New Benz owner

Hello everyone, I just acquired a 1984 300D turbo and was debating on selling it or keeping it for a veggie car. The interior is great and mostly everything works. It is white with a blue interior and the previous owners took great care of it. It has 102,000 miles on it. I just got it inspected and have been driving it for a bout two weeks now. The only thing I can see is the tranny shifts rough sometimes and at 60 the tach is about 3000 and the oil guage pegs at four when the accelerator is presed. I have never owned a diesel before, let alone a Mercedes. It seems like a solid well built car. I live in central PA near Ebensburg. I might try taking it to a good tech if anyone lives around here and can suggest a good knowledgable one. I also have a 76 stingray that I was working on but I think I might choose to keep the Mercedes over the Vette. But I am still fighting over that decision. Any and all advice welcome. Thanks, John
