RE: Mercedes diesel in old truck???
200 ponies out of old 5-cylinders?
Good luck, the 300 td is 112 HP and generally not worth messing with it, unless you have several of them to play with.
Than on the other hand my friend is having like 30-years old MB bus. One of those used in the airports with about 20-people capacity.
It is powered with old 240, what is I think has about 80 HP.
Bus might not be rubber burner, but it gets to the places and you can't beat economy and reliability.
