1978 to 1985 Turbo Diesel Oil Cooler Thermosat

The MOST little known and often overlooked part on the OM617 engine! And when it fails it can affect your engine cooling temp.

Even many old-time Mercedes diesel "experts" are surprised about this part. It is so unknown that it never gets replaced in the oil filter housing, meaning that almost all of them are no longer working today. Watch the video below, and Kent will explain its location and function.

6.3 V/8 Injection Pump De-Gunking and Flow Test Kit Lines and Hoses

For a 6.3 that has not run in years this is the best way to determine if the expensive injection pump is ok

Watch the video below to understand what this kit can do. Kent used it on his 6.3, which had sat outside and had not run in 18 years. The 6.3 injection pump is rare, to say the least, and can be very expensive to overhaul. Treat it with great care!


M112 V6 Complete Breather and Valve Cover Oil Leak Repair Kit w/ Video Instructions.

For all 1998 to 2006 M112 6-cylinder engines. These engines are now 20+ years old, making VC oil leaks a very common issue, and most shops don't fix them to last.

Kent and others have seen valve cover leaks return within a few years after resealing. Some feel this may be a design flaw, but I contend the job was never done right in the first place. Let Kent explain why the leaks come back...


M112 V6 M113 V8 Breather Hose Plastic Couplings x 3

These are hard plastic, and they connect your breather hoses together. Most often they can be reused.

They can often be reused if you carefully cut the hardened rubber away from the coupling. If you prefer new here you go. Three are included here and that is the total used on your V6 or V8 engine up through 2006.


M112 V6 M113 V8 Breather Hoses to Manifold Connector

1978 to 1985 5 Cylinder Diesel 75 C Thermostat for Better Cooling

Your diesel should run between 80-85C. It if runs over 95C, it is not healthy for the engine. This might cool it down 5C unless you have major problems like cylinder head crack or leaking head gasket.

This OEM thermostat from another engine fits perfectly in the OM617 diesel engine. It does require a special rubber seal, which we include here.
