Dowidat never made one with the Mercedes Branding that I've ever seen.  Mercedes added 13mm bolts and nuts sometime in the late 1960's, perhaps at the 250SL or 280SL change.  I am not sure if they discontinued the 14mm.  I'd have to ask Joe or someone more experienced than I.  Earlier kits did not include a 13mm wrench.

So it depends on your model year.  Every kit I provide has a 5th wrench, the Walter 17x13.

If you have it, it can't hurt.

Let me know if you have any questions.  I browsed the model year changes chronologically, and couldn't find the crossover date.

Regards,

Mike

The wrenches in my 1966 230SL have Mercedes Benz on one side and Dowidat on the other.  One is a 10X13 wrench.  I think these are the ones that came with this car but since I have had more than 10 Mercedes, I could have mixed them up at some time.

I also have a Mercedes Benz/Heyco 13X17 wrench in my tool box (not in the 230SL).  Not sure where or when it came from.

MB Paul:

Wayne's set is Standard issue in all the kits I'm aware of.

8x10
11x13
14x17
17x19

Who the heck knows where the 10x13 is from... 

The more I learn, the more confused I look.

I've got 100 of these mercedes marked wrenches, and the only 17x13's are the Walters.  Good Luck in finding one.  If I ever see one, I'll let you know.

Sudden interest for these 13x17 wrenches?  ???
They were never part of the tool rolls delivered with our Pagoda cars from factory.

As mentioned before, the M8 hardware was changed in the DIN industrial norm in 1965. Before that, M8 had a 14mm hex (nuts and bolt heads). After, this was 13mm.
So, the entire industry, including automotive of course, started using 13mm key width. More nimble, and some less weight in a machine too.
14mm wrench ends (14x17) were indeed retained and needed in the M-B tool kit, because some fittings on the car have this size even after 1965.

Heyco made 17x13 wrenches for Mercedes as MB Paul wrote. The longer black 350 pre-Pagoda and later shorter DIN 895 models.

Hans,

I have seen supposed "original" 280SL tool kits, and they did indeed have the Walter wrench in them.  I don't think most owners would go out and try to find one if the kit didn't have one.

Thanks for the input on the 14mm vs 13mm timing.

Regards,

Mike
