On the other car make forums I've belonged to over the years, there was often a thread to post parts sales etc, not by the poster but just things they've come across.

No affiliation etc, no guarantees, if you see something someone might be interested in post it.

If there's any forum rule issues with this please delete it.

This is why I brought this up, I came across this:

Mercedes Benz W126 4G-Tronic Automatic Transmission $175 in Ohio

And a seller on Amazon still shows 4 ea of the Swag camshaft sprocket gears that are apparently no longer made, 1160520601

Anything else interesting out there?

Might we include the URLs for these items please? Or have I been mistaken?

Thanks

I can, I prefer the entire description and / or part number in case the URL changes, but will add them from here out.

EHA orings: uxcell Fluorine Rubber O Rings, 10mm OD, 6.2mm Inner Diameter, 1.9mm Width, Seal Gasket Green 10Pcs: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

Did I mention, those front rotors on Rock are a very good deal? But Rock is messed up. In order to get the closeout price you have to go through the 'rss' feed if you know what I mean? The little orange button next to where it says the engine size, click that, then click it again next to 'love a bargain?' - if it doesn't work once, try it again later, maybe it'll work? Weird.

Looking for a new gas cap gasket I found these new complete gas caps for not much more - I offered $10 and accepted the sellers counter of 12.50


And a note - the gas tank strainer for my 420sel is discontinued. Better get one while the gettin's good!

For years I've had what looks like black mold growing out of the fuel flap area. Is this from ethanol fumes getting past the cap gasket?

Gosh I'm sorry Drew I have no idea. I'd start a thread on it.

The gas cap I mentioned above came in, the finish is rough and flat (not shiny) - any idea if this is correct? My old cap is both smooth and shiny.

Hey Pete,

Both my Gen2 SECs have a different shaped cap than the one pictured in the Ebay ad.
They appear like this one in the pic and the finish is identical.
