New Massachusetts 300D owner

I just got a 1981 300D in decent shape for a very good price. It had been sitting for 6 years, and with a good cleaning, new battery, drained tank (17 gallons of old diesel), new fuel strainer, prefilter and fuel filter as well as 7 gallons of fresh fuel and a fuel filter bleeding, she started up after some cranking, and has run like a top since then. A ball joint and idler arm bushing later, and the car is on the road, registered and inspected.

I learned about these cars from my late father inlaw, who purchased a 1985 300D turbo diesel here in Massachusetts in 1993 and had me drive and repair it for a year before shipping it to him. I'm a happy camper.
