Alda caps for 300SDL, I have 3 to sell

I have 3 nicely machined caps to fill the 'hole' when you are intending to remove the Alda on your 300SDL. I don't know if it will fit any other IP too.
If someone is interested I'll sell them for $15 including shipping in the US. Please drop me a note at werminghausen@gmail.com. Martin

Those look nice. You must have a small toolroom lathe at home no?

I'd use a bit of Loctite on the threads.

I do believe that I've made a $15.00 mistake by not doing same..........

Blue?

Have you removed the ALDA from your 617? I have had mine off for years now.

I'm sure that will be fine.

The 617 still has the ALDA. It's got so much low end pull that I don't see any need to remove it. Below 40 mph, it pulls harder than the 603 at a given pedal position. Above 40, the 603 walks away from it.

Have you adjusted the unit on you 617? I had mine maxed out then just opted to pull it off before I installed new injectors. The injectors drastically increased performance and if my odometer worked, I am sure fuel economy has increased too.
