    Relocating oil filter M104 320. How to?

    Answer your email here. Every model year M103 oil filter housings are plug `n play on M104. I did use the Mocal kit shown in this topic. The sandwich plate you see in these pics on M103 housing is the original one. I did swap that with the one in the Mocal kit.

    Indeed! If you can source an early model (mine is -93) they also have under-piston oil squirters. People in the know say that Mercedes policy was to make the first versions of a model to high specs and then reduce the features in later models for cost saving purposes ;) I did not face any...

    No mods needed. You need to source the engine from right model. There are three different oil pans on M104. I believe these were the models W202, W124, W140, R129. Mine was from W124 Wagon. :j

    Thanks :thumb: Difficult to tell, I haven't had the possibility to have a look under the bonnet on a RHD car. What do you think might interfere that makes it difficult? Those two belong to my friend who I share garage with. 230 Pagoda is under technical restoration this winter. Fuel...

    Had (still have) a plan to upgrade front brakes. Did buy a pair of Focus RS 4 pot Brembos but could not fit them on the spindle with 16" wheels. Needed at least 17" the callipers not being radial mounted. I have 28x300mm vented discs from Merc W126, they fit perfectly. I'm now looking for...

    Since I'm here a may update a bit. I did test the car on Ahvenisto Circuit here in Finland last fall and found it be very quick. I thought at first I got heavy body roll and suspected something wrong with the chassis. I then swapped to 16" tires (ET23 205/55 in front and ET11 225/50 rear) and...
