From your lips.....No guarantee ofcourse,but you might get a pleasant surprise on that going against the grain thing.
Actually, you raised a good point. In that document you referred to it shows 8 disks total for the B1 - and that means my car is not an oddball - that is the standard compliment. So that's a valid point and one I missed.This stuff is way over my head but doesn't WIS doc GF27.51-P-5200W,the one they refer to in the doc describing the clearance adjustment of the multidisk brakes lists B1 consisting of 4 internally toothed plates and 4 externally toothed plates? Together 8?
Or am I reading this completely wrong? Like I said,way out of my league and sorry if I may cause any confusion.Just curious and trying to learn.....
But in the actual clearance spec section, ar27.51-p-7229w, in the section for the 722.9 for the B1, they state "the number of multiple disks 3,4 or 5" so 6,7 and 8 are missing
But you raised a really good point, and it's important. MB says it has 8 disks in the document you referred to. So that is the standard compliment. That information leads me to believe MB has a documentation error with respect to the clearances, which is bad for me...
So your information is useful, but it's leading me to thinking it's a documentation error. I always seem to run into this stuff. I don't know how many thousands of 722.9's have been rebuilt at this point, but just how are they setting the clearance on the B1.....I think I can guess....I bet most shops don't check any of the clearances and just slam a new set of clutches in....and call it good.
