220D new owner, block heater question

So I recently acquired a 1970 220D that I have been doing some work on. Replaced the interior(came with a parts car) changed the oil filter, fuel filters and did an injection purge, replaced the front windshield and rear window seals, still need to adjust the valves.

I am wanting to put in a block heater, I got the threaded freeze plug out but I can't find anyone who sells the threaded adapter so that I can use the Mercedes OEM block heater. I ordered a 38mm aftermarket block heater but it sticks out to far and interferes with the throttle linkage. Does anyone know of a place that sells a threaded adapter like the one in the picture? I tried Autohauz, they said that theirs came with an adapter but it didn't and it is the kind that sticks out to far. After calling them back they say they no longer sell the one in the picture.

I don`t know if you can just buy the adaptor. looking on the buy parts tab above, shows this for your year model.

part# W0133-1619895

I know when I bought the one for our 85 300D probably 10 yrs ago, it came with that adaptor.

It is most likely metric, so a hard ware store wouldn`t have it, or a Home Depot type store.

Thanks for the reply. I ordered one from Peach Parts already, it did not come with the adapter and they said they don't carry the adapter anymore.

Bummer.
I was doing some Google searches, and can`t find the adaptor.

Isn`t the threaded hole in the block larger than the threaded part of the heater? wonder why one part is sold w/o the other?

More and more parts for these old cars are NLA.

have you read the thread of the Unobtanium parts?

Did you try the dealer?
Part Number 6062000096 Part Name BLOCK HEATER MSRP $142.00

Picture here. It doesn't seem to have the ring you are looking for.

Here is a used one with the adapter on it..
Mercedes 9002034895 Engine Block Heater | eBay

FYI: you can also use the E300 Turbo Diesel block heater, it does not need the adapter.

The one from the dealer does not come with the adapter. I called classic Mercedes they thought that the only way you could get the adapter is to order the block heater from the dealer.

I bought the one on ebay, hopefully I can get the adapter off.
