MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Scared of changing camshaft sprockets

I am going to do this when I change my chain in a few days. I see that a worn sprocket basically changes from a large circle to a smaller circle over time and will effectively cause chain stretch by decreasing the overall chain path. So I now understand the importance of this job. Reading about recent situations of chains slipping position down on lower gears has me generally worried about how to keep

in EGv107 but the concern is what you do while moving from one cam sprocket to the next. Tight wire to the hood will be very helpful for this part IMO.

were to replace the gears I think I would bite the bullet and go with MB but I would make double damn sure they needed it. Something about a 20 gear bothers me. Especially if it fails and............you know the rest. Rons prices are very reasonable and you can talk to him for further info... I have no idea who makes the gears camshaft- 39.00 Chain- 109.00 Guide Kit- 85.00 Crankshaft Gear- 85.00 mercedes

Depending upon the gear manufacturer other sites beat his hands down. His may also be SWAG for all we know. The dizzy drive gear is around 400.00from MB and other sources.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Replacing a Camshaft. Do I really need to buy a Mercedes made one

As I said I need to replace my drivers side camshaft. The guys at mercedes quoted 405 for a benz made one. FEBI makes one thats roughly half that price. I know there will be purists who will say to ONLY buy MB parts. But realistically will I notice any difference in performance Has anyone had bad experiences with FEBI parts While I have the front of the car off Im going to replace the Timing Chain Guides too as I understand over time they break off and cause some nasty damage..

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 What kind of cams camshafts are in your 5.0

Bondavi brought it to my attention that I have a GTS 55 camshaft in my 78 450slc 5.0 one if the first 500 5.0 engines made. I dont know if my cams are original or replacements (and if replacements whether they are stock profiles or hotter). Id like to start by confirming whether GTS 55 cams went into ALL early 5.0 or not. Hopefully thats an easy mystery to solve. Apparently you can see the markings

What if the GTS 55 is factory casting number or some other for genuine mercedes camshafts Until we know if that is stamped on factory camshafts we cant know the answer to your earlier question. The answer to one question will help find the answer to the other. My 117.960 has its original camshafts.

When you check to see what numbers are stamped on the end of the camshaft then see if you can match them to the attached table.

Quote Originally Posted by ChiefRider Sorry but the term hot cams is just foreign to ANY SL. I recall reading something about Pearsons 560sl having cams hotter than AMG installed. So I figured it was OK to use that term even if I didnt know what it meant. Of course your post made me read up a tiny bit about camshafts on Wikipedia. I now see that grinding stock cams would only be likely to decrease

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Grooves In the camshaft

When I went looking for the source of lifter noise in my 86 560 I started on the left (passenger) side and while there is some minor looseness in the rockers the real concern is grooves on one of the cam lobes. Not sure what caused it and dont have access to what maintenance was or was not done by previous owner. No slack in the timing chain and the oiler tube was nice and clean. Plenty of oil pressure

Yep I was wrong. Should have said right side not just passenger side. OK so its new camshaft time. what supplier can I trust besides the dealer and how deep do I go to fix the problem.

Quote Originally Posted by billsfan60 OK so its new camshaft time. Probably....but you should also focus on the WHY and attend to that too. Anything wrong with a good used (compatible) cam

I guess the visions of dollar signs dancing in my head have destroyed my communication skills. The original intent was first to get to the source of the issue then determine how to both correct the problem and also prevent a repeat. This is my first go-round with a mercedes benz roadster and the lack of print shop manuals from the usual sources like Haynes scares the hell out of me. A lifetime of buying

Quote Originally Posted by billsfan60 This is my first go-round with a mercedes benz roadster and the lack of print shop manuals from the usual sources like Haynes scares the hell out of me. Well Haynes would not be your friend in this case. I have a Haynes and Chilton as a very light duty resource and for some pics etc. But the applicable MB manuals are what you want. I found my hard copies on Ebay

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 U.S. Spec Camshafts D-Jet vs. K-jet

Ok so I have to ask will K-jet (0607) camshafts work in a D-jet motor with (5253) camshafts I know there is the difference between mechanical and hydraulic lifters also camshafts with oil grooves vs. camshafts without oil grooves. You cannot mix and match the two. But lets say theoretically you could take both camshaft assemblies off of a K-jet (camshafts and Bearings) and install them on a D-jet

This sounds like a fun topic and I hope to learn something. I wonder if the w116 crowd has investigated similar stuff. Whats the goal I would think that it cant be necessity since there are plenty of engines of both types available. Have you checked the part numbers in the ECP to verify what interchanges I think the heads of a 350 d-jet are interchangeable with that of a d-jet 450. The heads are apparently

