Re: Mercedes 2626 AK 6x6

Heidi was riding pretty smoothly when, suddenly, I revved up and lost traction with a terrible noise coming from the rear drive train. Ops… the cardan shaft, the fatal flaw of all the GS1200s. There still was left a couple of kilometers before getting home so I sighed and started to push Heidi’s 250...

Re: Mercedes 2626 AK 6x6

Then, we were hit by a pretty rare and strong summer storm, with plenty of rain during the night, and the next morning we realized there was a mayor leak at the entrance of the house. Called Ramón and he took it very seriously and, as it was the second time, was very drastic in pursuing the origin o...

Re: Mercedes 2626 AK 6x6

Of course, a few centimeters separated expectations from reality. 18129.jpg 18131.jpg As I was too lazy to jack the frame up I just cranked the mighty V8, waited for it to build up pressure and inflated the air bellies which cleared the path and gave plenty of room to move the trolley with the gearb...

Hello to everyone and many thanks for your words, Joe and Lura. There has been some developments in the past few weeks, unfortunately not all very good ones regarding Pairoa’s beloved hobbies and projects.

Re: Mercedes 2626 AK 6x6

The new house is still unfinished, and it lacks a lot of things, especially the kitchen and the furniture that helps to put everything in order, so it is still a mess and there are many cardboard boxes all around, and the container is still full of packed stuff, though for Carmen and me is like livi...

Hello, Härry: Right observation, I asked him about it myself.

Re: Mercedes 2626 AK 6x6

With one last push through many pieces, the front cylinder roller bearing went in and the assembly of the main shaft was complete. I was happy. The whole business, from the beginning, was to change the broken synchronizer cone, and the gearbox went through all this just to do that. 18019.jpg 18021.j...

Re: Passende Sitze und Sitzbänke mit Abmessungen

Hello, saubauer:

With some little skills, by yourself or with the help of a third party, the bases for the seats can be modified to your needs and measurements, and even get more secure and tough than originally made.
Is it not an option for what you are looking for?

Cheers and good luck.

Made a few attempts to stick with the assembly of the gear shaft but I always had something to do or something came up and interrupted the labor.
