Rebuilding the Self-Leveling System Pump in a W126 Mercedes
A Powerpoint video of the steps and parts needed to rebuild the SLS pump on a W126 Mercedes Benz. Would also apply to some W123 models such as the 300TD and the W124 300TE. The reseal kit (MB part number 900 230 0064) is not complete in that you will need two other viton O-rings for a thorough reseal job. New pumps are over $1000; I spent about $18 and about two hours total time...

LeMons Car Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Sept. 24, 2011)
I attended the 24 Hours of LeMons race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sept. 24, 2011, and had a lot of fun. I recorded hours and hours of video, but boiled it down into this 5.5-minute video. I was there to watch my brother (Joe Kovacs), who raced in the #71 car (a 1985 Mazda RX7), so there is a bit of a focus on that car. However, I think it does a decent job of giving the general flavor of the race.
I shot this with a Canon Vixia HF-S30 camcorder and used a GoPro HD Hero for the on-car shots. I edited it with Corel Video Studio Pro x4 and did the whole project in the AVCHD format.
