LOL, I would have posted this on April 1st, but my Car will really genuinely
have the 5.0 V8 in it by then
Thanks to everyone who responded, I know most of you got the joke, and to those who didn't or were simply playing along my humble apologies, but it was just a bit of craic
I had both the R170 and the W220 parked bonnet (hood) to bonnet and pulled off the Airboxes to look at potential issues with things like Pipe Routing, Wiring, etc etc
Pleased to report it should all swap over very easily.
It was at this point I popped the V8 Engine cover on top of the V6 Motor and then came up with my "bright idea" for a wee photo spoof
As said in my genuine V8 conversion thread, we are using the V6 Car almost daily right now, plan is to get everything out of the Donor Car and buy the last few bit's needed in the meanwhile ..................
Yes ................... and cleaned up / detailed
Then I will take the R170 off the road when Winter arrives and get that V8 in it, that will hopefully be around September end as that is when the road tax expires.
What I did also do yesterday afternoon was finally get rid of the last knocking noise (left front) ............... I fitted a pair of new Springs, Rubber Pads and Shocks on the Front, having already replaced upper and lower arms plus Ball Joints, I had previously discounted the Shocks because PO had done them fairly recently, but he had used BOGE, which are known to be [email protected]
, so I decided to change them. Very pleased I did
Car is now an absolute dream, over some rough roads locally it drives and sounds exactly as it should, = dead quiet, with no rattles and knocks etc, so I'm well happy
Cheers for now, Dave
