W123 200 carburettor fuel filter mistery

Hi there,

Just wanted to make sure

I'm doing maintenance on my Euro w123 200 (m102.920 with Stromberg 175 CD carb) and i'm having a hard time of finding where the main fuel filter is.

So whether there really is no other fuel filter apart from a plastic inline one? The w124 with the same engine has one at the rear underside of the car, but what about w123? Mine is a sedan.

Many thanks and hoping, that there are still some carburated w123 out there.

Before I got into Mercedes, I had a lot of carburetted American cars. They had an inline filter as the only fuel filter, so it's entirely possible that's your only one.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

Many thanks for the replies!

After digging through the whole car and parts catalogues, I can confirm, that there is only an inline filter before the carb and a tank strainer, that bolts in the bottom of the tank. The w124s with the same engine have a different filter setup.

By the way, after all these years the strainer in the tank was pretty clogged up
