Tools of the trade.

Who should I talk to to get WIS for the original platform? Which UNIX does it run on? Are there any other Mercedes resources I should know about?

I have a 1983 240D, and a lot of admiration for Mercedes-Benz and how they do things. I'm committed to mechanically restoring this vehicle. I'm not interested so much in competition restoration where you get picky about which parts would have been on the car in 1983. (Who cares?) - My ideal would be to have the car in the same mechanical shape it was when it rolled out of the factory.

So, I'm interested in having any Mercedes tools that will help me in doing that. I'm also happy as can be with UNIX, and prefer it. I do have an ebayed 2DVD set of WIS which I just installed for windows. It doesn't seem have the 240D. Maybe I just need more databases.

I'm completely new to this. If someone can point me in the right direction, I'd thank them and gladly start reading whatever there is.

I've already ordered the MB service manual for W123 chassis cars. Again though, I'm interested in having a complete collection of whatever would be useful in restoring a 1983 240D, or at least in knowing what one would look like. I do intend to rebuild the engine at some point, and I won't be shying away from the hard stuff as long as I have all the tools and documentation possible; and the support of a great community.


Thanks,

Justin
