  1. redneck diagnosis works sometimes sometimes a good hit will cause bad brushes to contact again bang on the bottom of the tank then turn the key on....if the pump works or makes a weird noise the brushes are shot and youll need to change it
  2. "It's better to light one candle than to curse the darkness" (The Christopher motto)
  3. the pal paperwork takes quite a while anyways...and that was before the shutdown...i cant even imagine how slow it would be now for background checks
  4. i see youre in Ontario you can search parts yards by using the online search tool on OARA
  5. anything is possible if youre a good welder and body man
  6. i dont know about that line specifically but dipping similar looking nylon fuel lines in very hot water helps for removal and installation of barbed fittings
  7. i dont see any mercedes dealers in the sault....closest i can find is sudbury fine cars and they are crap to deal with on their good days so hopefully you can safely repair it
  8. might be some kind of valve in there too...which screws it up you might have to find a mercedes dealer or check local parts yards ...or find one online
  9. i cant give a good answer for that without being there doesnt hurt to try though just remember it needs to be vacuum hose ...most other hoses are designed for positive pressure instead of negative and wont hold up well in a vacuum situation
  10. thats for the vacuum pump
  11. i suppose we're not allowed to talk about this though...might be political or personal? back to facebook memes please
  12. yes..all transportation related businesses are deemed essential technicians included
  13. use whatever is available i used some from princess auto because they came with wires and a plug there should be plenty of threads here about relay mods

  15. looks like someone had all the pins out and was using needle nose pliers the one with copper strands sticking out is for the fuel pump
  16. my first thought was "yikes" then i remembered that my cabrios connector was so melted it was converted to a two piece connector and a mess of wires with 3 relays added one of the headlight feeds was so bad i had to run both relays from just one feed

  19. i mean the small wreckers ...the big ones wont sell small things sometimes for small stuff you have to go to a upull type place and cut it off yourself while youre buying something else are you sure its the 11-5 you need?...i think the problem one is usually an n11-3
  20. anyone else think its absolutely ridiculous to include cannabis retailers as essential service? i understand the lcbo due to alcohol withdrawals but cannabis is supposedly safe and non-addictive so i see no reason at all and if youre going to give medical as a reason i remind you that medical dispensaries are completely different system from the recreational stores
  21. ebay...junkyards ive seen a few for sale also im pretty sure ive seen posts where people got them from mercedes dealers
  22. I predict a landslide victory for Trump 2020...also republican majority for house and senate we'll come back to this in november and see who is right
