I jumped the ignition protection relay, sprayed electrical contact cleaner in the fuse box, swapped the lh relay and it started.
Yeah!!!

Joy short lived. This morning I see oil in the coolant. I flushed the engine and radiator. The engine was clean but I did notice lots of crud in the radiator.

Is it the radiator or the head gasket?

Chances are that its the radiator oil cooler

Donít know yet. Both cars where abandoned parts cars so I should not have expected to be so lucky. Iíll test the radiator this weekend. Now to find and borrow the appropriate tool.

Yup I pulled the rad and ran a garden hose though the core. Now I notice water coming up through both oil coolers. Next to find a repair shop in Tokyo. For less than the price of a new one. Funny the oil coolers looked ok.

New radiator looks great i hope it cures your issues

FWIW if oil is circulated through the coolant then it would be a wise investment to clean it with some tide mixed with fresh water then flushed out,
then replace all of the coolant hoses .

The hoses will absorb the oil and then the rubber will turn into the consistency of rubber bands,
and when the system gets up to pressure the hose will walk out from under the hose clamp, BTDT

Rufrob,

"Tide" is a brand of clothes detergent sold in the US. I don't know if Tide is sold where you live, but a strong detergent sold where you live would be warranted.

Thanks for the input. I got the new radiator which fit perfectly excepted for the tabs which were unnecessary and interfered with the flat placement of the fans. I just cut them off. Buttoned everything down topped up the atf and ran it through the gears. All good on Saturday night. Sunday morning nothing. No gears. I suck out some and itís pinkish. I drain the pan and flushed the lines. I didnít have time to drain the tc. Hope to do it tonight.

I guess some water got in.

Pulled the torque converter again and clearly it wasnít seated. When I installed the bell housing it appears to have pulled the TC forward. The TC flex plate, shaft and bearing have been installed properly ie the circlip fits in the slots. Is there a way to shim between the flex plate and TC?

Put it all back together and the same issue. Measured 28mm depth on the TC. but still no pumping. When I shut the engine down a whirring noise can be heard. Guess itís time
spend some money and call the professionals. I swear through 4 shirts 4 litres of water and 7 hours today. Iím in no condition to this job again for awhile. The cheapest used transmission here is $1500.
Though I doubt is available I see if the thereís a transmission repair shop here willing to even look at it. Or see if anyone coming to Tokyo will bring one for me.

Did lots of research here. Rebuild $5000, used $1500, from eBay $700 plus shipping $??? On Friday after work and a couple of drinks I searched the Benz section of Yahoo Auction and my birthday God(s) smiled on me and help me find a 89-928 automation transmission 75,000km/46,000mlies for $500 about 100km away. Of course Saturday the AMG wagon swallowed up the tranny.
Itís safely at home now. Waiting for a new front seal. Hope to do the swap again this weekend. Hopefully the heatwave is over here. 41/105 degrees is no joke.

Well here we go. Again.
Not so hot this morning and a late start at work afforded time to yank it out. Side by side comparison shows there is indeed a high chance the tranny was submerged.

I tried to clean the sandy dust off it


Hope the typhoon coming tomorrow will spare me time to put the new front seal in and install this bad boy.

Sunday I carefully stood the tranny up, replaced the front pump seal, thoroughly greased the seal and splines. It took about 20mins before finally got the torque converter to seat itself at 29mm. That was the lowest I could get. The bell housing was still really tight to fit, guess it was due to some rust on the nose of the TC.
Without the bell housing the TC spun easily. With the bell housing it was tough to turn by hand. Is that normal?

i don't have an auto anymore but it seems when i did that whole assembly spun pretty easily with the bell housing on - i also seem to remember that the front nose of the torque converter was almost a press fit into the 3 tabbed flex plate - could the nose of your converter be damaged or out of round? - or is the hole on the receiving end of the 3 tabbed flex plate distorted? - or maybe the plate itself is not flat but bent from someone trying to separate the bell housing from the transmission without removing all the bolts first - with these old cars you never know what they've been through
