greetings

hello everyone, two months ago i bought a 1983 300sd, yes, my first d! it shifted (really!!) hard, spilled oil and fuel all over, vibrated like crazy, and much more. yes im stubborn to the stupid side. after much reading here the beast has driven from central ny to florida and several trips to boston, THANKS! the mechanic that owned it before me removed vacuum lines, the turbo line also was cut free from the alda. the old silver IP rack pin was very tired. motor mounts metal on metal. valve cover and injector return leaking badly. i think the hardest problem was the recreation of the vacuum lines. i have also run a bunch wvo. installing a 2 tank system. in for a penny !!!! i have a love hate with this thing, anything that will run like a top if your not afraid to pull over and tweek it, dirty hand are a sign of a vintage diesel lover. i thank anyone reading this far and i hope to look to the good people on here for advice! thanks so much
