Newbie with 300D Thanks for help I've already received.

Thanks for the warm welcome and opportunity to link up with MBZers to better maintain our aging cars. My own 1976 300D is a 115chassis car. I recently replaced the starter motor, which was surprisingly easy to do, once I separated a drag-link or tie rod end. Now I'm having issues with my preglow and starter solenoid circuits. The car is stored outside, so corroded terminations may be playing a role. Another idea is that there is an issue with a supply wire to the ignition switch, that needs to feed both functions. They did not fail at the same time though...

Hey, I'll peruse for posts that may apply to my issues, and throw in where I may be able to help.

Thanks again BenzWorld team!
