    You aren’t an idiot. An idiot would have trashed the good pump. You repeatedly tested your theory until it failed. That’s good science.

    It’s a looker. I could stare at that in my garage or at a car show.

    The black/woodgrain/Cabernet reminds me of a 1950’s boat.

    Any idea why the seals bit the dust? From the additional valve movement?

    Still doesn’t sound like a walk in the park. I am betting you are one of the few Mercedes owners who do their own fixing.

    I did use the rope this time. Had no choice really since they wouldnít hold air before. It was a little more tedious because the valve fell a little bit, but very doable. Those black plastic...

    Success and a big sigh of relief.

    Valves are seating well now. They were very free to move up and down. They just needed spun in the seats. Used some tape on the valve stem and a little spin...

    Thought about doing a leak down test but I don't think it would tell me anything I don't already know.

    I had some improvement on the worst two cylinders by tapping on the valves.

    Had a little discouraging garage session tonight. Went to put valve seals in using the compressed air method of holding the valves up. Two cylinders hold air pretty well. The others leak bad. Some...

    Indeed. At least it doesnít say lose, so there is that.

    This is a Friday the 13th engine. November 13, 1987. It has the steel timing gear for reference.

    Glad you can use it. Or try to. Hopefully the seller comes through on shipping it out. I have had a few cancel the order once they find out “free” shipping is free for the buyer but costs the seller!

    Forgot to add this was from an 88 5.0. I’d assume 80-91 5.0 is pretty similar.

    BTW this engine was assembled on 11/13/87 per the valve cover. Yes that’s Friday the 13th.
