Mercedes Benz M 100 engines

At Niemöller, we specialise in the sale of Mercedes Benz classic car spare parts. In our online shop, for example, you can order spare parts for the M 100 engine.

The M 100 is the first Mercedes personal car with an eight-cylinder engine which was produced after the war. The engine was used in the 1960s and 70s in the Mercedes 600 and in the Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9.

The M 100 is a water-cooled petrol engine with a camshaft for each cylinder bed and two valves per cylinder. The engine block itself consists of grey cast iron and the cylinder heads are produced from die cast aluminium. With an engine displacement of 6332 cm³ and 1984 kW, the M 100 was installed into the Mercedes 600. In 1975, the engine was available with more engine displacement (6834 cm³) and more output in the model 450 SEL 6.9.

When the Mercedes 600 with 250 HP was brought onto the market, it pushed the English limousines from Rolls Royce into second place in terms of engine output. The Mercedes 600 supposedly trumped everything which had gone before. In production, there was a lot of manual labour which meant a correspondingly long construction time. The Mercedes 600 was produced without regard for financial means. The M 100 in this car didn’t just have to make 2475 kg or 2710 kg move; it also had to drive auxiliary aggregates such as water pumps, ventilators with thermostatically controlled coupling and alternators.

Today, the Mercedes 600 with the M 100 engine is one of the most popular classic cars from Mercedes. In our online shop, you can order the right M 100 spare parts for the Mercedes 600 (W 100). From the engine case to the injection pump right up to the power transmission elements, you can find the right spare part for your Mercedes Benz classic car quickly and easily in the shop.

We can also offer you the right spare parts for M 100 engines for the W 108 and W109.

Nostalgic “Mercedes moments”

How good were those days: us, the little nippers, with the top trump cards in our hands. The one with the top trump in his hand was king. Vehicles of the calibre of a Mercedes Benz 450 SEL 6.9 had the quality of being one. 286 HP, 550 NM torque, at that time, the highest torque of any German personal vehicle, a top speed of 225 km/h and reached 100 km/h in just 7.4 seconds. My, my, that was the genuine article! If any of the other players still wanted to protest, they were quickly and convincingly defeated with the argument: “My 6.9 also has air suspension!” Then there was peace and the winner was decided.

Do you still remember that sweets advert … the sweets with the delicious caramel taste? Yes, those! And now, close your eyes for a moment and imagine sitting on your grandfather’s lap and he is talking about Aunt Elisabeth’s /8 and his first Mercedes Benz, a W180 which the family took on their first Austrian holiday. And at some point, as if nothing had happened, he asks, with a telling smile: “And, my boy, shall we go for a ride in the Mercedes (the grandfather then had a tail fin)?” What do you think the boy thought, his eyes lighting up at the thought?

Over the last decades, Mercedes Benz designed many automotive gems which people are still talking about today. Although with the small difference that these little rascals grew up a long time ago and yet are still children at heart. Their hearts suddenly beat faster when, from nothing, a 280SE C, a tail fin, or perhaps even a wing door model turns around the street corner, or when, at Bensheim castle, for example an SSK trumpets from afar like a formidable baritone.

In the meantime, the small boy has become a grown up image of a man who knows that today it holds something … not just for the memories, but something much more beautiful: he overcame the child within and first enjoyed Aunt Elisabeth’s /8 and then grandfather’s tail fin, with which he linked so much experience, but you already heard that, even then.
With all this emotionally charged enthusiasm for the past decades of automobile culture from Sindelfingen, it isn’t just the fans, but also the notorious complainers out of your “friendship circle” who speak up and say: “You already know that the fenders look nasty, you need new hydraulic tubes, your pontoon joint shafts need done, right?”

How good are those days: …but we are not alone. As well as Ifam (Interessengemeinschaft für alte Mercedes-Fahrzeuge), MVC (Mercedes Veterans Club), Retro Classica, Techno Clasica and Vetrama, there are many valuable addresses: these are enthusiasts who have made a job out of their passion. There is an address that has to be mentioned: Mr Niemöller and his team in Mannheim. As early as the 1970s, this began to grow into what has become an institutional address for lovers of old Mercedes Benz cars today. The company does not just offer spare parts, it also reproduces them. “We don’t have it”, doesn’t exist there. Do you need a back light for a pontoon? Niemöller has it! Do you need an air channel for your 190 SL? Not a problem!

And thus, the circle continues in a harmonious fashion. What once was, is today more than ever: “ a historic Mercedes in front of your door and Niemöller Mercedes Benz classic car spare parts will tidy it up for you.”
PS: The 6.9 described at the beginning has a clear nickname among the nippers: Löffelmann’s hunting dog. This is sufficient as a slogan for everyone to understand that the writing was on the wall.

Rubber seals for classic cars

Winter-proof your classic car with new rubber seals

Colourful leaves, grey rainclouds and a cold wind: it’s clear that autumn has taken hold! As the days get shorter, it gradually becomes time to prepare your classic car and its rubber seals such as window gaskets and edge protection profiles for the cold season. Many classic cars are not moved during the winter months to prevent damage caused by frost and road salt. But before you get your car ready for hibernation, you should get it into shape once more so that it’s ready to drive again in the spring.

