hi, I just wanted to introduce myself to the MB forums and i figured i would check in so i can fall inline. I am from Pennsylvania and i just picked up a 1985 300D with 322,568 and still going. I just had the car inspected and it needed 1 tire and a tail light. The car runs well but is in need of solid maintaince. I am baselining everthing now and Just had the oil changed air filter fuel filter trans filter powersteering filter and the fluid in the rear. I just had a Brand new Interstate battery installed Last week. 2 new cooper weathermaster snow tires and soon to come shocks. This is my first MB and im very surprised how well it is made. All lights and switches work as they should including the doorlocks and windows. I just received my Hazet wrenches and will be adjusting the valves in the next week or so. Car starts in 5 degree weather with no troubles as long as it is plugged in. Im looking for new glow plugs the bosch fast ones. Any direction or help would be Great and thanks for taking the time to read about this journey.
