new benz owner :)

Hello all!
I joined this site to help with any questions I may have in the future with my "new" 85 300D.

Eventually I'd like to either brew my own biodiesel or add a tank to run on wvo, time will tell. Until then I've only put B20 in the tank and she runs great.

I am having issues with the aux/ac fan. I just replaced the relay, no voltage at the fan, tried jumpering the wires(as suggested in a thread here) to run the fan all the time regardless of temp settings, still no voltage at the fan. Took fan apart and cleaned it all up, connected to 12v supply and nearly took a finger of, the fan spins wicked fast! I'm about to just wire the fan with its own fuse to a switch...

That is all.
