Purchasing full size electrical prints?

Does anyone know a place that I could buy a full size electrical prints for my 1971 250C?
for some reason I have many cut wires in the engine bay, the trunk, the A/c has been removed with the compressor in the trunk.
It would by nice to have a legible hard copy at hand in the garage.
thanks.. Gary

If you can find an electrical diagram just take it to Copy shop and have them make a big one.

(*full size*- that would be 1:1 scale and 18' long......)

The pdf from the service CD is the way to go. You can give it to staples and have it printed as a "D" size drawing to doodle on. -cth

I have a foldout print in my service manual the p.o. (unfortunately) pulled out. Pretty small though.
I will see about getting it blown up.

So, they did not incorporate wire colors on prints until after 2001?

I have the one from my owner's manual on PDF. It's a W111 but might be similar enough to help. You can blow it up as much as you want. PM me if you want it.

On the old schematics, you'll find 2 letter abbreviations for the german color words. You get used to it pretty fast. -cth

I meant to say 1972 above.
I have a print in my MB service manual on the 71 250C. This print has numbers that call out components, but no wire colors, just lines and wire numbers point to point. I bought the MB Electrical Service Manual download file from MB Manuals thinking it would have wire colors, but it showed the same print I had. The prints front 1972 in the downloaded file had wire colors, but I notice none before 1972.

The attached file shows the quality of the prints on the original W114/115 CD. As you can see, it's not that good.
54.5.8 is December 1970 - May 1972
54.5.9 is May 1972 - August 1973

I have two sources for the print, both were from MB factory manuals and neither had wire colors. Thank you for that.
