I only have three comments. 1) I like Tire Racks user review section where you can view ratings on several different qualities. 2) As for lifespan (and these tires did not live in a desert) Im shocked at how good a set of (what I believe are) 20-year-old Bridgestone Potenza 2057014 tires have held up. They look brand new with NO cracking at all. Ive (done a stupid thing and) ran these tires (that came

As for me I prefer a grand touring type tire.... quiet and comfortable. And I did ask for age
Im going to make a separate document to keep on my computer so I dont have to keep re-typing this. The spark plug circuit from the distributor cap is composed of three elements The plug the plug boot and the wire. mercedes has designed the system on these engines to have a) non-resistor plugs b) a resistor in the plug boot (thats why it is so big) c) the plug wire(and terminal). The resistor in the

Well I will admit the call went the opposite way I thought it would. I assumed this would be a porno or something. It is apparently a budgeted film and the director is near insistent on maroon or maybe white exterior.

I just installed a pair of carbon fiber seat heater elements in SHMBOs Grand Prix. Draw 5 amps each set (seat bottom and back) These were customizable as far as length. I had to cut the seat bottom down quit a bit to avoid the listing velcro. The work super well. You can actually broil your biscuits. I am going to use these in my 73 when I replace the seat covers. The switches have 2 positions hi and
Hi have an 85 500SL I am sure you will enjoy the car. Re questions Central locking inoperative - pre pumped system so need to trace the leak There are many elements to test would start with the vacuum distributor located in the engine compartment rear left corner next to the the hood hinge.

Thanks for all of your help guys. I pulled the acc control unit and soldered all of the contact points. I plugged the unit back in and everything thing works.

areas perhaps I should visit. Pre owned 355 A 360 Modena. Lotus Elise yeah driven them hysterical car Un believable handling traction road holding and fast without question. If I have a question mark against them its this its a LOTUS this equates to Loads Of Trouble Usually Serious [D][D][D][D] Sadly the same can be also said of the TVR I nearly bought one of those when I was first looking at mercedes.
Jim Hansz123698 wrote Yes the advance side faces the driver. You do not need to cap the retard side but it will not hurt to do so. Rebuilding the carbs is a major undertaking for these models.
