126 Chrome/Polished "Goodies"
I have a spare chrome-plated water pump pulley from my 107 560SL (M117 engine) that will probably fit a 126, p/n 116 200 04 05. You could check in the EPC to see if this will fit. Be aware that the M116/380 pulley is not easily removable (at least not by me), but the 560 M117's pump is. It is used but not mounted since plating. You may have to do a little filing on the screw/center hole because of the chrome plating thickness but none of this is visible when installed.
Secondly, I have a chrome plated actuator (the cruise accelerator controller) mount. All rubber isolators are dealer new (and I almost lost several fingers installing them). I did this for my 560 and 380 but this mount is shaped differently. I am pretty sure this came off of a 126. I can't find a part number on it. Please look carefully. The mount itself is used but not mounted since plating.
Thirdly, I have a polished alternator mount, that I'm pretty sure fits 116/117 blocks. It is used but not mounted since polishing. All visible-when-installed (and some invisible) surfaces are polished.
None of these parts are plated or polished to "perfect show" standards. The chrome was done by an industrial chrome plater, which has different standards of perfection than a show car chrome plater. I practiced polishing on the alternator mount, and have "several" hours and a significant amount of supplies in it (look at yours - it's a pretty rough casting).
I have parts like these in my 107's and I like how they look. You can't buy these finished like this, and I originally bought them to work on/get plated while I was driving with the old parts!
$60.00+my exact UPS shipping cost to your zip (no packing/handling B.S.) for all three parts or best/ reasonable offer. PM me. I will offer a 10-day return, minus shipping, if you don't like them or if something doesn't fit (but please check above).
Paypal (confirmed addresses only) or US Post Office money orders only, please. I am in Kentucky.
