Re: E200 9" rear - big or small bearing?

I find it hard to believe that oggy’s van has 9/16 socket size wheel lug nuts instead of the standard 13/16” lug nuts.


:oops: true...I mean I use the same 4 size X-wrench but a different socket.

Re: E200 9" rear - big or small bearing?

I think we have the same e200 real axle shaft with a pressed on sealed roller bearing. it's the small one and I use the same lug wrench size that I took the tire off to take the backing plate off through the access hole. It's one of the features that I like, one jack and one tool and about 20 minute...

Re: Turn Signal Cam

that looks right. the tines might need to be bent a little to get in line with the contacts. compare the old one to the new one. I actually swapped the tines from the old one to the new one. good luck

Re: Turn Signal Cam

I went through the same thing when I got tired of driving with the blinker on because the centering cams were gone. I got the cheapest replacement on rockauto ($10) and it worked but I've had problems with the push nut that holds it on getting loose over time. then the tines don't touch the correspo...

Re: Tie Rods and/or Power Steering Parts

Did your tie rods 'clunk' when turning? Or did you check for amount of play and slop and decide they are worn out? I do plan on changing the driver's side tie rod but when I squeezed some more grease in there the clunking pretty much went away. Good luck finding a spare set.

Re: oil pan gasket

The RTV seemed to seal the bolt on that water outlet housing. Ran it around today in 29 degree temps and didn't get any coolant leaks or overheating. The oil pan gasket is going to wait until I can lift the engine. The differential leak is so minor I'm not worried. I wonder if my crash into the ditc...

Re: oil pan gasket

I'll be happy if I can replace all the gaskets and have a different primary vehicle that gets better than 12 mpg. Then use the van for special occasions.

Re: oil pan gasket

I put on a 180 thermostat (replacing a 160) and a new stat housing and the allen head vent opening leaks, :x ... bubbling around the threads. the new housing is shiny and lightweight and I thought I would retire what looks like the original housing. I'll try some RTV in those threads and see what ha...

Re: oil pan gasket

I'm juggling other projects (translation: 'being lazy') and the van is almost buried in a snow bank so the thermostat change has been postponed. I have access to a drive-in maintenance shop but test driving is dicey on this snowy road. I got the 185 stat but I've been pondering adding a transmission...
