Fuel filter
« on: March 15, 2018, 04:37:48 AM »
Dear friends,

Discovered my front fuel filter is broken and I need to find a new one...
Haven't found anything on the classic parts catalogues but the following (designed for the 190SL)

Do you know if this will fit? Into the MB 170S, 136 (from 51).

I can't say for sure.  But here is my story. . . . something to consider.
About 11 years ago, before I was keeping detailed records, I had to replace the filter on my '52 220.  The new one was a little bit longer than the original and the metal cover didn't seat all the way down.  I eventually got a taller cover and wire keeper and it worked fine.  I recall also working on one where I think I was able to modify it by simply shortening the brass tubes and pressing the now shorter tubes through the disk to retain the correct pickup height and resulting in a shorter overall height of the filter.

Hereby some photos of my original filter (membran broken all around).

Logically this must be a quite common issue but i cannot find any replacement part.

Can you give me any hints to find right parts, or maybe substitutes (like the 190SL...if that is working)?

As Scott said, easiest *and cheapest) option is to find a filter from a Ponton and use the cover and clamp. That way you can use the larger and more commonly available filter.

Ziad Rahmani  W186300 at gmail.com asked me to pass on his name. He may have this part for you. Ziad was a forum member but is having some problems renewing his membership.

Thanks Henry, after a few emails Jim managed to get my word resolved.

I have what I think you are looking for the total height of the filter is 43mm ?
