5.6L OVP and some actual information...

Funny thing about all this discussion about wrong parts. The only time I've gotten the wrong part was from my local MB dealer the other week. I bought an OVP and he gave me the one from the 560SEL as opposed to the one from the 560SL. The difference, if I remember correctly is that the SEL version has 2 fuses, the SL has one. Also the size and pin schema are different. In this twist on the story I bought it from a dealer and installed it myself.

If you ever go buy one make sure they have both the vin and the current (old) part number. That is the only way they were able to get the right one. Mail order this part at your own peril...

Steve - I just saw your third or fourth post on this thread in which you said you should probably quit this thread. Maybe we both should have heeded those words, no?

Oh well, at least it has been entertaining ...