There is a thread on the 126 forum where a guy with a lot of expertise is selling a mechanical camshaft that is copied from an AMG profile. Lots of info on this subject there. They do mention that too wild of a cam will probably not get along with the MB air metering system (not a surprise). But no cam that is AFAIK available on the market is too wild. I definitely dont think that you can mix hydraulic

Ive read through 48hps thread discussing the AMG grinds that hes been able to copy and its a very interesting read. It confirms that the swap from a hydraulic lifter to a solid mechanical lifter is possible and that you can run a wilder cam. This is something that AMG was doing years ago to the 5.0. This modification today is generally done to either the 5.0 or 5.6 which although uses different cylinder

MERCEDES BENZ SL R129 1995 SL320 Camshaft adjuster magnet on a M104.991 engine

Hi all I have questions on my SL320 camshaft adjuster magnet. 1. The connector to it has 14V all the time is it normal 2. I dont feel or hear any noise from it when I connect it and rise the rmp to more than 3.5K is it stuck and not working anymore 3. I had disconnected it and does not feel any change in driving performance. 4. Can I just buy another new one and replace it what are the steps Thank you and appreciate any help. Cheers

Sorry I am not talking about the camshaft position sensor. I am talking about the camshaft adjuster magnet my SL320 has one in the front of the engine. I guess SL500 might have 2. My orginial post title was changed pls help to change back to camshaft adjuster magnet. Thanks.

Quote Originally Posted by kevin2010 how can I check if the camshaft adjuster is working fine Also according to the document provided by lynns the timing should be in retarded from 0 to 2000 rpm and the solenoid should has no voltage to it but my has 14V all the time. I just looked at it again and yes there is a problem with the voltage thing to check the camshaft adjuster would mean removing the timing

I found out that I have 2 exactly same connectors in the harness which can be connected to the camshaft servo magnet. Rightnow the one with 12-14V all the time is connecting to the magnet and another one with no voltage is left out connecting nothing. Also can I just removing those screws and take the camshaft servo magnet out for inspecting the camshaft adjuster and the magnet Will I need any gasket or some sort to reinstall it back Thanks.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 What are the camshaft oilers and why do they need replacing

In researching timing chain issues Ive been told to replace the camshaft oilers. Seeing them in on-line catalogs they just look like aluminum tubes. Heres my questions Are they just aluminum tubes If so why do they cost 100 each (I know its an MB but thats about the most expensive part on the job) Do I need one or two How exactly do aluminum tubes wear out Any advice is appreciated

Its not the tubes that are the problem unless someone bent them while doing a valve adjustment. The problem is the cheap crummy plastic fittings that attach the tubes to the camshaft towers. Alot of M117 cams have gone to an early grave because these fittings come loose and cause oil starvation. Never reuse the plastic fittings and make sure each one is fully but lightly driven into place. The tubes

Good stuff to know I just ordered a two sets of the plastic cam oiler fittings and will be cleaning the oiling tube when they go in. Reminds me of my E420 which developed a nasty tapping sound which turned out to be from a failed camshaft oiler. Lucky for me at 99.5K miles the car was still barely within MBZs 100K mile extended warranty so the dealer in Oakland CA (very) begrudgingly fixed it for free.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 85 380SL Camshaft Timing

I just bought a 85 380SL. It blows white smoke (sometime with some bluegrey color) with a heavy gas smell. I pulled out all the spark plugs and found the 4 spark plug (the one on the the passenger side close to windshield) is oily and dirty. So I opened the valve cover on the passenger side to replace valve stem seals on the 4 cylinder. Turns out the seals are new. So the seals seem not causing the

Hi thanks for your explanation Just checked the prices of the magnets again. 20 at mercedes Parts - Get mercedes Parts at Wholesale Prices or 36 at the MB dealership. Thinking about just replacing all 4 magnets myself. The dealer might give me a discount on replacing the one that brings up the error but will probably not replace the other 3 for free then. Anybody here having some experience in replacing

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Camshaft Replaced Today

Just got done a while ago replacing my right camshaft and followers. Everything went pretty smooth and I got lucky didnt strip any threads in the block when I put the cam bearing towers back in. My cheap spring compressor worked good. The M117 engine is definitely an interference engine and a close one at that. When I turned it over by hand it suddenly stopped one of the followers wasnt engaged in

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 OK Camshaft Experts....

I have a 1972 350SL - Engine 117982-12-002315 a M117.982 engine obviously. 1972SL350 and I opened up the engine to inspect things after my road trip and found a big chip out of one cam lobe and notable wear on a lobe on the other cam. So it is cam replacement or rebuild time. Bearings and journals generally look almost as new. My understanding is that this engine is supposed to have camshaft codes
