WTB: Gen 2, 560 air cleaner housing
I posted this in the w126 FS section but didn't get any response so I'm going to try here.
I'm looking for a decent -non pitted- air cleaner housing for my 560 SEL. I would think someone, somewhere has one from a wrecked car sitting, collecting dust. eBay only has gen 1 air cleaners at the moment.
I ruined mine by cleaning it with the Home Depot drain cleaner method that was suggested in a previous post. I would strongly recommend against that method on an air cleaner due to the factory coating and the uneven etching produced by using the drain cleaner. It may be a good technique on some other part that has a uniform finish, but I can personally vouch for it not working on Air Cleaners.
