(Another) 1978-mid 1980 W116 300SD OM617 Early Air Cleaner

This is an air cleaner assembly removed from a 1979 Mercedes-Benz W116 300SD. This will fit the early 300SD (1978-mid 1980) without an EGR valve or oil drain tube that fastens to the underneath of the air cleaner. The housing is rusty but is a prime candidate for powder coating. I didn't see any dents or damage besides the obvious rust and paint loss.

The threads of the stud that hold on the air cleaner lid are in great condition. They were stripped, so I cut off the threaded stud, drilled into the shaft, tapped threads with a metric tap, then screwed in a new metric stud and secured it with JB Weld (it took me many hours to do this). Now it works like it should and in the future if the threads were to strip again, you could easily replace the stud. The 4 clips that hold on the lid also work well.

Included are several extra parts. There is an old FRAM air filter inside that should probably be replaced. Included is the U-tube that goes from the air cleaner to the turbo--with a brand new genuine MB grommet installed--but it needs new seal rings and one of the clamps is missing a bolt. You also get the plastic air intake pipe. The air cleaner mounting bracket with rubber mounts is included and has been repaired, with the welds ground down around the mounting point so it sets level.

Asking $40 plus shipping from Tacoma, WA, USA 98404.
