Kent video instructions will take you through the process of flushing out the old automatic transmission fluid and replacing it with modern enhanced power steering fluid. This procedure was filled on a W108 280SE 6 cylinder sedan.

Get rid of that old and ineffective transmission fluid in your older power steering system. It is the number one cause of excessive gear wear in your steering box. This kit will include almost everything you will need to do this yourself, along with complete step-by-step video instructions.
This is the hose on the left side of your engine that seems to always rot and leak power steering fluid. If you look closely at it you will most likely see small cracks in the hose. This is the larger size hose used on those early models with power steering from the early 1960's through 1976.
This is the very best hose Kent has found to use to install spark plugs in restricted spaces. Watch the video below and he will demonstrate.
ONLY 2 matching wheels in this condition available. Price is for the pair. Super deal. Please do not try to order more. Great set for snow or studded tires. They were newer replacements and you can see from the picture they were not used much. No damage or bad curb scrapes.
What is the alternative? Have you ever seen silicone oil? It is not all that common but with this "kit" you can make your own and you can vary the thickness (viscosity) yourself. This is not rocket science so no extra instructions are included.
Tired of having to remove your wheels and tires to bleed your brakes? This tool makes it possible and really saves time. Watch the video below for more details and instructions on how to use it.
Only one available. Please do not try to order more than one. This is one of the best original wide 14-inch alloy wheels Kent has ever seen. The pictures tell it all.
Keeping your throttle linkage ball sockets and pivot points lubricated extends the life of the parts and maintains top performance for the engine as well as some of the later transmissions.
This video will show Kent's technique on how to prime and paint alloy wheels using our wheel paint kit and masking dam that we sell separately. See below. The techniques will also apply to any spray can paint you should choose to use.
Ever just need a small piece of good auto wire to make a repair - then run to hardware store to discover they only have lighting cord wire or you have to buy a big roll. This bag of 5 longer pieces of wire consists of different wire gauge and color. Lengths vary. All wire was removed from cars.
This is a MUST HAVE wheel care kit EVEN if you don’t work on your own Mercedes. This is one thing you must learn how to do because you can not trust tire shops anymore. See some videos below and I will explain why I feel so strongly about this.
Want the best, fastest, and easiest way to polish faded anodized aluminum trim, to remove fine scratches from your glass, to loosen rusted and stuck fittings and bolts, and to sand rust out of tight places? - enter the multitool or multi-function tool.
NO EXPEDITED SHIPPING. Please expect up to 5 working days before the unit can be shipped. We will custom assemble them upon ordering.
For a number of maintenance operations, you need to be able to turn the engine over by hand. This includes valve adjustment, timing chain replacement, injection pump timing on diesel engines, checking and setting internal engine timing, draining the torque converter, and others.
Kent has tried a lot of different tools over the years to remove body undercoating and rust in preparation for Miracle Paint rust repairs. This is his favorite, especially for small rust repairs like he will show you below:
This is a full 25-minute step-by-step instructional video on how to properly flush or bleed your brake system using our pressure brake bleeder and fluid capture tank.
If you already have a multi-function tool or you plan to buy either our glass or anodized aluminum polish kit ( see below ) you really don't need a second tool unless you want to dedicate one just for "banging" on rusty fittings and bolts. We offer this same kit with the tool included.
Kent has tried every method in the book to remove rusty and stuck fittings, bolts and nuts on older cars. This becomes a SUPER challenge when dealing with a car that has been subjected to road salt.
In this video, Kent explains the correct procedure for cleaning and lubricating your hubs and rear brake rotor BEFORE you install your wheels. He hardly ever sees this done when removing wheels on 15 plus-year-old Mercedes so he knows it is almost ALWAYS neglected.
This is probably the 12th most neglected maintenance it. In all the years of working on Mercedes, Kent has only seen this service previously done on 2 or 3 cars. Watch Kent's YouTube video below and he will explain the two benefits to doing this procedure on your own Mercedes.
This tank works amazing! Put in the heavy rear end or trans fluid. Pump up the pressure. Stick the non-fall-out end in to fill hole... and just turn on the valve.
Kent came up with this kit because of all the times he replaced e-brake shoes only to end up with battered knuckles and extreme headaches. This video is included free with the purchase of the toolkit.
