Hi to everyone.
I was wondering whether i could get some parts help.
I am having the heads for my 77 Euro 350SLC rebuilt
and i need some camshafts. Unfortunately the mercedes
dealer wants $600 and $700 per camshaft, this is kind of expensive considering Performance sells 450SL camshafts for $250. The dealer refuses to give any part numbers (of course) so i was wondering where i can purchase the part book for my car... so i can find out the MB number for
the parts i need.
Maybe i can get the camshafts through FastLane?
(i already requested info)

Thanks a lot for your help

116 051 58 01 left and 116 051 59 01 right, they are definitely different than any American model. As far as getting a parts book for that Euro car good luck! You would stand a better chance in getting the Micro film like I use here but then you need to buy a Micro Fiche reader which are kind of expensive.

The correct OE(euro) cam Part numbers are 116-051-58-01 left, & 116-051-59-01 right. I'm sure that even the later 420SEL cams will work with the correct cam bearings.
