Thanks for posting. I was hoping to find out who bought it. It could have been black and red, or all red. Now that you mention it, I remember finding some red paint inside the wheel rim under the rubber strip that protects the tube. This was very close to the color I picked, coincidentally, because I found the remnant after I picked the color.

Is it on when the key is on, or is it on when the key is off. If it is one with the key off,  it can be the cutout contacts in the regulator fused together, which causes a short to ground from the battery through the armature of the generator, which is very bad for the generator.

I asked Sven at Niemoeller about the rings which were showing on the website as not available. This is an error, they are available. I must say that my machinist did a great job on these. We had an NOS ring to copy which helped.

Julian,

Check the generator. It may need new carbon brushes.

Good morning I have a Mercedes Benz 1952 220.
My issue is I have a red light witch is always on in the ignition parts of the car. My 6 volt car battery is not being charged properly. Please advice how I can fix this quickly. We are doing the samurai challenge in Japan. And we have broken down due to the fact that all the power husband eaten and the husband not recharging taking place. I look forward to your advice best wishes Julian

Technical / What is left and right?? (tie rod ends)
« Last post by twigren on April 19, 2017, 04:03:15 PM »
About to order a couple of new ends to my tie rods (MB 170S) and simply don't understand what to buy...

From the site (www.automobilia-versand.de) I can choose between 16 and 18 mm. Obviously 18 mm belongs to 170S.
But further, there are option LEFT or RIGHT.
Price is the same, but there must be some difference ?!

Have to ask you guys - what is left and what is right?
For me all the ends look the same. No ?

Thanks in advance!!
