New Ohioan, 1987 300SDL Owner

Hey all,

Glad to be here. Just moved back to Cleveland after 12 years without a car in NY. I've already read a few good tips for consideration on my vehicle.

Bought the car for relatively little (less than a transmission rebuild, which I've discovered), has a good engine, pretty good interior and a rustless undercarriage. Am eventually going to convert the car to veggie-oil; though that project is quite a ways off.

The mechanics were awed that after so many miles (we're close to the 500K km badge) that most of the original equipment was still intact. A testament to the engineering of these cars. Aside from the lies regarding the transmission, I'm fine with my purchase.

Hoping to continue getting good info here. I started another thread about interchangeable transmissions, from 300SD's to the SDL's...hopefully someone will answer.
