hey everyone

New to Benz but no stranger to diesel. I have a 99 F250 PSD, love it to death. I have been eying a 3rd car as a spare and for family or friends to borrow if they have car troubles. Naturally, as per my compression ignition obsession, I've been looking at diesels. I would like to stay under $2500, not sure I'm going to get one but its a serious consideration. I have been looking at two, here is one, I'm pretty sure I could collect under $1k. As I am unfamiliar with the 300D, aside from the battery, are there any easy or obvious items that are common to the 300D that keep this from starting? Maybe its just a bad alt...

86 Mercedes 300 turbo diesel

Thanks in advance. I may be hanging around a bit more shortly!
