Is there a part number library?

Hi All you gear heads,

I'm going to get a new to me spare aluminum oil pan because of Murphy's law. If I don't have one I will need one and if I do the need will disappear.

My question is this. Is there a library or database that has all the part numbers so I don't get the wrong spare pan.

I know that a hand full of model years oil pans fit my car. How would I know which ones fit and which ones don't?

FYI
Its a 91 350 SD with the 3.4 liter 6 cylinder engine.

How about "EPCnet Online is the official Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC site for hosting spare parts documentation for Mercedes-Benz cars and light trucks sold in the USA"?

Best thing is its free.... EPC-net Online

Anyone else have issues with creating an account for the EPC? It always says that it cannot complete my registration, I have tried it on 3 different browsers and 2 different networks.

The epc is old German IT stuff.

It's very strange. As are the FSM on cd-rom.

I've heard anything newer than windows xp is going to have problems. Will not work with Macs. I have Java six also, any newer Java won't work, as I've heard.

I have a certain amount of space on the iMac [snow leopard] dedicated to VMware Fusion (xp pro) for this specific purpose and use Firefox there.

Still I get confusing info at times.

I can no longer print anything out, among other issues.

The link below is no where near as good as the real EPC but as people have so much trouble getting on to it (even startek say that your subscription begins only after you've managed to log on!!!!) here's a stripped down racing snake alternative

EverythingBenz - Mercedes-Benz Forum and Web Search Using Google

The problem with this "Russian EPC" is that the part numbers only usually tally with the first picture of a series...


...I also wouldn't be getting too worried about an oil pan - but then again that's probably why I'm so often a victim of sod's law.

I buy tools on the principle that there is ultimately a maximum saturation of 10mm and 13mm sockets - so I can always find one when I need it. To date I haven't found what it is. All of my storage space is full of tools - no room for spares!

Last time (month or so ago) I renewed my subscription I too had problems with the system refusing my request. I tried several times then sent an email to EPC. Someone there updated the subscription -- but then my system requests kicked in -- so now I have something like a three years' subscription.

EPC is probably based on ancient technology and someone has made the decision to not spend any money keeping it up. The parts people at my local dealer have confided to me that they have problems too, from time to time.

Keep trying, it will eventually accept you.

It's always been a general failure for me too. I've pretty well given up on it. They should know this by the usage #'s.

Diesel Dork might find more use for a Hollander exchange catalog if it were accurate for MB. There's a recent thread about this started by a fellow planning to open a used MB parts business but it offers more questions than answers.

Specific to the OP, I don't think there's a dedicated repository of information that states either a W126 86-87 SDL or W140 SD oil pan will fit a W126 90-91 SD/L. Well, there is but probably isn't useful outside gsxr's skull

Hollander is no where near as complete.

Aftermarket oil pans are inexpensive - at least for the SD. Perhaps check this site.

EPC works for me on my 2-year old HP desktop PC.

Windows 8/Firefox/latest Java

I am about due for a renewal, thanks for the heads up.

Be sure to get the legit version of Java from java.sun.com.

One word of warning when installing Java, pay attention to what it is asking you to do. Some of the steps involve adding crapware to your computer, like switching your browser to use Ask Jeeves instead of your favorite search engine, and trying to install a crappy trial of MacAfee anti virus. You can opt out of this junk, but the proper choice is not the obvious one, and if you just keep clicking next you are going to end up with a diaper load on your computer. Sun has totally sold out and has resorted to dirty tricks to raise revenue when you install Java.

I think only the 617 lower pan is available from the aftermarket. The 603.96 main oil pan MSRP is $490. I imagine the 603.970 oil pan is about the same. With apologies to site sponsors, Potomac German has one for $180. I see used 603.971 (W140 SD) pans for $120 at other places. The .971 pan will fit in place of a .970 pan.
