Sorry, I have been away for a few days. M-B supply a "plastic" ball joint in "recent" years rather than the original metal ones. I have not bought any new rods and have preferred to buy steel ball joints, L and RH thread from a hardware supplier than to use the "plastic" ones. The only reason I can think of as to why the rod would be about a 1/4" shorter is because the plastic socket ends are longer than the original steel ones. The thing that matters is the length between the centres of the ball joints.

Yes Paul-NL I will send you a picture. I might be wrong, but what is the difference between "Euro Model" and US-delivered?

Art thanks for the response.

No, about the look of the the "ring" from the horn on the steeringwheel ...

As far as my data reaches, is yours an US-delivered car on 4 dec 1968 and the first owner was Mr J D Zink ....

I have in your case no info about the colour nor from the interior ...

US-version




non-US-version (chromed)

Paul, the date is correct, but I am not sure about the original buyer. As for being US-Delivered I am not sure as it has all the features of euro model down to the rear lamp with 5 bulbs and the front headlight with city lights in the beam. Also, I have to consult the euro model wiring schematic rater than US model.

It is the chromed version, as per your picture. I might be wrong, but I think someone mention that early models were euro models disguised as US models.

When we talked about "euroversion" in the past, then it mostly went about the POWER output from the motor.

All cars until Vin 109-018-12-002840 have the stronger euroversion motor, which has a higher compression ratio,

From that VIN 002840 all the US-delivered cars had an reduced compressionratio with less power.

When you have the datacard, then you can see in the codes if you have a US-spec car or elsewhere ..

I have made this topic "sticky", because it is basically a technical article, despite some distractions toward the end. The fact that it has been read about 9000 times despite being buried for two years and I am currently being asked about detail in it seems to warrant the move. It also contains input from Chris Johnson which is always worth reading. Chris has not posted for a couple of years which is a great loss. If anyone has any objection, please let me know.
