Well i finally got my SLK230 back from my mate with new engine/gearbox fitted.
Unfortunately the conductor plate failed so had to have that renewed.
So cost was Eng/box = £450 Fitting = £500 & plate change £507
Total cost, £1,457.

So next job was to fit the matching clocks (35k) to the engine. SO swapped em over & everything worked bar the fuel gauge needle?

After faffing about i decided to put my original ones (95k) back in. And guess what, the same happened to this even tho it was fine an hour before?

Now i did notice, my clock numbers were 1705405511 & new ones were 1705407711 so not an exact match.

But what would cause the needle to fail in both when plugged in? And no, it has nothing to do with the fuel tank sender as it was fine before!

Well that was a bust.
Reconnected the Battery & other than resetting the BAS/ESP L-R-L-R on steering wheel, everything but the fuel gauge works fine.

Proper pissed off now, as i will not know when i'm running out?
Just hope the yellow warning light will come on at low tank?
It still lights up at ignition turn on, then goes out at start up. Tank 1/2 full.

All cured, seems the LH plug was just not located far enough in.
Needs a good push with the grey lock tab fully down.
So i now have matching clock mileage to my engine :wink:
