It was also visible in the photo that followed this one. (both are in the first page of this thread)

I cleaned the grub off and here's another photo in reasonably high res taken today

The dimensions are 147mm wide and 54mm tall. Both measured to the edges of the black sticker - with no adjustment for any shrinkage over the years.

 

The hydro oil sticker is rather crinkled on mine but I have taken a photo of it and the caution / parking brake but I guess they're in the set you took.

James ... just started my own D200 adventure.  We have a new Harbor Freight that opened here a few months ago ... and one of their grand opening specials was a 1/2" electric impact gun for $19.95.  I figured for $20 I would give it a try.  If you don't know, the real reason they called it a D200 is for the 200 nylon insert lock nuts on a D200, each with a burning desire to skin your knuckles!!  This impact gun just makes me laugh!!  As soon as I squeeze the trigger, the nut is off!!  Sweet!!  Best money I ever spent!  About 90% done with teardown, and NO BLOOD!!!

 

good luck ... bob
