300D flywheel worth?

What are 300D manual transmission flywheels worth? Not looking for an exact figure but a ballpark idea. Anybody have an experience buying or selling one? I have the opportunity to possibly buy one for a decent price. I don't really need it, I just don't want to pass it up as i know they are as rare as hens teeth.

Factory price is $500 so anything lower than that is good.

I was under the impression that they are no longer available from the factory?

They're available. I just bought one last month. If I hadn't I'd have to beat the information out of you as to where this decent-priced one is.

You're not a BIG guy, are ya'? eek...

I paid $300 for mine, since it was local. they were cheaper on german ebay but the shipping made up more than the difference

I tried my local MB dealer over a year ago and they flat out said they were no longer available, not here nor in Germany.
How can they all of the sudden become available again?

There is a search engine on the classic center site with part numbers.

http://et.mercedes-benz-clubs.com/mbc/welcome?locale=en

I believe it is listed as A6170300530 but I know it exists as 617 030 00 05 because I had to repeat it to people so many times.

There is also 617 032 00 01 which does exist and I have one in my car.

Ok i got the parts today. Got a pretty good deal on them. They came out of a 84 4 speed euro that suffered a front end collision. Part # on the flywheel is 6170320001. I am probably going to sell the flywheel and driveshaft so expect an ad in the parts section soon.

Part number A6170300530 is only for the counter-balance. A6170300005 is for the flywheel, which does not come up on the MB site.

For what it's worth, I have heard that the part number stamped into the wheel is not necessarily the specific application's part number but rather a general flywheel raw stock number. I cannot recall what number was stamped on my flywheel and now it's hidden by my transmission.

no worries on the part number, it is obvious when you look at the part. the ring of material on the outside is much larger on the 300D flywheel than the 240D flywheel. you can spot the 300D part from 20ft away

I have never had any luck with the classic center, if they even suspect you are trying to modify a US spec car to euro they clam up and stop answering emails and calls.
