Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Today's automotive task: Get rid of this bodgery behind the heater controls in the Caddy. https://i.ibb.co/GHswtnH/IMG-20220118-122333.jpg This is a close up of the broken bit of plastic on the back of the heater control assembly. https://i.ibb.co/ZHTkh6m/IMG-20220118-123019.jpg Which SHOULD look li...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Could you fit an aftermarket air filter to the ac? Wouldn't be hard, it's just a normal 32mm Weber carb. I've got an old cone filter in the garage which may get stuffed on there if it looks like parts might take more than a week or two to show up. Shouldn't be necessary long term though as the filt...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Didn't have a huge amount of energy available today as I'm still feeling like death from the booster jab on Friday, nevertheless I was determined to get a few things done. First up was getting the interior of the S123 back into a presentable state. Calling it clean would be overselling it, but it's ...

It's a Polo of a certain age under all of the commercial and WAV stuff, so surely there's only one thing that can be done to recolour the vehicle in a marque appropriate way: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51822491093_39f8f4446b_c.jpg Go on, you know it makes sense! 8-) You wouldn't have too m...

Re: 1986 Mercedes S123 230TE Running Project For Sale

SOLD. Well a swap agreed for another project I'd already agreed to buy actually. would that be the Vauxhall? It would. Just seemed a low-hassle solution given it was about to be bought anyway. Plus in the real world there's probably not a huge gulf in terms of the monetary value between them assumi...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Is that the 1.9 diesel engine? Its very similar to my galaxy..
Yep, the old 1.9SDi. AYQ engine code, which is a variant only used in the Caddy/Inca apparently. Not sure exactly how it differs from the ones used in passenger cars.
