I have tried to adjust the steering box with some success but I believe I have maxed out on adjustment. I have been in contact with a company that refurbish boxes but if gears are worn they will still charge me refurb bearing seals etc but the box will come back with same amount of play ?

Good Morning,

I think the best thing to with your steering box is to go to your local Mercedes commercial dealer the parts required and chassis number to price up the items required.
As to the engine unless you can hear it running and it has water in it buyer beware. The engine should be the same but check the crankshaft fitment, and if fitted the injection pump may have electronic idle control fitted. Also if looks as if its been sitting in a field then walk away could be full of water.
Hope this is of help.

Was the COMMERCIAL CV dealer helpful when he or she was given the part numbers. With the correct numbers they would be able to tell what was in stock at the parts warehouse in Germany and how many on the shelf. They would also be able to do a UK and world parts search to see who has the item.
