85 300D update

We bought our car as third owners seven years ago and it has around 350k.
Benzworld became a treasured source to answer questions and I joined right away.

Exhaust system, under carriage for engine (?), transmission bracket (?), drive shafts, u-joints, motor mounts, new rear axels, new brakes, new radiator and hoses, new belts, new AC compressor, new shocks, new injector nozzles, glow plugs, fuel injector piping assembly, air cleaner mounting bracket, tires, radio, antenna, used console, battery, dash board hard cover, and recently a return to the muffler shop for a flexible coupling.

I drive it for my job, 300-600 miles a week up steep mountains. My biggest issue is the worsening transmission leak but the engine runs really strong.

So it is broken-in?
Transmission seals leaking close to 40 years mark? Don't think you should complain.
