W111 3.5 fan shroud
« on: February 12, 2016, 21:15:54 »
Hi there,

Does anyone have a fan shroud for a w111 3.5? Even one from a w108 3.5/ maybe a w116 etc that may fit with a bit of fettling?
I'm typing this with the only finger I've got left, and I'd like to keep it.
Thanks.
Dave

The original 3.5 fan shouds are VERY hard to come by (It could cost you an arm and a leg ...literally. ive been down this road..... Check with Palm Beach Classics to see ).
Alternatively,I think the shrouds with part # 1085050255 might work. i have seen a few on ebay for way less.

Let me check tomorrow. I parted a 3.5 W109 last spring and I know I have radiator, but cannot recall what happened with the shroud.

You can always make a fiberglass shroud. I made one for my W111. It took me several tries because I had never worked with fiberglass. It looks and works great.

I checked mine is MIA. Maybe I make another try when it is a bit warmer so I could haul stuff out of my garage.
