Sure can Hayseed

The torque increase was so great they could never quite put a figure on it

I'm guessing and I could be wrong but I feel they failed to find a dyno strong enough to handle so much Frauline awesomeness

Swishman will no doubt have to confirm this unless he can find evidence that contradicts what Im saying

What sez you Swishman ?

The Mercedes L1418 included an inline five-cylinder engine with a displacement of 355 cc that produced a minimum of 172 horsepower with a maximum torque of 455 foot-pounds, which was a 47 percent increase compared to other class-VII models. It included six-speed manual transmission, six main bearings (compared to other V-8 models with only five) and it minimized engine wear at 55 mph by running less than 2,000 rpm. It was designed with thermal, air-cooled efficiency that allowed the vehicle to sustain maximum speeds for long periods of time with a total gross-vehicle weight of 32,225 lbs.

Mercedes produced this eco model but not a big seller so sold it to Volvo who loved the boxy design for their cars.

That's a lot of grunt from 355cc. :ohmy: I presume it's a typo and should read 355 cu".

Yes I reckon that your'e spot on Pauly... the hi Torque model was like the Big Block- just a huge increase in not noticeable power, and non existant extra torque..
I was just a kid mind you, so this is all from memory- But I reckon the Hi Torque was supposed to be 205HP as cmpared to the normal 180Hp. However dad had lots of Benz's, and lots of his mates had Benz's, and I don't beleive there was any discernable difference at all... Like all trucks, some went good, some didn't.
My LPS 1418 goes better than my LS 1418, no idea why though.. And neither of them are exactly rocketships.
Dad went through lots of Benz's, in fact the last one he did a lot of miles in was a 1918- and I reckon it may even be the light blue one hooked up to the road train stock crates a couple of pages back. It was bloody ugly, being a low Windscreen model, the 1918's had tri-lex wheels (not spiders, but they looked like spiders) and a heavier chassis, with full air brakes instead of the crappy air over hydraulic junk that the 1418's had. He put a 4.1-1 diff under it, and it would never pull top gear with a load on. And for some reason because it was always "lugging" and wouldn't get up in the revs in top, it used to tear the centre out of clutches, so dad got good at replacing clutches anywhere and everywhere.
(Looking back, it may be more likely that something was out of alignment, but the "lugging" thing is what he always reckoned anyway)
Anyway now it's Shitbox Saturday so here's a few of my Shitboxes doing Stuff.
Have a good weekend!
Cheers
Rich
