You have a temperature gauge that uses a capillary tube, meaning the "sender" and the braided cable you see with it are all one piece all the way to the gauge. It's not a separate piece - you have to replace it as a unit, that is, the gauge and the capillary tube are a unit.

temp gauge

Perhaps a better source would be a P&P ora EBay buy .NOS can be pricy !

As this gauge is common to all 110, 111 and 112 models a gauge from any one of these models will fit directly.

I was told that the temp gauge on the w110 body style contained mercury, and once line has a hole or broken, the mercury spills out
It's werid, because I swear my temp gauge worked, before I did my restoration, and the line has a small break, and now it doesn't read the temp. Most guys thy have a temp gauge want $195.00. I was going to maybe install an after market gauge if this was true. Can you give me any info???!

Yes, the temp gauges are based on a bulb and capillary tube - so if your tube is cracked it will not work. I had mine repaired in Oz about 2 years ago for about $130 from memory. Do you really want a cheap aftermarket gauge ruiing the look of your car?

NoeCalSL, recently I have posted a way of fixing the teperature unit, if you have not work it you can look to my thread an get your back to work.
They are filled up with ether and not with mercury.
In case your temp unit is not working you can do it your self if wanted by following thr thread.
