) and can feel the plate v...

Growly gearbox

"Extra bearing"? I'm curious. Are you saying some Type 9 gearboxes have an additional bearing? If so what does it support and why? Thanks This article should be worth a read :D Excellent article Roger. Though it mentions the 2.8 engine it is silent on the 2.9 so my questions are:- (1) Is the uprate...

Growly gearbox

The only way of telling if it’s the later “uprated” box is to look at the front when it’s removed - the plate with the blue bolts shows it has the extra bearing. "Extra bearing"? I'm curious. Are you saying some Type 9 gearboxes have an additional bearing? If so what does it support and why? Thanks
