I do the same mate. You need to pull the guts out to set the pinion preload accurately with a new crush sleeve, and I only do that when replacing all the bearings. I've seen plenty of pinion bearing failures from over tightening the nut though. I think a tech in the local dealership round here had trouble counting

Is that new tensioner Febi? I ask because Febi parts seem to get very varied reports on quality. I ask also as most of your other replacements for this delightful car seem to be MB original.

What are others' attitudes to Febi?

I ordered Lemfoerder flex discs for mine and the wretched people sent Febi. However, on inspection, they turned out to be SGF, so I didn't send them back. I did buy a set of MB original nuts and bolts to install in place of the Febi-supplied ones. Am I being too sceptical?

Am most impressed with this coupe restoration and am hoping to achieve something similar on my old Sportline. Not looking for concourse but I'm hoping another 25 years might be possible.

A few pics here to show the current, well-used, 420 KKms state!
