Howzit! Total newbie, :-)

Hey guys, I'm from Cape Town, South Africa. Just bought a W123, 1982 230e (with half of what should be under the hood in the boot) yesterday. So, here's to me figuring out how everything fits together! Managed to get the driver's side Engine mounting fastened, the sump fitted and the timing cover back on today. tomorrow, I'm hoping get more than three things going. Seem to have all the mechanical parts that still needs to go on. Car is still the original "cream" colour, but needs a respray as the 28 year old paint job is flaking only on the fenders. Slight rust on the front passenger side fender. Interior looks very neat as well. Tell you one thing though, for someone who doesn't know where to start looking for help online, a diagram or photo of a M102.980 engine is hard to find! (or workshop manual for that matter)
