Hello FNG here 1985 300sd

New to the MBZ world, but not new to forum life.

So I currently own a 1985 MBZ 300sd that was purchased new in 1984 (first one in the US) infact it was the show room model and it was still on the boat when my mom purchased it. It was her second MBZ first was a 1978 300d. Well my mom passed away last month and now the car is mine, wanting to keep it but it has a few issues that I need to address before I can make it a daily.

It had been sitting for almost 11 years in the garage when I acquired it last month, drained the fuel, put a fresh fuel in, replaced filter, battery, and the damn thing fired first try.

Since then I have replaced the front input trans shaft seal (the reason it was parked in the first place), battery, AC compressor (still working on that), upper ball joints both sides, new tires and alignment, window guide (stupid plastic slider, drilled and tapped that cause beating with a hammer that close to a glass window is dumb), belts and maintenance stuff oil and filters, ah and the front emblem that some little SOB about 15 years ago decided that was better around his neck on a chain. It still needs a front drivers side fender, I found one just need to go get it from a local parts yard, and a windshield.

If you are so inclined to help I started a post on the AC issue here http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w126...ml#post4885626
Any help would be great.

Well that's about it on the MBZ
