This is no longer available so we custom make this in our shop. This hard to find 5 way vacuum connector can be used to replace a worn or deteriorated factory connector you as an alternation you can use it to replace 2 - 3 way connectors where needed.
FITS THE FOLLOWING, all 116, 123, 107, 126, and 201 chassis 1977 to 1993 (does not work in the W124 chassis). This is an aftermarket electric water pump at half the cost of the original Bosch. It is a good quality unit for the price.
This is the new Mercedes O.E.M. replacement for the GREEN transmission vacuum modulator found on most of the models listed above. This unit has been upgraded from the original for better shifting performance (you will note it looks quite different).
This is one of the best sets I have seen recently. The doors open nicely and the lights in both visors work!!!!!. We will even include the special headliner attach clips as these complete the electrical circuit. These are also not cracked and in excellent condition.
Kent recently replaced all the engine compartment rubber vacuum hoses and connectors in his own 300SDL and was amazed at the difference. Engine shut off quicker, transmission shifted better, and engine ran smoother.
When working on automotive engines a long heavy machinist straight edge is a must. This is the best way to tell if the mating surfaces are flat and true. That includes cylinder heads, engine blocks, intake and exhaust manifolds as well as critical sealing metal to metal covers and housings.
Brand new Bosch Fuel Injector as shown. This is the later style with the smaller threads. It will only fit the models listed below with CIS fuel injection. How do you know if you have CIS? If you have hard metal fuel lines going to your injectors with no wires you have CIS.
Any of us who have owned a 1977 to 1985 Mercedes W123 for any length of time have probably had to deal with the glove box door at some point. The hardest part is loosening and removing that weird little round slotted nut on the two hinge points.
Works on all models from 1977 to 1993 with the Bosch C.I.S Fuel Injection system - see models listed below
This is a super nice filter unit. It comes with 6 replacable filters. The VERY best thing I like about this unit is the filters pull out from the top. This makes it very easy and super clean to change filter elements in a tight engine compartment installation.
This is a completely assembly SVO fuel heater that uses a glow plug to heat the fuel. The mounting bracket is designed for the OM603 and OM602 diesel engine passenger cars. It mounts the heater vertically between the ABS unit and the window washter tank.
This unit is designed to fit into the spare tire well along the right side of the spare tire. A 1/2 inch fuel hose upgrade feeds fuel by gravity from the bottom of the fuel tank into the sump heater. A copper coil coolant heater then heats the fuel before it moves up the fuel line to the engine.
A 12 volt test light is a very handy tool to have when working on any car but it is particularly important if you have a old diesel. This tool will allow you to quickly determine if there is power getting to your glow plugs, and if not where the power is breaking down.
This is becoming one of the common transmission fluid leaks on these older automatics. If the trans is leaking fluid in small puddles while the car sits for longer periods suspect this seal. You can be fooled thinking it is coming from the pan gasket.
Genuine Mercedes special Oring seal for the bowden cable housing where it connects to the right side of the automatic transmission. This is a common leak area and you may be fooled into thinking it is leaking out of the pan gasket.
A brand New Old Stock OE bowden cable for your automatic transmission. No longer available from Mercedes Benz. This part is critical to proper shift timing. The bowden cable runs from the transmission to the throttle linkage on many Mercedes from the early 1980's up through the early mid 1990's.
Set of chrome covers that go where the right side mirror should mount. No screws included.
SOLD AS A SET OF TWO. You can watch Kent's video to see how important these bulb holders are and whey he likes them so much. If you are having dash light issues and you have replaced the bulbs these might be the reason.
Excellent used vacuum shift valve for the 1978 to 1980 300SD. This has been tested in our shop and is in good working conditioin. When you put it on your particular diesel it most likely will need to be adjusted. No instructions are included with this part.
Complete set of four cabin air filters only for models listed. Why don't people change their cabin air filters??? Kent has never seen a clean set! Don't believe it, just check out his youtube videos.
New voltage regulator that bolts on to the back of your alternator. This is the common failure point. Do NOT let anyone sell you a new alternator until you inspect or have this part inspected!
Excellent used turbo diesel oil cooler. Only fits models listed. Excellent threads on fittings and no leaks.
Excellent used shfit knob. Still has grain on the top and rubber is strong and tight. Fits all W123 from 1977 to 1985 as well.
When was the last time you saw a model 116 switch panel in such good condition. Almost no wear on the switches, temp wheel and face plate and so clean on the back side with no overheat markings on the connectors.
Good used switch. no cracks in plastic. please note style to make certain it will fit in your 116 there are different types. This has the three prong (not round) pin connectors. Check carefully yours first. Not returnable if ordered in error.
Good used smooth working right side mirror as shown. Good mirror glass. Comes with chrome cover plate and adjustment handle. Only missing the little attachment screw.
Brand New aftermarket heater blower motor. This may not be as polished as the original Behr, but there are not a whole lot of options for the 123 owners other than used. Many of the used heater motors out there are just worn out.

Kent started wearing protective hand gloves back in the day when only latex was readily available. When nitrile came along he was elated and has closely followed improvements in these gloves over the years.
This is just what the doctor ordered when installing a new seal. This can prevent the lip sealing spring from popping off during seal replacement. When this happens you will never know it because you can not see the sealing spring once the seal is installed!!!
Good used alternator adjusting mechanism and mounting bracket as shown. No cracks in plate and bolt in good condition. Good adjuster with threads. No instructions. There are a couple nicks in the top of the plate.
New Axle seals to seal rear differential housing to rear axles. Please note that these only fit certain models and some are subject to a vin number split. If in doubt look at your current seals and measure the diameter.
Excellent used bracket that bolts to the engine block to mount alternator. The bolts in this bracket often get frozen to the aluminum and require cutting. The only solution is to get another bracket as shown here. Not difficult to install.
Excellent USED Factory Fan clutch removed from a OM 617 turbo diesel engine. Appears to be low time. Very firm and smooth movement. Fit all 5 cylinder diesels 1975 to 1985 as well as some gas engines.
If you have ever tried to remove and reinstall a shift rod attachment clip under your Benz you know how frustrating it can be. On some chassis like the 201 models it is almost impossible to even get to the clip let alone remove it with standard hand tools!
This resistor will prolong the life of our FAST pencil glow plugs in your old Mercedes 170D or 180D.
If you have ever wanted to know what's all involved in running your older Mercedes diesel on waste vegetable oil here is the way to find out quickly. Read these three manuals and you can decide it this is something you really want to do! Regularly $38.85
This standard 24 mm combination wrench is specially ground in our shop so that it will hold the fitting on the late 616 and 617 oil filter housing when loosening the oil cooler hose end nut. Without this wrench the fitting may start to turn with the hose nut and you will never get it off.
This kit will allow you to replace the critcal worn parts inside the early 603 U.S. made Garrett T3 turbochargers. This kit will not work if your engine has a KKK turbo made in Germany. The only way to tell which turbo you have is by visual inspection.
See Kent's video on his Fab Five. This cord is super strong and easy to tie off without the knots loosening up.
The original rubber grommet and plastic elbow will become brittle over the years from the heat of the engine. When you go to remove the breather it will often just break off in your hand! The hard seal allows oil to leak causing a mess around the front of your valve cover.
