General Discussion / Wanted - Chrome horn or fanfare
« Last post by twigren on May 13, 2019, 02:35:44 PM »
Dear friends,
Having some challenges finding myself a new set of horns for my 170S.
Like to change my originals (backside mounted) to an external set of chrome horns, or  the smaller fanfares.
Have been googling forever but cant find any good alternatives (available at decent price...)
Have you anything for sale? (6 volt, chrome..)
Thanks in advance!
Technical / Conversion to 12V and Fusebox Power Distribution
« Last post by Azryael on May 12, 2019, 03:49:32 PM »
With the acquisition of an OM616, I'll be converting the car to a 12V system.

The car will need extensive rewiring as most of it is chewed through and has seen some hacking and crimp connectors here and there. I have all the diagrams need to rewire everything.

I need to start with the headlight switch which seems to be the master method of providing power to the fuse box, but I'm having trouble getting it off.

12V bulbs have already been acquired as well.

I'll give you a ring on Monday, this weekend (or the rest of the week, for that matter) hasn't been the greatest.

I'm also searching for an owner's manual (PDF is fine) that I can reference. I've already downloaded and printed the entire workshop manual that's been provided here, which has been a godsend.

Postwar 170S / Radiators and Brakes
« Last post by Azryael on May 01, 2019, 01:49:51 PM »
What's the best solution for radiators? I've seen some Chinese-made units on eBay, but I'd rather make my own than trust a Chinese unit from a vendor I've never heard of.

Are there other alternatives before I draw up my own?

Also, with regards to brakes, is it still possible to source drums and other relevant brakes parts?

Is there a known way of converting the fronts to disc brakes? I'm not afraid of a little fabrication to do this.

I've heard of someone adapting R107 disc brakes to the fronts, which likely involves pulling the whole hub, but the actual process wasn't detailed at all.

General Discussion / WANTED - Ignition switch platse/contacts
« Last post by twigren on April 28, 2019, 02:06:42 PM »
Dear friends,

Looking for a new ignition switch, the breaker/contacts and 'plastic'-plate behind the mechanical parts around steering column.
Have been searching the web and didn't find anything.
In meanwhile I reproduced my own piece, but it's simply not good enough.

Please help and guide me where I can find (buy) a new one. Original or re-production doesnt matter :-)

Many thanks from Sweden
