New member, longtime owner (190D w/456k)

Ive had diesels for years; I bought & sold VW Rabbits to help pay for college. Later, my first MB was a 1974 240D; I traded a Cadillac to my dad for the 240D & a GM Diesel, and so my love affair was started.
Ive had several others -- 1972 240 gas, 1989 190 2.6, but my favorite is my daily driver: 1989 190D, now with 456k (I bought it with 186k on it 14.5 years ago). Just today I went to a 'yard to replace the drivers seat, and was looking for advice here on how to remove the stubborn 4th screw on the drivers seat rail. After much effort, and more cursing, its still there, so tomorrow will be its day of reckoning. -Kris Pihl, Portland, Oregon
