Hi from Vancouver BC

Hi Everyone, I am am happy to be a part of this site. I hav an 82 300 sd that I have owned for two years. I am a beekeeper/apitherapist helping people with immune system ptroblems focusing on spring allergies or " hay fever". My beekeeping is confined to a hobby show of tewlve hives that bring me my comb honey. I am 70 years old with a wife and two teen age children.
I have had an interest in cars since I could first recognise one. I have never owned a new car and always drive something ten or twelve years and in addition to the MB I have a 90 Volvo 740 GL, a 96 Lada Niva, a 67 Chev one ton flat deck, an 88 Chev 3500 4 wheel drive pick up, and a 80 gmc crew cab, the last two running on propane and the last three running on one farm fleet licence plate.
I very much like my 300sd and have done repair and upgrades to make it a very nice car to drive. I want to learn more about this car and how to maintain and repair it. I hope I can contribute to this forum in a meaningful way and I am very thankful to all who have made it possible.

My 300sd smokes blue. My 82 300sd, 270k, owned and driven daily for last two years and 10k, had always been slow off the mark until I adjusted ALDA ( 1 and 1 half turn counterclock wise) and cleaned banjo bolt and changing filters. The result was a new car except for the fact that now the car SMOKES. Starting from cold the car on acceleration blows voluminous clouds of blue smoke that disappears when up to running temp. At that point if I goose it in park at the high end I get a bit of black smoke incomplete combustion maybe. I did a diesel purge to fillups ago. The car goes like a bomb. No waiting forever for the turbo to cut in. Any comments would sure be appreciated.

The ALDA should probably be turned back 1 1/4 turn.
