Russell's Review of the Nitrile Mechanics Gloves :

These gloves are fantastic!  I use LOTS of these working on any car repair or project.  If you are sick and tired of getting black oil, grease, dirt or any other yuck on your hands, then these are a must have in your tool box.  I have used Nitrile gloves for years.  Superior to Latex gloves especially if you are alergic to latex.  Powder free, thick enough not to tear and thin enough to handle even the smallest nut or bolt you may want to hold.  I use them everyday and my hands thank me!

One size fits all.

Russell's Review of the Diesel Thermostat Kit :

This is another one of those maintenance items that I recommend to be done every time you flush your coolant. A sticking or malfunctioning thermostat has the potential to overheat your engine or not allow it to get warm enough.  Why take a chance on a cheap part ruining your car.  I recommend changing the thermostat every 2 years when you change your coolant.

Price: $165.00
Qty:

 

Product Description:

  A cold engine does not start at its best!  Don't wait till it gets cold to install this block and coolant heater.  Gently heats the engine  for a quick start-up on those cold mornings.  Made of a heavy duty element and electrically grounded for safety.  Those cars running on WVO or Veggie really need a good block heater to reduce the time you have to run on petroleum.   A warm engine reduces wear on rings and valve train components.  Also a reduction in start-up emissions with a warm engine will result.  Reduce smoke and decrease the time it takes to achieve full oil pressure at idle.  Great for engines with high miles or lower than normal compression.  Helps them start MUCH more quickly and reduces glow plug system and battery wear.   This kit will fit all 123, 126 body Mercedes with the 4 or 5 cylinder engine to 1985. Please give year, make model and VIN # when ordering so we get you the proper kit.

Order the block heater and DIY DVD install combo below. This is not for Sprinter vans.

See below for W 116 body cars.

Russell's Review of the Block Heater Kit :

Well having a "senior" '79 300d that does not have 'like new" compression, I love the quick starts I get on a chilly morning.  To be frank, I plug the old '79 in every night, even in the summer.  Having a good block heater really help the old car start with a minimum of complaints.  Having the engine warm when you go to start, makes a dramatic decrease in wear since there is less thermal expansion that must take place, compared to a stone cold engine.  Also if your engine did not come with a factory block heater, then you are looking at a real job installing one.  Since these engines are nearly 20 years old, trying to remove the block heater plug, can require a torch and a 5 foot breaker bar.  The cast iron plug on most engines (especially up North) is rusted on the threads, making it VERY difficult to remove.   You also run the risk, although small, of cracking the block trying to remove that darn cast iron plug.  My block heater is designed to fit in the lower radiator hose, just like heavy duty construction equipment.  I have already installed the heater into the brand new hose for you, just remove your old hose, and install the new one.  Having the heater installed in the hose and not the block, takes advantage of the insulating properties of the hose.  That means more of the heat of the unit will transfer to the ENTIRE cooling system.  Since the factory heater is installed in the block, there is a slight thermal conductive cooling loss on the element itself.

The Block Heater Kit includes:

  • One (1) New correct metric German Lower hose 

  • One (1) Lower hose block heater with 3 prong grounded plug

  • The above assembly is pre installed for you

Russell's Review of the Block Heater Cord:

Worn, torn, frayed or missing block heater cords do no one any good.  Revive your cold start ability with a working block heater.  This cord plugs into the factory block heater and is a 3 prong ground unit.  Replace the factory unit perfectly.

 

The Block Heater Cord includes:

  • One (1) block heater cord.

  • Phone access to me if you have any questions.

Russell's Review of the Radiator Fan Shroud:

The cooling systems depends on moving the air at a certain volume and velocity across the radiator.  The fan shroud directs the air and keeps its velocity constant for optimum cooling.  If its missing or damaged your cooling system will not cool properly.  Cheap to buy and even easier to install.  Keep your cool with a proper fan shroud.

Russell's Review of the Climate Control Servo:

 

Here is a real Mercedes debacle.  This system is plagued with faults and always ends up failing.  The main servo unit located in the engine compartment on the passenger side, controls the hot water flow to the heater core.  This Upgrade kit is designed to upgrade the unreliable analog and mechanical climate control system to modern digital microprocessor technology. This upgrade involves removing the OEM servo and amplifier. These are replaced with rugged industrial strength solenoid valves and a proprietary controller module.  Made by unwiredtools and warranted for 5 years.  Buying the original from Mercedes is over $1800 and will still eventually fail.

Chrysler designed and dumped this system due to problems in the late '70's and Mercedes started to use it in their cars.

 

The Climate Control Servo contains:

  • One (1) climate control servo system.

Please make sure you order the correct fan clutch.  Your car should fall under one of the 3 areas to the left.

 

 

Russell's Review of the Fan Clutch:

 

A sure fire way to have your Mercedes diesel overheat is to have a bad fan clutch.  The clutch is supposed to lock up to engine speed when the temp gets to a certain degree.  A bad fan clutch will have your car running hot at idle and low speed driving.  Can also cause the A.C. to not cool properly.  A defective fan clutch will NOT make the car run hot at highway speeds.  More than a few engines have been ruined by a defective fan clutch.  If in doubt replace it before its too late.

 

The Fan Clutch contains:

  • One (1) fan clutch.

Russell's Review of the Electric Fan Retrofit Kit:

 

A sure fire way to have your Mercedes diesel overheat is to have a bad fan clutch.  In lew of the factory set-up install the electric fan kit.  Looks like it was supposed to be there 20 years ago.  Quite and should save you $$ in smoother engine operation and fuel economy.  Plus you will have a much quicker warm up time the cold weather.  Look at my pictorial on the maintenance page for install directions.  Easy to do! I have this fan kit on my 1981 300d and it works great!

Russell's Review of the Coolant Bypass Hose Kit:

 

This is the hose that always goes bad at the worse time.  The bypass hose is constantly getting oil on it if you have a valve cover or other oil leak.  The oil softens it and then it fails.  Attaches to the thermostat housing bottom.  Comes with a thermostat housing gasket also as this must be loosened from the engine to replace the hose.  This is the correct German spec hose with the proper wall thickness and diameter.

 

The Coolant Bypass Hose Kit contains:

  • One (1) bypass hose.

  • One (1) thermostat housing gasket.
