What oil for the shockabsorbers?
20.01.2019 um 23:03:49
 
Hi, do you know, that oil must be used for the lever shockabsorbers /Hebelstossdampfer/? Motor oil? Or hydraulic oil? Or some other? The question is for the W153, but I guess it would be the same for 170V and similar. Thanks!

Hello Ted, you should use hydraulics oil which is not prone to foaming. Try one of the alternatives described by Georges on the last page of his attachment. With old shock absorbers, I would advise you to start with the heaviest oil (high viscosity), especially if you plan to use the car mainly during summertime. Beware: if you just ask for "shock absorber oil" at a dealer's, you are very often offered oil for motorcycles, which as a rule is way too light for use in lever absorbers for cars.

Thank you very much for your responses! Very informative and now I can proceed with the rebuild. The oil from the link seems 2 types, for lighter and for heavier cars, I guess one is just more dense. I'll measure the parts and if show wear, probably the thinker oil would be right.
 
Once again, many thanks to all of you! Vielen Dank!

Hello Ted, you may have further information about the overhauling of shock absorbers in the attached thread. Our forum friend Ereyal had the same problem some years ago.

Thank you! The front shocks are exactly that model, so this thread will be useful. The small valves and springs are pretty much the same.

Paavo, the instruction says to pour oil, move the lever till all the air goes out from the cylinder and valves, and then fill it to the top:
