    That's the non turbo auto.

    The non turbo manual is also rated at 19.7 seconds on the same website.

    Hi Chevy28.
    Yes I see. I did have several websites open yesterday looking for the info.
    All the info I can find today says both the Auto and the Manual do 0- 100 in 16 seconds.

    Neck snapping acceleration.

    Yeah I know. You don't really need a drink holder. It rests OK on the dash.

    Re: Timing on Mercedes engine

    Had a go at the timing this morning. Managed to loosen 2 of the IP mounting bolts but the bottom one defeated me, just could not get a spanner or socket to the head of it. Fan, fan shroud, fan belt, power steering pulley, all in the way. Looks like I need to take the radiator out. Can it be reached from below? My ramps are out on loan at the moment so couldn't try from below, doesn't look easy anyway.

    Sounds nightmarish. The lower bolt on my W123 was tough but I got it from underneath. I managed to reinstall it without raising the vehicle though. Not sure if this translates to your chassis though. My pump mounts onto studs in the engine that point to the rear of the car and you remove 3 nuts and rear bracket

    JJ, I believe it should be the same as on any of the OM60x or 66x series engines.
    On front of engine, 3 bolts around vacuum pump and one on back of IP to block. Yes, everything is in the way of it. You need to remove the serpentine belt, move the tensioner pulley out of the way and really frig around to get to a couple of them.
    They really took note of the design standards, to ensure maximum profit for the $tealer$hip$.
    I recently remove the IP from my Musso (OM662) for someone to install on a W202 250D Turbodiesel. I hope it works out well for him.

    3 bolts on the front, one at the back? Have to have look for that one. It will have to wait until I have a free day, when it's not raining or windy too. Nothing worse than working on a car when the weather is miserable.
    One advantage of such a weak motor is the economy. At just 7.5 litres per 100k my once steadily dwindling oil supply is now holding. 300ks per week at 12 l /100ks was sending me into deficit before.
