    Re: OWNER - nocfn

    So the C126 gave me an eventful few days. We had a 5" deluge over 24 hours here in Houston the other day, and was very happy that I resealed the windscreen earlier this year. So the day after, parking the car outside during the rain, I found some wet backseat carpet on the low spot: where the seat bolts to the floor. After extracting the water with the shop vac (not standing water, just wet) I began to investigate. Front drains in cowl CLEAN. Hole in the A Pillar None found. Poured 4 gallons of water - no leaks. A very good sign as I work diligently to mitigate these areas.

    So I removed the front DS carpet and the foam rubber is very heavy so I knew exactly what it was. I turned the ACC on and turned the heater to full heat. As the AC came on, squeezing the water from the air, it drained right out of my new evaporator onto the floor pan. Removed the vertical carpet on the left side and the culprit was confirmed. The hose popped off its nipple for the drain to the transmission tunnel. So I reattached the hose to the drain box and used a zip-tie to keep the hose firmly attached. It must have been disturbed during my rebuild and I must have not secured it properly. Either way, the heat of the summer took care of any fluid but recent highs in the 62-70F range and ACC running gave me the moisture. So I cleaned the old asbestos fire and sound deadening materials, treated the floorpan with rust relief paint as a precaution, and laid a layer of dynamat in the floor pan. Testing the AC after all was put back together provided a steady release of condensation out both sides of the tunnel drains to the ground below. Good for my annual safety inspection on Friday by the state. I also had a chance to clean my dead foot pedal, and repaint it to refresh and match the rest of the car.

    Had a sporadic idle on the coupe, so I went at the spark plug wires. Luckily the suppressor at #1, upon turning the wire to ensure it was tight....it broke off. So it was broken and that was my issue. Since all of them fit rather loosely on the plugs, I just changed out all of them and replaced the wire for #1 as well. Smooth idle now and I suspect better fuel economy. I usually get 225-240 per tank, I only got 200 on this tank with 7 cylinders firing. Merry Christmas

    You should be getting 300+ per tank if you drive to when the yellow light goes on plus another 10-15 miles.

    I go 270-285 miles per tank when the yellow light comes on. Then drive another 10-20 miles and Im at 300+.

    Id say usually averages about 12.5-15 MPG depending on whether you do more city or highway driving.

    My Fuelly.com averages show 12+ years worth of 560SEC MPG.

    14 MPG x 22 gallons = 308 miles. Its a 24 gallon (90-liter) tank.

    Well two things - I stop at 19 gallons added when tank light comes on. I have usually just filled it up at 225-230. Most of my driving has been lead foot moving thru the gears for my city driving, and its aggressive!

    Which reminds me, last week I installed a NOS from a parts car. I also cleaned the donor unit and applied new lube. I followed the Honch How - To, the unit was identical.

    A PSA of sorts for everyone. I recently had the pleasure of showing off my cars to my Dad as he visited me from Ohio. Dad is a wrencher, worked on a drag racing pit crew when I was a kid in the summers. Anyway while showing off my cars, we were on to the E500 and I noticed exposed wires on the new harness I installed several months ago. The ETA harness was laying on top of my lower harness coming out of the clam shell. The rubbing opened up the sheathing but not the insulation of the wires. I was going to reroute the ETA harness under since there is plenty of slack when I found the issue. The nut holding the support bracket was about 3 turns loose. Problem solved.

    Check your bracket at the ETA plug support. Mine was not vertical, so the harness rubbed one another.
