These early “short style” electric fuel pumps are very prone to leaking fuel because the rubber case o-ring seals harden with age. New pumps are no longer available and rebuilt are over $1000! If you risk buying a used one it will probably end up leaking or seeping fuel too.

This is a special contact cement ideally suited for bonding foam hood pads to steel or aluminum hoods. You will receive one pint can of glue full to the brim. This is enough glue for one hood pad IF APPLIED PROPERLY!
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.
These are the style of wheels that started showing up in the very late 1960's and early 1970's. Please note size and part no. They will fit on almost any Mercedes from the early sixties up through the W123 but please make sure you want the 6" wide wheel.
This is something many owner's and mechanics miss. That little check valve on the side of the injection pump can cause a lot of starting problems on the older diesels.
Kent's personal little diesel and one of his favorites. Watch the video to see why!
This kit contains things you should have on hand when installing a new set of spark plugs in your engine. Using the right compounds and cleaning the threads in the cylinder head with assure easy removal of the plugs in the future.
The kit includes the following:
We have been looking for a long time to find a super strong and well made tool to adjust those tough 17 mm ball adjuster sockets on the early 4 and 6 clyinder gas engines.
108,000 miles and currently set up to go into a W123 - but will also fit W126 - see description
This is one of the best 2.6 engines we have seen. Have no idea what the mileage is but watch the video and you can see it is not very much. Just too clean inside. Missing only distributor cap, cap cover and starter motor. This will fit all 1988 to 1993 190E with the 6 cylinder engine.
Good runing 240D engine that was mated to an automatic transmission. Will fit later 1981 to 1983 W123. Watch video below to see and hear how this engine ran before we removed it from the car.
Does NOT include the following items:
Super running diesel engine in a damaged car with only 120,000 original miles. Engine will be sold complete except for starter motor. Air filter housing will be included. This engine will fit all W116 300SD from 1978 to 1980 without modification.
Engine is mostly complete and includes fuel injection nozzles, hoses, regulators, etc. Transmission torque converter is included. The exhaust manifolds are missing as well as the trigger points inside the distributor. No starter motor.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in purchasing this car, do not try to check out and pay for it through our website. Please email us through our Contact Us link on our website or send directly to email@example.com.
This is the same guage that we include in two other kits. See related products below. We realize some may just want a simple vacuum gauge to have in their tool box for troubleshooting purposes. A gauge like this is a "must have" if you are having vacuum related problems on your older Mercedes.
This is the little vacuum connector and plug kit Kent put together for himself inside a dedicated case because he was spending too much time running around the shop trying to find a connector or a little piece of hose anytime he was working on a vacuum system problem.
If you have ever fought spark plugs before you will REALLY appreciate this special KD socket. This is the absolute BEST 13/16 inch spark plug socket that Kent has ever used. This one will not let you down and it is not so long that you can not get into tight places.
This is a super little prying and lifting tool that you should have in your tool box. You can not believe all the things you will end up using this tool for. Pry and lift electrical plugs apart with ease. But remember it is small and for finesse work... :-)
Adding these trays to your tripod work light stand will put a real smile on your face. You can not believe how handy it is to have small parts, hardware, and tools light along side where you are working AND at waste height!
This is the next car in his collection that Kent is selling. In the past three months 5 cars have gone to new enthusiast owners.
Near new. Was mounted on the car for a few months. Some dirt spots but no nicks, chips or small cracks. Lens looks new. Does not include bulb or bulb holder.
Brand new. Does not include bulb or bulb holder. A short section of the rubber gasket got a little twisted in storage and it will need to be twisted back in place during fitment to the front fender.
Light weight easy-to-adjust tripod stand with 3 caster wheels. A 14 inch long aluminum light bar is included to install the lights of your choice. Adjusts to 7 feet in height.
If your shift lever feels loose or is rattling, that is an almost sure sign that the bushing on the transmission shifting lever has disintegrated and fallen out. This new replacement bushing is cheap, but we need to warn you about installing it.
Don't live with that brittle and flaking foam hood pad any longer. This is something you can replace yourself. Kent has done a lengthy detailed video instruction on how to get the old pad off without damaging your pad and get the new pad on STRAIGHT and without it falling off in the future.
