What is this part?
I have a 1986 MB 560 SEL that has a missing plug causing a leak from a part mounted on the front of the engine below and to the left of the power steering pump - unfortunately I do not know what that part is. I am guessing that it is a pump of some kind.
It appears to be connected to the hydraulic fluid reservoir by a hose that runs under the power steering pump then becomes a metal line that loops up and back into the top of the part. The reservoir is to the right (driver's side) of the power steering pump. When I add fluid to the reservoir filler top and start the engine, that fluid comes out a threaded hole on the passenger's side of the part in question. I am not sure if the threaded hole is merely missing a plug or there is another line that has entirely disappeared.
Can anyone tell me what the component is and if it just needs to be plugged?
