Bob,


I think Katie has a RHD 230sl so it does not have that and bracket slot is not used.

I do, I do! 😁

Here is a picture of the other end (pre clean up) of the cable bracket thingy!

Thank you, Todd and Joe. Here's 8 seconds of why I'm concerned about the input shaft. Is this normal, or are there more parts I should be searching for?

Mike is correct. The engine tech data decal in the tech manual is wrong.

Fixed

Wanted To Buy / Early W113 Chrome Inside Rear View Mirror
« Last post by demichae on August 10, 2022, 03:39:27 »
Can anyone recommend a source for a high quality inside rear view mirror?  I need the chrome version for my 1964 230SL.  Found a few crappy ones on eBay but wondering if there is a better source. I’m in California.

Thank you very much.   All of you guys are awesome.

Found it on the Data Card.  It has a "3" in box [51] so it's a Radio Becker Europa stereo, USA.

Does anyone have the exact Model # I should be looking at for it?  I want to make sure I find the correct one.  I see different "Becker Europa" radios (some Model ll, etc.), made in Mexico, etc.

If no radio was installed, there will just be a dash under the 51.  Many cars were shipped without a radio and the dealer would install them here.

Belmetric.  Pennies each. Not sure of size if anyone can fill that in?  The official term is a Loose Washer Tapping Screw if that gets anyone closer outside the US.

It is also possible that the car did not have a factory installed radio, but a dealer installed (e.g: Blaupunkt) unit. Your data card may show radio preparation but no Becker unit installed.
