Thank you,
I would really appreciate the VIN of the Axor to avoid any confusion in engine type selection.
Do you require the tappet service interval or work instructions?

thanks for your responce,but I was not wanting to take out a contract for a month or have to cancel at a later date and forget about it.

The question i have asked is the only one I would need answering.


Hi Brian,
I would need the VIN to give you a precise answer.
I do not know the details of your contract, you should check it with customer service. My job is to answer the Mercedes question to your full satisfaction.

please answer

There are 2 different types (900 or 457 series) of engines used on Axors with dozen variations.
THat is why i ask to give me the VIN of the vehicle, otherwise the valve clearance values might not be correct for specific Axor you have.

OK, although it is not a full VIN, i was able to determine that the truck has 457.9xx engine.
