Howdy from Ohio fellow Benz-buffs!
Pleased to make your acquaintance.I am currently owner-operator of two diesel panzers from our friends in Stuttgart;a 1984 300 turbodiesel and a 1980 240 d.I have been doing my own maintenance on these trusty war wagons for about 2 years now (I just finished upper control arms,shocks,new brake pads/rotors/calipers,muffler and valve adjustment on the 300d) and have come to appreciate just how forgiving for amateurs an automobile the Germans in their infinite wisdom have created.I am now beginning to move into some of the maintenance items requiring a bit more finesse and proficiency and look forward to sharing my experiences and learning from yours. So heres to busted knuckles,abraded foreheads and brand new unknown noises after you fix the old ones!
