Also check the distributor lid for cracks, the condition of the "graphite" inside, also sometimes the distributor capacitor may cause similar problems.

My guess would be a coil breaking down.
Postwar 170S / Engine problem...!?

Dear friends,
Had a great summer and enjoyed some beutyful miles on the roads with my loved one (170S).
After some earlier tough struggles with engine, components and tuning my car runs very good.
Starts immediatelly and runs very ok.

However, during my last trup and all of a sudden (...long way from home!), the engine started to ”cough”.
Died but Restared again without any problems. Could then run maybe 15-30 seconds when the engine died again.
This repeated many times (maybe 20...) and I couldnt get home and had to be rescued by a towing truck. At the end it was basically impossible to move more than 10-15 meters before the engine died.,😥

Home again (a week after...) I started to look for any failures or any problems with leaks, problems, air, fuel or anything. I couldnt find a single issue.
The car runs perfect again. Have tried to let it run 20 minutes and no problem occurs!
How can this be? I suspect the fuel pump or potentially the carburator had been the issue..?
However, it is damn (!) impossible to repair something that is working perfectly...
And advise or good ideas....?!

So you are looking for the chrome trim for the right side door?
Do you need all the pieces?  If not, can you be more specific of specify the part numbers? Maybe a photo?
Also, the body style.  Sedan, Cab A, Cab B, etc.

Hay Guys Just figured out how to post!
   I`m looking for a the entry trims for 220 sedan. I bought a brass repro set from a vendor a couple years ago that had two drivers side trims but no passengers side. I haven`t been able to find them since.  Does any one here have Them or do I need to try to have reproduced?
  Thanks for the help

I'd take the whole thing if it were down here; no place to keep it, and my shell is having to move or else it's "sold" with the building it resides in.
