MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Cylinder Head Gasket removal procedures (warning for 56K)

Ok Here is the removal procedure for a 1998 slk 230 Kompressor head gasket. I want ANY and ALL comments no matter how small or demeaning -) httpwww.kokes.netslkEngine_head...ead_remove.htm I know that spalling is bad but I was trying to get this up as fast as possible. Please let me know .. Be warned its about 30 pictures... Cheers -Ben

Blown gasket The only time I have seen a blown one was with the 73 Bronco and it had busted between cylinder 7 and 8. I didnt know something like this would cause a coolant leak into the cylinder. I did change the coolant to the orange stuff by prestone that was supposed to be approved by GM for their aluminum engines. No more orange crap for me Only MB coolant from now on.

it DOES run better but mostly because I am extracting more power from cylinder 4. more compression and a more complete burn on account of it not mixing in the coolant with the air and fuel.. That IS the original chain. Let this be a lesson to you boys and girls that changing your oil every 5k miles is a good idea. I was actually the most surprised by the fact that the factory machining marks from the cylinder honing were still present on the sides of the cylinders... wow

Thanks Bruce I had already saved and printed the entire page with all the graphs... GREAT visuals and step-by-step instructions. I just need the actual torque settings for the torque wrench when tightening the head bolts... Anyone has the correct numbers Thanks...

The search is your friend head bolt torque question -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- heres what the pdf manual says- tighten cylinder head bolts in stages in the order of the tightening diagram beginning with 1. 1st tightening state 55 Nm 2nd tightening stage 90 angle of rotation 3rd tightening stage 90 angle of rotation so my question is twofold- - those

Turning the bolts a given amount is not unheard of although its not a real common practice in the automotive arena. We are very used to seeing torque numbers but there are some real variables with that method as well like what lubrication and how much.... If it gives a torque number just to get it snug that should work just fine and just for the record even if you go by torque settings you should replace
