1990 300TE Head Gasket Question

Hi all, I'm just now pulling the head on my 1990 300TE to replace the head gasket. Never done this on a Benz before and I'm looking for advice on the head gasket set and head bolts to buy. I know they are all not created equal. Shoret of going to my local Benz dealer - what is the best quality kit to buy - and from whom ? Same for the bolts - who to buy from and what to buy ? Thanks !

Try looking in the w124 forum. They will probably know what quality kit to get for your car.

If I remember correctly, I got the gasket set and head bolts from autohausaz. I might have got the bolts from the dealership if autohausaz did not have them. It has been a few years since I did it!
