The 30 plus MB automobile is a labor of love to an extent. Any 30 year old car is. I am a 124 aficionado and will always admire the 603 engine. Can't help it. I want more. Its a fun hobby.

You can use any key that is exactly the right size. Doesn't need to be MB part identified. Woodruff keys just need to be snug to prevent wear.

You could just remove the oxidizer and weld in a pipe - others have done this, I've heard. Since your state exempts diesels built before 97 from smog test, you should be ok. And frankly since the...

I don't believe these clips are used anywhere else on the 124. I tried to find them on ebay but ended up sourcing from the dealer. I don't have the part number unfortunately.
