Gents,

Does anyone knows which is the specific name of the filter in the fuel line between the fuel banjo and the primer?

My 406 has an air leak and I believe this filter is causing the problem. The rubber seal is damaged and I want to replace it, but could not find out which is the part name. Here are some pics:

I was told that there exist a transparent filter which looks like a glass probe. Is this easy to find for a 406?

Regards,

Luis

Hola Luis,

That part is known as the pre-filter.

If you want the rubber seal ring for the assembly, order part number A 000 477 1360 from Mercedes-Benz in Chile. This is the rubber seal ring up inside the assembly.

If you want a completely new assembly, order part number A 001 477 8001.

Buena suerte,

Asked by Kauffman in the filter complete with glass vase

Serious fun to devote a whole day to review the mechanics of MOG

Thanks guys,
I've requested a quotation to local dealer, Kaufmann. I'll let you know how this ends.
What about replacing the old fuel lines with Viton lines?
Do I have to connect straight pipes from each component to each other (i.e. pre-filter to twin filters)? I've seen that my fuel lines are amended. It's a mixture of metal lines and rubber lines with plenty of washers.
crappy fittings
I suppose these are fittings, but probably there are some of you who would recommend to leave a connection in case of...?!?
Any comment?
Cheers,
Luis

Sean,
Thanks alot for the PN, but local dealer didnt have the kit, and, my friend saggcl went to a local mechanic specialized in Argentinean Mogs and got the rubber and the spring.
Now my fuel line problems are gone, the ignition is straightforward and I can focus on the accelerator throttle, my next step.
It's amazing what a rubber ring can do in your life :)
Best reagards, have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Friends BenzWorld

I tell them that my friend Luis unfortunately has not had very good experience with the services authorized Mercedes Benz

And even despise the look of the mechanic to submit acknowledges that it has a knowledge and stock of spare parts available that you can not imagine

I think the regulation of the throttle, accelerator and pump are major tasks, which requires a specialist and equipment, as you for that comment I think is best Soc.Comercial Eberlein y Cia. Ltda

I take this occasion to offer all friends of BenzWorld who is Chilean, and helping to bring in any negotiations with our super Unimog specialist and supplier of spare parts and tires (low prices), because if you go alone, literally 'll live to eat

Gents,
I ended up buying a noname prefilter. here is the picture. I'm planning to replace the lines with Viton and keep the old (but working) prefilter as a spear part.

I've been planning a better prefilter for my U-1300, too. Just bought a Racor 490R2430 cartridge type water separator and filter. It has a primer pump and a 24 v fuel heater as part of it. I didn't realize such a combination was available.

I see fuel filters available with anywhere from 2 micron to 30 micron particle trapping capabilities. Obviously the smaller the better, but has anyone had trouble with the smaller particle filters plugging too easily?...but that is the purpose, to catch the particles, isn't it...

BTW, if anyone's interested, I was contemplating this Racor 110 (ebay 290291554484) before the Racor 490 model came up. I know nothing about it but the price is still good.

It's not too hard to make a banjo bolt like that. Just measure the diameter required, choose a bolt length that puts the threads in the right distance from the head, and drill it down the middle. Then put in cross drillings at the right places. The "nut" that fits over the bolt, as to atach a fuel line, can also be fabricated easily. Bore the threads out of the nut, drill into one flat for desired tubing size, and braze it in. Add copper washers at the right places. I've made half a dozen banjo combos for my 404's with nothing more than a vise and hand drill.

Excellent info. Takes one heck of a steady hand... Will keep this in mind, and put in in the DIY part of the Ulitmate Sticky.

After deciding where and how to move the prefilter, I had to find someone to make a custom banjo bolt and bought an adapter to connect the prefilter to the primer. This is how is coming up...
Looks like the one that is on the 352A pumps. (glass and filter is missing in the photo) Should work just fine.
