Anyone know best place for a complete exhaust system?  Niemoller appears to have most but the collector pipe is not made.  There is a company in Germany that has stainless steel but won't ship to usa.

Any thoughts...

Mine is a one-piece welded stainless steel. I looked through my records but couldnít find when or where it was purchased.
I think I know the shop that was doing the maintenance at that time, prior to my ownership. Iíll see if I can reach them and see what they have to say. As a whole, Iíve been very happy with it. Did have to have some welds re-done but I think that was due to the rubber hanger blocks failing. I havenít been happy with the life of them so I made my own.

Thanks Scott, Mercedes Classic Center recommended them also.  I think they are still in business but their phone system seems to down.  I called a local number for them and left a message.

Does anyone know where I can get the clutch release bearing:  1812520038

or the clutch pressure plate: 1802500504 ... KF12Z Mercedes or do I need to send my pressure plate to get overhauled?

I believe Henry had my pressure plate resurfaced.  Not sure where he sent it.

The bearing has some options to consider.  The original configuration has a CLS oil line that goes to it.  This design could lead to excessive oil inside the clutch housing.  Before I got my car, the oil line had been closed off at the distributor block and the bearing had apparently been packed with grease.  It looks like it was working ok, but wasn't a sealed bearing.
You may want to check with Henry, but he was able to use a sealed bearing from a different model car, but it required modifications to either the bearing, release lever, or both.
Perhaps just getting measurements of the old bearing and checking non-Mercedes suppliers will help.  I know I've replaced several bearings and seals that I bought from Motion Industriers
