    240 '92 245: ECU coolant temp installation torque specs

    Anyone have any info on this? My Bentley doesn't have the torque specs, neither wet nor dry, and I don't want to bugger up the threads in the head. Thanks, the Old Fart. ;-) BTW, I've been out of the loop for about a year due to various problems. Right now I'm trying to do a Stage 0 and I...

    245 tailgate harness ghetto fix

    I hope this is in the right place, so Mods, if it isn't I'm OK with moving it. Just after I bought my ?92 245 back in October ?12 the rear wiper and electric lock quit, so when we had a bit of a warm spell in early January, I thought I?d have a go at fixing it. After doing some research on...

    240 Both fuel pumps quit at the same time

    '89 244 manual no mods. I drove the car into the garage a few days back to work on the car and the next day I went to start it and it wouldn't. Battery is good, cranked well and got spark, had juice at the 25 amp main system fuse, so I gave it some ether and it fired up and ran until the ether...

    240 240 driver?s seat rails extender

    First off, I’m now about 6’?” (and sinking due to my age, but not that quick ;-) ) and I find that I need the seat on my 240s a couple of inches further back than the stock rails. I recall that the rails on the 140s I had a few decades ago had two sets of mounting holes about 1?” apart which...

    240 DLR headlight bulb question

    '92 245 M47 no mods. I'm looking to buy this car with daytime running lights and a LF low beam headlight burned out. Does anyone know if headlights with DLR use the same 2004 bulb as with non DLR as I have a few spares from my '88 and '89 244s which I could use. Also, it looks like there are...

    Well the Old Grey Mare needs a new tie rod end for the right side. I haven't yet checked out which rack I have, but right now I'd like suggestions on good quality ends, preferably those which are available in Canada. I'll probably get a left side tie rod end too as when one side goes bad the...

This problem seems to appear occasionally if the car sits for a while after being driven for about 20km or so. I?ve checked out OK everything...
