    E500 - hydraulic lifters tap tap tap

    Hi all - I've just bought myself a 2002 E500. First of the W211s. 100,000 miles on the nose. Lots of history and appears to have been well cared for. On acceleration it sounds faintly clattery - think of a low pitched tappet type noise. It doesn't go away when warmed up but is not audible on...

    Tap gland/packing/sealing ring - any plumbers on here?

    Not as straightforward as it might seem, to me at least. I have a swivelling kitchen mixer tap, on which the swivelling head is secured into the body of the tap by a nylon ring/gland/packing/washer/collar :dk: which is in turn secured by a grub screw. With time, the ring etc. has worn, and the...

    tapety tap tap m103

    any advice appreciated on changing a cam lifter. Or is it really as simple as popping the old one out and pushing a new one in? I"m guessing there's more to it than that but I tried the Wyns-type treatment and it didn't work so i thought i might as well buy an aftermarket one for about 5 quid...

    Tap & Die set

    Anyone recommend a tap and die set? Bought a mid-priced set from Screwfix but it was a bit Buffalo Bill, so that's gone back. It's a minefield out there, and there's lots to choose from and prices that seem to escalate wildly. Thoughts please, from those who have a good set they'd be happy to...

    Hi all - Wondered if anyone knew of some kind of pump that would up the pressure on my outside tap ? At the moment washing the car takes forever ! I've seen a kind of in-line pump intended for use with water butts, but unsure if I could use it for another purpose. Thanks in advance
