1966 W108 250S Bosch Condenser
Looking for a replacement Bosch condenser, but I purchased one that had the wrong rubber connector. Refer to the photo: The one on the left has the original part number (1 237 330 280) and correct, black, rubber connector. The replacement (on the right) does not fit correctly against the shell of the distributor wall. It prevents the bracket from fitting directly against the distributor. Is the original style available?
My parts vendor says this is not even the correct style condenser for the 250S, but that's what I have. He originally sold me a condenser with a single, short, green wire, and no metal mounting bracket, saying that was correct for the W108 250S. In any event, that's not what is on my car. My 1967 250S parts car has a different configuration, so my car may use something similar to the W113 250SL, or similar.
Let me know if you know where to get the one with the connector as shown on the left of the photo.
