OM616 and OM617 Diesel Engine Water Pump Bolt Upgrade Kit

Solve the problem of rusty pump mounting bolts once and for all - Go stainless AND seal them from inside water!

Kent finally went to work to solve the problem of rusty water pump mounting bolts. Once the problem was studied carefully the solution became obvious. Watch the video for a full explanation and partial instructions below.

Kit contents:


1978 to 1980 300SD Complete Exhaust Assembly - USED

Good condition with no holes or rust through. Can not ship.

Good used exhaust as shown in the picture. All the way from the turbo to the back of the car. This is a huge savings if you can pick it up.  I will cut it in half to be rewelded by you if you need to get it in a smaller vehicle. 


1978 to 1980 300SD Power Steering Pump - USED

Good used working condition 160,000 miles. Pulley and cap included.

Good used working power steering pump as shown. You will need a new filter (see below). We recommend the flush kit putting in the newer style power steering fluid. 

Currently out of stock.

1981 to 1984 OM617 Turbo Diesel 3/2 Valve Cover Mounting Plate, Linkage and Valves - USED

Includes all items exactly as shown. Note NO black plastic cover and screw that goes over 3/2 valves. Study picture carefully

This is a critical part of the throttle linkage and controls transmission shifting and EGR valve operation. These parts are often missing or have been all messed up. This will be a good start to get your vacuum system back in the correct working order.

Currently out of stock.

Throttle Linkage Ball Socket Service Kit with Modified Tool and Special Grease

Works on both gas and diesel engine ball socket throttle linkages from the 1950s to the mid 1990's

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.

Currently out of stock.

OM61X Pencil Glow Plug 12mm Deep Socket w/ Magnetic Universal

Magnet will hold the glow plug in socket while installing to keep from dropping behind the fuel injection pump

This toolset is super handy for installing the small style pencil glow plugs in the OM616 and OM617 engines from 1978 to 1985 ( not all). It can also be used for many other purposes.


1981 to 1985 300D 300SD 617 Turbo Rocker Arm Assemblies - USED

If you rocker arms are badly scored you will have a hard time getting the proper valve clearances

Very good used rocker arms as shown. For W123 and W126 5 cylinder turbo diesel engines. PLEASE NOTE: the bolts are NOT included ( you will see them in the picture). You will only receive the two rocker assemblies and you can use your own bolts.


W115 300D Water Pump and Water Pump Housing - USED

Only fits 1975 and 1976 300D engine in the W115 chassis

Very unique diesel water pump just for this model. Water pump is a recent replacement and in very good condition. Water pump housing good except for a few pits in the nipples - will work as is or can be filled and sanded with JB weld.


Early V8 and Diesel Engine Rotation Socket and Extension

27mm six point socket with extension just the right length to fit into the front pulleys and clear the radiator on small V8 and diesel engines up to 1985

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.


Early SLS Self Leveling Engine Driven Pump Floating Coupler

LAST ONE! This is the "cog" that drives the hydraulic suspension pump on W116, W123, W201 16V, and W126 chassis with self leveling suspension

This is the part that more often than not gets lost when the SLS pump is removed from an engine for a long period of time. If you are trying to return the system to original after someone has removed the pump you most likely will need this part.

Currently out of stock.

1969 280SE Engine for W111 W113 and W108 - Rare Find

SOLD December 2019. Going to find a new home in a W111 coupe.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not try to check out online to purchase this engine. Payment to be made with cash at the time of pickup. I have kept this engine for 12 years trying to find just the right W111 coupe or convertible or another  W113 Pagoda.


1983 240D Engine Overhaul Project - You Complete

Good block, crank, connecting rods and head with new pistons, liners, bearings and gaskets included

This is a great rebuild project if you have a later model ( 1981 to 1983 ). It would fit into the earlier models but the air compressor for the AC would be in the wrong place. If you did not need A/C just leave the pump off.  Watch the video below for more details.

In these engines these are the cheapest parts that can cause the most expensive damage! - REPLACE THEM!

You can not believe how many problems Kent has seen over the years as a result of the camshaft oiler tube falling off inside the valve cover! It is held on by inexpensive small plastic clips and guess what happens after 15 to 20 years? Yes, that is correct.

Making Certain the Turbo Inlet Elbow Seals Stay in Place - On Demand Video

WARNING: Inlet air leaks at turbo can shorten engine life! Modifying the plastic elbow assures tight seal

This is a BIG problem! Failure to fix it can shorten engine life by allowing dirt to enter the combustion chambers thus damaging the piston rings which lead to low compression, poor fuel economy, hard starting, high oil consumption and loss of power.

High Quality USA Made 5/8 Inch Spark Plug Socket and 3 Inch Extension

Superb socket gripping action and precise notches allow good lock in of the extension

I have used a ton of 5/8 inch spark plug sockets over the years but this one is the best. Primarily for two reasons: 1. The rubber holder inside the socket is twice as long and twice as strong as what is in most of the other spark plug sockets out there.  2.
