Looking for air diverter and other parts related to emissions control for 1977 280se. Do you have anything like that. Assembling part numbers, but a little tricky cause this is US model, but with tourist red label. so delivered in Europe w/o catalytic converter added at import. Confirming if air injection system is same as Federal, but unclear.
Nut: 0005050172 Regarding your second question if the inlet or outlet transmission oil fitting is damaged, the radiator shop can easily replace that. Normally they have those fittings in their shop or they can get them for you.
Definitely a nice one, congrats. Definitely would have been harder to find a Euro version in this condition. And then some of the Euros never converted to MPH speedos. I guess the big decision now is do you stick on a set of Euro bumpers (but keep the originals for resale).
After chasing what we thought was an oil leak dripping off the oil filter housing, it was actually the high pressure pump. The leak had to get bad enough to see it. I bought that pump from SPOB in Germany and it has about 20,000 miles on it. It was advertised as rebuilt by SPOB. Martin tore it down and discovered a gap extrusion leak. He also discovered the the bronze bearings are very worn. Comparing to my original pump which I sent in case he needed to scavenge parts from that one, Martin says the original pump with 200,000 miles on it has much better bearings.
Perhaps only an expert like Martin can spot things like worn bearings, but with the leak that was probably present from the time I installed the pump, my bet is that SPOE just sold me a used, un-rebuilt pump. At least it's the version that isn't prone to housing cracks like my original. Sigh.
post script: Martin just micced the bearings. They are the wrong ID, not worn. Pump was rebuilt, but not well.
