w116 300sd Air Cleaner bracket/support

1979 300sd with a broken air cleaner bracket.

I have seen some cheap prices on some and some more expensive ones.

The dealer wants an arm and a leg.

Who manufactures the best bracket?

Try I bought a couple from them years ago for about $25 each. They were fine. Some folks have had trouble with Adsit but not me.

The best bracket will be the dealer one.

I did a quick Google and mostly I got back MTC as the supplier. MTC has a spotty rep and I don't recall any chat about that part specifically.

Other than that, this is one part where quality has dropped quite a bit since I had my w116 300sd.

I know that some people have added welds to the cheaper part, or if no welding available have put bolts through to reinforce the welded joins... in search of the old longevity.
