Nor sure where I am on the site - I thought I was introducing myself as a new member.
In frozen Toronto (-20F today with wind chill), and my 1982 300TD won't start. Starter motor only makes a click. I seem to recall having that problem with another model aeons ago and managed to thaw the solenoid/starter and give it a few wallops.
But I am much older now and can't even find the starter motor! There is about a foot of ice and snow on the ground and that is not helping. I have a wee mains heater and if someone could direct me where to put it so I could try and get some heat on to the solenoid/starter, I'd be greatly indebted.