Niemöller rubber seals

Rubber seals in particular such as window gaskets and edge protection profiles should be checked regularly as these have a particularly sensitive reaction to cold and can become porous. In our online shop, www.gummiprofile-oldtimer.de, you will find everything you need related to rubber seals: rubber gaskets, convertible top seals, keder strips, window gaskets, foam rubber profiles and much more, with a large selection for classic car models too.

Wind and waterproof on the go with the ideal edge protection profile and window gaskets

Window gaskets for classic cars – discreet yet indispensable

Practical window gaskets are used to protect Mercedes Benz classic cars (and of course, also other makes of car) and their passengers. These are discreet components consisting of smooth plastic which are applied to windows (front and rear windscreens).

Window gaskets are predominantly made from rubber, plastic, felt, or sometimes from metal. They perform various functions. Although this spare part seems very inconspicuous, no Mercedes Benz classic car would get by without window gaskets. In the end, window gaskets ensure that passengers are protected from external influences and that the chassis does not sustain weather-related damage.

The necessity of window gaskets is emphasised by three main functions:

1. The window gasket protects the interior from external influences such as rain, dust particles, cold air and heat.

2. A further task is fastening the windows. The window gasket holds the window safely in place and prevents vibration-related noises. In addition, it holds the window in such a way that protects it from breakage, for example when the doors are slammed.

3. Window gaskets prevent moisture, not just from entering the car interior, but also in many cases from getting into the chassis as well. This keeps the car safe from rust for as long as possible, which significantly prolongs the service life of your vehicle.

The window gaskets available in our shop are sold in units, unlike our goods sold by the metre. They are ideal as a retrofitted product and you can even install them yourself. Thanks to their flexibility, they have consistently changed to suit daily stress.

The summer is an especially good time to replace worn or broken window gaskets. Take a look in our shop, we’re sure to have the right spare part for you! You will also find what you need for side or triangular windows with our collection of rubber seals, regardless of whether these are sold by the unit or by the metre.

By the way: To ensure you can enjoy the use of your window gasket for a long time, we have put together some useful tips to look after rubber seals.

Mercedes S-Class spare partsThe array Mercedes W108 was equipped as standard with a 4 gear manual but Mercedes offered an automatic gearbox for large requirements and more extravagance.

Emphasized by its innovative technics the Mercedes W 108  was able to establish itself on national and international markets. To have the continuing ability to compete against the others on the market, Mercedes Benz started a further development and created a manual transmission with 5 gears for all cars with six cylinder engine. The models 250S and 280S were well equipped and performed between 130 and 140 ps. Later on Mercedes improved its cars and released the SE-versions. They were featured with mechanical injection pumps. While Mercedes Benz was able to reduce fuel consumption, they could increase their performance by 20 ps at the same time.

The interior design is related to high standards as well. Mercedes Benz set a benchmark, which is still in demand today: smooth leather, pure wood and fine blanket.

One of the most famous appearances of the black Mercedes S280 (Series W108) occurred in the movie „James Bond 007-Octopussy“ by EON Productions Ltd. Only after 18 years, in 1983, Bond was authorized to drive this car.

Mercedes Braking System

Mercedes Braking Systems – Parts for the Classic Mercedes Benz

Mercedes Benz has been manufacturing cars for over one hundred years. During that time the company has been the innovator in many design changes and upgrades. Automobiles from Mercedes are now known as the best and safest around the world. As models progressed throughout the years Mercedes Benz has continued to be in the forefront of technology.

Of all the automotive systems that have been improved over the years probably none have advanced as much as the braking systems. Earliest cars had mechanical brakes that forced the cars to stop abruptly by causing the wheels to stop turning. While it was very effective in stopping the car, it was also dangerous and provided a rather severe ride. Therefore hydraulic systems were designed and introduced to allow vehicles to slow down while stopping more gradually and in a safer manner.

Mercedes Benz and other manufacturers introduced the first hydraulic braking systems in the early part of the twentieth century. By the mid-twenties cars with four- wheel hydraulic systems were appearing on the market. Mercedes Benz offered these braking systems as a safety feature on its touring cars around this time.

Mercedes Oldtimer braking systemsAs braking systems evolved over time, the number of parts increased greatly. Braking systems are pedal operated; however the pedal in the car really has no direct connection to the apparatus that causes the car to stop. Braking is accomplished when hydraulic fluid is pushed through tubes that connect the fluid reservoir to the shoes or calipers that operate the pads which create friction at each wheel and slow the car down.

Finding parts for old time Mercedes braking systems can be a challenge. The drums, rotors, calipers, drum shoes and hydraulic lines are all vital parts. Many parts are reproduced and others are only available in used or remanufactured parts. Restoration brake parts for Mercedes from the mid-forties through the seventies can be found in the catalogs of Mercedes Benz vintage cars of a German supplier offering new and used parts. A visit to their website; https://www.niemoeller.de/en/mercedes-benz-oldtimer-spare-parts/catalogs , will assist hobbyists and restorers in the search for classic braking parts.
