For you 124 owners cabin air filters have been somewhat of a mystery. Parts application information in many auto parts stores don't seem to be accurate and many are not even sure where they are located. Some owners may even think it is just to hard to change them.

For these old 6 cylinder gas engines of the late 80's and early 90's Kent feels this part along with the injector o-ring seals could be one of the most overlooked maintenance items on these engines.

New stiff jointed 6 sided flex socket. Has limited travel as shown which keeps it from "flopping around" in tight places.
The electrical plugs on 1995 and older Mercedes have a tendency to corrode when exposed to high moisture enviornments. When they do corrode - you will not see the corrosion - and you can end up having all kinds of weird electrical problems.
Ever wish you had an air gun that would not blow chemical cleaners all over the place when air drying critical parts prior to assembly. This could be a brake caliper rebuild, an SLS leveling valve or pump overhaul, and electric fuel pump rebuild, etc., etc.
Brand new set of TWO Sachs O.E. rear hydraulic struts. These only fit the 560SEL and 560SEC. No instructions are included for changing the struts but you will receive a free video on how to flush change the hydraulic fluid after changing the rear struts.
Hard to find an early W126 headlight assembly in this condition. It would be near perfect except for a small grey plastic tab that was broken off in shipping.

This is the repirator Kent uses in his shop when working with spray cleaners, spray can paints and fumes created by testing fuel injectors. The mask fits comfortably, seals tightly, and is light weight.
With these old gas fuel injectors, sometimes you just have to "back flush" the insides to restore them to peak performance. There is no guarantee that back flush cleaning will restore every old gasoline mechanical fuel injector. Some are just plain worn out.
Have you ever been embarrassed by opening and closing one of your car's doors? What is that annoying noise bystanders may ask?
Great price on a set of two new front brake rotors as shown. These are sold only as a set of two and do not come with installation instructions.
VERY STRAIGHT and damage free wheels with knobs to hold the small round hubcaps. This is the actual set of wheels you will receive. I also have a set of white hubcaps and beauty rings for these wheels, but I suspect they will set fast. See related products below.
EXCEPTIONALLY nice original alloy wheel set of 4 to be removed from a 1980 300SD. Curb damage is non existant with only a few very small scratches in the outer rims. Complete with center caps. No lug bolts included. Old tires will be removed from wheels to save shipping costs.
This fuel tank was installed in a W123 240D and used to hold waste cooking oil for fuel. It was used approximately 5 years before removal. It has a built in coolant based heater that can warm to vegetalbe oil from engine coolant.
This is a quality long 17mm combination wrench with a "twist." The ratcheting box end can be adjusting straight or at any combinations of angles to the right or to the left. This will allow you to get onto bolt heads or nuts in very tight places.
These are very high quality finish 13mm combination wrenches that are 8 inches long. How many times have you needed that extra reach or that extra torque! One of the most common sizes you will use on older Mercedes Benz.
Over the years I have used lots of different methods to clean off rust before applying Miracle Paint. This is the best and quickest method I have found. This is a great tool that can be used for many other things like cleaning off brake hubs and rotors.
This is such a common problem, I decided to come up with an inexpensive kit that will help you clean off any corrosion you find on your parts and seal them so they will not continue to corrode in the future.
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 130,000 original miles. The engine will be sold completely 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.
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.
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).
