Does anyone know if there is a repair kit available (rubber seals) for
the clutch master-cylinder of a 460 series G-Wagen?
The clutch starts to drag when I am manouvering, but is ok when I am
just going along the road and shifting from one gear to another, but if
I am backing up the trailer and manouvering it starts to drag, or if I
keep the clutch depressed for too long whilst I am in gear the clutch
will eventually engage with the pedal depressed.
There is no loss of fluid, which tells me that the problem is in the
master-cylinder seals (the fluid getting back past them) and not in the
slave cylinder, as if that were the case there would be a fluid loss.
The vehicle is a 1983 model, so the master cylinder is more than likely
to be the same as on the manual box 123 series Merc saloons.
Any imput on my diagnosis of the problem, and a source of after-market
seals, especially from the US, would be appreciated.
All the best,