This video is intended to be used as instructions when purchasing Kent's Rust Buster Tool. It can be viewed separately but you will need the tool to apply the principles. This video is included free of charge when purchasing the tool. See related products below:
Have you dreaded changing the rear end fluid before because it is a pain and ends up being really "messy?" Kent finally decided there had to be a better way so he went to work and came up with the idea of using a simple and affordable custom made pressure tank to "flush" and refill differentials
One day Kent "finally had it!" Replacing emergency brake shoes was always a dreaded job. As he thought about it he realized the frustration was mostly due to the hassle of getting all the holding springs on and off. So he set out to develop a new tool.
These are Kent's favorites. As shown in this video on youtube. Pack of 5 shipped.
Kent has found so many uses for this little brush that he can hardly count them. On the top of his list is using this brush to clean out the typical corrosion on the fuse box contacts. Watch the video and you will see what this brush is ideal.
This is not a complete instructional video on how to "overhaul" the M116 and M117 D-Jetronic fuel injected V8 distributor. There is lots of information out there on installing new points, setting the dwell and timing, replacing the cap and wires, etc.
Maybe you have even tried this only to have to patch fall on the floor when you walk away... ( it has happened to Kent... :-) ).
If you own a Mercedes with the M116 V8 engine (expect 1980 to 1982 380 engines with single low chains) timing chain failure can really ruin your day! If the engine it turning at high speed when this happens, it can destroy the engine.
If you own a Mercedes with the M117 V8 engine timing chain failure can really ruin your day! If the engine it turning at high speed when this happens, it can destroy the engine. If it happens at low speed, you may get away with removing the heads and replacing some bent valves.
Learn all the tricks to adjusting the valves on your older Mercedes V8 engine.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a complete instructional video on how to install a new timing chain in a 1970 to 1991 M116 or M117 Mercedes V8 engine. Rather it is a collection of "tips" to help you prevent running into trouble when doing this job yourself.
This is a very common replacement item on the M110 six cylinder twin cam engines. When they get hard and you try to remove the air filter housing they will break right off. Easy to replace.
In this video, Kent will walk you through some initial steps you can take to try to solve a rough running problem on an early Mercedes V8 engine with D-Jetronic fuel injection. Please note that this is an introductory troubleshooting video. It does not contain any actual repair information.
For all 3.5, 3.8, and 4.2 liter V8 engines from 1969 to 1991 280SE 3.5, 300SEL 3.5, 380SE, 380SEC, 380SEL, 380SL and 420SEL. These THREE are the upper (and easily accessible) plastic guide rails that most often break due to age and heat.
For all 4.5, 5.0 and 5.6 liter V8 engines from 1972 to 1991 (excluding the W140 500SEL).
This super fine cloth along with Miracle Paint can really do some fine rust repair detailing. You can use it on a rough pitted area that you want to smooth out. Put on a couple layers of cloth and coat with Miracle Paint. Let dry and block sand.
So you have more than one car and only want to purchase one battery tender / maintainer. You can use this high quality harness to connect to another car's battery and then just move your trickle charger between cars by easily unplugging it and plugging it back in.
This is a must-have if you have a prized Benz or any car you don't drive often!! If you let any of your cars sit for long periods ( generally over 30 days) without driving them, you can ruin your battery, especially if you let it go completely dead.
New O.E. cap as shown. Alert: These are almost out of production.
Exceptionally nice set of high-performance spark wires as shown. These should be replaced approximately every 80,000 miles for peak performance.
1972-1973 280SE 4.5
If you are a 1969 to 1991 V8 you should have some extras of these on hand. They are inexpensive and should be replaced anytime you remove your valve covers. The gaskets will keep a good seal longer than the bolt washers.
These will fit all 1977 to 1991 4.5, 3.8, 5.0 and 5.6 liter V8 engines. Do not use NGK, Platinum or any other kind of "special" spark plug. You will be sorry. Use only these Bosch Super plugs.
These will fit all 1970 to 1976 3.5 and 4.5 V8 engines with D-Jetronic fuel injection (electronic). Do not use NGK, Platinum or any other kind of "special" spark plug. You will be sorry. Use only these Bosch Super plugs.
If you intend to replace the spark plugs in your older Mercedes V8 and want to save time and frustration as well as prevent cross threading the plugs then this is the kit you need to do the job right.
One of the most often neglected easy and inexpensive maintenance items I see on gas engines. Why do people think that spark plugs will last forever or that it doesn't matter what type of plug is used! Aren' they all created equal?
