RE: 1971 220 d

It's definitly a 10 mm allen head bolt,try phoning the service manager at your nearest MB dealer and tell him you will bring your starter in for repairs...[:D]Then ask what size allen key you need.Or try a MB wrecker.
NOW,the most important bit,you are 17?,[8D],when i was 17 i was serving my apprentice ship and the best advice I got at the time was to buy the most expensive tools you can afford,and i did ,i'm still getting great use out of 30 plus year old wrenches i use every day.[:)]
So ,with this in mind i'm telling you to go and buy a ... 1/2" drive allen SOCKET to fit a 10mm capscrew.[;)]
1/2" drive because it's big and beefy and wo'nt let you down and because you are going to buy a good brand like "UNBRAKO or GEDORE or Stahlwillie",not walmart shit which will break on you leaving you stuck with no money and a sick starter.you need the socket because the bolt will be as tight as a fish's backside and you cannot swing a allen key in there.There should also be a 17 or 19 mmm bolt which has a earth strap connected to it.
But,before you go blaming the starter,and because you have a new battery,check along the positive cable unil you reach a terminal block with three connectors on it.undo the cables ,they only fit on their own places ,but don't mixem up,clean all the connections and cable ends with a bit of sandpaper,reconnect everything and try the starter again.If no joy ,then remove the starter.
"knackered?" from the old english expression for the place where old horses went to be made into glue or suasages,"a knackers yard",so if you have something that is knackered or you feel knackered it means it's f****D.[:p]
