    That will be the casting number which rarely (if ever) corresponds to the part number.

    Re: Steering Column Fastening Flange

    From online dealers. To add more to the confusion, the part is listed as optional in ‘D’ manual.

    Alan,

    Seems they didn’t do the greatest job matching up the advance curve for our cars. The last option F looks better to me with our 30 degrees of total advance starting a little low and ending...

    Jeff,

    The first carburetor check I would suggest is to remove the covers and verify the level is 2 to 3 mm higher than the central divider. That will tell if you're getting fuel, if one of the...

    Re: No start and running out of ideas

    Doesn’t 111 350 02 75 include the housing and rubber bushing as one piece? It’s been twenty years but that’s my memory of the part.

    Re: Registry Question and New Owner Info

    7503270 would be considered by most as a '57 regardless of the year registered or sold. The last production car in '57 was 5703352. Ivory is one of my favorite 190sl colors.
