Hi Everyone!

I'm now just getting back into diesel engine repair and maintenance after being away from it for about twenty years. My Dad always had a MB diesel and always did 100% of the repairs. I always helped him with the repairs and in turn we had a great time together and I learned a lot. We did everything from A/C repair to changing head gaskets, etc.

My folks just gave me their last diesel, a 300D-turbo, and given its long history in the family and sentimental value, I intend to get this car into full operating condition and use it for my regular commute. This car is in what I believe is a very restorable condition.

I've now found this forum for help and research. Only thing now that I need is a great mail-order parts provider for 1985 300D parts....... any suggestions ??
