I Bought Hoovie’s Really Broken CarTrek CL65 AMG & I’m Going To Rebuild It! 50-Hour V12 Engine Job!

Bílar og ökutæki

I bought the Hoovies Garage CarTrek CL65 AMG and I'm going to rebuild it. The car needs just about everything including a 50-hour engine job and is basically mechanically totaled but whatever, it will be totally fine. I'm going to fix this hand-built, twin-turbo V12 at home and I'm sure it won't need anything else while I'm in there. I'm so screwed.

    Ummm... I'm pretty sure "the wizard" just checked that super special engine oil level with the super special dipstick for the 722.6 transmission level. There is a different super special dipstick for the engine oil level. it has millimeters markings on it and the correct reading depends on which super special engine you are dealing with. Oh, and you as the owner of one of these vehicles are not able to check your own fluid levels because these cars are super special.

    Alex, those thrust arms are new. There was some effort to keep it running it looks like considering thats at least the second set of VNE 2-pc rotors and pads, control arms. LMAO I love how Wizard put on the "shopping for stuff" act for your channel too. What a great guy. Your ignition coils were going out. M275's aren't great since you have to buy them in banks or send them out for rebuild. I believe those were 24-plugs too. I would just send the ignition coils out for rebuild The M275 in my opinion belongs in none of the cars its equipped in. It's a small miracle that they actually run reliably hilariously enough they're rather low stressed from being so balanced and having so many cylinders to distribute the load in. Good luck servicing it. I would never own one based on the 24 plug, 24 coil setup. That and dropping the engine for a front crankshaft seal SUCKS. We actually used to service them and they're gems for most of their life until the 10 year mark. Thats REALLY not that extreme compared to what a Bentley/Rolls could hit you for. It's also really just a few thousand more than the equivalent 5.5L job. I'm really excited for this series, I'm like probably one of 5 serious MB-heads that only cares about repairs and less about numbers and performance figures. The S600 is probably the only car I'd put one of those v12's in for it's intended role. The car's parking brake not working is fairly serious though, I doubt it's just a TCU issue although I saw you rebuild that 722.6 with a Sonnax kit so you're the man for the job.
