I'm Mark from Sutter, Illinois. I'm an industrial automation technician/electrician for ADM (where we produce fry oils for KrispyKreme, Sonic, BurgerKing, and several others), but really kinda dabble in all sorts of construction and automotive trades. I'm seriously looking at buying a MB 300D for a veggie conversion (already had a run-in with folks on THAT thread, hehe). Although I'm a shadetree mechanic, I'm not too knowledgable about diesels, and certainly not MBs (remember my login name?) I found one that I like, and am intrigued buy the differences in systems on this car than any one I've ever worked on. I'll have several questions about this 1983 300D-T, with 175,000 miles, that I'll post here later this evening. Nice site here, looking forward to meeting y'all.
