I have a 67 M-B Model 200 that needs a lot of work. Does anybody knows if the front calipers can be changed with any of the 80's Model 200 calipers?

Any help from any of the more knowledgable members would be most appreciated.

Or does anyone know of a good parts shop that might have brake service parts for this oldtime car? I really don't know what to do with this old thing.

Not anywhere near PJ, unfortunately. Any chance you can ask him when you visit him next? I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, guy. I will try to get the service kit thought I am not sure where I can get them. I know most if not every caliper can be serviced but the problem is getting that kit. One problem is that the caliper has next to no markings which makes identifying it really difficult.

Does your mechanic know which other Mercedes' caliper might fit? I might have to go that route. I am thinking I might just buy a cheap '80s Model 200 and put almost the whole front end into this car. It is driving me nuts.
