2nd try at a diesel

Hello all, I'm the new owner of a 1984 300DT with 234,000 miles on it. Thanks to this forum, I've already replaced the glowplugs that were causing the hard starting and white smoke the previous owner attributed to a worn out engine, and caused him to put a $1,500 price tag on it. This is my second try at a Mercedes diesel, had a 1980 240D with a 4 speed tranny several years ago. Had to sell it because my wife couldn't stand the lack of power.
