I knew what WBCC was, but the 4cu bit had me puzzled, that for the info..
I know that this thread is supposted to be about my Airstream, but I have a lot of stuff ongoing, and a list of priorities to get thru before I get a straight shot at it!
My Jeep 5.9 is all ready for the family to arrive from England... Sister arrives today, for 2 weeks.
Parents arrive in November, and I am planning to surprise them with an Airstream trip. So between mid August, and November I am planning a solid push, but have a few jobs to get done...
Last week we got rid of an old project... one of the kids had a 1991 Ford Taurus Wagon... Junked!
Yesterday, it was TLC time on old faithful, my 1984 190D.
I bought it for a bargain $550 18 months ago, and the 35mpg everywhere is wonderful, but its slow, and the A/C is not working.
After being loaned out to 2 teenage boys, it needed some servicing.
It had a wierd shimmy at 65ish, a brake wear warning lamp, no parking brake(one of the boys drove with it on
), and it was running hot.
Here she is as I got her with 165k miles, now has 195k.
The front brake rotors were toast, so worn they had a 1/8" lip on the outside edge, that had cut thru the brake warning sensor, yet the pads were still ok. Relaced Rotors and pads.
Rear brakes were fine, but the parking brake cable was stretched out.
The shimmy was next... found a worn steering linkage, so that is on order, Replaced all 4 shocks with some Bilstien HD's my son took off his Mercedes, and although I knew all the tires were almost done, this tire was in bad shape... Scary!
Money is tight, the 14" Mercedes wheels and tires are ugly, so I had a brainstorm... before I took the Ford Taurus to the JY, I took off the 17" Alloys and put the steels back on..
A trip to my storage, and a test fit, and all looked pretty good..
A set of Hubcentric rings, and some PCD varience bolts(Wheels were 114.3 PCD, and Mercedes is 112)
Not perfect either in look or fit... the tires are 225/50 17, and I think 205/40 would be best!
No fouling so far tho, so I will live with it!
