1. MOTORS

Our engines are perfect in every detail and satisfy the most stringent customer needs. Before delivery every motor is tested on a proving ground and correctly adjusted for mounting. Apart from the starter and clutch every part of the engine is automatically included in the delivery. Carburettors, ignition distributor and generator are professionally restored and tested. The engine can be operated with unleaded gasoline! The crankshaft is re-positioned and together with the restored flywheel re-balanced. The cylinders are drilled and bored and the pistons renewed. The cylinder head is measured, equipped with new valve guides and graded. Finally, a new varnish, combined with different surface treatments, gives a magnificent look to every engine. Engine restorations that are not for exchange can be carried out as well. Specially for the types: 220 SE, SEb, 300, b, c, S, SE, Sc. Send us your defective engine, we will examine the spare parts and send you a cost estimate. We also provide mounting and de-mounting.

2. Carburettors

Every carburettor that is to be restored is checked for completeness and originality, disassembled and cleaned. All parts are examined for wear and tear as well as for damage and - depending on the diagnosis - renewed/replaced or repaired. Removed throttle shafts are renewed, worn mountings/seatings equipped with bronze bushings, manually reamed out and brought to the required settings. The casings are bead blasted and all threads re-cut and/or restored. Surfaces are plain-milled, mixing chambers, in cases of excess wear, spindled out, over-massed throttle valves adjusted. All additional parts/spare parts are re-manufactured and supplied with corresponding surface finishings. The mounting process includes the use of new gaskets, diaphragms and re-manufactured parts. For the completed carburettor, float level and acceleration pump are set to the required standards.

Which carburettor do you need? Have a look at our supply programme or send us your special request. Single restoration of types that are not included in the exchange programme can be combined with a cost quotation.

3. IGNITION DISTRIBUTORS

Every ignition distributor undergoes an initial examination on the distributor test bed. Subject to the diagnosis the shaft bearing is renewed or adapted on "Compobuchsen" (early types). After jet cleaning the casings are rubbed down and varnished. After the components have been examined and the worn parts exchanged, the construction and adjusting follows, with reference to the Bosch-instructions. The final examination and adjusting includes spark gap, dwell angle, centrifugal force and vacuum advance. We restore your 300 SL-distributor as well as your 540K. Common types are available directly from stock.

4.Starters and Generators

After the de-mounting of the starter or generator, anchors and fields are tested and processed. In the case of badly reinforced field spools, they will be re-wrapped and coated in special varnish. After the bead blasting, casing-parts are polished and varnished. Additional parts such as magnetic switches, pinions and Compobuchsen will be restored. The mounting process takes place with all the new or renewed parts and the starters and generators tested.

5. Transmissions

Due to the fact that spare parts for older transmissions are hard to get, we examine the state of all helical gears, shafts and function-parts very carefully. The casings are emptied, jet-cleaned, externally cleaned and newly-varnished. Needle bearings and DIN-bearings are renewed as well as sealing rings and gaskets. Where parts are defective, we can fall back on our extensive stock of used parts. The adjusting of helical gears and bearing gaps is carried out with great precision and we adhere strictly to the manufacturers' instructions. If needed, the selector covers are sleeved and the selector rods are resealed. Restored transmissions delivered without oil.

6. Rear Axles

Brake anchor plates and wheel naves are carefully jet-cleaned, wire brushed and varnished. As far as the drive pinion and ring gear is concerned, these parts will be replaced with new or used spare parts in cases of excess wear. Differential gears are adjusted to be free of play, and all links are restored. The renewal of all bearings, rubber sleeves and sealing rings is obligatory. For link axles the connecting pins are sleeved and reamed. The right adjustment of plate and cone wheel is examined by inking. The axles are supplied without brakes and oil filling. In case of special requests your brakes can be restored as well. If you are concerned by noise or even worse things from your axle, we can help you!
