a couple problems with 1985 300
I'm working on a friend's 1985 300cd. First problem is pretty minor. My friend told me he thinks it is a 300cd, but a couple parts (secondary fuel filter for instance) don't seem to fit. I tried looking up the vin and the results said 300td, but it's not a wagon. Second problem is the engine mount. The bolt on the bottom side seems to be between a 10mm and 11mm. The bolt is slightly recessed so I'm not sure if that is why the socket doesn't want to fit on right. Third problem is the primer pump. It is the old white plastic type and it is leaking. The biggest "stubby" wrench I have is 18mm but it looks like I need about a 22mm. Any suggestions on how to fix the pump would be appreciated. Is there anyway to rebuild them?
