Postwar 170S / Re: HORN - Renovating...and with questions

You have to install a relay.
I had the same problem with a friends car.
One horn worked OK but when connecting two horns the signal through the steeringwheel harness the power was not enough for two horns.

Try to disconnect one horn...

Classifieds / 170 S/220 Wheel for sale

I have a fully refinished wheel for sale in black. I prepared it for a friend who eventually found his "lost" wheel. Sandblasted, epoxy primed, bead area pits filled so you can use tubeless tires without sealing worries, primed again with urethane primer surfacer, base and clear coated. Billed at $ 860 including the price of the wheel which was $ 200. Offers considered. I could paint the face any color if desired, for shop charges.

In the Niemoeller catalog, MB original number 180 016 18 20, may not be the current MB number. Their number is C 01 490. "Not in stock they say. You must use this gasket, you don't have to upgrade the cam. The cam identifier numbers are on the rear end face of the ca, facing the firewall.
Postwar 170S / HORN - Renovating...and with questions
« Last post by twigren on March 10, 2019, 04:00:59 PM »
Dear friends,

On my MB170S, the two horns are renovated (in good condition...), BUT sounds terrible.
The adjustment screw on the back, and the center screw in front doesnt really help.
The sound frequency is way too low and sounds more like a buzzer than a horn.
I feel abit stupid, as the mechanics and electronics are very basic...

Any good ideas?

Craig is correct twice,....They are 220s carburetors and the circled items are responsible for fuel return. The lower circled item with the arm pointer is attached to the accelerator pump. This sprays fuel with the slightest touch of the accelerator pedal. If the diaphragm within it are dry or cracked, will simply have hesitation problems.

The only thing that you should check is the starting aid diaphragm. It's located under the triangular metal piece at the top of the carburetor.

I have the parts if you need them.

I think what you have is a carburetor from a 220s fintail. I am pretty sure that operates as a one way valve on the lead carburetor to prevent fuel flowing back to the tank.

Off-Topic / 300 C Carburetor

Can someone please help me identify the carburetor part circled in red in the attached pictures? Do you know what it does? I'm missing this part on my carburetor and I have troubles starting in cold weather. Could it be the reason?
I was unable to find it in the Niemoller catalog parts diagram.

Thank you, Peter
