I have a 1990 300e 24 valve model Benz.
Just had the vale guide seals replaced and the
mechanic hit a snag.
He tells me that the thread on a pulley in the timing gear
It is a left hand thread.
To repair this he has to get a M10 X 1.5 Recoil kit, which has
an over size tap to put in the recoil, which then has the same
diameter as the stripped thread.
A different company provides the tap to the recoil company
and is messing them around.
I can buy a tap elsewhere but I don't know what size the tap
needs to be for the recoil to fit in ???
Any ideas ????
