Well there is OE - which is original - probably Mercedes Classic Center only ? not sure
OEM - meets original specs and quality - most suppliers have these, but not all

If they are not OE or OEM, just take a look from time to time. You should be fine since you have been driving . Mine literally failed in less than 100 miles. I was new to the world of fixing up old cars, learned my lesson .... good luck

Thanks for the tip, I will definitely keep my eye on it. This is my first venture into the world of fixing up old cars ;-)

Parts here are so hard to find and/or import....

Thanks,Cairo.

The OEM (for decades) has been a company called Phoenix (now part of Continental) whose specialty is rubber mounts and air suspension for trucks and busses.
https://www.meinert-hamburg.de/en/Vibration_technology/MEGI.php
Their w110 mb mounts are not available on the aftermarket however.
If one looked close on the original mount one'd see the logo or/and MEGI name


Sachs/Boge/Lemfoerder used to offer mounts for w110/111/tec. but I was not sure about their quality and where they were made so I got the OEM ones years ago. At that time Sachs/Boge offered only the right mount ...but in packs of 5 pieces (!).

The old mount on the photo looks like a w115 mount but I might be wrong.

I am pretty sure that your local MB dealer would have been able to order the mounts for you.
I agree with meltedpanda - concerning the rubber parts (mounts, windshield seals , boots etc., propeller shaft flex disks )- no aftermarket part could match the original.

This makes a lot of sense as the engine in my W110 is a OM615.940 and I believe that it came from a 10 years younger W115, although that is just a guess. I have no history on the car.

I inspected the new parts again, and I do not see any identifying markings. The transmission mount has only the word VORN with an arrow, which I assume is German for FRONT. I will definitely report back here if I see any degradation.
