Hello everyone. Not so long ago I purchased a 1972 220 gasser against my better judgement, but par for the course given the nature of my Mercedes illness. It was obviously very neglected and the care it did receive was from a human, whom, in mechanical capacity, was very deficient. After many piles of funds paid out, and mountains of hours of labor she is nearly ready to go all except for a couple of things. First and foremost, she has a 722.2 transmission WITHOUT any of the innards, besides the needle, behind the Vacuum Modulator!!!!!!!!! It would appear, in virtue of evidence gleaned from EPC that the needle is not one of the right ones for this application. It is a 30 mm, and the smallest one indicated on the EPC is a 39.65mm!!!!! I am a ready buyer for any spare Mod., needle, spring and diaphragm anyone had to spare for this 722.2. Research has revealed that the 722.1 has the same setup. If any of you have something you are willing to part with for this application please leave me a message. Thank you all very much for your time and consideration.
As for the car, I will post pictures once I figure out how to do it for anyone who is interested. ( Transmission functioned very well in forward gears incidentally, even missing part of a clutch pack as well!!!! There was an ugly world in there!!!! One must ask: how did it function, supernatural agency?!!!)

parts found, now cylinder head anomaly

Hello everyone, I found the vac. mod. parts finally, and, fortunately, at a very modest price. Thank you all for your interest. I am now, as per my new post, trying to resolve a problem with the cylinder head. One exhaust valve guide is oversized beyond range, well beyond range. It measures 15.9mm OD. I may have to find another head, rebuildable head that is. Anyone have one? A 115010 chassis. Thank you.
