Hello !

I've been lurkin' and reading up on the intricacies of vintage MB here for some time.
I appreciate how y'all steer the new MB owners through the maze of diagnosing and ultimately making things right with these classic machines.

I decided to join the forum when I zeroed in on a pampered 84 300d and was able to intelligently determine the value of the car, based on many hours of scouring through your posts of how to troubleshoot, diagnose and DYI repairs in areas that are unique in a lot of respects to Mercedes Benz.

I almost jumped at a couple of other cars but kept hearing " if there are no service records, walk away" ... so I did.

The 84 that I decided on has 26 years of records, including very tank of fuel used AND one master mechanic that has serviced the car for the last 12 years!

I'm not new to wrenching by any means but have yet to enter the MB maze, until now.
Kudos for the patience and skill that the 'veterans' exhibit on helping others realize their dream of owning,maintaining and driving these fine cars.
I'm looking forward to dialogues yet to come.
