    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    Hey there people


    I finally sorted my photobucket out..still not working as it should..but at least i figured out how to upload in another way than usual


    Here is some updates on the ongoing "front wheel tub modification...AND upgrading to EVO reservoars, on my 190e 2.5-16 "Evo" ....aka the Evoltwin


    Alot of work whent into the modifiying...and the ABS bracket was no exception.I think it was in and out of the car like 50 times..to get the height right..and the shape of it ..so it would fit the new wheel tub.
    But anyways..here is some pics
    Abs bracket modification.



    Put rust prohibitor stuff on.Permatex...the black stuff.preeettyy good stuff this.



    trial fitting the EVO expansion reservoar



    making a new bracket for the new EVO washer fluid tank.NOT exactly the same as on the original evo..as my tubs are not 100percent alike



    Trial fitted ALL tanks..and i have to say im reaaaallly happy with the look now



    out with all the tanks..and put 2k Epoxy primer on,also on the inside of the wheel housing..but no pics of that



    Body sealant put on.just have to smooth it out abit before painting.



    And i also received my new Carbon fibre mirrors...DTM style..and i had to put em on.there was some epoxy mouting plates..which i had to modify..cause i wanted to have a plate fitted in the recess where the original mirror sits...but i was unlucky and the plate i made..broke..when tightening the screws...so i will have to make a new one ..in aluminium..i guess


    Here is the mirrors in all their glory



    Mounted.and im ooooh so happy





    Hope you liked havin a look at the latest progress.cheers

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    hey people
    Here is a little/Big update on the progress in the resto of my EvoLTwin
    i know some of you have seen it ,because of it beeing put out on my facebook page.and some facebook groups...
    So thats a shame.as updates should come out here on the forums before facebook.but anyways..here it is


    I have completed the work on modifying the front wheel tubs on my car..and i have upgraded the engine bay closer to EVO spec..and i have to say im pretty happy bout the result...even though ...all stuff can and could have been better..but all things considered..i am straight up satisfied with the work i have done.


    Here is some different shots of the engine bay..and ..i hope you like it .cheers























    New washer pump location



    Made a bracket to hold down the new washer tank...but will re do the bracket,Lower the fastening point..and weld on a pinbolt....so i can fit my newly aqquired original fitting nut ..to hold the fastening bracket onto the reservoar..but for now..this solution looks pretty decent i think








    Just try to do something different...picture in the dark..with flash on






    Finally in all its glory ,just sitting there and happy beeing done at the doctors





    Hope you liked it

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    Hey people
    A little update on the EvolTwin
    I have finally got to replace the 1st/Reverse shifter arm on my gearbox.The splines inside the arm was worn out..so there was alot of play in it.So luckily the part was still available..i know that the 2/3rd shifter arm is NOT available anymore.
    Here is some pics
    New and old



    If you study it closely..you can see on the one to the left...which is the old arm...that it has alot more wear..and it didnt take more wear than that to make it inaccurate..the arm was actually LOOSE on the shaft on the gearbox



    Lubed it up with anti friction grease






    Fitted pretty tight space.





    Finally i got to replace the complete fuel pump assembly.
    The number one reason is to fix the hot start issue..and ive traced the problem to the Fuel Pressure Accumulator...but i also wanted to do abit of preventative maintenance ...to make the car bullet proof and reliable..so i decided to also put on two new fuelpumps,as they also have a one way valve on them..which COULD result in a hot start issue..if they gone bad.and the price of two new one way valves...was "almost" the same as two complete new pumps..so i just went for the whole lot Also looks pretty nice when all parts new
    Old setup






    New pump and filter



    During changeover



    Mounted and looks oh so much better






    (The new fuel pressure accumulator to the right)



    And of course i couldnt mount up the fuel pump assembly cover withouth cleaning it on the backside
    Before



    After





    And a final picture of how the engine is starting to look like internally.It REALLY helps doing some engine flush sessions with fresh oil..ive actually done 7 oil changes...i know thats abit lunacy....but i get the oil for cheap..so i might as well do it this way.But you can also go and buy super cheap non synthetic oil for the flush..and put proper oil in it afterwards





    thanx for looking hope you liked it

    I always enjoy your detailed maintenance documentation. I have plans to build a 3.6 powered Evo clone in the future and your posts will provide good info and inspiration should I follow through. To your oil change point; that's always been my reasoning behind running dino oil and changing frequently.

    i'm surprised you'd reuse the bracket with that surface rust.







    I'm really just teasing you. Your car is beautiful. Love your posts too! Always look forward to updates.

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    well people
    Time for an update on the EvoLTwin "
    Im doing some detailing on the underside of the car..
    Wanted to freshen up the brackets holding all the hydraulic lines...and fuel lines...in the same manner as i did on my 500e
    But i also wanted to freshen up the lines themselves..so i started of cleaning them and checking ALL of them for rust.Luckily they were pretty much spotless..but there was some scraping in the green color of the lines..so even though i got them pretty clean..i decided to paint them up.
    Here is some pics


    Before






    New brackets and rubbers...
    I ordered the wrong parts for the SLS/ASD lines..so i had to freshen up the originals ...luckily they werent to bad..but im gonna order them up new anyways..and the ones i got..i get to use them on other parts of the line system






    I had to paint the new brackets obviously






    Cleaning up the lines...and inspectiing for rust.no rust






    Masking from hell Primer



    Finally done.Looks miles better i think..even though the lines are not completely removed..it is alot better looking..and i know they are rust free in the areas they usually rust.












