117 584 3221 on the valve covers

According to my dealer sources, 3221 was replaced by 2121 some years ago, and was originally used on early model W126 V8s.
The 3221 however is the one that all W116 V8s (at least euro spec) would have had from factory.

That's the only one you can get at the dealer:

1979 "Icon Gold" W116 450SE (history, resto)
1977 "Milan Brown" W116 350SE (parted out)

Hi Ptashek,
typo? 3221 should be the sticker that the W116-V8s had from factory.

Update on my reproductions:
The stickers A123 835 00 88, A108 835 00 88 and A117 584 32 21 are already available from me (see above).

As announced the valve-sticker A115 584 36 21 will be available (approx) April, 1st.

I can also offer the correct sticker for the brake booster.
It is not very easy to reproduce them as the sticker includes the date the booster was made
and other variable dates.
Examples:
3.6157-0310.4 (with datecode 76-5) is the sticker of my W116 350SE (the car was delivered in june 1976),
the second sticker (with datecode 78-7) is from my 6.9 (the car was delivered dec.1978).
What I can offer: if you send me a photo (or the text) of your sticker until march, 28th I will reproduce
a sticker exactly as you want it.
If your sticker doesn't exist anymore then select from my 2 photos and choose a date 1-2 months before
your car was built (hint: my 350SE is without ABS, the 6.9 is with ABS).
Second thing to choose from:
Looking at the photos you will see that the original text is not printed horizontally but at an angle!
So let me know if you want to have the sticker with a light angle, or horizontally.

And I can offer the late sticker for the air conditioning (A123 835 01 88) soon.

Both (Brake-booster-sticker and AC-Sticker) will be available in 3-4weeks time from now.

If you are interested - just send me a PM.

Update 2:
I will also have the M100-Sticker available in 4 weeks time.
It sits on the brake booster (in my 6.9).

Hello Stan,

ok - just choose from the stickers I offer ;-)

@all
Is there a need that I reproduce this brake fluid sticker as well (sits on top of the brake booster)?
A few question arise:
- which years to print on it?
  From 1980? From 2016? Also from 2020 for future use?
- This one on the photo is incomplete (lower right corner with the part number is missing) and distorted.
  Anyone has a good photo that is taken vertically from above?
- excact size?

Thanks,
Thomas

My opinion might be controversial, but I would actually not reproduce any service related stickers.
Why help the dishonest people out there in the big bad world faking an "OEM" service record?

... a service sticker starting with "2016" should be easyly recognized as a later reproduction.
I think most buyers would not rely on such a sticker in conjunction with a missing "wartungsheft" (so no name of the guy who did the service
is available). No prob in my eyes.

I was hoping for a vintage service label with date range of 1977-1980,  as opposed to a current world one.

I would vote for an identical reproduction, not a "2016" version. If not, what is left of this quest? May as well stick a "Nike" sticker where the brake booster sticker was.
I don't want to be forced out of the "authentic" area into the repro-area, just because some scammers are trying to fake a car history.
Buying an oldie takes skill. The more money you have, the less skilled you need to be.

This one is the same as the one I posted a photo of however the dates update every 4 years I believe. On the subject of new decals I don't see the Bosch Coil decal anywhere here, should we add that in - I think there are two on each coil.