If your shift lever feels loose or is rattling, that is an almost sure sign that the bushing on the transmission shifting lever has disintegrated and fallen out. A new replacement bushing is cheap, but just try to get one installed in the hole in the lever up along side the transmission tunnel.
If you own one of the early Mercedes overhead camshaft engines from the mid 1950's up to the mid 1970's that have mechanical (non- self adjusting) lifters this is a MUST HAVE tool!
This only fits the Garrett T3 Turbo on the OM617 and early OM603 diesel engines. Will not fit the KKK turbos. Look at the picture closely to confirm what you are purchasing.
After years of fighting pencil glow plug removal on the 1980 to 1985 OM616 and OM617 diesel engines, I finally set out to find a tool that would make is easier to remove one or more of the glow plugs with the metal fuel injector lines in place.
This simple tool set will save you much frustration and possible damage to yourself or to your ML hood. These tools allow you to remove the hood struts easily without damaging the spring clip or ball socket. Also works on many other hood and tail gate struts (like the Suburban).
Here is a wrench I should have made 15+ years ago. I can not believe how much time and frustration I would have saved over the years working on all those 100's of Mercedes diesel engines if I would have done it!
You can not believe how many W123 plugged front water drains we have seen over the years. In fact, Kent does not remember ever seeing a 123 come into the shop with totally clean and clear drains.
This clear 16 oz. bottle and hose is the safest way to test of clean your older gas and diesel injectors by not having to breathe the harmful fumes produced by the fine mist spray. NOTE: This only works for mechanical fuel injectors. It is not intended for electrically operated fuel injectors.
The FLOW or low pressure method of checking and adjusting injection pump timing does not require a separate pressure tank. With this method you use the hand primer pump to pump up pressure in the injection pump to get fuel to flow out of the half round drip tube included in this kit.
Complete new assembly with standard bulb installed. If you need 2 just change the quantity in your shopping cart
Our 129 hood pad kit includes a quality thick foam pad with sound deadening qualities, a pint of the ONLY glue that will really keep it in place, gloves, brush and complete step-by-step video instructions with many important tips to help you do the job right the first time - that means getting it
PLEASE NOTE: UPS Ground shipping only to the lower 48 states. Sorry no international. Even though this is a synthetic fluid it should be changed on high mileage wagons. I think some owners figure it will last forever.
Oil filter changes are important, but I believe on these high interval oil change schedules that changing the oil fitler can be just as important! Use the wrong filter and the engine can suffer serious damage.
Every M112 V6 I have worked on starts making front engine bearing noise around 100K. Almost like clockwork! This is a service you will want to perform whether you have had your Benz for a long time or just purchased one.
Place this small filter in the hard vacuum line running out of the back of the injection pump and going to your ignition switch under the dash. The filter will do two things. 1. Help to trap oil coming out of a leaking shutoff valve before it gets to your ignition switch. 2.
Do you ever wish the box end on your wrench was straight and not bent at an angle? That is the frustration I often have working on cars in my shop. So I made my own. They work so great I decided you should have them too!
In the three most common sizes even....
Of all the “chop cutters” I have used over the years this one is the BEST. This is must have tool for the DIY mechanic.
Of all the extractors I have used over the years, I like this one the best and I had to modify it to make is work everywhere. It is super tough, fast, and adapts to all types of automotive fluids.
In over half the motor mount bolts I have removed on the older diesel engine, I have found threads that are either stretched, galled, or stripped.
These heavily modified 10 mm combination wrenches will allow you to get under the core support (just under the hood latch) and get on the nuts to either adjust or replace the hood release cable on your older Mercedes.
This U.S.A. made 17 mm combination wrench is custom modified here in our shop to help you easily install Bilstein front and rear shocks on most of the older model Mercedes Benz.
After years of "fighting" fuse replacement, Kent finally decided he had had enough! And so is born another special tool.
This is the most thorough kit available anywhere in the world for opening up and resealing your early style (square ) SLS leveling valve. This was used on all W123 300TD wagons and a few other models during that same time period.
Why these special tools? Can't you just adjust that rod with a couple of combination open end wrenches. Maybe yes and no... have you tried it? You can not get the rod off with a regular thickness 10 mm open end wrench.
I am seeing more and more problems related to these bolts. The bolts have to come out any time you are removing the engine, changing motor mounts, or replacing oil cooler hoses on the turbo diesel models.
