New products are coming soon!
Since 2012 until September 2017, approximately 600 sets of mechanical diesel fuel injectors have been serviced using a perfected system which will make your injectors look like new and perform like new when new nozzles are installed. Hobbyists are passionate about their cars and that passion is channeled into this injector service. Originally posting on various Mercedes forums and blogs, word of mouth spread among the Mercedes enthusiasts whereby Mercedes owners as far as Australia were ordering this service. Towards the end of the summer 2017, a decision was made to leave the forums and blogs. Within a 30-day period thereafter, over 50 forum members and hobbyist requested that the service continue. To that end, a decision was made to resume the offering of this service, but this time with a set of terms and conditions and method to broadcast and publicize the service to all those who need an inexpensive means to service their mechanical diesel fuel injectors. This includes servicing not just mechanical diesel fuel injectors found in Mercedes, but also VW, GM, and other makes.

This is how your injectors will look inside and out -- near surgically clean -- when the service is completed.
Injectors can be shimmed and pop-tested at OEM, or fuel sippers or high performance.
As a general reference, nozzles with over 100,000 miles on them are worn; however, to what extent is unknown until bench testing is performed. Nozzles exceeding 150,000 miles are worn to an extent where they “pee” pre or post pop, or both in addition to a poorly performing spray pattern, e.g., split cone pattern, et cet. Once a nozzle is worn, it is worn – there is no refurbishing a worn nozzle.
There is one remaining German maker of Nozzles - Monark. Monark merged with DES "Dresdner Einspritz Systeme" in 2014 so the nozzles you acquire may come in tubes labeled "DES." Same machines, same German quality. Until recently, MercedesSource.com had a virtual monopoly selling Monark brand nozzles in the USA. Now, some vendors are selling them on Ebay. There are three vendors selling Bosio in the USA. Bosios are made in Italy and they are a quality nozzle also. Bosch brand are either made in India or China; however, Bosch brand have a 10-20% fail rate out of the tube. Bosch brand NOS were made in France.
Within www.dieselfuelinjector.guru are links to vendors selling Monark Automotive GmbH or Fratelli Bosio s.r.l nozzles. Bosch™ nozzles are either made in India or China, and because there are so many ‘knock-offs’, their quality is always suspect.

A little history for the Mercedes Community:
From 2013 to 2019 approximately 125 Mercedes steering boxes have been serviced for classic Mercedes’ owners. First, the passion started off rebuilding boxes for personal use.

The passion is fully directed into the hobby and rebuilding steering boxes. After years restricted to the forums, it is time to showcase the talents and services here on a more universal platform.
Along the way, a few special tools were machined and the process was improved over the years, making rebuilds more efficient and the adjustments more accurate.

Steering boxes are adjusted, without pressurized fluid and separate of any vehicle, as close as possible to the specifications outlined in Mercedes Benz Chassis and Body Series 123 Volume 1 sections 46-220 and 46-480.
