300SDL oil cooler lines

What is a source for new oil cooler lines? I do not see them on the normal parts sites and the dealer sites list them at close to $500 for the set?

From the number of 1980's Diesel Mercedes still on the road out here I would have to say the availability of parts for them is due to the large number of them having been sold and the numbers still on the road.

As we pushed into the later dates I believe less and less diesels were sold which means less supplies in the US willing to sell the parts.

For me the easiest way is to get the Mercedes part numbers for the item/s I am looking for and then use that to search with. Some part sources give you the Mercedes Part number.

I am not adverse to getting things on eBay or similar places if I know the make of the item is a decent quality.

It might end up that you have to pay more then you want to to get decent quality.

Thumbs up

Remove and have them rebuilt with original fittings at a well equipped hydraulic shop. I do this on really oddball vehicles like that... like my E23 BMW 745i. The 300SD I just bought new aftermarket lines, they were about $100 for the set only.

$500 for OEM does not surprise me, around 14000 300SDLs were built. You are way overthinking it.
I'm not a doctor, but I'll have a look.

Six others from BMW, GM, and Ford.

Oil cooler lines can be rebuilt by a hose/hydraulic shop. You drive a 300SDL so you won't have as many parts available as the W123. In these cases shops/rebuilds is an option. $500 is not bad as a dealer option to be honest, they are made to last 30+ years.

Ask them for a vintage discount, at some dealers I get a 10-15% discount.
