1975 300D - Will she start?
HI, I'm a new member here. I just took possession of my father's 1975 300D. The car has been stored indoors for the last 5 years.
I installed a new battery, put new fuel in the car, pressed the primer button many times, but she won't start.
I unscrewed the nuts on the fuel lines from the injector pump to bleed out any air that might be there and to see if fuel is flowing. There is fuel coming out of 4 of the fuel lines. The first fuel line however produces nothing it appears. Also, I noticed that the glow plug for the first cylinder gets hot, but the others are cold. Should they all be getting hot?
I know nothing about diesel engines and would love to get this thing to start.