    I also got the rubber seal for the left headlight.The one i got here is actually for the Right hand side..as the left one is NLA...so i figured that i just order the left one..and make new mounting holes..cause that is the only difference...luckily





    Here you can see that the holes doesnt match up





    Made new holes



    Fitted



    I also decided to clean up the wiper mechanism...but ended up taking it all out..and cleaning up the whole area under the plastic cover


    Before



    Start to clean



    Took it out



    Cleaned it all up



    Looks alot better



    Had to put some new rivets on the fastener brackets for the trim on the bottom of the windshield.






    Plastic cover back on,and you can even see the mechanism shining through



    I also connected the US spec side indicators ,using the connector in the bulb holder,,since i got the proper US spec bulb holder aswell in addition to the new left headlight i sourced earlier


    I did not have the mercedes pin connector..so i experimented abit ..and found out i could use the "standard" aftermarked connectors..and just stripped of the plastic bit..and went from there.hope you like it














    mounted in the connector









    And done



    Hope you liked it

    This level of OCD and the results are truly remarkable. I'm alternately thrilled and terrified of your pictures because I look at them and I find myself making mental notes on copying your exact procedure for the green brake lines.

    Before



    After some cleaning ...MAAANY hours worth of cleaning actually
    And still not done..gonna perfect it even more



    New throttle body trial mounted



    Cold start valve before



    After cleanup..and mounted new hoses too








    All the brackets and bolts are sent away to re plating service.Looking forward getting them all back



    Also doing some rustrepair
    Brake fluid spilt over the years has resulted in rust under the brake booster..so the whole area is getting treated...and soon looking like new once again.



    How it looked like before toucing it



    Started to clean down to bare metal,and like i said..no severe rust.just surface rust..LUCKILY



    This was just some of the work ive done lately..gonna update with more details soon
    Hope you liked it and a final mood picture for you guys

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    A little update here people
    Been refurbishing the partition panel on the EvoLtwin...
    Put new heatshielding matt on..and turns out to be a nice little "personal" touch...
    One of the reasons for actually refurbising the old panel..is because of the price of a new partition panel,which is almost 800 dollars here in Norway just ridicilous ...
    Before



    new matt


    to stop the matt from shreading around the holes..as the matt is a fibre matt..i put aluminium tape around it..so the edge of the matt will stay intact without shredding.






    Done..or actually not done in that picture..cause i still had some finishing touches left to do with the Aluminium tape..but you get the idea


    Now was the time for the brakebooster..to make it shine..Cleaned it...sanded it down..primed it and painted it..and also got a new ATE sticker for it

    Before




    and there it is...pretty shiny finish..almost TOOO shiny


    And new ATE sticker


    and last but not least..replaced the heater control valve..which i was about to replace anyways..but after i pressure tested my cooling system to find out why the coolant level was sinking slightly here and there...i then found a hose connector that was abit on the loose side of things....after the pressure testing..the old control valve developed a leak..so it was a good thing i ordered one as a part of my preventative maintenance.

    Leaky shaft


    replaced


    Hope you liked it.cheeers

    Beautiful and clean work.
    Love the black and shiny 500E
    BTW, your 500E engine oil cap seems not fully tight in the locked position if I am not mistaken.

    hey there thaaanx for kind words

    yes you are correct about the oil filler cap.There is an issue with it...or it does not "fit" correctly..as ...when you twist it all the way to its lockin position..its not in a straight line..like it should..abit hard to explain...but i usually have it tightened so it is in a straight line as the original cap...but now its just tightened abit more,,and that makes it NOT straight...i will have to modify it to make it straight ..WHEN fully tightened....if that makes any sense

    cheers

    I also thought it would never be possible to find a reasonable package and one day it became reality, with and through contacts/help of friends. Fun fact, the initial contact which lead beside new friends also to my 6.0 package was established by someone seeking advice for a 16V

    Are you going to return the hose, order 10 more, and see if any of the others have the part number located topside?

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    Another update here

    I finally got a part that ive been wanting for a looong time.Its the fuel reserve tank..7 litre version.It is missing the filler tube though..but i saw it advertised in a local ad..for suuuper cheap..and i jumped right at it..and got it home today..and super stoked nice little detail in the 500e



    Also received my HR Evo spec front dampers for my EvoLtwin today..and even mooore stoked Finally getting rid of the bottoming out of the front shocks ,which the Bilstein B8"s is suffering from ..because of the low ridehight of the "Evo" suspension drop.





    I also got to mount the brake pedal setup,with new Clutch main cylinder...new hose..and the booster is in there finally.With a fresh sticker on it.

    Here is a "step by step" photo "shoot"

    New Cylinder


    Lubed up the hinge connection with anti friction grease


    Lubed up the plastic tension release spring mechanism on the clutch


    Mounted


    Put ATE brake mounting paste on the tube connector that connects the clutch feedline to the main cylinder.


    Mounted new hose and connector onto the main cylinder


    New rubber grommet mounted on the firewall,for the clutch feed line


    Mounted


    New original Brake fluid put on..just to let it sink in there ,have not bled the system yet.


    Done..looks good i think..maybe abit tooo shiny..Should have gone matt black..but i didnt cross my mind that it was supposed to be matt black..until it was abit to late..but at least it has a real nice shine to it


    And new sticker mounted


    And just a "random" pic of one area just beneath the brake booster..which now looks tons better..and now more rust


    So now im just waiting for my bolts n brackets to get back from re plating service

    thanx for watchin

    hey there say hey hehe

    i dont know really...but they would fit a 500e aswell..if you drill the mounting holes...IF they are different at all..i cant remember which are 12 mm and which are 14 mm

    but they are PROPER stiff---even on the softest setting..they arereally stiff..or hard dampening...these are track dampers
    cheers
