Gear shifting on a manual 300TD
What is the best speed (in Km/h) for changing into the 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear on a 4 speed manual gearbox Mercedes W123 with a 3005cmc diesel engine (617.912)?
I'm asking because I find the speedometer markings totally unhelpful (I rarely drive past 70Km/h in the 3rd gear for example). Does anyone have any recommandations based on his experience about this issue?
