My Poor Old 300SDs

I've got two, an 81 and 82. One has an ignition lock problem but ran with vacuum electrical issues (82) and the other much better until today (81).

I started the 81 and all of a sudden for the first time, it made a yucky noise in park, was ok in reverse and drive, but again noisy in neutral. So I came here seeking answers. I love this site. But I haven't started searching yet. I guess I'll start with the transmission fluid check. Of course with that sound I'm afraid to put it in neutral. Maybe I'll find some clues here first.

I've had no problems though after a few tanks of biodiesel b99, gladly, but with the high prices (I haven't made my own), I've had to switch back to stinky old petrol. Well there it is. It's still a nice feeling to drive one of these even though it's got horrid quirks.
