220 / Re: 1952 220 Sedan W187 build restoration

No, I have not seen that diagram.
I have ordered from Road Island Wire and pleased with their products.  I ordered the Generator-Voltage Regulator harness.  I have also ordered bulk wire and made my own repairs and minor harnesses.

My headlights are the sealed beam like yours.  If I was going just for show and full originality, I would try to source the reflector/bulb assy. that you are refering to.  I believe I was told that the sealed beam lights provide better visability at night, but I don't know for certain.  Since I do drive my car a lot, and sometimes at night, I will stay with the better visability.

See these from a ponton. I have both cars and the headlight parts look the same.

Apparently I have the wrong headlights.  I have sealed 6v headlights with the chrome ring and an adjustment ring.  I don't believe it to be correct.  Attached a photo to show.  I see on Niemoeller they have a completely different setup.  Is that what everyone has on their 220?  They have items 86, 87, 89 and 92.  I would need to find 88.  What else is needed?  The link to their product page is:

https://www.niemoeller.de/en/w187/w187/B010/43/

Item 89, the bulb holder is a replacement version and ebay has some originals I believe.  What else do I need.  Anyone have photos of their setup?

My setup is in the attached photo:

Scott,

have you ever seen the following schematic wire diagram.  Years ago it was on ebay and I didn't buy it.  It was in German.  I was looking for one of these.  I came upon some issues when re-wiring the car.  Rhode Island Wire suggested I send in my old harness.  I did that yesterday.  Their wiring kit was based on the 1951 220 and they realize Mercedes made changes without really documenting it to the public.  Rhode Island Wiring is awesome and will correct the wire confusion and advise me.  Thank you Scott for all of the help so far!  My engine went to the machine shop two weeks ago.  Once he takes it apart I will know what I need and I will post my list for any help here on where to look.

Thanks Charles.  There are a couple of 300 grilles for sale and they are not too much.  They looked real close but not close enough...  My grille is ok but has some pitting on the bottom.  It is the showcase of a car and I wanted mine to look a little better.  I don't have the crank hole and also need the center grille trim piece if anyone has one sitting around.

Does anyone know of any MB Supplier of NOS stuff out there?  Any hidden places besides the normal of ebay/niemoeller.de/ etc.   used is fine also.

Thanks all!

The 300 grille is different from the 220.  See the diagram from Niemoeller.

Yes, the diagram can be found in the owners manual.
I made a copy of the page.  I also had it enlarged onto wide-format paper so that I could make notes when I did a lot of repair work on my harness several years ago.  There were many things different than the drawing.  apparently some custom modifications, but this will certainly be better than nothing.
Download the PDF for the best viewing.
I also found a 170 wire document that might be of interest.  I don't know if there are any similarities.
Also check out the "Technical Reference" section.  The owners manual is in there as well.

Hi, I'm looking for the counterweight on the exhaust manifold of the 230 W153. I want to buy it, or if not available, a couple of good photos, to try to make it. But the best would be to find one, of course :) Greetings, Ted

Scott,

thanks for the great photos.  I do not believe I have those brackets for the combination gauge.  I will look when I get home but if not I can rig something up.  I have not seen them for sale anywhere.  I easily could put some modern sound protection there.  I will think about that.  It would also have to go on the floor, under the transmission cover in the center.  Easy enough to put on.

Another question...  Do you know if the Grill on the 220 is the same as for a 300?
