Fit-up and ordering options:
No other modifications are required to run the lager fuel filter with a Toyota power steering pump. Please note that the R150 brazed reservoir line will need to be massaged to fit.
For Mercedes OEM power steering brackets used outside of the Mercedes 300, it is necessary to space the filter head away from the power steering bracket. The "Flat Spacer" can be used for this option.
For OEM Mercedes 300 applications, please select the "Mercedes 300 Spacer" option.
