    Broken drive shaft on W201

    Two questions I need answers for please: 1: I am trying to remove the flange bolts that hold the drive shaft to the diff. A T50 Torx bit is a poor fit and has slipped. A T55 torx bit is way too big. What should I be using? 2: I am struggling to find a replacement. So far my options are...

    LPG on a 190E. Anyone done it? Is it successful?

    Druk, can you drop me a mail through the Blatchat forum. I don't think you need to register to do this. http://www.blatchat.com/profile.asp?mode=display&id=11626 Cheers, Rullingen.

    Ceramic catalytic converter or Metal catalytic converter

    Thanks for the advice. :thumb: I'm a bit of a purist where my 190E is concerned. If I can replace the cat with a standard replacement for around a ton I reckon I'll probably stick with it. :) It's such a good car. At 19 years young and 125K miles I'm always amazed when I look underneath...

    Ceramic catalytic converter or Metal catalytic converter

    I'm fairly sure there is one fitted at present, so I'd never really considered removing it. if I imagine it would have some affect on the engine tuning, and emissions. It is still solid at the mo, but the heat shield has suffered from the harsh winter and I'm not sure if Mr. MOT will pick up on...

    Ceramic catalytic converter or Metal catalytic converter

    Hey, I've just been looking at the price of catalytic converters for my 190E 2.0. Cats Direct offer these two choices for my car: Ceramic catalytic converter £89.14 + vat Metal catalytic converter £242.39 + vat Do they do the same job? If they do, why would anyone go for metal...

    Brake calipers for a 1984 W201?

    None of my local factors can supply seal kits for calipers. I found a place in Worcester called Biggred <http://www.biggred.co.uk/>. They will supply the seal kit for £26.90. Which is great, but a lot more expensive than I thought it would be. The last seal kit I bought was about £7.

    LPG on a 190E. Anyone done it? Is it successful?

    Rullingen is in.... I'm in Evesham, Worcestershire. it's interesting where you say it mounts. A friend of mine who has an XJS with LPG predicted it would sit in front off the air flow meter, but I doubted this as I thought the air flow would be too slow through such a large aperture. I was...

    LPG on a 190E. Anyone done it? Is it successful?

    I would certainly be interested if the parts were fully compatible. I don't know how similar the W124 is to the W201. I suppose it depends on which engine is fitted. Does the W124 also use the K-Jetronic system? Do you know where the venturi is fitted on your system? Is it before or after the...

    LPG on a 190E. Anyone done it? Is it successful?

    If anyone has recently fitted LPG to their 190E 2.0 I'd be very interested to know how you got on, where you got the parts and if you're pleased with the result. Thanks, Rullingen.

    Brake calipers for a 1984 W201?

    Kit Where can I get the repair seal kit from? My factors are telling me I can't buy a kit any more and I have to buy a recon caliper. There's nothing wrong with it :doh: It just needs a new dust cover.:confused: Rullingen.
