New 1995 E300 Diesel Owner

I just bought a green, 1995 E300 Diesel. Got the car checked out by a mechanic and was told it was in good shape. It has the usual issues of droopy headliner and leaking AC evaporator. I just got the headliner fixed and am going to try recharging the AC before forking out the $2000 to change the evaporator. We live in Hawaii so we need the AC.

The fuel lines were recently replaced because they were leaking but I don't think they put on the bio-diesel lines.

I am hoping to get the AC going, upgrade the stereo to something with built in bluetooth and Ipod stuff (although I like the Weather Band). Eventually I would like to get the fuel lines changed so I can use biodiesel B100.

So does anyone know where I could get a sop manual that would help me to start doing the maintenance myself?

Also, right now the AC fans in the front of the car aren't working. I had the AC charged but they still didn't come on. I put 12 volts on them and they spin fine. It is definitely not the fuse so I am thinking it might be a relay or something. Has anyone had that experience and if so is there an easy fix?

thanks and nice to meet you all.
