Hi Folks ,
Im new to 190 ownership and am trying to get my car running sweeter .

I have recently acquired a nice 1990 190 carburetor. It has one problem. Occasionally it will cut out or stall when running (usually at speed) and then refuse to re-start for a minute or so.
I have traced the problem to the shut off system. If I disconnect the electrical feed...

I have a 190 carburettor manual model.
The engine is not idling smoothly and is fairly lumpy.
When I accelerate hard sometimes it gives a few misses then takes off.
I have to date had the carb overhauled, replaced plugs, plug leads, distributor cap, engine mountings (thought it might be...

Engine timing and valve timing are ok.Vacuum advance unit in distributor does not leak.Diff ratio is correct.Went through the whole car but cannot find anything wrong.

Hi I hope someone can help me with this.
My 1988 190 is running sweet, but is running too rich, causing the emmissions to show as around 7 ( whatever you call its ) rather than the 3.5 the MOT man requires.
I am wasting petrol , which at current prices is just daft, and obviously killing the...
This is odd. The ABS is not working, but the ABS light goes out when started and will only light up when the side/head lamps are on!!!
Is this some sort of MB clue as to what might be wrong?
All opinions gratefully received.
More questions for you ...
I have just pulled apart a Stromberg 175 CD carb and the Haynes manual says the float level should be 18-19mm. Does anyone know where to measure this from?
I have a Stromberg 175CD (Pierberg) carb on a 190 2.0 (201). Has anyone got a repair manual for this carb. The Haynes manual is a little lean on information and only does half of it anyway. I have always had trouble with the idelling on this car and have replaced the diaphragm etc and it...
Hope you all enjoying the sun (where it is shining) and the easter weekend!

I am not that mechanically minded but is this something I can do or...
Just in the process of stripping this carb down as it has been spewing out fuel when really cold. So rather than just strip down / clean / put back together I thought why not refurb it with an overhaul kit, so.............anyone have the Part Number for this item? Many thanks in advance.
My 1988 (auto) carb (pieburg) has taken to dying when its cold, not all the time but more often than not, it starts fine but you get a bout 1-2 miles down the road and the engine just dies. It will fire again but then, almost immediattly dies, theres nothing I can do to prevent it either...
Hi all I have a Mercedes 190 carb D (1987)

Other than a Merc garage, is there anywhere that would sell them and what sort of...
Well after i have completely reconditioned the carb, its not running that much better than before! After speaking to some 123 experts, they reckon if i can get my carb to set correctly with my 115 engine, ill be the first in the country!
Anyway, i have another related problem...
