Anyone have an explanation for this car?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/321744181576?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

1980 SD with euro bumpers, euro lights, ACC2 and hupcaps in California.

Shouldn't all US diesels have US bumpers as well as US lights? And where did the hupcaps come from? My only thought is that someone tried to make the best of everything with this car. It looks pretty damn OEM.

Hey Stan, that Salesman book I mentioned on Ebay Australia a few days ago now has an equal on Ebay Germany in German language if you are interested.

Not as clean as the one I bought, and I can't see the control button.
Make sure this thing is complete when you decided to buy it.
Also, 300usd would be a lot better for a sales price. That's what I paid.

There was a thread on the weasto heater, but I can't seem to find it. What exactly does this item do? Any use on a diesel?

Correct me if I made any mistakes here;
The Webasto's are stand-alone heaters, autonomous systems that run on the fuel in the fuel tank, but do not require the car's engine to run. It has it's own fuel pump that draws only a little energy from the car's battery.
Great for those days when you are stuck in the snow and need to spend the night in the car, waiting to be rescued, haha!

There are models that run on gasoline, and others that run on diesel.
The diesel ones are still popular, and are widely available, new and used.
I know of a brand new diesel system that was on offer on eBay Kleinanzeigen, only 2 months ago, a model that was supposed to be installed in an Unimog. Think it was 300 euros..
Here's today's link for webasto's there:
https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-autoteile-reifen/ersatz_reparaturteile/webasto/k0c223+autoteile_reifen.art_s:ersatz_reparaturteile

I have not yet seen a diesel Webasto for W116-specific, but that is probably a coincidence.

They are, but for newer models they're made by Ebersp├Ącher not Webasto.
We have a W210 2.9TDI in the family, and it has one of those units. It also pre-heats the engine block.

Headlight wiper motors

Unknown condition

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercedes-Benz-W116-Head-Light-Lamp-Wiper-Motors-Pair-Rare-280-350-450-S-SE-SEL-/221828726717?hash=item33a605bfbd:g:6EYAAOSwd0BVqAPn&vxp=mtr

How hard is it to hook up a 12V supply to see if they work????

9v battery would do the same, its how I test the auxiliary water pump.

I'd suggest to wait for better looking ones. Yes, these are cheap, but they do pop up more regularly, even new.

In the meantime, this ad shows the "first 1000KM leaflet" Good chance the seller will allow a buy-this-only.
