FS: Elsbett Nozzles and 1 other set of injectors - Decent Deal.
I am selling the following for application in W123 and/ or OM617.9XX turbo settings or similar drop-in engine applications.
1. 1 set of old school Elsbett nozzles (before they went out of business and transformed their company to a different name.) These were purchased on September 4, 2010. I have the receipt and will post it shortly along with pictures.
2. The 1 set of Elsbetts are intalled in Turbo injector holders. I performed the service: pop tested, balanced, et cet at a nominal 1,975PSI +/- 25 PSI, which is 100% better than FSM which is +/- 50PSI.
The Elsbetts cost 132 Euros in 9/2010. That is roughly 1.306 x 132 = $172.39. I am excluding German shipping, et cet which was 36 Euros.
I totaled my 1st MB on October 21, 2011. I am guessing excluding the ship time to me from Germany, they were installed for about 10 months. I probably traveled about 1,000 miles, give or take per month, so that puts me around 10,000 to 12,000 miles max on thos nozzles. The deal also includes 5 new heat shields and 1 meter of return line. The buyer does not need to return to me their cores as a swap. The service for 5 MB injectors is $99.00 shipped CONUS, and with the heat shields and return line, I normally charge $119 for the set - kit.
AND, on top that, if the buyer sends me their old injectors (the ones actually removed from their car and not junkyard specials and yes I can generally tell the difference at this point), I will do the customer's old injectors either with the new nozzles the customer buys OR just using their old nozzles. If you have a bum 1 or 2, I will replace with decent used Germans (240/) for free. If all 5 are bad, I will sell all 5 decent Germans for an additional $20, but that will need to be determined once I get them. If it's just 1 or 2 bum ones, no charge.
So, to recap:
Service for Elsbetts with HS & RL $119.00
Service on buyers original injectors just in case a spare set is needed $99.00
(I will pay the shipping back to the buyer)
That totals : $390.39
I will discount the above and the above is being offered for $250.00 firm which is pretty decent deal. The above is sold as a "job" or "lot.".
Please PM if interested.
I did not post this in the W123 specific thread because these injectors will fit a W115 5 cylinder and some other applications.
