Power steering on W115..re-inforcement.
I'm currently restoring a 1973 W115 200 /8 .
And, I will rebuild the car, so it gets power steering.
But, I've heard that many of these old /8 models actually have weak spots in the front. So there might occur cracks or breakage at the powersteering-box.
I also heard that someone ?? Mercedes-Benz or a Mercedes garage, at some time made a re-inforcement to the front of the car. Some BOLT-ON kit, so the "frame" would better tolerate the power og the powersteering.
I've contacted Mercedes-Benz dealer and asked, and got no answer.
My car is allready old, and I would guess that the front end allready is weakened a bit by age and a little rust here en there.. So, I really would like to know more about this re-inforcement..
Anyone here know any more details round this ?
