1985 300 Series Page
These pages are dedicated to the many people that have helped me get through the learning curve and keep these cars on the road.
2/December/2007: Today I purchased another 300SD. I just can't help myself.
1/October/2007: Replaced the turnsignal switch on the 300SD - A little more of a challenge than the easy job on a 123 model. Go here and see.
5/June/2007: Going to the Chineese restaurant. Going to see about filling up the tank there. Going to the burger joint too. There will be a separate page. Stay tuned...
5/June/2007: Icons are new. They are:
Test: A point of measurement or verification.
Info: A point special information that should not be glossed over.
Warn: It is easy for something to go terribly wrong and a) sever an artery, or b) cost you money, because it broke.
11:54 PM 6/3/2006: Added the PDF icon: "Printer Friendly Version" will be added or fixed as time permits. This is a lot of editing and code change.
6:43 PM 3/1/2006: The "Donation" link was improved. Please, give it a try.
The format of the project pages will be similar in philosophy to this page. Although many of the early pages have been updated, some are a bit more simple in layout & information.
I will be updating each page with some project information near the top of each page. It will consist of three items: Difficulty / Skill Level; Date; and Time Estimate.
Difficulty / Skills:
1 Novice: Little skill, few tools. This is for the individual that has little to no sense of adventure. But... With this web page and maybe someone you can ask questions, you could easily graduate to level 2.
2 Amateur: You have changed your own oil & filters. You are capable of minor repairs around the house, and have even been known to do things like change a light fixture with sucess.
3 Shade Tree Mechanic: You know your capabilities & these page just make your life easier.
4 The Electrical or Mechanical Type: This is the individual that has a well rounded skill set. This would include both advanced mechanical or involved electrical knowledge.
5 This is Engineer-class skill set. This may involve welding, machining, or building electrical test fixures.
An approximation to when a particular project occured.
A rough idea of the time taken to actually do the job. This does not include set-up, clean-up, drinking beer, or driving to the store to buy said beer.
Support / Donations:
It is the intent that these pages have been a service to you, and hopefully saved you some big repair $'s On the flip-side, I have done these pages for the enjoyment of the hobby and to return back something to the pool of knowledge that had helped me.
Here's the "However" part. I am incurring costs - especially since moving from personal web-space to a real site. So... I'm requesting donations, small ones, a few dollars, that's all.
This page sets one - sorry. It's by Paypal, and has to do with the donation section in setting up a secure connection. I'm not going to steal your Id., hi-jack your homepage or send you porn. If you have security set to a higher level there will be no change in how the page works or loads. If you do decide this visit has been worth your while, and want to send off a few dollars, you might have to allow this one cookie to be set.
