Need 1983 Mercedes 300D Hirschman antenna wiring diagram

Hello Charles

Need 1983 Mercedes 300D Hirschman antenna wiring diagram

I found your email in a forum post that's about 5 years old. I'm looking for a couple of wiring diagrams to connect a different Hirschman antenna for my 1983 Mercedes 300D (purchased new in 1983). I've replaced the mast before but now the problem seems to be in the power unit - factory original Hirschman 485 SN 371 17 metal housing. The antenna lead screws into a cast Y at the top of the unit. The unit has a power lead with a six pin connector wired: 1-red with orange stripe, 2-yellow and green stripe, 3-brown, 4-not used, 5-black, 6-blue.

I found a working unit that I thought would work at a local salvage yard (Plastic housing, Hirshman F-489, 40 105 08 02, 201 82 0175). The antenna lead connects the same way but it grounds to the body differently and uses a different size 6 pin connector and the wire colors are different: 1-white, 2-red, 3-not used, 4-black, 5-blue, 6-brown.
Looks like I could rewire if I knew what to connect maybe there is an adapter plug?

I'm replacing the car after 25 years reliable service by giving it to my grandson for his first car. A good working radio is a high priority for him so I'll probably replace the original Becker - still works but the display doesn't show all of the characters.

Can you offer any assistance or refer me to a link, etc?
