Unhappy 87 300D stalls whenever I stop it!

Hi all! Got a new to me, first mb that runs like a top, but stalls when I stop. Already replaced some injectors (my mechanic who doesn't know much about mercedes or diesels, small town) and checked out the fuel pump which looks fine. Changed out the fuel filters several times (it eats them like candy). Must tell you it was running biodiesel b4 I bought it, now running straight diesel.
Thinking about changing the tank screen and possibly cleaning out the tank, but have also read about the mysterious k40 module. Can't find it in the relay box by the firewall, and there doesn't seem to be anything behind the glovebox.
ANY help is greatly appreciated!! I feel like a fool, having bought this thing! Thanks in advance!
