hello all, ive noticed an accumulation of engine oil around the bottom of the bellhousing on the cls55, doesnt seem to be coming from top of engine, when i removed the black blanking plate on the bottom of the bellhousing, there was some engine oil in there too.
At this point, im considering...
What spark plugs are you using in your M113 engines? I have been on the NGK website and they have 2 options.....
Recommended - PFR5G-11
Upgrade - BKR5EIX-11
Not a lot of difference in price. This is for my 2004 R230 SL500.
I don't suppose anyone has managed to remove the timing case cover of an M113 5.0 whilst its still in the car, without removing the front end of the car?
It's a w163 ML 500. Both head gaskets changed but think it's skipped a tooth and the only way I can see of timing this engine properly is...
I want to install a M113 5.0 (306bhp) engine into a ac cobra replica.
I've tried to pm carat 3.6 but as a new member I'm not allowed. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction.
I'd also want to bolt it to an appropriate gearbox
Just about to order 1 of these kits.
Wanted to know if there is a huge difference in who makes them ? Anyone used a non UPD kit? There is a good £200 difference in price. is it just a name thing. Has there been any known failures with the cheaper kits..?
Looking forward to make some mods like camshafts upgrade, headers and remapping on my w208 clk55.
Checked the kleeman camshafts and it looks like after the upgrade they giving the same power increase as the power difference between older version and the newer version of m113. Where the...
Just some random musings, as I've happened to stumble across a C124 without an engine and a 4.3 M113 (and g'box/ancillaries - from S430).
Unfortunately, I can't get both in the same place at the same time (being heavy and non-moving) to even check the size logistics of mating them. However...
MERCEDES W220 / W215 M113 Engine Service
I serviced my engine today, changing the Spark Plugs, Engine Oil, Oil Filter and Air Filters.
With the engine warmed, I opened and removed the oil filter on the top front of the engine then raised the car on a ramp, removed the engine underside panel...
Something i learnt today,
I thought a 211 e500 was a m119 quad cam engine, same as a r129. Didn't actually realise it was a m113.
So what's the difference between a 211 e500 / e55 other than the charger and the extra displacement? enginewise or is it just that?
Also did/has anyone...
Hi guys - not posted too much here before but would really appreciate some help.
I cleaned the MAF this morning on my 55 and as I was putting the engine cover back on I noticed one of the pipes leading into the top of the right hand engine head had a cable tie round the entry point. I looked...
