170DS glow plugs
« on: March 24, 2014, 11:16:16 PM »
Hello

I need help; a suggestion.
Where can I buy glow plugs for my 1953 170DS?  I ordered 4 from Mercedes Classic Center and they shipped me four items with p/n 000-159-61-01. These had a shorter length of small thread on the top end than did my old plugs.  With the shorter thread length, I could not attach the conductor bars, so I returned them.
Where can I get the correct plugs?  Does anyone know of a source for them.
many thanks,
Richard
P.S.  My old plugs are stamped:  KE/GA1/8  0.9V Bosch Germany

Hi Lerch;

Thank you for the Ebay suggestion.  I found a source for a Champion CH61 161 glow plug for a 180D and a 190D.  I plan to order a set as I think they will work on a 170D also.

I will find out when I try them.

     Thanks again
