    Black death

    I have a 53 C220 CDI with leaky injectors. The injector seats need to be recut but i'm not sure if this engine has flat seats or are angled. The cleaning/cutting kits on ebay contain both types so is there a definate way of finding out what type I have.

    Black death

    [/URL][/IMG] This is a Mercedes sprinter with 122,000 miles on it. And the owner said he could not smell anything wrong trust me it stank of burning diesel from 20 feet away and surprisingly there was no usual chuffing noise from it. But definitely the worst black death I have seen.
