Wiring Harness rebuilt service Mercedes W113/111/112/109/108/114/115

Dear friends

I am dedicated to my hobby with Mercedes Benz and it’s electrical systems.

Anyone interested in rebuilding his own wiring harness to keep originality or because lack of new options for his particular car, contact me. I will help you in all the process.

Base rate for a main harness rebuilt service USD 1,000.

Particularly interesting are those cars for which is impossible to source a new harnesses as: w108/109/111 and 112 coupes or sedans.  Plenty of experience on those.

Also can manage more complex cars as w111-3.5 and similar motorized cars.

Modifications to main harness to accommodate newer technologies or options that came on later Mercedes cars are also feasible. Examples:

1. Adding a hazard relay sub wiring harness. Eliminating original flasher
2. Modifying charge system to use more modern internally regulated alternators like Bosch AL66X, and increasing charge capacity
3. Modifying Ignition circuitry to use later original Mercedes transistorized ignition, which still uses ignition points, as a triggering device instead as a high current passing through element, increasing therefore lifetime expectancy by 400% and keeping the original look and distributor.
4. TTS override circuitry
5. Electrical wiper pump managed from the foot mechanical pump.
6. Low brake fluid circuitry
7. Buzzer system when lights are left on and ignition is off

And creativity is the limit.

For those not worried about originality can embebed alarm systems into the original wiring harness and make it unnoticeable.

Dear friends

Attached some pictures of another perfect job that I just completed.

Enjoy, and think, the electrical system on your car has never been rejuvenated, nothing last forever.

This work was for a customer in Chile who is doing a wonderful job on his w108-280SE. Main, secondary and A/C wiring harnesses have been rebuilt up to the minimum detail.

Best regards

Leonardo,
I am in the process of restoring my 1970 280SL and will want to either restore or replace my harness.  My harness looks good, but in my experience with restoring Corvettes, it is better to replace the old harness with a new one.  I've seen a few Corvettes burn up due to old harnesses.  What is it you do to restore harnesses and how much would it cost me to have my old harness restored?  Is your restored harness ready to go for installation upon receipt?  My car has an auto trans and is LHD.  Thanks for any information you can provide.
Sincerely,
Mark Spencer

Recent Air conditioner wiring harness custom made
« Reply #6 on: July 20, 2021, 21:11:24 »
Dear friends

See attached pictures from a recent sub wiring harness I made from scratch for a customer in SINGAPURE who had an aftermarket a/c system on his w108 RHD but wanted a professional approach for it now that he is restoring the car.

The logic is this:
1. 1x main power relay taking energy directly form post T30 at the battery
2. 1x change over relay cutting power to main relay when engine is being cranked
3. 1x relay controlling the condenser electrical fan
4. Electrical condenser fan is triggered by radiator water temperature reaching the desired level via an adjustable thermocouple and also triggered by refrigerant pressure reaching a predefined threshold
5. Compressor protected against refrigerant gas escape cutting it off if that happens
6. Auxiliary fuse box for the system.

Best regards

Dear friends

I found on eBay a new wiring harness for a Mercedes Ponton. If anyone wants to give his cars that chance of having a new electrical system here is the link.

The harness comes without connectors and accesories.  It requires work to be operational, work that I can do that with pleasure for you at a reasonable cost.  Just PM to study and quote your particular case.

Best regards

How do charging loom cables look after 50 years

Dear friends

For those who think that the wiring harness of your cars is a robust one, and believe everything is fine because It works, see attached photos to realize what is happening there under thick layers of tape or electrical tubing.

What happens is the second rule of thermodynamics (if I remember correctly from school): within a certain frame of reference entropy increases with time. :)

Another project just finished for a happy customer in Peru.

This is a w111-220SE coupe wiring harness converted to run on zenith carburetors with electric choke.  Has a relay for the engine bay inline electric pump, at a much lower pressure than the original pump placed below  the trunk area, and with a safety inertia switch which will cut power to it in case of collision.

New Interesting project completed w108 with w123 OM617 engine
« Reply #14 on: April 19, 2022, 12:36:03 »
Dear Friends

Just finished a project that some may consider not respectful of car roots, but I just helped the customer to solve the situation created by previous owner.

This is the case of a W108-280SE fuel injected that lives in Dominican Republic.  This car as lives in a place where not many mechanically fuel injected Mercedes specialist exist, so at some time of its history they decided to switch the originally FI M130 engine for a diesel OM617. 

Of course actual owner of the car received the heritage of some engineering errors made during that conversion.  And nevertheless the engine works, the control part of the pre-glow system and the engine shutoff system is failing.

At the beginning I though this was an usual w108 wiring harness restoration.  The complexity came after once the owner told me about the w123 Diesel engine conversion.

The implementation of that engine conversion brought some new problems, as the heat generated by the turbo compressor which affects the performance of the original A/c system.  On all w108 the refrigerant high and low pressure refrigerant hoses are run trough the right side of the engine.  The proximity with the turbo generated and undesired excessive  heat exchange.  Therefore, to make it work it right, all components will have to be moved to the LEFT SIDE, and as a consequence the original A/c wiring harness has to be modified or remade. The later was the solution taken.

Originally the pre-glow system used on this conversion came from a w115 where the pre-glow plugs are connected in series.  That was changed to the logic used on w123 300D from year 1980 up where a new kind of pre-glow relay is used that connects the new style (faster) pre-glow plugs in parallel.

A new instrumentation cluster that came from a w115-75 was included on the project which made me change the instrument cluster connector pin positioning (pin re mapping) to make it work properly. W115 from that year used electric signals for the temperature gauge, and also has a diesel glow plug light indicator.

The engine didn’t shutdown when turning engine to the off position, maybe because of a mis adjusting of the fuel cutoff cable, and customer asked me to give it an electric solution, so a Normally closed fuel cut off valve was added.

If you have a similar project on hands write me.  I may help.

Best regards
L.Peterssen

Hello Leonardo,

I have sent you several text messages and emails and tried to phone, but I have not been able to reach you. Is everything alright?

According to DHL my harness is in customs at Valencia, so hopefully, once it clears it will go out for delivery. I am hoping that happens today.

Best,
Roland

Dear Roland

We had a power cut as a consequence of a sky lighting that lasted 32 hours.  The  event occurred on a major 13.5KV substation that feeds energy to more than half the city were I live (1.5 million people) and therefore there were no phones, no internet etc.

I used the standby briggs&stratton generator installed at home for short periods no longer than 2 hours to have basic things running as the fridge etc.  But no phones and no internet.

We are Ok,thanks for asking.

Best regards
L.Peterssen
