Aloha from Moloka'i in Hawaii

Aloha All

My name is Levie Yamazaki-Gray. I live on the small island of Moloka'i in Hawaii. I own 3 300 td wagons - an 83 an 84 and an 85. I have converted two to run on WVO and have been running them that way for a couple of years. Feels good since diesel is $5.50 a gallon here. The third I just got and am thinking of chopping the back and turning it into an el Camino style mini p/u. I have an extra 617 engine and have also thought of trying to put it into a 4wd truck. Out of necessity I do all of my own work but am slowly learning through experience and the school of hard knocks. I would love to work out a trade with someone who knows more than me to come and stay in our guest apartment in exchange for teaching me some things and doing some maintenance catch-up on our cars. I would also appreciate any suggestions about an engine transplant and what trucks and trannies would lend themselves to that. Thanks for this forum and all the info that is here

With Aloha

Aloha from Montana!

What a beautiful place to live and run around with a diesel Mercedes!

Wish I knew your vehicle, that sounds like an outstanding offer! WOW!

Ethanol is the devil.
