Lubricants for 170 models
« on: October 07, 2013, 10:00:14 PM »
Can anybody advice on brands and weights of modern lubricants used for engine, clutch, distributor, central lubrication system, hypoid differential, and transmission for model 170 Vb? Also, can anyone provide a picture of the original cigarette lighter used on 1953 170 Vb?

Thank you for your help, Peter.

Tomorrow, I will take a picture of the 170Vb cigarette lighter and post in the evening.

Here are pictures of the cigarette lighter for the 170Vb.  The pictures look as though the handle / knob is dirty but the 170Vb color was graublau (grey blue).  In the last picture you can barely make out the manufacturer "CASCO"
