    Craigslist: Tool Box full of Specialty Mercedes Tools

    Found this last night while searching for a new Tool Cabinet. Thought someone here might be interested in a set of Merc Speciality Tools. (make sure to see pics of each drawer's contents at link)

    https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/tls...454158326.html

    Tool Box full of Specialty Mercedes Tools, Sold as Crossfire Specialty - $2800 (sunnyvale)

    This is a Rare Opportunity to Acquire a complete Specialized Tool box full of MERCEDES Specialty Tools. (At that time Mercedes purchased the Dodge Vehicle line and the Dodge dealers needed the Mercedes tools to service the Crossfire (This was essentially a Modified Mercedes) This tool box was the answer to get the Dodge dealers up to speed on servicing and repairing the Mercedes Crossfire.
    Most the tools are accounted for. Comes with a Valve Adjustment Tool along with several other pullers and seal tools.
    Also has the Suspension spring compressor tool.
    Will Not ship.
    Asking $2,800.00
    Thanks for Looking.

    call or text Ralph: ☎ (650) 279-6006

    Moderators: Please feel free to move this post. I wasn't sure If I should place in the Tools or For Sale categories.

    Several tools are missing from this kit, and a few of the missing tools are desirable items. The two tie-rod poppers are both excellent, one works well for front tie rods, the compact one works nicely in the rear. Radio keys are missing, flywheel lock (M112/M113) missing, W210 coolant reservoir test adapter missing. Several of the items are useful for the 124 chassis including the Klann coil spring compressor, rear wheel bearing installation tool, Sportline rear subframe bushing installer, steering box seal installer, transmission front seal installer, and a couple other bits. Much of the rest will work nicely on the M112/M113 or Crossfire, or possibly SLK. I bought this same toolbox, fully loaded, something like 10 years ago so I'm familiar with the contents.

    For closer to $1k it's still not a bad deal even with the missing items, but the current asking price ($3k!) is shooting for the moon IMO.
