choke/thermostat 62 mercedes 220 se

my mechanic at Burback Motors (Portland) told me I needed a new choke/thermostat for my 62 220 SE but they don't make them anymore and it is not compatible with newer models 63 on. Anyone have any suggestions??

Are you talking about the thermostat on top of the injection pump?

I would try the Mercedes Classic Center (Tom Hanson), or Gus at Pacific Fuel Injection.

The EPC shows 001 203 61 75, which might be the one for your car. I was able to get a price ($1090), which generally means they are available.

Good luck,

SLS in Germany doesn't have it, although they do have the housing. How do you know what yours is bad? The range of motion on mine when heated is VERY small, and I've been told that is correct. I would like more information on this topic as well.
