1984 Mercedes-Benz 190-Series

Here's my wife's former work sedan. She Loved this car and drove it for her hospice nursing. Due to it's age repairs started being needed. It was taken to "The" Mercedes garage in Coos Bay (Metric Motorworks). About the time I thought we had run out of things to replace, he head gasket went, ust some seepage that was causing a slow leak. With so many new parts, nd expert servicing, nly made sense to do the head...alas, hen removed it had a hairline crack. So the bill was going to go much higher, o we decided to make a change. This car was never over-heated, r not had it's 3,000 mi oil changes etc. Did not use oil. Body is just about perfect. The head is off and all parts in trunk. John pointed out and was impressed seeing no ring wear and the camshaft looked great too. Some fellow pulled in front of her some time back with ensuing damage. Nothing structural or serious....as the insurance company went ahead and paid for professional repairs. Since it has sat and not been rubbed/waxed for quite sometime, here is sheen/surface condition between the new and original paint, hich the older sections just needs rubbed out and waxed and the color looks great and it really a beautiful car. NOT a rust bucket. Handles like a dream, s comfortable, ets GREAT mileage for any car, uch less a mid-size luxury sedan (37-42 MPG). Will need engine work or replacement. Here's a large portion of work done in short time span before the head gasket:
New brake rotors / New struts and bumbers / New wiper washer hose / Steering box / Fuel tank sending unit and filters-tank fully cleaned / New parking brake shoes / Seals replaced on fuel supply valves-pump / New drive belt tensioner / New glow plugs / New radiator (Right before head) / New heater blower motor / New Heater Core / New Water Pump / New Flex-disc center support / New drive shaft boot / New Front Ball Joints / New Aux fan switch / New Temperature Switches. I''m sure there's more...but that gives you a good idea of how far we went in renewing this sedan. The Michilins on it weren't very old either. I have all the invoices for the extensive work. A local fellow kept saying he wanted it. He has never came through, nd has proven to be definitely a "tire kicker". This would make a very nice keeper, ith engine repair, r one heck of a parts car for like vehicles. I will get a few pics together of the interior asap... I do remember the dash is cracked...I will update more info very soon. I just need to get this out there...it needs to go. It is not washed in pics either, aint is in excellent condition. Please read my feedback to see how I take care of business.
