Are there any parts in the ponton two boot axle that fit the 1951 220 axle?

There doesn't appear to be ..... the gear ratio's are different and the housing is completely different.

An easy way to find out ponton-replacement parts fitting 170/220 is to read the spareparts catalogue A 170-220 from Niemöller.

If you in catalogue A 170-220 find a spare partnumber starting with C this part can also be found on a Ponton Mercedes.

Also, in the U.S. we can access for free the Mercedes Benz parts data base "EPC On-line".  As part of that powerful tool you can find what part is used in what series of cars.

https://epc.startekinfo.com/epc/welcome.jsp

The data base includes all "post war" cars including the 170/220 models.  It includes pictures of the parts page with part numbers and replacement part numbers.  The data base has other search functions that are helpful,  such as entering a part number to find what car it belongs to.

To subscribe, you have to enter a credit card for identity and citizenship verification, but you are not charged for the basic free service.  Thank you MBUSA!

To answer Charles' question, I used the EPC on-line to determine that the Ponton W120 does not share any parts with the 220 W187 differential except for one adjustment screw.

This hypoid differential was designed for the 300 (W186) and was shared by the 170Vb (W136), 170Sb (W191), and the 220 (W187).  The actual rear axles and axle tubes are specific to each of the above models except for the 170S and 220 which are the same.

Thanks Lars and John,

The reason I asked was that a ponton member has a two boot axle that he wants to give away. He lives in Houston, Texas.

What do  the G and E letters mean in the Niemoller catalog in front of the part number? Thanks for info on the letter C .

The letter G  (Gebrachtteile) in front of the part number in the Niemoller 170-220 catalog means a used part.
