These early “short style” electric fuel pumps are very prone to leaking fuel because the rubber lower case seals harden with age. New pumps are $650 to $750 and if you risk buying a used one it will probably ending up leaking or seeping fuel too.
Kent has never seen fresh fuel hoses on all the old MFI Mercedes he has worked on over the years. They only seem to get changed when they start leaking. Leaking fuel hoses at the electric fuel pump is a fire hazard!
Leaking fuel injector pumps have become a very common problem in the 60x. engines produced from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s. The early 60x.
Most owners do not have a big enough hex wrench to remove the fuel tank screen on those models that had the fuel tank right under the rear trunk floor. But the screen does need to be removed, inspected and cleaned due to the age of these cars.
Another great solution from Mercedessource!
A broken radiator neck can be safely repaired if it breaks off cleanly in the center or aft of the center of the neck. If it breaks off too close to the tank or breaks off in multiple small pieces then we advise that you replace the radiator.
This is the easiest and most affordable solution for replacing a deteriorated hood pad on the 190E and 190D. The pad will fit all models but will not look the same as the original on the later models like the 2.6. The OE pad for the later models costs between $200 and $250.
Our fuel injector testing kits are available separately for Bosch mechanical gas fuel injectors, Bosch C.I.S. gas fuel injectors, and Bosch mechanical diesel fuel injectors.
Have you ever tried to mask off your tires with paper and tape before painting the wheels? If you have I am sure you are laughing right now. Doesn't work too hot...Hard to get any tape to stick to the rubber tire.
Good used leveling valve and bracket as shown. This one is one of the better ones we have seen. It came off a 300TD with only 96,000 miles. You can tell it does not have the typical corrosion, etc. Kent has taken this apart in his shop, clean and inspected in and installed all new o-ring seals.
Distributor neglect is one of the most common neglected maintenance items that we see on the 6 cylinder 103 engine. Just because the engine is running ok does not mean that the parts are not worn out. One day you will get up in the morning and the engine will not start.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a wiring kit ONLY. You will need special FAST glow plugs and glow plug wires to complete a successful installation. This kit will not work with your orginal lopped-end series glow plugs.
This manual is not perfect but it is the best aftermarket manual available. A little tattered but remember you are working on a diesel...
This is a must have if you own an older turbo 300D 300TD 300CD or 300SD. Full of very valuable info. No longer in print and hard to find. This is the factory dealer workshop full engine service manual.
Passenger front regulator. Like new in perfect working condition. You will need to bolt on your existing working motor. A recent replacement.
Please note I can not guarantee that all gaskets originally with the set are there. It has been opened. Please look at picture carefully. What you see is what you get. Please make certain this fits your later 189 engine.
If your modulator is working ok, but leaking transmission fluid, you may only need to replace the inexpensive oring ( o ring ). You do have to be careful when removing the modulator from the transmission. For instructions (available separately) see related products below.
If you drive hard and do a lot of heavy breaking your front wheel bearings should be packed with this grease! Also good for chassis, suspension, cv and universal joints. Made by Valvoline.
Good used working power window regulator as shown. Slightly bent frame but still working ok. IF you lube this real well and use with care should last for a long time. These are getting very hard to find for the early 123’s. You should pick up one for a spare.

Good used working power window regulator as shown. Pretty straight with minimal teeth wear. These are getting very hard to find for the early 123’s. You should pick up one for a spare. This will NOT fit the 300CD or 280CE coupes.
This is a high quality stainless liquid filled pressure guage. It is the same gauge that comes with our diesel fuel injector bench mount pressure tester. If you have purchased one of our early CIS testers or MFI testers for gasoline fuel injectors, this is an inexpensive upgrade path.
Kent put together this little tool and supplies kit that will really help you if you should decide to rebuild your brake calipers yourself. Some of the older style calipers are getting harder to get and rebuilts are no longer available.
This is the standard 14 mm long pan plug used on many engines with aluminum pans from the mid 1980's on. Before ordering make certain you have this type of pan plug. This engine oil drain plug can help extend the life of your old diesel engine.
Kent believes this is the best protection you can give your rear end. Since there is no filter there for the fluid, nothing other than this super strong magnetic drain plug can keep metal particles from working their way back up into the bearings and gears.
Sold in a set of four. These have to be the strongest magnets in the World! You do not put them inside the pan. Rather you spread them out on the outside bottom of the transmission pan as shown in the picture below. Talk about an easy install! You don't even need to jack the car up!
If your key is stuck or sticking we recommend you consider buying a new steering lock and key w/tumbler assembly to solve the problem completely.
If you own one of our injector pressure testers here is a great add on that will allow you to use the tester to remove stuck pistons from old brake calipers. Once you get the pistons out, most calipers are rebuildable with an inexpensive reseal kit.
This green colored grease is specially formulated to work on any Mercedes from wheel bearing. Comes in a tube that is enough to do two front wheel bearings and inside hubs. If you drive at high speeds this is your best grease to prevent bearings from overheating.
6 high quality Bosch glow plugs with Special carbon reamer included. This reamer should always be used to ream out the glow plug holes when changing your plugs to improve efficiency and glow plug life.
6 high quality Monark glow plugs that are still made in Germany! Special carbon reamer included. This reamer should always be used to ream out the glow plug holes when changing your plugs to improve efficiency and glow plug life.
Keeping your throttle linkage ball sockets and pivot point lubricate extends the life of the parts and maintains top performance for the engine as well as some of the later transmissions.

Here is a great pad at a great price. These are the front brake pads Kent uses on most of his older Benz. We are offering at a special price without extras. Note the set only comes with one sensor wire. This is like a spare if one breaks when you are installing the new pads.
