I recently bought a partially restored 200GE and have been dedicating some work which I undertake myself to its maintenace and restoration. This forum has been a great aid towards fixing some of the problems I found as well as finding suppliers of spare parts.
Recently the water pump with OEM 1022011801 broke down and I am loooking for a substitute and found options by Hella, Dolz and Saleri in Italy, but I am not really sure if they would be adequate substitutes.
Even though my G is rare and only sold in Italy I wondered if anybody here had any input on this problem.
hi enrique .
the 200GE is in most parts similar to the 230GE , the 200GE was build as there have been taxes in italy which have been cheaper for cars under 2,0 liter , no other reason as i know .
there are 2 different types of water pump avail for the 200/230GE , one is with a cone like shown in my pics ( this is an aftermarket part i have ) the other version is with a big bolt in the middle .
i think the other version was sold from MB only .
