my old merc

Hi, I laid my '93 250D up when I bought the E300. I bought this to tow a caravan, which we kept for a year and sold. I could not get away with the 300, t was a lot nippier than my old 250, but a lot heavier and obese. now the 300 has been sold, I want my 250 back on the road. It has 278,000 on the clock, a new auto box at 240,000, and purrs at me. however, when I sarted it up, it regurgitated gearbox oil from the sump guard, and worse still, It would not turn off on the key. I had all the unions on the fuel filter loose, but finally loosened all of the injector pipes before it would die. It did'nt want to, but with the fuel splattering all over, it had no option. the back brakes were also siezed, and the radiator has gone mouldy with the damp. I don't know if this is an economic reair. your views wold be welcome. Wd the cat
