My 1980 Mercedes Benz 300SD
A wonderful chapter in the history of the automobile. My personal delight,
a 1980 W116. A car I hope will run for ever, just like the Koschel's
Mercedes. I recently got my first High Mileage award, and hope to get the
remaining awards as well. Being a very satisfied fourth time Mercedes
owner, I must say its true- Once youve followed the star, you never go
Ridiculous Autocross Run In A Mercedes 6.3
The course was set up for the Rocky Mountain Fiat Club autocross, but later
in the day I brought out the 6.3 for a few exhibition runs. The power
steering didn't want to respond to the quick left-right-left-left section
in the beginning, but it was a load of fun on the other end. Forgive the
Dukes of Hazzard treatment at the end, but it had to be done, and it was a
1994 GMC Suburban With Mercedes Benz 300SD Engine
My name is Victor, Here is a 1994 GMC Suburban 4X4 with a Mercedes-Benz
This is Diesel...In case you Didn't Know.....
The Transmission is a 700R4 from a 1992 Suburban 4X4.
It took about 2 weeks to get the adapter Plate made, used the MB
Flywheel and adapted the GM Torque converter to fit.
the engine dropped right in with lots of space to work around.
i got most everything to work on the dashboard even though the GM is
computerize...i got the temp,alt,speedo,oil pressure and gas gauge all
to work except Tack RPM....STARTED Sunday 8 0f Nov. 2009 . it took me 9
from 11am to about 6/7pm in a Storage unit! No electricity only lights
hooked from a battery. Thank God for the Good weather! Finished Tuesday
17 Nov. 2009
This was done by Myself! All Alone! the only help i got was to take the
hood off And put it back. If anyone says he or she even handed me a
tool...They are lying!!!
The truck took off like a shot...i think it pulls better than in the
car...maybe because of the larger torque converter. OH yes
and the 4X4 works!
When i made this video...There was and still lots to do...the winter came
and its to cold out, but as of today..17 feb 2010 the truck is running...i
drive it everyday..but looking forward to some warmer weather....Oh !~ and

Two things to do to get max power from the MB Motor...
Don't depend on the IP to suck fuel from the tank...it will never get
proper flow...Install a Pickup Pump!
Also don't forget to Advance the IP about a 25 cent width...or little more
if necessary .....
One more thing..DON"T RUN UVO! it will ruin the injectors.
run 50/50 Diesel and U. Transmission Fluid.
